Students: This spring, there is a new way to plan for your course registration and enrollment. “Vergil” is a web application that brings everything you need to shop for courses to one convenient location. Vergil will significantly enhance your course planning while eliminating the need to access multiple tools and separate sources of course information. Vergil is your “one-stop shop.”
Vergil contains consolidated course information from the Directory of Classes (DOC), CourseWorks, and school bulletins, and allows you to search for courses by instructor, date and time, department, subject area, key words, and more.

Browse courses intuitively while simultaneously accessing course information for multiple terms.
