Step 1: Academic Advising in Adviser's Office

Advising for full-time students: Friday, April 10

Advising for part-time students: Monday, March 30 – Friday, April 10

Only your assigned academic adviser, listed on Self-Service, may authorize you for registration. Registration cards must be completed and signed by your adviser. Keep your approved registration card as a backup and, if you are registering for any courses that need faculty approval, your registration card will be needed for processing these course registrations in the registrar’s office.

  • Prerequisites: You may register only for courses for which you have met the required prerequisites.
  • Select alternate courses in case your first choices are full.

Department chair and instructor signatures are needed for independent studies and X-credits. Instructor signatures are also needed for departmental honors and any course which requires the permission of the instructor to enroll. Registration for any of these course types must be done in person in the registrar’s office, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Step 2: Clear Accounts

Resolve any holds placed on your account, such as those noted by accounting, registrar’s office, Library, Health Center or Residence Life/Dean of Students.

Step 3: Registration

The order of registration is determined by current class standing. Once registration is open for your class, it continues to be open until classes begin.
