Registration Instructions for Undergraduate Students

Resolving a Hold on Your Student Account


Step 1: Academic Advising in Advisor's Office

  • Advising period begins Monday, April 5th and continues through Friday, April 23rd.

Only your assigned academic advisor listed on Self-Service may authorize you for registration in the system. In the event you are unable to register for courses via Self-Service, registration forms must be completed and signed by your advisor. Keep a copy of your approved registration form as a backup and, if you are registering for any courses that need faculty approval, your registration form 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 by using the Registration Drop/Add form in person in the Registrar’s office, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m or via email (

Step 2: Clear Holds on your Account

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. Failure to clear holds may result in blocked registration. 

Step 3: Registration 

The order of registration is determined by current class standing based on credits earned (does not count enrollment for the current semester in progress). Once registration is open for your class, it continues to be open until classes begin. 

The schedule for Winter and Spring 2021 registration is as follows:
