Registration Process

Before Students Can Register

In order to register for classes, students must schedule an appointment with their academic advisor to receive advising and a registration PIN. (*Note-registration pins change each semester so students must see advisor each semester.) Registration for the spring semester usually occurs after fall break; registration for the fall & summer semesters usually occurs after spring break. For best availability, students should plan to see academic advisor at least 2-3 weeks before break. 

Prior to registering for classes, students should check Banner for any holds that will prevent course registration. If you have a hold, contact the appropriate office to have it remedied. See HOLDS.

Prior to Your Advising Appointment

Before meeting with your advisor, students should be prepared. This means students should complete the registration worksheet and bring it to their advising appointment. You can download a copy of the worksheet here – Registration Worksheet (word) or Registration Worksheet (pdf)

Important to Remember

  • Take any placements tests you need (math, foreign language, etc)
  • Check for holds on your account by going to Banner > Student Records > View Holds. You will not be able to register if you have a hold.
  • Pay your tuition before the deadline so that your schedule is not canceled. See the Cashiers website for important dates each semester.
  • Plan out your schedule (days/times/CRN#'s) prior to registering for classes and have back-up courses.
  • If you are changing (or thinking about changing) your major, please let your current advisor know immediately. You can also visit the Choosing a Major website for additional help.
