Registration Process

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. You should come prepared with questions, a general understanding of your major requirements, and a list of potential classes you wish to take for a specific semester. Your prep does not need to be perfect as your advisor will give you guidance. Below you will find links to assist you in preparing for registration and your appointment:
