How do I... Register for Classes?

Registration Check-List
  1. Check your registration queue time or appointment time to learn the earliest date you can register for classes for the upcoming semester. A queue time is assigned to each student each semester.
  2. Check for holds on your record, and for the names of the offices where you can clear them. If you have a hold for a past due balance, an immunization form, a library fine, or another hold that prevents your registration, you must clear it before you can register for classes. Clear your holds as soon as possible.
  3. Review your APAS Report for each major and minor to see which courses you still need.
  4. Use Graduation Planner to plan out your courses for the next few semesters. Some students like to plan all the way through graduation to understand what is expected of the declared major. REMINDER: Planning courses through Grad Planner does not register you for the courses.
  5. Schedule an appointment with your adviser
  6. During your advising appointment review your Graduation Plan and APAS report to ensure you are on track with your major. Be sure to bring a list of questions (degree requirements, elective options, study abroad, internships, etc.).
  7. Use the Class Search to look up the classes you are interested in. You will be able to tell the days and times the course is offered and how many seats are still open. Copy down the 5 digit registration number for the class you want to take. You will need this when you register for classes. Note: Always have a list of back-up courses in case a class fills.
  8. Utilize the planning worksheet or registration worksheet to plan out your classes.
  9. Get permission numbers if your course requires instructor, department, or college approval. Note: All permission numbers expire after the end of the second week of the term.
  10. Know your health insurance information, as you will be asked to provide this when you register for classes. You need to know the: company name, policy id number, and customer service telephone number. If you register for more than 6 credits and do not provide your health insurance information, you will be charged for the University insurance plan .
  11. Register on time. You may register during or after your queue time (see #1 above), but be advised that courses fill quickly.
  12. If your class is closed, use the WaitList option, if it is available, or review the class closed procedures.
  13. If you are enrolling in more than 20 credits or trying to register for overlapping classes, complete the indicated forms. Be sure to obtain instructor/advisor approval. Then submit this form to the OneStop / Student Assistance Center in 23 Solon Campus Center.
