Overview

Students are assigned a registration date and time based on their:
  • Class level
  • Total earned and in-progress credits. Transfer credits are included in your earned credits.

The registration process consists of two different phases. Students may register during their assigned registration time for that phase or at a later time until the end of the phase.

  • Phase 1 allows registration in a maximum of 16 credits (undergraduate students). Waitlist is not available.
  • Phase 2 allows registration in a maximum of 19 credits (undergraduate students). Waitlist available for classes with open waitlist spots.

Summer Term: There is no priority registration and registration PIN assignment for summer term. Registration for summer term begins at 7:00 AM on the same day for all students. Check the Academic Calendar for key registration dates and deadlines.

Registration PIN

  • All degree-seeking undergraduates (including postbaccs) must have a registration PIN (Personal Identification Number) to register for classes.
  • Registration PINs are provided by colleges at the time of advising.
  • Graduate students and non-degree students are not required to have registration PINs.

Newly Admitted Students must attend a START orientation and meet with an advisor before registering for classes. Visit the Office of Student Orientation for details about new student orientation and advising programs. When you have completed the START orientation and advising session, you will get a registration PIN that you must enter at registration.

Non-degree Online Students with Ecampus need to complete the Nondegree Online Orientation. Once you complete the orientation, you will receive a registration PIN that will give you access to register for courses.
