Frequent Asked Questions


  • How do I register?
    Watch this video and look through this Enrollment Quicklist. If, after that, you still have questions, contact us or schedule an appointment.

  • I am unable to register.
    1. Check that you're not too early:
    Registration is open April 22 for Summer and Fall semesters, and November 25 for the Spring semester, with advance registration April 2-21 and November 6-24 respectively.

    You can check your registration status, including dates and any holds preventing registration:
    Banner > Prepare for Registration.

    2. Be sure there are no requirements that you do not meet; some courses are restricted by major or year, or have prerequisites. If you believe you need the course in question despite not meeting these requirements, email us, or schedule an appointment.

  • A class I need in order to graduate is full.
    Don't worry; email us, or schedule an appointment to be added.
  • I am unable to find or add a class I want.
    If you know a class is being offered, and you know the CRN, you can add it manually:
    Banner > Register for Classes > Enter CRNs (tab under "Register for Classes" at the top).
  • A class I added has only 1 credit hour, but I know it should have more.
    Some classes allow you to enter credits manually. These default to 1 credit. You can change the number of credits after the class has been added: Variable credit instructions.
