Registration Advising

What is Registration Advising?

It is your opportunity to plan your courses for next semester, meet with your Advisor, and then register for classes. This meeting is mandatory for all students. Students must prepare for their advising meeting and come ready to discuss course selection, academic progress, graduation requirements, etc.

When Should I See My Advisor for Registration Advising?

  • If you are eligible to register online meet with your Advisor beginning the 7th week of the semester once you know what classes you want to obtain your PIN
    • You do not need the class schedule to be available because you have the freedom to create and change your schedule when you register online
  • If you must register in person, meet with your Advisor after the online class schedule is available and once you know what classes and schedule you want
    • You need the class schedule to be available because when you register in person you must have your registration form signed with selected classes
  • Keep in mind that Advisors will get busier as registration approaches, so meet him/ her early to avoid long waits!
