Register for Courses
For assistance in how to ADD a course or DROP a course, please use the online tutorial available through the HELP menu option on the right side of the menu bar.
- To ADD a course simply click on “ADD” displayed beside the lecture.
TIP – By scrolling over the elements of the courses listed you can reference the course name, restrictions and other course information.
Your course additions will show in the List of Registered Courses for Current Registration Period and a confirmation message of “You have successfully added (course information)” will display.
If a course offering is listed on the timetable but is not showing as available in Register, the course is full. You must register in an alternate section of this course on your assigned campus. If you are unable to register in a section on your campus, do NOT register on the other campus as those spaces are reserved. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
- To DROP a course, click on the “DROP” link shown on List of Registered Courses for Current Registration Period. A confirmation message will display to verify the change made and the list of registered courses will be updated.
At any time you may access a Complete List of Courses through the link at the end of this page (note, this is an overnight update).
Check for Conflicts
You will need to check for course conflicts. Go to StudentSchedule to view your schedule and potential course timetable conflicts (use link at the end of the registration page). Any potential conflicts will be shown here, indicated by an orange “conflict exists” block. If you have a potential conflict, first check the durations to confirm whether the courses are actually in conflict as some courses running in the same term but different durations will show as potential conflicts. If you still have a genuine conflict, make note of the conflict and search for an alternative offering. (NOTE: This may be an overnight update).
