  • Registration Need to Know

    Registration for classes is done via the web by logging into your e-services account with your Dragon ID and Password. Registration generally begins in the middle of the current term and continues through the fifth day of the term being enrolled in.

    Registration Window:

    • Click on “Registration Window”
    • Change the semester if needed. (Click on “Registration Window” again if you need to change the semester).
    • Once the schedule is available on the eservices site you will be able to see when you can register. The date given will be the earliest date you are allowed to add or drop a course from your schedule.

    Registration Access Code:

    Students are required to meet with their advisor to obtain their access code to register.

    Search for a Course:

    Search for courses for the semester. Click on “Expand/Collapse for Advanced Search” for more specific search criteria.

    To Add a Course:

    • Click on (+) next to course and it will be added to your “Wish List”
    • A full term class may be added through the fifth class day of the term, except for courses which begin later in the semester. For courses which begin later, check with the Records Office.
    • After the fifth class day, a student can no longer add courses via the web. A “registration permit” will be required to add any courses and must be processed in the Records Office. The permit must be signed by the student and the instructor of the course.

    Review My Plan:

    This area will display all Wish List, Wait List and Registered Courses. Students will also complete their course registration through this page.

    View/Modify Schedule:

    It is the student’s responsibility to verify their schedule is correct. Your current schedule will appear and can be printed from this screen.

    To Drop/Withdraw from a Course:

    • Click on "View/Modify Schedule"
    • Click on the Course ID# of the course you want to drop
    • Choose "Drop/Withdraw" from the drop-down menu. Click on "Process" and follow the additional instructions on the screen.

    Please Note:

    • No entry will be made in a student’s record if a class is dropped within the first five class days of a semester. Courses after the fifth day are considered “Withdrawals” and will appear on the student’s record as a “W”.
    • Withdrawal dates have changed as of December 2012. Only full term courses will have a common “last day to withdraw” date. Please check the semester calendar for this date.
    • Students are able to see the last day in which they have to withdraw by looking at their student schedule in e-services.

    Class Permissions and Overrides:

    • After the fifth class day, a student can no longer add courses via the web. A “registration permit” will be required to add any courses and must be processed in the Records Office. The permit must be signed by the student and the instructor of the course. The Registration Permit can be found under “Forms.”
    • Some courses are set up to require special permission from the instructor in order to enroll. You would need to contact the instructor in order to gain permission to register.
    • If a course requires an override by an instructor, it is important to note that the override DOES NOT REGISTER THE STUDENT in the course. The student must also register via the web or the Records Office.

    Excess Credit:

    To register for more than 18 credits during any semester (nine credits during a summer session) students with fewer than 60 earned credits must fill out an Excess Credit Form. This form must be signed by both the student’s advisor and the College Dean. The Excess Credit Form can be found under “Forms.”

    Holds:

    Check for registration holds before your registration window opens. If you have a HOLD that is preventing you from registering, visit the department that placed the hold to find out what you need to do to have it lifted. Some common holds are for immunization records, transcripts, financial obligations, academic warnings, etc.

    Waitlists:

    Wait Lists are lists of students waiting to get registered for particular classes that are currently full. Students are kept in the order that they place themselves on the list and when a seat opens up, the first person on the list will be offered that seat (notified via university email). The student will have 24 hours after being notified to go to e-services and register for the course. If they do not register within the 24 hour time frame, the next student on the list will be given the open seat offer.

    Prerequisites:

    Some departments have courses for which you cannot register unless you have completed other courses or have completed and received certain scores on various tests (ACT, SAT, Accuplacer, etc).
