    • 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.

    You are required to meet with your advisor to obtain you access code to register. Access codes are not needed for registration for summer. Graduate students or students with previous degrees do NOT need an access code to register for any courses.

    Search for courses for the semester.

    In order to register for an actual course, you will need to login to eServices. Pay close attention to the course title, course number, and course ID as you will need to know all three of these items to assure placement into the correct course.

    Once you have found a course and selected it from the list, you can click on the title of the course. This will take you to a screen that includes more information on meeting time, a course description, any registration restrictions or prerequisites, and any special notes the instructor wants you to know about the course before it begins. It also includes the approximate tuition and fees you will be charged for the 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 Registrar's Office.
    • After the fifth class day, you can no longer add courses via the web. A “registration permit” will be required to add any courses and must be processed in the Registrar's Office. The permit must be signed by you and the instructor of the course.

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

    It is your responsibility to verify your schedule is correct. Your current schedule will appear and can be printed from this screen.

    • 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 your record as a “W”.
    • Only full term courses will have a common “last day to withdraw” date. Please check the semester calendar for this date.
    • You are able to see the last day in which you have to withdraw by looking at your student schedule in eServices.
    • Students may continue to drop classes after the fifth day of class, but will receive a 'W' on their academic record and will remain financially responsible for tuition and fees.
    • Withdrawal deadlines vary for half term and full-term sessions. We advise checking the schedule in eServices for specific withdrawal deadlines for each course.
    • After the fifth class day, you can no longer add courses via the web. A “registration permit” will be required to add any courses and must be processed in the Registrar's Office. The permit must be signed by you 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. You must also register via the web or the Registrar's Office.

    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 your advisor and the College Dean. The Excess Credit Form can be found under “Forms.”

    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.

    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). You will have 24 hours after being notified to go to eServices and register for the course. If you do not register within the 24 hour time frame, the next student on the list will be given the open seat offer.

    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).
