New Student Registration

Step 1: Pre-registration

Register up to 11 credit hours
Saturday, August 20
     1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. for Transfer Students
     5:15 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. for New Students

Review the Open Course Listing. Search for open classes; see current and projected enrollments in REAL time.

Information about degree requirements or detailed course descriptions can be found in the Course Catalog.

All students register for classes using Banner. You'll register for a maximum of 11 credit hours during the first phase of registration. During Orientation, you'll be able to adjust your schedule and register for additional credits.

Step 2: Meeting With Your Faculty Advisor

You'll meet with your faculty advisor on Monday, August 22 (8:00 a.m. - 5 p.m.) during Orientation. Your orientation aide will provide you with additional information about signing up for an appointment with your faculty advisor.

At this meeting, you'll receive an Alternate PIN (which begins with the number 45) from your faculty advisor. You must have a PIN to register during the second registration and the add/drop periods.

Note: You cannot get this PIN from the University Registrar's Office or Academic Advising.

Step 3: Second Registration Period

Register up to 16 credit hours
Tuesday, August 23 from 7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.

When you enter the second registration period and the add/drop period, you'll use the Alternate PIN you received during your advising meeting. Once again, please note that you will not be able to register during this period without the six digit PIN number from your faculty advisor.

Step 4: Add/Drop Period

Register up to 18 credit hours
Begins Tuesday, August 23 at 3:00 p.m.
Ends Friday, September 2 at 11:59 p.m.

After September 2, you will be unable to add or drop any courses to your fall schedule.


If you've received an override from an instructor, you must add the class by 11:59 p.m. on September 2. Instructors DO NOT have the ability to register you for classes. You can view any overrides posted by faculty for you on the "Check Your Registration Status" page in Banner.


Beginning September 3, if you want to remove a course from your schedule, your only option (and only if you have 12 additional credits in other classes) is to withdraw from it. A withdrawal will result in a grade of "W" on your academic record for that course. A withdrawal to an underload (fewer than 12 credits of graded work) is not permitted without appeal.

All times listed are Eastern U.S. Time Zone.
