Students regardless of rank may register themselves for classes during their registration window. 

Students must meet with their advisor - EACH SEMESTER - to receive an individual pin number before scheduling classes. 

Students who have declared majors must meet with their assigned advisors in their major. Undeclared students must meet with an advisor in the Office of Exploratory Advising, Room 317 Turley Center, by appointment.

It remains vitally important that you meet with your academic advisor before you schedule your classes. Your advisor will help to ensure that you take courses in the appropriate order to increase the likelihood that you will graduate within your timeframe. Some courses are offered only once per year or once every two years. Working with your advisor will ensure you don't miss a needed course. Your advisor can also serve as a mentor, providing valuable information about your chosen field.
