Course schedule

Important! Your advisor will release your record or give you an Alt PIN necessary for registration.

Contact your advisor

All degree-seeking students (with exceptions as noted below) are required to contact their advisor each semester in order to ensure progress towards a timely graduation and to obtain the Advisor Release/Alt PIN that is necessary for registration. The Advisor Release/Alt PIN is necessary for initial registration each semester. Alt PINs are removed from a student's account the night following initial registration. Students will not be prompted for an Alt PIN for future registration activity during that semester. Advisors have set aside additional time during Advisement for Success Kick-off (ASK) Week, specifically for student convenience. Students may contact their advisor by phone, by BearPass Email or by making an office visit.

Exceptions:

  • Degree-seeking first-time freshmen are required to attend STudent Advisement and Registration (STAR) and meet with an advisor
  • Dual-Credit students are required to meet with the coordinator of admissions

Review your registration status

  • Click on the My Enrollment tab,
  • Then within the Registration channel click on Registration Status and
  • select the appropriate term.

Any holds should be settled prior to registration by contacting the appropriate office.
