More about registration

You are required to speak with your adviser before registering (for fall/spring semesters) to discuss your schedule and to receive your PIN (Personal Identification Number) permitting registration. The PIN changes each semester, so you will not be able to use an old one. Your adviser's name is on your Degree Audit Report (DAR).

You must print and bring your Degree Audit Report (DAR) to your advising session.  


by signing up on an Advising Schedule posted on or near your adviser's office door—do not call! Don't wait until the last minute—if your adviser is unavailable then, your registration could be delayed—it is to your advantage to register at the earliest allowable date! Forgot your adviser's name? Look on your DAR.

B) BRING to the advising appointment TWO items: 
  1. your tentative schedule for fall semester; and
  2. your DAR (Degree Audit Report) from eSIS.
C) REGISTER online at the date and time given to you (and also after that time). 

It is to your advantage to register at the earliest eligible time!
