Curious how course registration works now that your Falcon is a current student? For starters, as you may assume, it is very different from the New Student Registration day your student attended in summer.
Spring registration began on Nov. 5 and your student is able to register soon after that date. Which day your student registers depends on how many credits and credits in-progress they have and whether or not they are part of the Honors Program. Students will be able to find when they are able to register for classes on their eSIS account under Enrollment Dates on their Student Center page. It is important to note that they are able to register for classes after that date as well until the add/drop deadline once the spring semester begins.
So, there are a couple steps your student needs to complete before they are ready and able to register for spring semester classes.
1) Check out their Degree Audit Report (DAR). This is a record of a student’s academic progress for their specific degree program. It includes all completed coursework, in-progress coursework, and transfer credits to evaluate whether a student has met degree requirements. This is a very useful tool for students to know which courses they must enroll in and which degree requirements have more flexibility.
2) Meet with their academic adviser. First-year students must meet with their academic adviser before they register for courses. To register, students need a PIN number, and they receive their PIN number from their adviser. However, it is also important for students to come prepared to these meetings with the courses they would like to enroll in and with any questions. Meeting with advisers are not only necessary, but a good habit to get into so students can ensure they are on track to graduate.
3) Registering! After they meet with their adviser, they can enter their PIN number into eSIS and wait for their enrollment date to come!
That’s all there is to it folks! If your student has any questions or concerns, they can reach out to the Registrar’s Office at 715-425-3342 or ask their adviser.
