During registration week, November 3-6, the Registrar’s Office will be open to assist students with registration questions from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Thursday.

There is no reason to miss class to register! You can register any time after your registration start time.

Please Remember:

Courses requiring INSTRUCTOR’S CONSENT will not be available for online processing. Submit an add/drop form per the instructions as described below.

If you do not have a needed PREREQUISITE for a course, you must obtain the instructor’s signature to add the class with an add/drop slip and submit as described below.

Some courses are set up with COREQUISITES (like science courses with labs).  You should register for the lab first and then the class.

After you register, print your schedule and SAVE YOUR PRINTOUT as your confirmation.  If classes do not print on your schedule, you are not registered.

Please keep in mind that there may be changes to the course schedule. Classes may be cancelled, new classes added, times and days may change, room assignments may change, caps may change and/or course fees may be added.

  • Enter WebAdvisor, select Student Menu, then Register for Sections, then Register for Previously Selected Sections. 
  • From the pull down menu under ACTION on the left, select your action. You may mark each class you wish as “Register” and click submit at the bottom of the page. You may remove courses from your list by marking “remove” and submit.
  • After submitting, please notice the messages that indicate which classes actually registered and which did not and the reason.
  • Need to add sections to your Preferred List?  Return to Search & Register or Express Registration and continue as above.
  • When you have finished registering, confirm your registration by going to “My Class Schedule” and PRINT a copy (keep this printout as your receipt). If your schedule is not visible, you are not registered.  Come to the Registrar’s Office for assistance.
  • Please log out of WebAdvisor when finished.


If you need an add/drop slip because you need instructor's consent (a class is full, you don't have a required prerequisite or co-requisite, etc.), adding and dropping classes has changed from a paper to an online process.

To access the website, go to Secure Add/Drop sign in.

  • Follow the instruction on the online form.
  • The request will be submitted online first to the instructor of the course.
  • If the instructor approves, it will be forwarded to you academic advisor for approval.
  • If your advisor approves, the request will be sent to the Registrar's Office for processing. When the add or drop is complete, the Registrar's Office will send you an email asking you to check your schedule on WebAdvisor.
