February 2018 Announcements 

Want to add to your Spring course schedule?
Add a Spring 12-week or Minisession II course!

If you were unable to register for a regular Spring course, consider registering for a Spring 12-week or Minisession II course. See dates below. These courses are accelerated, so be ready for a fast-paced session!

To see your needed classes, locate your Program Evaluation in Online Services under “Student Planning” on the left side of your screen. Learn more in the “Plan your college pathway”guide under “Degree Planning Guide.” Visit Academic Advising if you need help.

Check out the new way to register for classes in Student Planning!

In the “Plan your college pathway”guide, select the button for “Download Registration Guide.” Follow the step-by-step instructions to get registered.

Adding a class to a semester plan does not register you. You must select the "Register Now" button to get registered. When your classes are listed in green ink, you are registered. You will get a confirmatory email about your registration.

Graduating in May?
