Fall 2017 Registration FAQs
What if you are blocked from repeating a course that you have taken one or more time in prior terms?
Per University Academic Policy, undergraduate students are permitted to repeat a course only in which they have received a final grade of D+, D, D- or F. They are not permitted to repeat a course in which they received a C- or higher without special permission. Graduate students are not permitted to repeat courses without special permission. (Certain “repeatable” courses, like a music lessons, independent studies, coops, special topics courses are exceptions).
For permission to repeat a course for which you have earned a C- or higher, see either the Dean’s Office of the College/School of your major or the Dean’s Office of the College/School in which the course is offered. Graduate students must see the Dean’s Office of the Graduate School.
Please fill out the Request To Repeat Course.
How are Permits handled?
Permits may be issued by Department Chairpersons. Students who wish to obtain a permit to enter a closed course, or a course in which they have not met the pre-req, co-req or other requirements, may visit the appropriate academic department for assistance.
How do I find the PINS? (Students with Mandatory advising ONLY)
Students who are required to have mandatory advising will need a Registration PIN to register. While you are meeting with your advisor, you will receive this PIN. Students will be asked to hold on to this PIN, as they will need it for any future drop/adds or withdrawals from classes. Each semester, a new PIN will be issued and needed for registration.
How are applications for graduation being handled?
Students who wish to apply for graduation must do so online through NEST. Undergraduates who have earned 90 hours may, graduate students who have earned 20 hours will see the option to apply to graduate when they click on this link.
How are address changes, name changes, social security changes being handled?
Students can change their mailing address through NEST in Banner. Students who wish to make a change to their permanent address, or for name and social security changes please follow the instructions on the Registrar’s website, submitting required documents in person to this office.
How is grading handled right now and through this year?
