Spring 2017  registration will take place in NEST beginning Monday, November 14. The schedule for registration times can be found on the Spring 2017 Registration calendar page, and will be available on October 31, 2016

We have created some helpful documents below that outline how to navigate through NEST to register when Spring 2017 registration opens.

How To Look Up Classes Instructional Video

We have created a step-by-step instructional video on how to look up classes using the "Look Up Classes" option in NEST. This guide walks you through all the steps from logging into NEST to recording your Course Registration Numbers necessary for registration. Learn more on how to look up classes.

Mandatory Advising

If you are an Undergraduate who is a first-year student, undeclared, on academic action (probation, readmitted from suspension or dismissal), in EOF, athletes confirmed (formerly known as special admit athletes) or an Anthropology or Earth and Environmental Sciences major you are required to meet with your advisor in order to register for classes. Your advisor will be providing you with a PIN that you will use for registration. Find out where to enter this PIN prior to registration. Make sure you select your SPRING 2017 PIN for registration. It will not be the same as your FALL 2017 PIN.

Reading the Class Schedule

You can access the University Schedule of Classes, Spring 2017 under the "Register for Classes” tab at the top of your NEST portal. Learn how to read the class schedule.

Registering for Classes

Once you have met with your academic advisor (Not required but recommended for graduate students), make sure there are no holds on your account and have a plan of action to create your schedule, you are ready to register. Please note: The schedule for registration times will be posted to the Registrar's website on Monday, October 31. Find out how to register for classes.

Faculty

Faculty can access a walk-through on how to use Self Service Banner (SSB) to manage their class schedules.

Spring 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 an Undergraduate Course Permission Form.

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. Remember that your Spring 2017 PIN will be a different pin than that you used for Fall 2016.

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?

Grades for fall will be in NEST. Transcripts should be viewed in WESS until December 2016 while our data migration is in progress.
