Registration Times

Spring 2020 Registration Times

Spring 2020 registration begins the week of November 6. All students are designated a specific time they are able to begin registering for their spring 2020 classes.

Before You Register…

Be prepared and ready to go when your registration time begins. Check the steps…

  1. Schedule of Courses
    Check the Schedule of Courses for the spring 2020 semester and plan your classes.
  2. Academic Advising
    Developing a plan for completing your degree with the help of your Academic Advisor  is critical to your success. It is highly encouraged, and in some cases mandatory, that you meet with your Academic Advisor before registering for the spring 2020 semester. Review the course schedule with your advisor.Your Academic Advisor and their contact information is available in your Degree Works audit via NEST. For more information on Academic Advising, please visit the Red Hawk Central website.
  3. Registration PIN
    If academic advising is mandatory for you, your academic advisor will provide you with your own unique spring 2020 registration PIN that will enable you to register for courses in Banner, via NEST. This registration PIN is needed to unlock the system to you, and only you, to sign up for your classes. For more information on PINs, please visit the Registration PINs website.Please Note: Registration PINs are unique to a semester’s registration. PINs from previous semesters will not work when registering for spring 2020.
  4. Take Care of Holds…Before You Register!
    Holds are placed on student accounts when students have not paid their outstanding bill, or fine or completed paperwork required by the University. Some of these Holds will prevent you from registering for classes. For more information, please visit the Holds website.

Spring 2020 Registration Calendar

Designations – Based on Completed Coursework

To know when your registration time begins, check how many Earned Credits you have (credits for completed coursework as of August 31, 2019) in Degree Works via NEST. Remember: your registration designation time does not include any credits for courses in which you are currently enrolled.

It’s Only the Beginning!

Remember…

  • Registration times represent when you can begin to register, not the only time.
  • You are not excused from class to register for classes.
