Schedule of Classes

Do I Need a Pin?

Some students will require a Registration PIN to register for classes. If you require a PIN to register, ask your Academic Advisor to provide this for you. Who Needs a PIN?

Academic Advising

You should connect with your academic advisor as soon as possible to create an educational plan for spring 2021. Advisors are available to you virtually via Zoom. Set up an appointment with them through Navigate. To find your academic advisor, log into NEST and view your Degree Works audit. Your advisor(s) will be listed in the header block. You can also check the Success Network on your Navigate homepage!

Take Care of Holds!

Holds are placed on your account when you have not completed required tasks established by the University or have not paid your outstanding bill. In some cases, these holds may prevent you from registering for classes! Your holds are listed on Degree Works in the header block.

Visit the Holds website to learn about common types of holds and how to resolve them.
