Registration will be here before you know it! The fall 2023 course schedule will go live on NEST on Tuesday, March 14 and registration will begin for both fall 2023 and winter 2024 on Thursday, March 30.

Don’t forget – the Summer Session class schedule is live as well if you want to get ahead and knock out a class or two this summer.

Review Registration Times

These times are based on your earned credits as of January 31, 2023 and do not include currently enrolled credits for spring and/or summer 2023. Please Note: Registration times represent the FIRST time you can register, not the ONLY time. You are not excused from class to register. Take a Look!

See Your Advisor

First things first: meet with your academic advisor. You can make an appointment through Navigate on NEST. Your advisor understands your area(s) of academic interest and can support your achievement of your goals. Academic advising helps you develop an education plan for completing your degree and beyond and fosters your intellectual and personal development. Get More Information on Academic Advising.

Find Out if You Need a Registration PIN

You may need a PIN in order to register for classes.

All first-year students, pre-declared majors (undeclared students), undergraduate students majoring in Anthropology, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Geography, Sustainability Science, Political Science, Jurisprudence, Law and Society or Law and Governance, readmit students, transfer students and veteran students are required to meet with their advisor in order to receive a registration PIN. Please Note: Priority registration students will receive an email explaining how to obtain their “alternate PIN” before their registration time. Get More Information about PINs.

Check to See if You Have A Hold

Holds are placed on a student’s account when students have not completed necessary requirements established by the University or have not paid their outstanding bill. Please check your NEST account to ensure you do not have any holds blocking your registration access. If you have a hold, please use the information in NEST to follow up with the appropriate office to resolve the issue. Get More Info about Holds.
