Before your appointment—Completely fill out your course Registration form. To do this you will:

  • Fill out the Semester Questionnaire in your appointment letter envelope.
  • Review the online catalog ( to determine what major and cognate courses are required for your major for the spring semester.
  • Review your CAPP to determine your progress in completing required general education courses. Decide which ones you would like to complete in the fall.
  • Use the purple sheet to guide you in accessing the online course search. Look up the courses you plan to take. Choose the specific sections for which you intend to register.
  • Put all course information on the Course Registration Form. Don’t forget to record all the CRNs and days and times for each course. (see example)

On the day of your appointment—arrive on time for your appointment.

Bring your completed Semester Planning Guide and your completed Course Registration Form. At this appointment, you will discuss your intended schedule with an academic adviser. Once your adviser approves your schedule, he or she will give you a registration term PIN.

On Registration Day
