Welcome Seahawk!

Maximize Your Opportunity
Register as Early as You Can

May is Registration Season! Good News: once your registration is open, it remains open. Register anytime on or after the date and time displayed in Student Planning.

  1. Before your registration opens: Learn how to use Student Planning to plan and select sections - the days and time you want to take your classes

  2. Add courses to the fall semester in Student Planning. Use the Program Map for your major, plan the courses listed for the first semester.

  3. Build your schedule in Student Planning by selecting a section for each course on your plan. A section is the specific day/time your want to take each course.

  4. Select the Blue Register buttons in Student Planning. Congratulations! You registered for your classes! Time to RELAX!

No need to meet with anyone to register for classes, unless you have a question or need help.

ProTip: if your first choices are full: add yourself to the section waitlist and/or have a couple backup sections ready to plug into your schedule.
