Classes + Enrollment

Enrollment

Use Student Center to request classes for the upcoming semester during your three-day pre-enrollment appointment, and to add, drop or swap classes for the current semester during the add/drop period. For detailed instructions see how to add a class, or make changes to your class requests

Choose your classes. If you are a new student enrolling over the summer, follow the guidelines sent by your college about choosing classes. You will have an opportunity to meet with your advisor when you arrive on campus.

Continuing students enrolling during the fall or spring semester for the next semester should contact their advisors. Advisors approach course enrollment and add/drop differently. Some may want to work with you to enter classes, others may want you to have already entered your class requests before you see them. Be sure that you know your advisor's preferences.

Tools to assist with enrollment selection:

  • The Courses of Study contains the catalog of course descriptions for the academic year. Use it to browse course offerings in which you may want to enroll.
  • The Class Roster is the schedule of classes for a specific semester and reflects when and where classes will be taught. Use it to search for classes by department, meeting pattern, instructor and other options, and to save classes to a list of favorites. Find the Class Number at the left of the specific class you are interested in; you can use that number to expedite enrollment through Student Center. Scheduler is a semester visualization and planning tool within the Class Roster.
  • Student Center is the most current source for class information, and in addition to Class Search it provides access to tools such as My Academics and My Planner.

Enroll through Student Center. In addition to searching for classes, there are two other ways to enroll through Student Center: enroll from My Planner, and enroll from My Requirements. Regardless of which method you choose, there are three basic steps to adding a class:

  1. Select a Class (and set Enrollment Preferences);
  2. Confirm Your Request; and
  3. Finish Enrolling. Look for the green check mark!

You can enter your classes one at a time (i.e., enter your highest priority class first and complete all three steps, then do the next class, etc.) or enter all of your classes in the “shopping cart” and then complete steps 2 and 3. Just remember that your request is not submitted until you’ve completed step three.

If you cannot access enrollment during your assigned enrollment appointment or during the add/drop period, please see the Classes and Enrollment FAQ.

Make changes to your class requests. During pre-enrollment and add/drop periods, you can log in as many times as you like, 24 hours a day, to adjust your requests. You can add, drop, swap or edit classes. Swapping classes ensures the one you want to add is open before dropping you from the class for which you’re already enrolled. See the Classes and Enrollment FAQ for more on how to swap classes.

Important Tips

  • Protect your data. Quit your browser to log out. To ensure no one can come in after you and see your personal information (SSN included) always quit the browser completely to log out when you’re done with Student Center.
  • Do not click more than once on any given action. This could slow down your response time significantly.
  • Do not open multiple sessions of Student Center to process enrollment requests; this can cause your requests to become stuck in pending status.
  • To get back to the home page from anywhere in Student Center, look for the drop-down box (always in the upper right and lower left corners of a page), choose Student Center and click the >> button.
  • If you use third-party scheduling tools, e.g. Coursepad, College Scheduler, Chequerd, Schedulizer: These sites are not endorsed or supported by the University and may contain incorrect or outdated information. A University-supported Scheduler application is available in the Class Roster.
