You should register for courses via Self Service. If you have not registered for courses using Self Service, we encourage you to review the Self Service Registration instructions prior to registration.
Your Adviser must authorize your Self Service account for you to register. Your Adviser is listed in Self Service at the bottom of your Course Schedule. If you have more than one Adviser, either one can authorize your registration. Because only your Adviser can authorize your registration, it is very important that your correct Adviser is listed in the system. If you are changing your Major and Adviser, you MUST follow the online process on our website to change your major.
You will not be able to register if there is a HOLD on your account. Most HOLDS are for unpaid balances. You must contact the Student Accounts Office about these. There may also be a HOLD if you did not register for Housing for next year. You must contact the Residence Life Office about these.
Students are permitted to enroll in 1-2 courses during the Interim semester. This is a separate semester from Spring semester and all courses will be offered online during the semester. Due to the accelerated nature of the courses, you should discuss your plans to enroll in 2 courses with your advisor prior to enrolling. If your advisor approves of you enrolling in 2 courses, your advisor should notify the Registrar’s Office at email@example.com.
The semester is divided into two 7.5-week sessions. You should enroll in a maximum of 2 units per session with at least 2 units in the 1st session if you are receiving financial aid. As before, a “1” or a “2” in the section number for Spring semester courses denotes the session of the course. Please review the advanced search options explained below to help you find 1st and 2nd session courses.

Below are some brief videos demonstrating some of the advanced search features in Self Service. We hope you find these helpful to aid in your registration planning for spring semester.
