Registration Information

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.

You can view the section offerings either via a Section Search in Self Service or by reviewing the course schedule bookletPlease note: the course schedule booklet is not regularly updated. Students are encouraged to view available course offerings in Self Service for current information.

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. You should contact the College office that applied the hold to learn more about how to have it removed.

Summer 2021

Students are permitted to enroll in a maximum of 2 simultaneous courses during the Summer semester (e.g., 2 each session or 1 full semester course and 1 in each session). All courses will be offered online during the semester.

Fall 2021

The semester returns to its standard 15-week format. Typically, students are permitted to enroll in a maximum of 4 units during the semester. Some exceptions to this rule are available in the Course Loads policy. Courses will continue to be offered in a mixture of in-person, hybrid, and online formats. To determine the instructional format for a course, you should review the “Type” designation in Self Service. Options are:

  • Course – course will be taught using the standard in-person format.
  • Hybrid Course – course will be taught using a mixture of online and in-person activities.
  • Online Course – course will be taught in fully online format, either synchronously (at a specific time) or asynchronously (no specific meeting time).
