Important Tips for Registering Online
To select spring or January term (J-term), schedule an appointment to meet with your advisor beginning October 27. Following the advising appointment, your advisor will authorize you to register in Self-Service.
Before selecting course sections in Self-Service, pick up a printed class schedule in the Registrar’s Office (available beginning October 27) or refer to the online schedule. The printed/online schedule includes course-specific notes that do not appear in Self-Service, including instructor permission requirements, course type (synchronous online, asynchronous online, online with occasional in-person meetings), etc. The online/printed schedule is a valuable resource, especially for students who select the online option for spring 2021.
When courses are selected and submitted for advisor approval, your advisor will receive an email message indicating that you have courses ready for review. After the advisor approves/denies each course, you will receive an email message indicating that the advisor has reviewed your schedule. You may then log in to Self-Service to check the status of each course.
Schedule changes may be made in Self-Service until the day before classes begin.
If two class meeting times overlap and the instructors have approved the conflict, register for one of the courses and ask the instructor for the other course to email the Registrar’s Office stating that you have obtained permission to enroll despite the conflict.
Seat limits for courses requiring instructor approval are set at zero. Students may not register for these classes online. Email the instructor requesting permission to enroll in the class. If your request is granted, the instructor will email the Registrar’s Office, and you will be added to the class.
To register for a closed section (a class that has reached its enrollment limit), email the instructor requesting permission to enroll. Students enrolling in BIBL 124, COMP 111/211, or HUMN 102/202 should not ask to add a closed section unless extenuating circumstances make a schedule change unavoidable. In the rare instances when a change is necessary, contact Dr. Phil Kenneson with BIBL 124 requests, Dr. Heather Hoover with COMP 111/211 requests, or Dr. Lee Blackburn with humanities requests. Do not contact the instructors for the Bible survey, composition, or humanities sections.
