This page contains information that can help students navigate the registration process and online systems used to register. There are also, suggestions of "how to" build a course schedule and other in-person resources to help you. It is always advisable that students contact their Dean's Office if they are having difficulty getting the classes they need to meet degree requirements.
How to Build a Course Schedule and Choose Alternate Sections or Courses
Please note: It is to your advantage to complete a full registration for the coming semester at the time of your appointment. It is better to be registered in a course than to not be registered.
Make a note of the available courses and sections (the Schedule of Classes in PROWL will show you available classes only) and use these courses to begin building your schedule.
Please remember that when choosing courses, you should review all course sections. For a closed section or course, there are two options:
Option 1: Select alternate sections or alternate course
- If there are multiple sections of a course, remeber to choose those sections as well. Select several alternate courses sections that will fit around your "must have" classes to use in the event that your chosen course section closes before you register.
- If a "must have" course is not offered in the term, contact the Dean's Office that offers the course to see when it will be offered in the future.
Option 2: Waitlist
- Most courses will have a Waitlist function; if the course section you selected is closed, you may select the Waitlist option.
- If you receive a Waitlist email stating the course/section you wished has opened up, you have 24 hours to respond before the option passes on to the next person on the Waitlist.
