Step 5: Register for Classes

Registration & Advising Days

Within one business day of completing our Online Orientation, you will receive a confirmation email with your Advisor's information. Please reach out to your faculty advisor to discuss courses and how to complete the registration process. While some faculty may choose to advise students prior to or outside of Advising Days, your advisor may suggest you attend an on-campus Advising Day to meet in person to discuss course options.

Academic Advising and How to Access your Degree Audit Report (DARS)

You can also learn more about what courses you need to take towards your program using the Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS). Your Degree Audit Report also shows your assigned advisor. 

To access your Degree Audit Report:

  • Log in to eServices with your StarID and Password. 
  • Click on "Academic Records" from the left-hand menu. 
  • Then click on "Degree Audit"

Visit our Academic Advising Page to learn more about the advising process and Degree Audits.

How to Register for Courses

Registration for classes opens on a specific day depending on your student status. Current, Returning, and New students all have unique registration windows. Find out when your registration window opens on our College Calendar.

Once you know which courses to register for and your registration window is open, register for courses by logging in to eServices. For detailed, step-by-step instructions, download this "How To" Guide (PDF). You may register for courses online through the first five days of the semester. Learn more about add/drop deadlines here.

PLEASE NOTE: Being accepted to the college does not guarantee you a place in the program of study you want. Seats are filled on a first come, first served basis. Register early - avoid disappointment!
