Registration Tips and Tricks

Permissions: Did you know you can have registration permissions applied before your registration time? If you’re going to need permission to register for a class you want, check the Online Permissions Instructions and get it in advance!

Holds: Make sure you check your holds in eCommon, and, if you have any, resolve them before your registration time. Many of the offices that remove holds (Health Services, Student Accounts, etc.) will not be open at 7:00 a.m. If you wait until your registration time to contact them, those offices will not be available to assist you.

Don’t let prerequisites and holds be an unpleasant surprises. Be proactive and use your resources to resolve them in advance!
