Overview

Registration is a two-step procedure. Students first engage in schedule planning. During this phase students look at Class Schedule Search, consult with their advisor and construct a preferred schedule for the coming semester and a list of second-choice courses. Once the schedule is planned and approved by the advisor, students are ready for the second step in the procedure: WebRegistration. Listed in Banner on the student’s registration information is a Web Reg Pin number. Once the student and advisor have determined an appropriate schedule, the advisor gives the student the Web Reg Pin number, and the student may then go on-line, at their appointed time or after, to register for courses.

For continuing students Initial Registration is held about a month before the end of the previous semester (in April for fall semester or in late October/early November for spring semester). The two weeks preceding online appointments is designated as the period during which students are to meet with the advisor for schedule planning. Most advisors find that some students appear a week or more earlier than this, however, and that others wait until registration has begun. Many advisors schedule extra office hours during the schedule planning period. Some advisors send reminders to their advisees as schedule planning approaches.

Registration information for each advisee is available online to the advisor before these designated weeks. Students with financial holds should be sent to Student Account Services, where often the conversation itself is enough to remove the hold.

The information online also includes the student’s appointment time for WebReg registration.  A seniority system determines the order of appointments with a few exceptions: students with certain learning disabilities, by invitation from the PASS Office, are allowed to register early through the PASS Office; students participating in a varsity sport in that semester; students on the President’s and Dean’s Lists and Plymouth Scholars register before others. Because classes do fill during initial registration, students are well advised to register during their appointed time.  However, students are not excused from classes to register.

Entering students go through a process analogous to Initial Registration at New Student Orientation, either in June or the day preceding the new semester. They meet with representatives of their major department (or if undeclared, with the University Studies Department and volunteer faculty advisors) for schedule planning and registration.
