Registering can be a little intimidating. Let's take it step-by-step.

Step 1: Make a Plan

All students must register for four academic courses. You'll add physical education, applied music and military science courses outside of WebTree.

Before visiting the WebTree site, choose the four courses that would be your ideal schedule. For suggestions, look at information about course options.

You probably won't get all four of your first picks. Don't panic! Be flexible (there will be other semesters). Choose several alternates for each course, and be aware of time conflicts. 

"PRM" in the Notes column of the class schedule indicates students need permission of the instructor. You may email the instructor to request permission, and if granted, indicate as such when prompted in WebTree. Otherwise, you may seek permission from the instructor during the Add/Drop period during the first week of classes. Also look at the Notes column for the numbers 1, 2, 3, and/or 4. These numbers indicate courses restricted to first-years, sophomores, juniors and seniors. If you include one of these courses, and you are not in one of those classes, WebTree will ignore it.

"PRQ" in the Notes column indicates the course has a prerequisite. You will need to read the course description to determine if you have taken the prerequisite.

There isn't a set schedule for students interested in a particular major. The first two years emphasize graduation requirements. A variety of course selections are appropriate and desirable.

Summer academic advisers will be available in June for email or phone questions if you need more help.

Step 2: Use WebTree to Submit Your Class Preferences

New students can submit their course preferences on the WebTree site. WebTree is where you'll fill in the courses and alternates you've decided on.

Note: Don't worry about physical education, applied music, and military science courses now. Do not use WebTree to register for them. Instead refer to their program webpages for registration info specific to these programs.

Step 3: Meet With Your Holistic Adviser

Your orientation materials will contain the name of your adviser along with your meeting time.

Step 4: Make Changes to Your Schedule (if needed)

You'll be able to make changes to your course schedule at orientation using Banner Self-Service online.

Step 5: Additional Changes (Add/Drop)

During your first week of class, you are allowed to add or drop classes using Banner Self-Service, unless the class requires instructor permission or you need an exception. To add a class with exceptions or permission, you'll need to use our online Add/Drop form. It is only available during the Add/Drop period. The form is not necessary to drop a class, and that can be done through Banner Self-Service.

During your second week of class, you are allowed to add or drop a class, but it must be done using the online Add/Drop form. You can not use Banner Self-Service to add or drop classes after the first week. There is also an Add/Drop fee for changes in the second week of classes.
