Registration and Planning

The Registration and Planning interface will provide improved registration, class schedule, and course catalog tools for students, advisors, and faculty. Click a link below to learn more:

Registration Menu (Will Vary based on Role)

Verify Registration Status (Students only)

This is the new version of the current Registration Status link (under Student Menu – Registration in Tigerline), and includes details of your registration time, holds, academic standing, student status, classification, earned credit hours, registration permits granted, and a summary of your declared curriculum (major & degree). This is a good place to check for barriers which may prevent you from registering in a current or upcoming term.

xeprepare

The Student above has two barriers that would prevent registration.

  1. The student requires re-admission prior to registration.
  2. The student has a hold from the Business Office.

Plan Ahead

This is a tool for students and advisors to build a planned class schedule that can include courses and/or class sections, as well as notes about individual classes or about the overall plan. Registration plans are typically built by students and/or their advisors before registration opens for a new term.  Note: We are in the process of implementing DegreeWorks and it should become the preferred tool for schedule planning.

More information on the Plan Ahead feature will added as DegreeWorks is implemented.

View Previous Registrations (Students only)

Students can use this link to view their class schedule in various formats. The default page displays the class schedule for a term in both simple list and calendar formats. The Schedule Details link (in the calendar format pane) displays more detailed information about each class, including start and end dates, meeting days/times, classroom, and instructor(s).

Click on a class title to access full class details, including the catalog course description, textbook information, enforced prerequisites and other registration restrictions, and special class fees.

Note that these views of a class schedule only reflect actively registered classes.

Register for Classes

The default view in Register for Classes looks like the screenshot below. The top pane allows you to search for classes, and the bottom panes show the student’s class schedule summary – in a calendar format on the left and as a list on the right. As students add classes from the top pane, they are first added to the schedule Summary below in a “Pending” status (similar to a shopping cart). Students can see how the class would fit with their current class schedule before actually attempting to register in the class. Students can also drop classes from here. Click a link below to learn more:

Add Classes

For details on how to use the top pane to find classes, see Browse for Classes. Students that already know the CRNs of the classes they need can click the Enter CRNs tab in the top pane to enter CRNs, and then click the Add to Summary button. If registration plans have been created, students can click the Plans tab in the top pane to add sections to their Summary from a plan.

After adding a class to the Summary, it will first display in a Pending status reflected with a gray and white diagonal color. Classes in Pending status have not yet been checked to see if the student meets the enforced prerequisites or other class restrictions, and they are not part of the student’s class schedule.

If the student wants to register in a Pending class, they must click the Submit button in the lower right corner. Now the system will check to see if the student meets the class requirements. If the student does not want to register in a Pending class, they first need to change the Action to DROP and then click Submit. All Pending classes will automatically be dropped from the Summary when the student leaves or logs out of registration.

If the student clicks Submit and registration is successful, a green “Save Successful” message will display in the upper right corner with no error messages, and the status will change to “Registered” in the Summary with a green background color.

If the registration is not successful, error messages will display in the upper right corner indicating all reasons the student wasn’t able to register in a class, and the status will change to Errors Preventing Registration with a red/pink background color in the Summary. You may also temporarily see the green “Save Successful” message in the upper right corner above the error messages, but this only indicates that the registration error checking has successfully completed.

When errors exist, the Action automatically changes to “Remove” and clicking the Submit button will remove the class from the Summary. All classes with a status of Errors Preventing Registration will automatically be dropped from the Summary when the student leaves or logs out of registration.

Drop Classes

To drop a registered class, click in the Action column for the class you wish to drop and select the drop option (Drop/Delete) and click the Submit button in the lower left corner. Upon successfully dropping the class, a green “Save Successful” message will appear in the upper right corner, and the status will change to either “Deleted” (for Drop/Delete) in the Summary.

Conditional Add and Drop Classes

Students who wish to drop a class only on the condition that they are able to successfully register in another class should check the box next to Conditional Add and Drop (just next to the Submit button in the lower right of the class Summary box).

  1. The class in which the student desires to register must be in the Summary box (with a Pending status and Action of Web Registered).
  2. The class the student wants to drop conditionally should have an Action of Drop/Delete.
  3. The Conditional Add and Drop box must be checked.
  4. After all three of the above are in place, click the Submit button.
