If you are well-prepared, your registration will go smoothly. You have the option of using either Schedule Builder or the Class Search Tool to create your schedule.

Preparing to Register

Using Schedule Builder, you can: 

  • Search for classes, and view class details and critical class messages.
  • Check for registration holds and errors.
  • Create and save multiple schedules with varying classes and sections for the same quarter.
  • View your schedule in both list and calendar formats.
  • Register for a full schedule (all classes) or one class at a time.
  • Swap (add & drop) classes and sections in one action.

Using the Class Search Tool:

  • Print the Class Planner and Registration Worksheet to record all of the information you will need during registration. You may not have time to look for this information during your appointment.
  • Choose the classes you wish to take. There may be several offerings (sections) of the course, or there may be only one section. Each section has its own CRN.
  • Select alternative choices and their CRNs, and write them on your worksheet in case your first choices are unavailable. Be sure to select a CRN for each part of a multiple-part course that does not use the combined schedule.
  • Class selections saved in the Class Search Tool do NOT download into Schedule Builder. 

If you have selected a variable-unit course or course requiring the consent of the instructor for enrollment, you will see the @ symbol instead of the CRN in Schedule Builder and the Class Search Tool. Obtain the CRN from the department offering the course, and then enroll using Schedule Builder.

Students without existing enrollment by the 10th day of instruction will not be able to register for courses; see Late Schedule Adjustments.
