Register for Credit Classes

Register for classes by selecting the "get started online" button below and logging into the student portal. ​​

​Students must register at least one week before the start of the term and are not able to register up until the day classes start for all credit classes. This change is meant to allow students sufficient time to prepare for classes, including meeting with an advisor and ordering books, and to ensure students don't miss any class sessions due to late registration.​


1. Enter your Enrollment Preferences

This lets us know where and when you wish to take classes and helps us find the classes you want and need. ONLY YOU CAN COMPLETE THIS PROCESS. NO ONE CAN DO IT FOR YOU.                                   

How to do it: Login to, select My Academic Plan, then click Enrollment Preferences. If you wish to change your academic plan, you must contact your academic advisor. Only advisors can change an academic plan or focus area for a student                                    

2. Enter courses for the next term into your Education Planner

Work with your advisor to create an education plan, your term-by-term roadmap to earning a degree or certificate.                                   

How to do it: In, select My Academic Plan, then My Academic Plan, then Educational Planner. You can add courses to your planner in two ways: Plan by My Requirements (recommended) or Browse Course Catalog. Once the courses you want are in your planner, move your courses into the desired term(s). If you have not completed both steps (Enrollment Preferences and adding courses to your Planner and moving them into terms), we will be unable to create a class schedule for you and automatically load your shopping cart.                                  

3. Confirm your choices and complete registration preparation

How to do it: In, select My Academic Plan, then Preregistration. In addition to confirming your enrollment preferences and courses for upcoming terms, you’ll have the opportunity to review your personal information and confirm your academic plan.

Ensure your class schedule is what you want. You add or delete classes from your Shopping Cart, as desired.
