Once you've found the course you want on the website, determine which class section you want. Each class section is displayed within its own box and shows its course registration number (CRN); the date(s), day(s) and time that the class will be running; the building in which the class will be held; the room in which class will be held (once assigned); the total hours of the class; and the total fee. The name of the teacher and additional notes may also be provided. Select those items that have a hyperlink for more details.

The availability of spaces for the class section is shown in the button in the bottom right corner.

  • "Register Now" means there is at least one spot available.
  • "Join Wait List" means there are no spots available but there is space on the wait list. If there are enough people on the wait list, the department may open a new class section.
  • "CRN is Closed" means the registration period for a class section has passed.
  • "CRN is Full" means the section is full and there is no wait list available.

The online registration process has five steps:

  • Step 1: Find the course(s) you want on the website. Choose the class section course reference number (CRN) with the schedule you want by selecting the "Register Now" button. (If the class section is full, a wait list may be available.) Confirm that the Course Selection(s) information is correct. If you do not wish to make any changes, confirm that you understand and accept the policy information and proceed to the next step.
  • Step 2: Provide the personal information requested (making sure to use your full legal name). It is important that you provide your home and business telephone numbers and an email address to facilitate our contact with you and to ensure you receive the email with your registration confirmation.
  • Step 3: Confirm your information, and submit your registration.
  • Step 4: Enter your payment information.
  • Step 5: View the confirmation screen, and print it for your records.
