In light of Campus closure and as a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19, many employees in the NHS Advising Office are working remotely in an effort to best support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase. Staff will work diligently to respond as quickly to all inquiries. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Updates will be published to our COVID-19 information page as the situation develops.

Course Advising and Registration

The following are steps for course advising and registration for freshman and sophomore students. Juniors and seniors should contact their faculty advisor for advising. Your assigned advisor can be found in Degree Works. If you are a double major or have a minor you should meet with all advisors for those areas to make sure you are on track with your majors and minors.

Schedule an advising appointment with your Academic Advisor:

  • You will receive an email from your Advisor 5-6 weeks before registration begins to schedule an appointment. Make sure to check your Bear Mail daily during the semester to watch for this email. If you do not receive an email contact your Advisor to schedule an appointment.
    • Registration timelines:
      • Fall advising appointments (for spring registration) begin in early October
      • Spring advising appointments (for summer and fall registration) begin in late February.

 Meet with your designated Academic Advisor:

  • Prior to your meeting, look over Degree Works and the Schedule of Classes in URSA to plan out your schedule. You can use this Scheduler Builder to plan out classes.
  • Check the Registrar’s website for your Registration Date. Registering for your next semester is based on how many credits you have EARNED/COMPLETED. Find this number by subtracting your current semester credits from your total applied credits listed on Degree Works.
  • Check URSA for any holds you have and discuss them with your Advisor. Common holds include billing, immunization, student athlete, and academic probation. You will need to take care of any holds prior to registering for courses (click for more info on holds). 
  • Discuss course prerequisites with your Advisor.
  • During your appointment, your Advisor will verify all information and provide you a PIN for registration. You WILL NOT be able to register for classes without a PIN.

 Register for courses:

  • It is important that you register on your assigned date to ensure you get into the courses needed to keep you moving toward graduation.
  • Need help registering? Here is a video that walks you through the process - watch video.

 Changes to your schedule after registration:

  • Email your Advisor prior to making any changes to your schedule to make sure the changes won’t negatively impact your progression.
