4-Step Registration Process

 

numeral 1

Make a DegreeWorks Plan

The first step in the Registration Process is creating a Plan in DegreeWorks.

The Plans tab allows students to plot their courses through graduation. Students can create a Plan from scratch, or add courses to a pre-defined template. Some departments require that students complete a plan prior to attending their advising session. 

Students should review their DegreeWorks worksheet and create their next semester plan before meeting with their advisor.

See our DegreeWorks website for more information on Plans.

numeral 2

Meet with Your Advisor

The next step is to visit with your advisor to review your DegreeWorks Plan. If your advisor agrees, he or she will lock and activate your Plan. 

Completing this step is required in order for Continuing students to TRIPLE the ChampChange points they earn when registering for classes on the first day they're eligible during our bi-annual Priority Registration cycle. 

Not sure who your advisor is? Follow the steps on our Advising Information website to find out.
