Frequently Asked Questions



My advisor has approved my subject selections – am I all set?
No.  The student needs to complete the registration submission process.  When an advisor approves subject selections, an email will be sent to the students with additional instructions on how to submit the registration.

Why do I have to provide address and emergency contact information?
Many offices on campus rely on accurate address and emergency contact information, especially during times of emergency.  Requiring students to review and/or edit this data during the registration process provides the opportunity to keep this information updated.

Why do I have to agree to the terms of registration?
Part of the registration process includes agreeing to the financial obligations that are associated with enrolling.  The statement that is included in the online registration application also appears on the current paper registration form.  So this part of the registration process has not changed, though the act of agree to the terms is more prominent.
