All new Titans are strongly encouraged to sign-up for a virtual advising & registration session before registering for classes. Your academic advisement is delivered during these sessions. If you choose to register for your courses before your advising session date, please bring your selected list of courses to your advising session so that an advisor can review it for you. If you do not have any holds on your Student Center, you may enroll in courses when your registration window opens. Incoming Spring 2022 Transfer student registration opens November 19. Check your Student Center for your registration date.
