Advising Information for Spring and Summer Registration

Spring and Summer Class Schedule

The spring and summer class schedule are accessible here.  A concise version of it can be found in the Academic Tools portlet on the Teaching page of the MyRU portal.  Please note that room assignments, if made already, are subject to change.   

Registration PINs

Registration PINs have been assigned to all degree-seeking undergraduate students who are currently enrolled this term.  Graduate students do not need PINs to register.  PINs can be accessed in any one of three ways: 1) in your Advisee Listing found in the Academic Tools portlet on the Teaching page of the MyRU portal; 2) from your department’s administrative assistant or college advising center; or 3) by contacting the Registrar’s Office at 540-831-5271.  Please note that you must select Spring 2018 to view your advisees’ PINs.

Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs

Access Undergraduate Catalogs here and Graduate Catalogs here.  Catalogs prior to the 2012-2013 academic year can be found here.  If you need to confirm a student’s catalog year, you can access it in their Degree Works degree audit or by contacting the Registrar’s Office at 540-831-5271.

Degree Works Degree Audit

The faculty and advisor version of Degree Works can be found in the Academic Tools portlet on the Teaching page of the MyRU portal.  If you notice errors in the degree audits, please report those to me at, and we will promptly correct them.

Course Overrides

Only department chairs and school directors in individual departments and schools have the authority to override a prerequisite requirement, a course capacity limit, or a time conflict with another course.  That override is given electronically through our student information system.  Once that override has been placed on a student’s record, the student must register for the course online in the same way that the student would register for any other course.
