Registration Personal Identification Numbers (PIN)

***Graduate Students do not need a registration PIN to register for classes.
Registration Start Times
Individual registration start times for all students are found by clicking Prepare for Registration on the Registration Landing page. Undergraduate student registration start times are prioritized according to student classification, e.g., seniors begin before juniors, juniors begin before sophomores, etc. Be sure to check your registration times immediately and make your advising appointments as soon as you can, if you haven’t already done so. For more on how undergraduate registration start times were assigned, click here.
***Graduate Students do not have priority registration. All graduate students can begin registering at 7:00 a.m. on October 31st.

Course Modality Attributes
Course modality attributes are used to indicate if a course is entirely online or delivered in a blended format. Here are the attributes and their definitions:
- Distance Learning; Asynchronous: entirely online, asynchronous modality.
- Distance Learning; Synchronous: entirely online, synchronous modality.
- Blended Learning; Split attendance Asynchronous: course will meet in groups; in addition to in-person class time, course material will be available in an asynchronous modality (i.e. Zoom).
- Blended Learning; Split attendance; Synchronous: course will meet in groups; in addition to in-person class time, course material will be available in a synchronous modality (i.e. Zoom).
- Blended Learning; Flipped Asynchronous: course will meet once a week with the full class enrollment; in addition to in-person class time, course material will be available in an asynchronous modality.
- Blended Learning; Flipped Synchronous: course will meet once a week with the full class enrollment; in addition to in-person class time, course material will be available in a synchronous modality (ie. Zoom).
If a course does not have one of these distance learning or blended attributes, it means that that course meets in-person each of the class periods.
How to Register for Classes

Course Override Process
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. Overrides are given electronically through our student information system. Once an override has been placed on your record, you must register for the course online in the same way that you register for any other course. You can see overrides in your Registration Status, which is found in the Registration Menu described above. Please note, if you obtain a course capacity override, the course will still appear as closed in the registration schedule. To add the course, simply enter the CRN directly in the registration screen.
