Returning Students

Beginning on March 20th, online class registration through the Empower program will be taking place for the fall semester. This page contains a schedule of when you will be eligible to register and a check list that students should complete the following steps.

To do before registering

  • Speak with your advisor, dean, or Erin Barnett, Director of Academic Success and Student Life ( or 906-487-7324) to complete a registration form that will need to be submitted to the Registrar’s office.
  • Verify that you do not have any holds on your account. If you have a hold from any department, including financial aid, student accounts, admissions or security, you will NOT be permitted to register for classes.
