Returning Students

Beginning on March 21, online class registration through the Empower program will be taking place for the fall 2018 (and summer 2018) 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

  • Meet with your advisor in regards to planning out your schedule.  At this point, your advisor will give you a PIN that will allow you to sign up for classes when you are eligible.
  • 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.
    • You can log into the Empower program online and any holds from these departments will be listed on the Welcome screen. It is your responsibility to clear up the holds that have been placed on your account.
  • December 2018 grads must have their graduation applications submitted by March 30.
