Student Registration

Students can find the university registration system, Student Planning, on their Eagle Service portal.

Registration for continuing students occurs in the fall for spring classes, and in the spring for summer and fall classes. Newly admitted students will be informed by the Admissions Office of their registration process and date.  Course schedules for each semester/term are published on the Office of the Registrar’s website prior to the stated registration date.  Student have the opportunity to add desired courses to their semester plan and meet with their academic advisor in advance of each registration start date. Students should seek the appropriate approval from their academic advisors when planning their programs to ensure a successful course plan. Students must initially register or be on a waitlist for the courses in which they wish to enroll prior to the beginning of each semester/term or they will incur a late registration fee.

Currently enrolled students should monitor and confirm all transactions made within Eagle Service. It is also advisable to keep copies of all tests and papers submitted in fulfillment of course work. The Office of the Registrar maintains registration related information on its website.
