Registration for 2019 Spring Courses!

In order to register for spring courses, students must consult with their academic advisor and obtain clearance to register between Monday, October 22nd and Friday, October 26th.

As preparation for this meeting, you should review your progress toward meeting course requirements and create a list of possible courses for the upcoming semester. To do this, use the Academic Evaluation feature in WebAdvisor (Academic Planning > Academic Evaluation) and/or the graduation requirement form for your major.

The 2019 spring schedule of classes will be available via WebAdvisor on Monday, October 15th.

You should also check your WebAdvisor account to learn when you may begin registering for your classes. After logging in, click on “Registration Status and Time.” For most students, this screen will indicate that they may register at some time between October 29thand November 5th. However, please note that some students may see a “hold,” which restricts them from registering. If you are one of these students, you must clear up the related matter before you may register.

If you have any questions, please contact your academic advisor.

Salesian Quote of the Day

“What we would like to do is change the world–make it a little simpler for people to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves as God intended them to do. And, by fighting for better conditions, by crying out unceasingly for the rights of the workers, the poor, of the destitute–the rights of the worthy and the unworthy poor, in other words–we can, to a certain extent, change the world.” Dorothy Day
