News and Updates

Summer and Autumn Registration Information

Summer Quarter 2022 registration for all graduate and doctoral students begins on Monday, May 2

Autumn Quarter 2022 registration for current graduate and doctoral students begins on Monday, May 16. New students admitted for Autumn 2022 may begin registering on May 31. 

As always, before students are able to register all holds must be resolved. Holds may be added at any time, including the day you are scheduled to register.  

To check holds:

    • Student Menu
    • Registration and Class Schedules Menu
    • Class Registration & Planning
    • Prepare for Registration
    • Use the drop down box to select Spring 2022 and click “continue.” This should bring up your registration status screen for the term and show you if you have any holds.

To register:

    • Student Menu
    • Registration and Class Schedules Menu
    • Class Registration and Planning
    • Register for Classes
    • Use the drop down box and select: Spring 2022 and click “continue”

To change credits for a course that has variable credits: These courses will always default to 1 credit after registration.

To change this: After you have registered, when you are in the “register for classes” menu option, click on the fourth tab on the upper left side, labeled “schedule and options”. This allows you to view your schedule and anything that is underlined is a variable credit course and the credit amount is able to be changed. Click on the number of credits next to this course and it will give you the option to change the variable credit amount. After selecting the desired amount click “submit” and your new registration will be saved.

A few more important notes about Autumn 2022 registration: 

  • Online Registration will remain open until September 12 at 11:59pm. 
  • Any registration attempted after registration deadlines will require a Registration Petition submitted to Student Academic Services.
  • Dissertation & Practicum credits have an extended online registration deadline of April 8 at 11:59 pm.
  • Independent Studies have an extended registration deadline of September 23 at 4:30pm but require additional paperwork so cannot be registered via Banner. The Independent Study Agreement must be received in Student Academic Services before this deadline to avoid a petition process.
  • Registration deadlines and tuition refund deadlines can be found on the academic calendar.

A full listing of all Summer 2022 and Autumn 2022 courses is available online through our Graduate Time Schedule.  Please be sure to check out any restrictions or required pre-requisites to make sure you are eligible for the courses you want to register for.  All restrictions, special approval requirements, and pre-requisites are listed by each class under “Course Details” in the time schedule.  Please check with your program’s graduate coordinator (either Amelia Morgan or Kristi Kanehen) if a hold of this type needs to be removed.

Graduating Students: Review Your Degree Check! (for 2021-2022)

Now is the time to have a look at your degree check in Banner to make sure you are on track to graduate in the term you selected. Please note that your degree audit is based off of the Catalog requirements for the program and term you were admitted.  This may mean that there are some substitutions or equivalencies that need to be noted in order to complete your record. 

Please have a look at your degree check, and let Kristi Kanehen know of anything that looks amiss. She will work with each of you to ensure that your degree check accurately reflects your progress and that you are on track to earn your degree!

To access degree check, please follow these directions.

  1. Log into Banner
  2. Select the Student Menu
  3. Select the Academic Records Menu
  4. Select “GR and DR Degree Status Check”
  5. Click the blue “admitted term” hyperlink to the right of your program of study. For example:
  6. Note: If the hyperlink does not populate your program, follow the prompts in the dropdown menus to find the degree check appropriate to your program. 
  7. Remember to select your term of admission, not the current term.


To read degree check

Degree check lists all courses required during the Catalog year of your admission. Courses in green are complete. Courses in red are not complete. Please also pay attention to the total number of outstanding credits at the bottom of your degree check, as well as substitutions and general comments that Megan Hamshar or Kristi Kanehen may have already entered on your degree check.

If something seems inaccurate or incomplete, please email Kristi Kanehen by February 28 outlining the issue, and she will review and update degree check as appropriate.
