    • Registration and Class Schedules Menu
    • Class Registration & Planning
    • Prepare for Registration
    • Use the drop down box to select Winter 2023 and click “continue.” This should bring up your registration status screen for the term and show you if you have any holds.

Variable Credits: 

These courses will always default to 1 credit after registration.

After selecting the desired amount click “submit” and your new registration will be saved.
