Freshman- Juniors (0-89 Hours) must meet with a Student Success Advisor in the University Academic Advisement Center to register for your classes. Seniors will meet with an assigned Faculty/Department Advisor. During the short (30 minute) meeting, you and your advisor will discuss your selected major, minor, and/or pathway and courses you plan to take in the next semester(s).
Registration dates and times are assigned to students at various times during the registration period.

The classes you take should be based on your intended academic plan you determined with your advisor during your previous advising meetings or in the registration meeting. Degree requirement information for each major and a description of courses can be found in your JSU PAWS account. What classes you take depends on your intended major, your semester classification, and the courses you still need in order to graduate.
A registration hold prevents a student from registering for classes for the upcoming semester. Registration holds can be placed on a student for various reasons by Student Financial Services, the Student Health Center, Dean of Student Office, or other authorized individuals. A Registration Hold can only be removed by the party placing the hold. Your academic advisor can assist you in determining the source of the hold and directing you to the appropriate party to have it removed. To have your best selection of courses, you should check for holds in your Banner account well before your registration time begins.
Prerequisites are stipulations that must be met prior to taking a course. Prerequisites can include: successful completion of a designated course in a sequence, ACT/SAT score, and/or classification.
You may determine if a course you intend to take will count toward your degree by reviewing your degree requirements on your official Degree Map or by accessing your Degree Works audit.
No, departments/instructors make these decisions, so you will need to contact the department offering the course and/or the instructor teaching the course.
Priority is based on classification from hours earned. Students do not earn hours for the current semester until final grades are posted. To view your classification you may look at your unofficial transcript overall earned hours or the view student information tab in JSU PAWS.
