Don’t miss an event! Follow us on:

Do I have to see an advisor before I register?

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).

When do I register for next semester?

Registration dates and times are assigned to students at various times during the registration period. You will be emailed your appointment scheduling link to select the day and time that is convenient for you. Registration continues until the last day to add a course of each semester, but there may be late registration fees assessed after the start of classes. Please refer to the university academic calendar to see these dates.

How do I register for classes?

Use the appointment scheduling link emailed to you from Student Success Advisors or login to EAB by using your JSU NetID and password click “Schedule an Appointment”. 

What classes should I take next semester?

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.

What is a Registration Hold and how do I get it removed?

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.

What is a prerequisite?

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.

How can I tell if the courses I want to take will count toward my graduation requirements?

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.

Can my advisor add me to a class that is full?

No, departments/instructors make these decisions, so you will need to contact the department offering the course and/or the instructor teaching the course.

When Does Registration Open?

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.
