Some Common Registration Difficulties

Several common themes emerge during the weeks of the registration cycle and you can keep them in mind if you encounter registration difficulties.
If you are on Academic Restriction or Probation, you need to have an advisor lift your hold so that you can register through your WebAdvisor account.

If you have developmental Reading, English, or Math courses that you still need to complete, an advisor will need to lift your hold so that you can register through your WebAdvisor account.

Students wanting to register for CSC 106 need to speak with an advisor to discuss both their math backgrounds and their proficiency with Microsoft Office so that they manually register for the course.

If you need to repeat a course for which you are currently registered, an advisor must sign your Registration Form. The computer system, in its logic, interprets this as a repeated course and will block the registration through WebAdvisor.

If you are taking a course for more than a third time, an advisor will need to sign your registration form.

If you have any questions come visit the Academic Advising Center during its regular business hours or use your CampusCruiser account to email the Center at Please remember that the Academic Advising Center has now moved to the second floor of West Hall.
