Procedures

Registration

To register for classes during the registration period, a student must:

  1. Check registration date. After admission, a student should check for their assigned registration date. This is the date and time a student can begin registering for the upcoming semester. While a student can register anytime from the beginning of their assigned registration date through the end of the registration period, ASU strongly encourages every student to register as soon as possible. The registration date for newly admitted freshmen is the same date that they attend their orientation program. Students can sign in to My ASU to view the date and time of their assigned registration date. Registration dates are not required for summer sessions. Consult the Academic Calendar for more information on important dates and deadlines.
  2. Clear any registration holds. Sign into My ASU to determine if you have any holds that will prevent you from registering for classes. Examples of registration holds include missing transcripts, unpaid fees, academic advising requirements and immunizations requirements. Clearing registration holds as quickly as possible avoids delays in registration which can impact your chances of getting the classes and schedule that are best for you.
  3. Register for classes. Once a student has cleared any registration holds and their registration date has arrived, they are ready to register for classes. Students may register for classes online or in person. Students can search for available classes online.
