Registering for Classes

Registration for classes is done via BannerWeb, the University’s online student information system. Registration for classes begins approximately six weeks before classes start; review the appropriate Academic Calendar for details.

Before logging in to BannerWeb, we recommend that new SPCS students view the online Schedule of Classes to plan their schedules.

The BannerWeb schedule is up to the minute. Tutorial videos for using BannerWeb are also available online. To see course offerings and openings, use the “Look Up Classes to Add” menu.

Look Up Classes to Add

If you do not know the CRN (course reference number) of the class(es) for which you wish to register:

  1. Click on the Registration menu on the Student Services page. At the top of the menu, you may choose to view a brief instructional video.
  2. From the Registration menu, click on Look Up Classes to Add.
  3. Select the upcoming term for which you plan to register.
  4. On the Look Up Classes to Add screen, you may select the parameters of your class search. While you can select many parameters to search for classes, it is best to be as general as possible. You must always select a subject for your search but may leave the other menus blank. Please note that the subject selection box includes subjects available through the School of Arts and Sciences, the Robins School of Business, the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, and the School of Continuing Studies (SCS). Only SCS courses are available for your registration.
  5. Once you have selected your search parameters, click on Class Search.
  6. A list of all classes meeting your search parameters will be returned. From this list you can see if a class has seats available (under the Rem column), what time the class meets (under Days and Time), and if the class meets a field of study requirement (under Attr). By clicking on the CRN of a specific course, you can view more information, including current prerequisites for the course.
  7. To register for a course, select the box in the Select column. If there is not an empty box (for example, if there is a "C" or "SR"), that course is not available for registration at this time. After selecting a course, click on Register at the bottom of the page. To return to the class search page without registering, click Class Search at the bottom of the page.
  8. Confirm your registration in the desired class. Any registration errors will be noted on the confirmation page. If there was a registration error, you will not be registered for the class.

If you already know the CRN (Course Reference Number) of the class(es) for which you wish to register:

  2. Click on Add/Drop Classes.
  3. Enter the CRN for the class(es) for which you wish to register.
  4. Enter the CRN for the class(es) for which you wish to register.
  5. Confirm registration in the desired class(es). Any registration errors will be noted on the confirmation page. If there was a registration error, you will not be registered for the class.
  6. Exit BannerWeb by clicking on EXIT at the top right of the page. For maximum security, always close your browser.
