Step 1 - Get Advised

Academic advising is recommended for all students and is required for freshman and transfer students with less than 45 hours. If advising is required, a hold will prevent registration until advising is complete.

Step 3 - Check for Holds

A student's account status can prevent registration, so it is important to clear all holds prior to registering for classes. Students can view holds on their account through myGateway. Holds must be cleared through the department that imposed them.
