Follow the steps below to complete your course registrations.

1. Know when your enrollment time begins

Students are automatically assigned an “Enrollment Appointment” on SPIRE.  This is the earliest day and time students are able to enroll for that semester.  In the SPIRE Menu, go to Enrollment > Enrollment Appointment. The Enrollment Dates page for the current term will open.

2. Make sure all holds are cleared

If you have a hold on your record/account in SPIRE, this could prevent registration.  To view a hold, log into SPIRE, look on the right side of the screen on your Student Services Center page under "Holds".

3. Review your remaining requirements in your Academic Requirements Report (ARR)

Click the down arrow on the “other academic...” drop-down list to the left of your Class Schedule on the Student Center in SPIRE. Click on ARR NoShopping Cart, then hit the arrows.

4. Build a shopping cart with back up options

Once you know which courses you need, search for them in SPIRE to add to your Enrollment Shopping Cart.  It is a good idea to add several back up courses to your shopping cart in case your first-choice options become full.

5. Enroll on time!

Once your “Enrollment Appointment” time begins, log into SPIRE and click back into your shopping cart. Select the open courses you want to enroll in from your list and hit enroll! You can continue to make changes to your schedule until the add/drop period ends.
