Registration Support Topics

TOP
Advising

Undergraduates: Every undergraduate student is required to meet with his or her advisor before registering for classes. All undergraduates will have an advising hold placed on their registration records. This hold will be released by the ESF Registrar's Office once you have obtained your advisor's signature on the registration form and submitted the completed and signed form to our office at 111 Bray Hall. Please note that any time you register or add/drop the original form must be returned to the Registrar's Office with the appropriate signature. Please note: your advisor cannot release an advising hold. You must come to the ESF Registrar’s Office before you can register.

Graduates: While it is not required, it is recommended that all graduate students meet with their major professors before registering for classes. Graduate students will not have an advising hold placed on their registration records and will not need to come to the Registrar's Office before registering.

TOP
Other Registration Holds

In addition to your advising hold, a hold may be placed on your registration if you need SU Health Services clearance, have an unpaid account balance at the ESF or SU Bursar’s Office, have overdue books at Moon Library or the SU Libraries, or are on ESF Administrative hold, and so forth. To view your registration holds go to the My Slice Portal and then choose the View Holds hyperlink from the Student Services Application.

Please go to the office listed to have the hold condition resolved. You will not be able to register until all holds are removed.

Courses Requiring Permission

Prior to registration, you will need to obtain permission to enroll in any restricted classes or classes requiring consent.

For ESF classes: permission is obtained from the faculty member who teaches the class. You will be given a permission number to enter during your registration session. Note: for courses numbered 495,498, and 499 the instructor only needs to sign your registration form on the instructor line. We will add that particular class for you.

For SU classes: permission is obtained from the department or college that offers the class. The department or college may enter the permission number directly on the system, or may give you a permission number. If you are given a number, you will be required to enter it during your registration session.

How to Enter a Permission Number:

  1. Follow Steps 1-6 for "Enroll in a Class"
  2. Notice that the Subject and Catalog Numbers are a hyperlink.
