Using the Registration Page

Registration PageThe Registration page is split into one vertical frame on the left of your computer screen and three horizontal frames on the right. The vertical frame on the left is where you add and drop classes. The three horizontal frames on the right display messages, your schedule, and your tuition and fee information.

Adding and Dropping Classes

Drop a Class

  1. In the item number fields in the vertical frame of the Registration page, enter the item number of the classes you want to add or drop, for example 4592, 8854, or 2301. If you do not have the item numbers, you can find them in the current class schedule. (All drops after the class has begun must be processed at the registration office in Building I.)
  2. Click on "Submit Add/Drop."

If you enter an item number for which you are already registered, the process will treat the request as a "drop." If you enter an item number for which you are not registered, the process will treat the request as an "add."

Since the Registration page is made up of four frames, it is difficult to print a copy of your schedule, charges, and payments as they appear on this page. To print a copy of your schedule, changes, and payments:

  1. Click on the "View My Schedule" link at the very bottom of the Registration page. This link will bring your schedule up without frames.
  2. Once there, you can print a copy of your schedule, charges, and payments by clicking on the schedule frame and using your browser's Print function (as you normally would).

Error and Informational Messages

Error Messages As you submit item numbers for classes that you want to add or drop, you may see error or informational messages appear on the top horizontal frame of the Registration page. These messages provide valuable information about the classes that you are attempting to add or drop.

  • Error messages inform you when a problem has occurred that will block registration for the specific class. Examples:

    This class is cancelled.
    Invalid item number.

  • Informational messages provide additional information about the class you are adding or dropping, but do not block registration. Example:

    Warning: dropping classes may affect your financial aid.

If you have questions about an error or informational message that you receive, please call the appropriate office (i.e. if the message refers to your Financial Aid status, contact the Financial Aid office). If the message does not refer to any office, contact Admissions/Registration at (425) 235-2352.

Viewing Your Schedule, Charges, and Payments

Information listed for each class includes: item number, course identifier, credits, audit class identifier, class days and times, building and room number, class fees, and instructor's name.

Web registration is "real time" or immediate. You should see an immediate change to your schedule whenever you add or drop a class.

Charges, payments, financial aid, and refunds for tuition and fees are listed on the bottom horizontal frame of the Registration page. Only tuition and class fees are included in the listing of charges and payments.
