Access WebAdvisor and Log In (need more information)
You can now use the various options under the 'Registration Menu' to search and register for classes.
Search for Sections
To search for sections, click on 'Search for Sections'. Search for Sections will enable you to view available Course Sections. You will be able to limit your search by term, subject, course level, course number, section, meeting days and times, course title, locations/sections (Myrtle Beach classes, Fall II classes, etc.), academic level or instructor's last name.
First specify the term or start and end dates. Term Dates or start and end dates MUST always be specified.
Next specify the subject, course level, etc. At least two fields must be specified.
Click on the Submit button and all available Course Sections matching the criteria you selected will be displayed.
You can NOT register for Course Sections on this menu. To register for Course Sections, you must click on Register for Sections.
Register for Sections
To register for Course Sections, click on Register for Sections.
A. Adding Course Sections to the Preferred Sections List. You can add Course Sections to your Preferred Sections List via 'Search and Register' or 'Express Registration'
If you do NOT know the exact subject, course number, and section of the course sections for which you plan to register, you can then click on 'Search and Register for Sections'. You will be able to limit your search by term, subject, course level, meeting days and times, locations/sections (Myrtle Beach classes, Fall II, etc), academic level, or instructor's last name. Click on the Submit button. Once the course sections display that meet your criteria, you can select the course sections for which you would like to register by checking the boxes next to them. Click Submit at the bottom of the screen to add your selections to your Preferred Sections List.
If you know the exact subject, course number and section number for the Course Sections for which you wish to register, you can then select 'Express Registration'. You can register for a course section by simply entering the course subject, course number and section (i.e. MATH 100 01) and the appropriate term that you are registering for (i.e. Fall 2006). Once you have entered all the Course Sections you plan to take, you can click on the Submit button at the bottom of the screen. This would add the entered Course Sections to your Preferred Sections List.
B. Registering for Course Sections in your Preferred Sections List
After selecting Course Sections using ‘Search and Register’ or ‘Express Registration’ you should complete the process by registering for the Course Sections added to your Preferred Sections List.
You could choose to:
Register for all Course Sections in this list by using the ‘Action for ALL Preferred Sections’ option.
If you use the ‘Action for ALL Pref. Sections’ you can choose to select an option for the ‘If one of my choices is not available’ drop down near the end of the page. The two choices here are ‘Allow me to adjust all’ or ‘Complete only available’.
‘Allow me to adjust all’ - Choosing this will complete the registration process only if all registration attempts pass successfully. If one registration fails, all fail. Example: You choose to register for two Course Sections at once. You have not met the pre-requisites for the first Course Section. Then both registrations fail; i.e. you are not registered for the second Course Section either. In such a scenario you should try to register for the second Course Section again.
‘Complete only available’ - Choosing this option will complete the registration process for all successful Course Sections and will give error messages for the rest. Example: You choose to register for two Course Sections at once. You have not met the pre-requisites for the first Course Section. Now, you will get registered for the second Course Section but will get an error message indicating that registration in the first Course Section was unsuccessful.
Register for one Course Section at a time by choosing an 'Action' from the drop down next to each Course Section.
After a successful registration attempt, a new screen will show the result(s) of your registration attempt. All of the processed requests and the Course Sections that you are currently registered for will be displayed. Please note that this will include courses from the current semester and will NOT be limited just to the Course Sections for which you are currently registering.
If you register via WebAdvisor, you will NOT receive a printed course confirmation from the Office of the Registrar. You can obtain a confirmation by returning to WebAdvisor’s Main Menu and selecting My Class Schedule. You can use your browser’s print function to print a confirmation of your course schedule by term.
If you would like to register for a Course Section on an Audit or Pass/Fail basis, you will need to contact your academic department to obtain authorization. You must register within the academic department, not via WebAdvisor for Audit and/or Pass/Fail Course Sections.
Special Permissions - Academic Overload and Instructor’s Consent must be granted electronically by your academic department prior to registering online.
To drop Course Sections, click on Drop Sections. Then, select the Course Section(s) you wish to drop by checking the box next to it. (Please note that you can also add a Course Section(s) at the same time as dropping another. The Course Section(s) that you need to add should be in your Preferred Sections List.) Then click the Submit button. A new screen will show you the result of your drop(s) and add(s).
Special Note: In order to process a total University Withdrawal, you will need to go to the University College located in the Kearns Building, room 213, for the proper form.

When you click on this option you may be re-directed to other screens that need to be updated before you can access this information. Typically, the intermittent screens require you to update demographic information such as your local address.
