How do I register for classes for Fall?
Contact Dr. Goldman or Dr. Martin to discuss the development of an academic plan. This discussion will include your academic and career goals, the requirements of the Program, the development of an academic plan which includes a projected sequence of courses leading to graduation, and a selection of courses for the Fall semester.
After you develop your academic plan with consultation from your academic advisor, you will be given an Alternate Personal Identification Number (alternate PIN) by your academic advisor. This PIN allows the student to use our online system (BANNER) to register for classes. You may contact Dr. Goldman or Dr. Martin regarding more specific questions pertaining to registration.
