The first step to begin your journey is to understand the necessary information to be able to register for your first courses. All of the information needed to successfully register is at your fingertips. However, if you have detailed questions and would prefer to meet with an advisor to register, please contact your admissions representation to set up that meeting.
Step 1: Review your Advising Worksheet
Access and print your advising worksheet/course needs. To access your advising worksheet, follow the steps outlined on this document.
Step 2: Understand your Program Expectations and Requirements
This information is best learned by speaking with the advisor in your program, whether that’s a faculty member or a professional advisor. His/her contact information can be found on your advising worksheet in the upper right corner.
Step 3: Register for Classes
The required courses for your program are listed on your advising worksheet. In general, this worksheet lists the “what,” but you will speak to your advisor about the “when.” He or she will be able to tell you which classes to register for in the upcoming term.
BE AWARE - Courses are available at multiple locations (including online and on-ground courses). Please pay attention to the location of the courses you are choosing.
Review a step by step guide for adding/dropping classes
Please note that in order to DROP a course, you must do so prior to the first class meeting. Dropped courses do not appear on the student record. After a course has begun, you may WITHDRAW from it, but you must contact your academic advisor for the appropriate withdrawal form. A withdrawal does appear on the student record with a grade of "W." Please refer to the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs for more information on these policies.
Step 4: Purchase Textbooks and Prepare for Classes
To be prepared for your first course, you should find and purchase your textbook prior to the beginning of class.
Step 5: Review information about Stritch Technology
Students who are successful utilize the full range of technological resources made available to students. You must set-up and access your Stritch email, My.Stritch and Canvas. All of these resources are referenced at the Technology Help Desk, Getting Started.
