FALL 2021 Online Early Registration Underway

We are excited for you to begin or continue your Tiger academic journey. Today, Fall 2021 Online Early Registration will begin for all students Monday, March 15, 2021; 100% online registration means there are no in-person meetings. To make things simpler, you won’t need to retrieve an alternate PIN from your advisor in order to select your classes; however, please schedule an appointment with your academic advisor in your department to ensure your course selections are the best fit for degree completion.

To ensure your success in the virtual classroom, here is a list of must-do’s to complete enrollment and online registration.

Online Registration Steps New & Returning Students

The updated process makes remote registration simple. Use BannerWeb and the Online Student Support Center to navigate getting registered. Follow these easy steps:

  1. Admissions Confirmation (New & Transfer Students Only) Complete any outstanding admissions requirements (documents, testing, etc.) or book an online appointment to find out any remaining to-dos for getting admitted.
  2. Submit Immunization Records (New & Transfer Students Only) New and transfer students, submit your immunization documents to the Foster-Johnson Health Center.
  3. Schedule an Academic Advising Appointment  

Please reserve a meeting with your academic department for academic advisement by booking an appointment via the online student support center.   During the meeting with your advisor your class schedule will be identified.  Your academic advisor will send you a follow-up email that will verify the schedule that was agreed upon.  A copy of this email will become a part of your file that is housed in the academic department.

  1. Create Your Class Schedule Login to BannerWeb to select your classes and submit your schedule. You will no longer need an ALTERNATE PIN to submit your schedule. Be sure to notify your advisor of any changes that you make that deviate from the agreed upon schedule.
  2. Confirm Financial Aid  If needed, book an online appointment to clear up any questions about your financial aid. Before you book, remember log into BannerWeb to:
    • View Financial Aid requirements via Bannerweb
    • Check your award,
    • Check your account balance, and
    • Accept Your Award
  3. Confirm Housing Assignment If needed, contact the office of Campus Living and Housing at 318.274.2504 or to clear up any questions about your Housing status. Before you call, remember log into BannerWeb; click the “My Housing” tab to:
    • Check your housing status,
    • Complete a housing application (if applicable),
    • Complete Housing Payment ($200 application fee; if applicable),
    • Select a room (if applicable),
    • Complete an off-campus approval form (if applicable) 
  1. Accept and Pay Fees If needed, book an online appointment to clear up any questions about your student account or balance.   No cash payments are being accepted due to COVID-19.  All payments should be completed online.  To be completely enrolled, you must visit BannerWeb to “Accept and Pay Fees.” Select Student > Registration > Accept/Pay Fees.

Payment Due Date for Fall 2021 – August 6, 2021 ($150 Late Fee applicable August 13, 2021)

  1. Verify Fee Sheet Ensure that your fee sheet says “registered.” If your fee sheet does not say “registered,” make an online appointment with the Student Accounts office through the Online Student Support Center.
  1. Next Steps for Fall Coming Soon You can choose to upgrade your meal plan. You’ll also get your Tiger1 Card, G-FLEX and more in the coming months. Each student living in University Housing will automatically receive the 24/7 Silver plan. There is no need to change or choose a different plan in the Fall unless you would like to upgrade your plan to Gold or Platinum.
