Search and Register for Classes

Search and Register allows you to create your preferred list of classes (like a shopping cart) prior to your actual registration date.  Then on or after your registration date, you can complete the process of registering for your preferred classes (much like purchasing the items in you shopping cart) by re-accessing Search/Register for Sections.

How to Use Search and Register

  1. Log in to WebAdvisor.
  2. Locate and click the Search and Register for Sections link.

  3. On the Search/Register for Sections page, you must select the term/semester you wish to search within.  Click on the drop down arrow beside Term and click Fall 2009.  You must select at least one other search parameter (subject, sections meeting after, sections meeting before, day of the week, course title keyword, location, or instructor’s last name) to get search results.  After making at least two selections, (one being Term), click SUBMIT to get your results.  For example, if you wanted to search for section of ENG 111 in Fall 2009, you would select 2009FA in Term.  Then you would use the drop down arrow beside Subject to select ENG from the list.  Then in Course Number, you would type 111.  Then you would click SUBMIT.

  5. From your list of selection sections, you can start to build your list of preferred sections.  If the status of the class is Open, that means that seats are still available.  You may select multiple sections (in case your preferred section is closed on your registration date).  Remember, you are not registering now.  You are simply building a preferred list of sections.  Caution:  This does not hold a seat in the class(es) for you.
  6. If you are searching before your registration date, this is as far as you can go.  You can continue to add sections to your preferred list, but you cannot register until your registration date.  If you attempt to register before your date, WebAdvisor will return a message stating that you cannot register before your assigned date and time.  When it is your date to register, you will go back to the  Search/Register for Sections option.
  7. If you are searching on or after your registration date, you can proceed with registration.  In the Action block beside the course(s) for which you wish to register, use the drop down arrow to select Register.  When finished, click SUBMIT.
  8. WebAdvisor will return a Registration Results page.  If you encountered no error messages, your status will appear as “Registered for this section” as it does in the example below.  At this point you can click OK.  You have now reserved your seat for the selected section(s).  You must pay to complete your registration.
