1. Plan your schedule. 
    • Check to see what classes are available by consulting the Schedule of Classes online. For additional help, you can watch this video on "How to Look Up Classes to Add."
    • Write down classes (CRN's) and times.
    • If you need special permission to take a class, make sure you get the proper approval.
    • If you need an instructor's permission to register for a class, be sure to contact the instructor or your School Office. Your School Office will approve and submit to the system the proper instructions that allow you to register for classes that require other permissions (i.e., major, class, discipline).
  2. Run and print your Degree Audit.
    It will be necessary for you to have the audit to be sure the classes you are registering for will meet the requirements needed for graduation. 
    • Sign on to Banner Self-Service
      • Select ‘Student Services and Financial Aid’
      • Select ‘Student Records’
      • Select ‘Degree Audit (formally CAPP)’ to run and print a Degree Audit. 
        Be sure to click the process button to ensure your audit includes current information.
    • Print your audit by clicking the Printer icon in the upper-right corner. This will create a printer-friendly PDF that is easy to read.
  3. See your advisor
    For you to register, you must see your advisor. 
    You may enter Banner Self-Service and look around, but the system will not allow you to register until your designated time.
    • Bring a new copy of your Degree Audit.
      If you have problems with obtaining your audit, there is a tutorial available from the Registrar's web page.
    • Be prepared to discuss your schedule with your advisor. 
    • Your advisor will provide you with an Alternate PIN that is needed for web registration.
  4. Log in to Banner Self-Service.
    • Click on "Login to Secure Area."
    • Enter your student ID and PIN. 
      If you have forgotten your PIN, enter your SID and click the "Forgot PIN?" button, and you will be guided through a process to reset your PIN.
    • Click on "Student Services."
    • Click on "Registration."
    • Contact the ITS Help Desk at 518-786-5000 if your PIN is disabled.
  5. Check your registration status. For additional help, you can view this video on "How to Check your Registration Status."
    • Select the appropriate term.
    • Your registration time and hold information will be the first items listed on this page. 
      You will not be allowed to register before your designated time or if you have holds. These holds may be administrative holds which require you to go to the Business Affairs, Health Services, or the Registrar's office. You will have to clear these holds before you can register. Because it sometimes takes a while to clear holds, you should do this as soon as possible.
    • The remainder of the information on this page deals with your academic record and information currently on file for you. 
      If you feel that any of this information is incorrect, go to your School Office to make the proper corrections.
  6. Register for classes by selecting "Add/ Drop Classes" when the registration menu is available. For additional help, you can view this video on "How to Register."
    • You will be asked for the Alternate PIN you received from your advisor. Enter the Alternate PIN and proceed to the next page.
    • To register for classes, enter the CRN's for the class.
    • When all of your CRN's are recorded, click on "Submit Changes."
    • Courses you are successfully registered for will appear in the "Current Schedule" section of the form and will show "**Registered on (date)**" in the status field.
      • Be sure to utilize the "Lookup classes to add" function if you need to search for additional classes - a minimum of a subject must be selected from a long list of choices.
      • Select your course and click on Register. 
        It is strongly suggested you do NOT use the "Add to Worksheet" button - other students can close courses you have pending in the worksheet. Any registration errors will appear beneath your schedule with a "Status Message" indicating the error. (For additional information regarding these error messages click on the appropriate link).
  7. Print by selecting "Student Schedule by Day and Time."
    • Initially, this shows your schedule for the current week.
    • To print your future schedule, you will either have to enter a date from that term (ex. 01/21/2019) or click "Next Week" until you get to the dates you want to print.
    • You may print directly from your browser by selecting the "Print" button or by selecting "File" and then "Print."
