Registration Information

Registration FAQ

Registration advising is  NOT  required for psychology majors. Still want advising? Go here first.  Here’s how you can  prepare yourself  for registration!

  1. Check your Registration Information Sheet (RIS)  for your registration times and any bars; for questions about how access times are assigned, click here.
  2. Review your Degree Audit  to see which requirements you lack. Click “Access IDA Now”⇒ “Audit Results” on the left side—there should already be a recent audit. 
  3. Look at your degree plan
  4. Look at the Summer & Fall  course schedules, for class options. Summer course schedule is out now; Fall course schedule will be out on April 6 by 5 pm.
  5. Check pre-requisites by clicking on the unique number (blue 5-digit # on course schedule).  The Psychology Department  strictly enforces pre-requisites for psychology courses.
