6. Select the term near the upper left, using the arrows. If you need to add a term, click the plus (“+”) button, select the term with the drop-down arrow, and click “Add Term.”

7. Review the left side of the page to see any courses already added to your course Plan for the upcoming semester. If you don't see any classes down the left side of the page, go to step B. (If you are not in an academic program, you still need to add classes to your course Plan before you can register for them.)

     A. To select a section for a course that is on your Plan:

  • Click “View other sections” under the course. Available course sections will be listed under the course on the left and on the calendar.
  • Select a specific section by clicking on it, either in the list or on the calendar. When the “Section Details” window opens, click “Add Section (Not Yet Registered)” at the bottom. The section will be added to your schedule, but you will not yet be registered. Go to step 8.

How to Look Up Class Meeting/Delivery Method Details

Instructions for seeing how specific sections of a course will meet or be conducted are available in our Search for Class Availability article.

Once you are registered for classes, you can find the class meeting/delivery method details in your Class Schedule. See the View Your Class Schedule article.

Terminology

A course section that is synchronous has specific times when everyone meets, either online (often via video meetings in Zoom) or in person. For example, there may be a Zoom class meeting every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m.

A course section that is asynchronous does not have specific meeting times. Instead, there are typically specific times when an assignment must be submitted, such as "essay due by Tuesday, April 18 at 5:00 p.m." An asynchronous section may have exams  with more specific timeframes.

If you are already registered, you can contact your instructors directly for details about your specific classes. Once a class begins, you can find the details in Moodle.
