Pre-Registration Advising

The Office of Student Development and Success (OSDS) is committed to helping you strategically plan and build the best course schedule, allowing you to progress to your major department and graduation. We are your partners through this process! Continuing students please follow the steps below to better understand what you need to do for Pre-Registration Advising.

New First-Year students, check out our New Student Information page for information on being prepared for your 1st semester.  The information for New 1st -Year Students is different from our continuing College of Engineering students.

Log in to your COE-Advising Canvas page and go through the Pre-Registration Advising modules.

The University Academic Calendar posts the date the schedule is available to view in Banner. Look up the course you will need based on the Academic Plan of Study for you major. 

Download your plan from the OSDS website under Advising > Academic Plans of Study

Fill out your Plan of Study with your past semester's grades and their corresponding semester. Also note the courses you want to take in the next semester.

If you are a first-semester student or received an Early Alert you will need to schedule an advising appointment with your Major Advisor via Connect.

Once you have reviewed your Academic Plan of Study & chosen your next semester courses, fill out your Plan & upload it to Canvas for approval from your Major Advisor. Once you have received approval, your advising hold will be removed from your account.

Based on your approved Academic Plan of Study, register for the courses you and your Major Advisor decided were best for your path forward.


If you have questions about registering for classes you should make an appointment or email your Major Advisor. You can find your Major Advisor listed under your Success Team in Connect and on your Advising Transcript in Banner Self Service.
