As a Non-Matriculated Student, How Do I Register For Courses?

Step 2: Receive Registration Approval

The Registrar's Office will forward an e-mail to you after your application is received and processed. The email will provide your assigned date and time to access Banner Web to complete the registration process. All applications must be received at least two business days prior to the start date of classes.
