Enrolling in Classes This is the video, “How
to Register for a Class.” In this video, you will
learn
how to enroll in classes at Illinois State University. Before we begin, keep in
mind
that you will only be able to register for classes during
certain times of the year, known as “registration
times”
or “enrollment appointments.” This video will show you
how to find your specific enrollment appointment
time,
register for a class, or drop a class. Begin by opening
a web browser. Navigate to
my.illinoisstate.edu. Then, click the button that
says Sign in using Central Login. Enter your University
Login ID in the ULID field. Enter your password in the
Password field, and click the Sign In button. Click the Academics tab
in the top navigation bar. Under the Course Manager
header, click on the Course Registration link. Again, enter your
University
Login ID in the ULID field. Enter your password in the
password field, and click the Sign In button. Once you are logged in,
click
the Student Service Center link in the top
navigation bar. The Student Service Center
contains lots of different information, including your
class schedule, holds, and to do lists. On the right side, under
the
Enrollment Dates header, you can see your enrollment
appointment for the upcoming semester. Your enrollment appointment
is the date on which you can start registering for
classes. You should always meet with
your academic advisor before this date. I am logged in as Regina
Redbird and you can see that Regina can begin to
register
for the fall 2015 semester starting April 6. You will not be able to
register for classes before your enrollment
appointment begins. If you do not see a
specific
date listed here, then you have not yet been assigned
an enrollment appointment. Under the Enrollment Dates
header on the right side of the screen, click the
Details
link under your enrollment appointment to see the
exact
time that your enrollment appointment starts. This opens the term
information subtab under the Enroll tab. Currently, this subtab is
showing enrollment date information for the Fall
2015 semester for Regina. In this subtab is a
chart labeled “Enrollment Appointments”. In this chart, the
enrollment
appointments for each session is listed under the
“Appointment Begins” column. To see your appointment
time
for a different semester, click the change term
button
located above the Enrollment Appointments chart. A chart labeled “Select a
term then click Continue” will appear. Click the radio button next
to the term you want to view. I am going to select the
radio
button next to Summer Semester 2015. Then, click the Continue
button located below the chart. The enrollment dates
information is shown again, but now contains
information
regarding the summer 2015 semester. Return to the Student
Services
Center by clicking the Student Services Center link at
the top navigation bar. Once your enrollment date
and
time have been reached, you can register for classes. To begin the registration
process, click the Enroll link in the Academics section of
the Student Services Center. The add subtab under the
Enroll tab will appear. The Select Term
page is displayed. Under this heading is a
chart
labeled “Select a term then click Continue”. In this chart, click the
radio
button next to the semester that you want to register. I am going to select the
radio button next to the Fall Semester 2015. Then, click the Continue
button located below this chart. The first step of the
registration process will appear. This step is labeled “1. Select classes to add.” First, search for the class
that you want to register for. Under the Find Classes
header,
click the radio button next to Class Search. Then, click the search
button below the same header. The page changes to the
“Enter
Search Criteria” page, which is the basic class search. The basic class search
allows
you to search by subject, course number, and
academic career. Click the green arrow next
to
the Additional Search Criteria heading to see
even more options. This displays the options
for the advanced search. This advanced search allows
you to find classes based on meeting times and days by
using the Meeting Start Time, Meeting End Time, and Days
of
Week fields, instructors, by using the Instructor Last
Name
field, key words, by using the Course Keyword
field, and more. In this example, I am going
to
search for all English classes that meet on Mondays,
Wednesdays, and Fridays. To accomplish this, I will
select English from the dropdown menu next to
Subject
and select the checkboxes next to Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday under the Days of Week field. The term “include only
these
days” is displayed in the Days of Week dropdown menu, so I
will leave this field as is. Once you’ve set your search
parameters, click the Search button at the bottom
right of the screen. A list of search
results will appear. Classes with a blue box
under
the Status column are closed. Scroll through this list
to view classes with open sections. A class with an open
section
will be designated with a green circle under
the Status column. To enroll in a class, click
the select button located at the end of the row
of the desired class. To see more information
about
a class, click on either link under the Class or
Section columns. You can click either link;
they will take you to the same page, which is the
Class Detail page. The Class Detail page
appears. Under the Meeting
Information
header, you can see when the class meets in the Days &
Times column, where the class meets in the Room column,
the
name of the class instructor in the Instructor column,
a description of the class content under the
Description
header, and required and recommended textbooks under
the Textbook/Other Materials header. Under the Class
Availability
header, you can also see how many students have already
enrolled in the class in the Enrollment Total field,
and the remaining number of available seats in the
Available Seats field. To return to your search
results, click the View Search Results button located at
the
bottom right of the screen. However, I want to register
for this class, so I will click the Select Class
button
located to the right of the View Search Results button. The “1. Select classes to add –
Enrollment Preferences” page will appear. In most cases, if you have
been granted an override to enroll in a class,
the override will work automatically. Overrides are given for
specific class sections. Click the Next button
located
below the Class Preferences header to continue. A confirmation window will
appear, and the class will be added to your shopping
cart,
which will be displayed on this screen. Continue to search for and
select classes until all of the classes you want to
register for are in your shopping cart. If you want to remove a
class,
click the trashcan button located under the Delete
column of the row of the class you would like to remove
in your shopping cart. You can exit the Student
Services Center and come back at a later time to
finishing
searching for and adding classes to your cart. Keep in mind that your seat
in the class is not reserved simply because the class
is in your shopping cart. Your seat will only be
reserved after you complete the registration process. Once you are ready to
register
for the classes in your shopping cart, click the
Proceed To Step 2 Of 3 button located below your
shopping cart. A confirmation
page, titled “2. Confirm classes,” will
appear
listing the classes that you are enrolling in. Double-check the list to
make sure that it’s correct. To cancel your enrollment,
click the Cancel button below the class or classes
you are enrolling in. This will return you to
your
shopping cart, where you can make additional
changes as before. If you are satisfied that
the
list is correct, click the Finish Enrolling button
located below the class or classes you are enrolling
in. The page titled “3. View Results” will appear. If the enrollment is
successful, you will see a chart on this screen with a
message telling you the class has been added to your
schedule under the Message column and a green
checkmark
under the Status column. If the enrollment fails,
you
will see a red X under the Status column and a message
explaining why you were not able to register for the
class
under the Message column. Scroll to the top
of the screen. To drop a class that you
have
enrolled in, click the Drop subtab next to the
right of the add subtab. This will open the first
page
of the drop subtab, titled “1. Select classes to drop”. On this page is a chart
with
the classes that you are enrolled in. Click the checkbox under
the
Select column next to the class you want to drop. Then, click the Drop
Selected
Class button located below this chart. A confirmation page titled
“2. Confirm your
selection” will appear. A chart with the class or
classes you wish to drop will display on this page. This screen will confirm
that
you want to drop the class or classes. To confirm your selection,
click the Finish Dropping button located
below this chart. A page titled “3. View results” will appear. You will see a results page
telling you if the class was dropped successfully. If the class has been
dropped
successfully, “Success: This class has been removed from
your schedule” will be listed under the Message column
along
with a green checkmark under the Status column. On this screen, the green
checkmark stands for a “Success: dropped” status. This concludes the video
