How do I register for classes at ASU?
Just prior to each registration
period, special registration packets are available in Admissions (also
available in the Center). With Adobe Acrobat
Reader (free) installed, a student can print the Registration Worksheet.
The course schedule booklets are available near the beginning of registration in Student Records (Payne Hall, 1st floor) and on campus network computers. (Updated open class listings are also posted in the Center.) A non-degree seeking student should seek advising assistance in the department(s) offering the desired course(s). After selecting courses and obtaining necessary on-line permissions (prerequisite bypass, permission only, etc.), the student follows the registration procedure outlined in the Q&A: How Do I Register? handout from the Center.
Prerequisites are critical!
Non-degree seeking students should consult the current ASU catalog and/or the academic department offering the courses for which they intend to register. Prior to registration, they should submit to the department in which the course is offered a transcript showing successful completion of required prerequisite courses. The department must then grant any required permission on-line before the student may register for that course.
When may I register for classes?
Non-degree seeking students register by category, not by class year. Consult the published campus schedule for the day and time for Post-Bac, Post-Grad, or Audit registration.
How do I change my non-degree seeking student status?
For undergraduate programs, consult the ASU Admissions Office.
For a graduate program, apply to the department offering that program (phone numbers and locations listed below).
What about ID cards, parking permits, and books?
All students should have an ASU ID
made when beginning at ASU. After paying fees, the student takes the receipt
and a photo ID by the Student Activities Office (Washington Hall, second
floor). This permanent card must be validated for each term of enrollment. The
ASU ID card serves as the student's library card, is necessary for use of
campus facilities and labs, allows free transportation on
Every student parking on campus
must have an ASU parking sticker displayed on his or her car. These parking
permits, valid through Summer term, may be purchased in ASU Police Department
It is often advisable to purchase textbooks after classes have begun. The ASU Bookstore (Washington Hall, first floor) has extended hours on the first two days of each term. A used book exchange (Washington Hall lobby) is operated at various times during the first several days of classes (See posted hours).
