Advising Support from UMAC
Registration is basically a three step process:
· Step 1: Selecting Classes
· Step 2: Registering For Classes
· Step 3: Paying For Classes
To make this process as easy as
possible, these steps are outlined in detail below. Fully completing each step
in order will simplify the registration process.
NOTE: Non-degree seeking students (Post-Bacs, Post-Grads, Audit, & Transients) should seek advising support in the
Step 1: Selecting Classes
§ Before their registration date and time, students should check with their advising department to determine specific advising procedures.
§ The student should regularly review educational plans, academic progress, and course selection with his/her Advisor.
The student must clear all holds or fines and
satisfy any special conditions before registration. Students may check
registration holds on ELROY (http://www.aug.edu/elroy),
and the advising department can check current holds on BANNER (SOAHOLD).
If a student needs an instructor's permission to take a specific course, to by-pass a prerequisites, or to take a closed class, the student must obtain that instructor's permision on BANNER and then register for that course.
§ Students should complete a schedule work sheet as follows:
1. Select both primary and alternate courses using the upcoming term's "Course Schedule Booklet" (see http://www.aug.edu/elroy).
For each course, list the CRN (Course Request Number)
and note course name, section letter, days and times.
Be sure to check for time conflicts. Also, courses may have "prerequisites" or "corequisites" which must be met; refer to the catalog at http://www.aug.edu/elroy.
3. Note “Audit” if class is to be taken for noncredit; "Normal" if class is to be taken for credit.
4. List several alternate courses to use if primary courses are closed.
5. Obtain all necessary signatures (and, if applicable, an Alternate/Term PIN).
Step 2: Registering For Classes
§ Students may register, add or drop any time after that indicated for their class/type and first letter of their last name according to the published schedule. If a desired course is closed, a student may try for another section of that same course or try for one of the alternates selected with the advisor.
§ FOR WEB REGISTRATION: if a student is eligible to register by web then he or she should, the student, with completed schedule/worksheet and pencil in hand, should connect to ELROY on the internet at http://www.aug.edu/elroy. Follow the instructions and select appropriate menu choices.
FOR PHONE REGISTRATION: if a student is
eligible to register by phone then he or she should, with completed
schedule/worksheet and pencil in hand, uses a touch-tone phone to call (706)
667-4737. The student then registers following ASTRO's instruction.
Always "confirm" courses on ASTRO. If a student encounters an issue with a course on ASTRO, he/she should try to register for the remainder of the schedule during that call and follow up as needed.
§ FOR ON-CAMPUS REGISTRATION: the student takes the completed schedule work sheet to the registration site (check the Course Schedule Booklet). The student should proceed as directed and wait until the next registration station is free. The student will then give the schedule sheet to the operator who will enter the schedule. If any of the classes are closed, the student may try for a different section of that class, or use one of the alternates previously selected with the advisor. When the schedule is completed, the student then proceeds to the pick up station to receive the schedule.
§ The student should check the schedule and bill for errors or scheduling conflicts. If there is a problem, he/she should seek assistance at the registration “HELP” area or the Registrar’s Office (Payne Hall).
§ FINANCIAL AID: Students should login to ELROY to check for awarded financial aid. If a financial award (grant, scholarship, or any other officially awarded financial assistance) does not show on ELROY or is not preprinted on a bill printed at on-campus registration, the student must go to the Financial Aid Office (Payne Hall) to have any award verified and entered on the bill before Step 3.
Step 3: Paying For Classes
The student should follow ELROY/ASTRO's
instructions to check the amount due for registered classes.
Students may print detailed schedule and billing information from ELROY or may request a printed schedule/bill from Student Records.
§ Payment in full by the due date is required for registration. Fees cannot be deferred.
§ When paying by credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover) on ELROY/ASTRO, students should have the credit card in hand and follow instructions carefully. To pay by cash, check, or money order, students may visit the Business Office (Fanning Hall) during regular office hours.
FINANCIAL AID: If students have any
questions about their financial aid (grant, scholarship, or any other
officially awarded financial assistance), they must consult with the Financial
Aid Office (Payne Hall, 2nd floor) well before the fees due date.
Students who want or need a printed receipt should see the Business Office (Fanning Hall).
§ ID CARDS: NEW STUDENT (or out for more than a year) - after fee payment, must bring an official photo identification to the Student Activities Office (Washington Hall, second floor) to have ASU-ID card made and validated. RETURNING STUDENT - after fee payment, take the ASU-ID card to Student Activities or the Library (show receipt) for current term validation. (To REPLACE AN ASU- ID CARD, students pay a replacement fee at the Business Office and bring the receipt to Student Activities.)
PARKING PERMITS: Students may pay for a
parking permit when paying tuition in the Business Office (save receipt) or by
check/cash at the Public Safety Office. Permits, valid through Summer term, are
obtained from the Public Safety Office, off
§ Last Steps: Attend class and buy books.
