Registering for Courses
Students who wish to register for courses must do so online through Self Service. Instructions on how to register along with an explanation of the registration pages in Self Service can be located in our Student myCampus Registration Guide.
Registration Quick Tips
- Be sure you have been cleared to register by your advisor. Information on how to locate your advisor in Self Service can be located in our Student myCampus Registration Guide.
- Be sure you do not have any holds on your account that would keep you from registering. Information on how to view your holds in Self Service can be located in our Student myCampus Registration Guide.
- If you register for a course that you do not plan on taking, please make sure you drop the course in Self Service. Failure to do so may result in a 'WN' grade on your transcript. You could also be held financially responsible for these courses.
If available, the form for Late Registration can be obtained below.
The maximum academic load for students with less than a 3.50 cumulative grade point average shall not exceed 18 hours per semester, 7 hours per ﬁve-week summer term, 15 hours per combined summer terms which includes May and August Interims. However, graduating seniors will be permitted to carry a one-hour overload during the last enrollment period if the one-hour overload will complete graduation requirements.
Students holding a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or above may request permission of the dean of their college to schedule up to 21 Fall or Spring hours (18 Summer hours) in a semester.
Students should enroll for no more than ﬁfteen semester hours on a three-day schedule (MWF), or no more than twelve semester hours on a two-day schedule (TTh).
The total academic load resulting from concurrent enrollments at Arkansas State University and other institutions shall not exceed the maximum load stated above. Correspondence and off-campus courses are to be included when computing academic load for each enrollment period.
Permits to register for courses are given by the department that houses the course. If you know you will need a permit to register for a course, please contact the department.
Web courses and web assisted courses are those that utilize the Internet for the instructional method between instructors and students.
Online classes are assessed a Student Identity Authentication fee to meet accreditation standards. The Federal Compliance Fee is applied to cover costs to meet Higher Learning Commission (HLC) federal compliance standards through authentication processes that include a variety of verification methods that best meet program needs. HLC guidelines require verification of the identity of students participating in online programs and classes institution-wide.
Proctoring services may include live proctoring that allows students to take exams from a secure environment using a secure personal computer. Instructors will provide specific information as to the methods and services used to authenticate student identity.
Specific information regarding cost per credit hour for the Student Identity Compliance fee may be viewed at the following links:
The fee is assessed at the time that tuition and other fees are charged. You may pay for the fee with your tuition payment.
