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.
  • Check the Registration Station for additional assistance available 24/7.
  • For classes that are closed, you may be able to get on the waitlist for the class. This option will show in the drop down box if available.

Student Identity Authentication Fee

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. The fee is assessed at the time that tuition and other fees are charged. You may pay for the fee with your tuition payment.

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:
