Registration is a process in which all incoming and current students become officially enrolled in courses for the next semester at Briar Cliff. This is the best place to start to understanding how you can start your registering process or sign up for orientation.  

 Registration Process

The process to register varies slightly, depending on the type of academic program and whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student.  Generally, the process involves consultation between the student and the student's academic adviser. 

  1. Pay any outstanding balances from the previous semester.
  2.  All undergraduate and graduate students are assigned an academic advisor. Since the process varies, we recommend scheduling a meeting with your academic advisor every semester so that they can help you navigate registering and make sure that you are on pace to meet your goals for graduation and beyond. Don't who is your advisor? Get in touch with academic advising
  3. Meet and register for classes. 
  4. After completing your registration, print your schedule or add you schedule to your calendar. Note: the add/drop date for the semester.
  5. Pay that semester's tuition and fees before the deadline.
