Preparing for Class Registration:

  • Just Getting Started?
    • Review Degree Works - also accessible via the link within CougarNet.
    • Verify that your account is paid up through the last term.  Contact the Bursar Office with any questions.
    • If you have not done so already, meet with your Academic Advisor or Graduate Program Director as soon as possible to discuss your enrollment plans.  They will also be able to release your advising check-in hold and assist with other registration holds.
    • This is a good time to verify that your address, phone number, and emergency contact information are correct. You may view and update this information by using the Personal Information menu in CougarNet.
