New Students

Once you have applied and been admitted you will receive an email with your student account and Basecamp login. Basecamp will be home for important announcements, your student email and Student Self Service.

Student Self Service provides access to:

  • Student Planning, where you can search for classes, plan your degree and view your academic progress. After you have worked with your campus to complete all necessary steps to be registration ready, you can register for classes.
  • Student Finance, where you can view statements and make payments.
  • Financial Aid, where you can access financial aid data and Forms.

Basecamp login required.

Registration follows early registration. The specific time period is designated by the academic calendar and is open to all students and for all class types (credit and Continuing Education/non-credit, and CEU).

All methods of registration (online, in-person, or by mail) are available for students to use.

Contact your campus, seek advising and register before your credit class starts!

Dropping a Course

If you need to drop a course, it can be completed in Student Planning on Basecamp, or in-person or by mail. The Registration Add/Drop form is required for in-person or by mail methods.
