Course registration opens on Nov 30 at 9 a.m. Eastern time

With course registration opening soon, we encourage you to take some time to double check a few important items.

**Please note, because of the Thanksgiving holiday, Case Western Reserve University will be closed from Wednesday, Nov. 22 at 3 p.m. until Monday, Nov. 27 at 8:30 a.m. Although you will still be able to login to SIS and, staff will be unavailable to provide support until the university reopens.

  1. Act to remove any pre-registration holds in SIS. Prior to registration, confirm that any holds have been removed from your account by viewing the Tasks tile in SIS. If you have a hold, use the links below for instructions on how to lift that hold.
  2. Review follow-up guidance from your four-year advisor. After your first meeting, you received a summary email discussing courses to enroll in this spring. In addition to the course selection resource, you should review this guidance before registering for courses.  
  3. Confirm that AP, IB, and/or approved transfer credit is posted as you expected. You can check this in SIS in the “Grades and History” tile, and then click “Course History.” If you believe you have official AP or IB credit that is missing, first confirm that you have submitted your official scores to CWRU. You can then follow up with your four-year advisor for further support.
  4. Prepare your Shopping Cart. Before the registration period begins:
    • Review the SIS instructions on how to register from your Shopping Cart (Steps 16-20)
    • Validate your Shopping Cart in SIS to double check for date/time conflicts or pre/co-requisite issues.
    • If needed, review instructions for requesting class permissions and consult with your four-year advisor before making a request
  5. Log in on Nov. 30 and enroll. When registration opens on Nov. 30 at 9 a.m. Eastern time, return to your Shopping Cart in SIS and click “enroll” to process your registration.
    • After you register for your classes, visit your Roadmap to update your checklist and mark “First-Year Registration” as complete and refresh the page.
    • If you selected a Topical Seminar, a new item "Academic Inquiry Seminar Placement Times" will activate to allow you to indicate your interests.
    • If you selected Foundations Seminar or Seminar for Non-Native Speakers of English, you will be placed in a section that fits your schedule, and do not need to take any further action.

Good luck with registration!
