General Advising: Come prepared with something to take notes during your appointment. You may need to record classes, contact information, or action steps. It is also helpful to come with your questions/concerns already outlined so you do not forget anything. 

If you are preparing for registration: Look at your Degree Works to see what requirements you have completed and still have to complete. Use the Course Search tool to see what courses are being offered and when. Check your Cyberbear Account for registration holds. You can create a course plan in Plan Ahead which will make your appointment quicker and easier.

Checking your holds

  • Log on to your Cyberbear Account. Look to the top right of your profile for the word ‘Holds’ and check for a number. If you see a number 1 or higher, that means you have holds on your account which can prevent registration. Click the word ‘Holds’ to see a list of your specific holds.

Clearing your holds

  • Review the Holds Website to find out how to clear your specific holds. Keep in mind that some holds (Bystander Training, for example) require you to register for and attend an in-person session. Likewise, if you need to submit an official transcript, there may be a delay in sending and evaluating the transcript.

You must connect with your advisor in order to receive your registration pin number. There are two ways you can receive your registration pin: 

  1. Schedule an Advising Appointment: You can schedule an advising appointment in Navigate to meet with your advisor to plan your courses and check graduation requirements. They will share you pin in the appointment 
  2. Create a Course Plan in Plan Ahead: You can create your own spring course plan in Plan Ahead and email your advisor. They will email you your pin if your plan does not require any significant changes. They may request an advising appointment with you if your plan needs substantial modifications. 

After you connect with your advisor your pin will be saved in the Notes section on your Cyberbear Account (to the right of your profile photo). 

Registration opens on different days for different students. There are two ways for you to check when registration opens for you: 

  1. Review the Priority Registration Timetable on the Registrar’s Office website. You will need to know your class standing (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, post-baccalaureate), and if you are in any cohorts (Honors, Athletes, Four Bear, ODE, Veterans). 

  2. Check your Registration Time Ticket on your Cyberbear Account. Log into your profile under the semester you plan on registering for and click the Registration Notices link in the top right of your profile and look for Time Ticket. You must have the correct semester to view your time ticket. 

Log in to your Cyberbear Account and click the Registration link (in the list of links below your profile photo). Select the semester you need to register for, click Register for Classes, select your semester (again), and input your registration pin. You can import a plan from Plan Ahead or search for individual courses to register. 

The Registrar’s Website lists many different tutorial documents and videos to assist with registration.They have tutorials for registering for variable credit hours, registering for a waitlist, registering for a linked course, using Plan Ahead, etc. Please refer to these resources if you need assistance with registration.

If you receive any error messages, first try to troubleshoot the error yourself by reviewing the list of Cyberbear registration errors. If you need to obtain consent of instructor to register, email the instructor. If you cannot fix the error on your own, email your advisor with the following information: 

  1. Course subject, course number, and CRN#. For example, PSYX 100S CRN# 30930. 
  2. Screenshot of error message or type out the exact wording of the error message.
