REGISTRATION PROCESS AS RELATED TO ADVISING

 

There are several times during the year (in addition to other advising times) when advisors and advisees must meet together for the purpose of scheduling courses through the registration process. A student must meet with their advisor before the advisor will clear the student for on-line registration.

 

As a part of the academic planning that takes place prior to the registration process, it is very important for advisors to monitor the selection and sequencing of courses with prerequisites in mind.  Since it is the advisor who maintains a record of courses completed by an advisee (this record is also available to advisees on their MyStuff account, it is the responsibility of the advisor (and not the instructor of any particular course) to make sure the student has completed the necessary prerequisites.  (In some courses, the permission of the instructor may substitute for prerequisites.)  It increases the academic risks for students if they take courses for which they have not been adequately prepared. Therefore, checking academic records for prerequisites can increase the chances for academic success. (Prerequisites are included in course descriptions in the University Bulletin.)

 

Student advisees need to schedule appointments with their advisors and come prepared with a tentatively planned schedule for the semester for which they are registering.

 

Using: MyStuff – Search for Classes

Use MyStuff to create your tentative schedule for spring semester following these steps:

  1. Go to the HPU Homepage and click on MyStuff under the PANTHER POINT section.
  2. You do not need to log in to use the “search for classes” function.
  3. Click on “ Search for classes.”
  4. Click on “Search for classes” again. This will give you the “Search for Sections” screen.
  5. Under “Term,” click the drop down and select “Fall 2013 Day Term.”
  6. Under “subjects” select the department desired. (Example: English)
  7. Under “course number” enter the course number for which you are searching open sections; then hit “ENTER”
  8. The next screen will show your search results. In the second column [labeled “status”] it will show whether a particular section is open or closed. Under the column labeled “Available/Capacity” on the far right of the page it will show how many seats are available (the first number) out of the total seats available for that section [example: 12/26 means 12 seats available in a class of 26]. Please note that some courses have 2 pages of listings as noted at the very bottom of the page where it will say Page 1 of 2. If so, click “next.”

HINTS FOR SUCCESS

  1. PATIENCE: Don’t rush the system – give the system time to operate. DO NOT DOUBLE CLICK! Should you click on buttons more than once, the system is very sensitive – you may receive an error message and will need to click on “main menu” and/or “Log In” again.
  2. IDLE SCREEN: If your screen is idle for longer than 30 minutes, the system will automatically log you out. This is a security feature. Simply “Log In” again.
  3. NAVIGATION: DO NOT USE the “BACK” or “FORWARD” buttons, they are only enabled on certain features, get into the habit of using the “Main Menu” for navigation rather than using your browser.

 

STUDENT ADVISING & REGISTRATION PROCEDURES [to be used each registration period]
