Note: When planning your term schedule, you can find and add Course Sections from both the Planned Courses list, or the Course Catalog. This guide will address both, but if you have any issues or questions about registering for classes please contact the Student Success Center @ (336) 734-7156.

If you are unable to register for a course that has seats available, there may be a hold on your account and you will need to contact the Cashier's Office @ (336) 734-7210.
