Spring 2012 Registration Tutorials
Crouse Center staff offer individualized guidance in class registration and organizing a class schedule that meets your interests, while fulfilling degree requirements. As full-time advising staff, they dedicate their time and expertise in helping you meet your academic goals at AU.
Every full-time undergraduate student must confer with his or her advisor before class registration. We encourage you to meet with your academic advisor periodically during each semester. To prepare for a productive advising appointment, review the Undergraduate Course Catalog to get a sense of what classes you should enroll in for the following semester.
Freshmen and sophomore students register for classes in person with their advisor to offer guidance and direction. Junior and senior students have the option to register for classes online or in person with their advisor.
