Adviser Authorization Obtaining Adviser Authorization for Registration

All students must meet with their currently assigned adviser prior to registration, and only the adviser can mark you 'authorized for registration' in the computer. If you have two declared majors, only one major adviser authorization is needed. Minor advisers cannot authorize you for registration.

Do not wait until your 7:30 a.m. window opens to contact your adviser. Schedule an appointment with your adviser well in advance of your registration window. Respect your adviser's deadlines and requirements for authorizing you for registration and don't leave this to the last minute. Although only one major adviser authorization is required by WebAdvisor, students with multiple advisers are encouraged to meet with all of their advisers prior to registration to receive appropriate guidance for the upcoming term.

You may check that adviser authorization has given on the WebAdvisor "Holds and Registration Approvals" screen (see screen shot below). You also receive an automatic email notification when authorization is given. If these notifications are missing, then you will not be able to register when your window opens.

Only your adviser, or the department head of your adviser, can give authorization for you to register when your window opens.

If you don't have authorization when you begin registration, you will see the following error message: You are not eligible for registration. PLEASE SEE YOUR ADVISER FOR AUTHORIZATION TO REGISTER.
