Registering for Classes

Current Student Registration

Step 1


Plan your course schedule carefully to keep changes to a minimum. Tuition, program length, and financial aid may be affected by course and/or section changes.

  1. Run a Program Evaluation, otherwise known as a degree audit, to plan your schedule and track your program progress.

  2. Work with your advisor to select courses and review your progress toward completing your program.

  3. Search My Hawkeye for your courses.

Step 2


If you are registering for a consecutive fall, spring, or summer semester you can register in My Hawkeye > My WebAdvisor > WebAdvisor for Students > Registration > Register for Sections.

Note: All new registrations must be completed by the end of the day on the Saturday before the term begins.

Step 3


Each credit for which you register, your Student Account will be charged the current tuition and fee rate.

You are responsible for payment for each course for which you register.

Non-payment or non-attendance does not withdraw you from your course(s).

There are several ways for you to pay your Hawkeye bill.

Step 4

Buy Books

Visit the Hawkeye Bookstore to:

  • Look up the textbooks you will need for each of your classes.

  • Buy used and new textbooks in-store or online.

Step 5

Attend Classes

It is very important for you to attend class beginning the first day.

  • Non-attendance and non-payment does not withdraw you from your course(s).

    If your plans change and you no longer wish to take the course(s) for which you have registered, you must officially withdraw from the course to avoid being charged.

  • You must attend class to receive your financial aid award and disbursement.

    If you are reported as not attending, the course credit hours cannot be included in your financial aid award package. The lesser number of credits may reduce the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive and your award  package will be adjusted accordingly.
