The following instructions will help you when registering for your classes online using Web for Students.

  2. Enter your Clark Account username and password. Click Login

Access CU Web Registration

  1. Once logged in, select "Main Menu" under the CU Web quicklinks found along the left side of any ClarkYOU page
  2. Select Registrar's Office, Student Account and Financial Aid
  3. Select Add/Drop Classes

Add/Drop Classes

When registering for the first time, a blank registration form will appear. After that, when adding/dropping classes, you will see your Current Schedule on top and the Add Classes area below. To view Course Offerings, click that link at the BOTTOM of the page.

  1. In the Add Classes table, enter the CRN number for each course. This number appears in the first column of the course schedule. Use a separate box for each CRN. Click Submit Changes after you have made all your entries.
  2.  In this example two CRNs have been entered          

 

3.    The first CRN (40468) was successfully registered and you see it listed here in the Current Schedule section with "Web Registered" and the date in the Status column.  The second CRN (40475) caused a Registration Error.  You will see errors listed below the Current Schedule section under "Registration Errors".


In this case, the course has reached capacity and registration will require contacting the COPACE office. For information on other errors, see the Common Errors section of these instructions

  1. Use the Add Classes section of this screen to add other CRNs. Click Submit Changes to register.
  2. Continue to register until all of the classes you are interested in have been successfully registered and appear in the Current Schedule section.  Remember to look at the Total Credit Hours section below the Current Schedule to keep track of the current amount of Credit Hours you have scheduled.
  3. To drop classes, view your Current Schedule. Use the drop-down arrow in the Action field next to the class you want to remove from your schedule. Choose Drop Course on Web and then click Submit Changes. When your Current Schedule reappears, the course you dropped should no longer be there.

Common Errors

Classes for which you have NOT been successfully registered will appear under the Registration Errors section as seen in Add/Drop Classes. You must scroll to the right to view the Status column of that table to determine the reason for the error.

Some of the most common errors are listed here:

Maximum Hours Exceeded Undergraduates maximum of 4.50 units; graduate students maximum of 6.000 units. You must drop a course first before adding another to your schedule.

Perform a Class Search

You may search the schedule to determine class availability and register for a class directly from the results window.

  1. Below the Add Classes section, click the Class Search Button.
  2.  In the Class Search dialog box, enter the chosen parameters for your search. For example, you could search for all American Sign Language courses.


  3. Please note: you must select a subject; other criteria are optional. Click Class Search at the bottom of the dialog box when ready to search.
  4. In the results window you will see the classes available for registration.

    • The checkbox under "Select" indicates that you may register for the class. To do so, click the box to select the class, then click the Register button. Click Class Search again to begin a new search.

Printing Your Schedule

When you have successfully registered for all of your classes and lab/discussion sections, you may print your schedule.

  1. On the Add/Drop Classes page, use the Student Schedule by Day and Time link at the bottom of the page to view your detailed schedule.
  2. Your courses will appear in a grid format. Follow the instructions on the screen to see next semester's course schedule. Within the grid, click on course subject and number to view particular course details (see below).

  3. Then go to File > Print. It is also a good idea to do a Print Preview before printing. You may need to change the page orientation to "Landscape" (in the Print Dialog box).

Revising Your Schedule

To make changes to your schedule online after you have already registered, go to the Add/Drop Classes section. If you have already registered for your maximum number of units, you must drop a course before you can add another to your schedule. Make sure to click on Submit Changes to process. Check the Current Schedule section to be sure your changes were successfully processed. All class restrictions, enrollment cap, etc., are in effect during schedule revision.
