Registering for Classes
Each semester you and your advisor will choose classes to take during the next semester. You register for classes through your VandalWeb account (link to Vandal Accounts Set Up page Wording “Remind me about VandalWeb” or something like that). Make sure you understand the information found on the Office of the Registrar’s Registration website or by watching the videos (aimed at First year and New Transfer students) or the refresher how to register video.
