Quick Guide: Getting registered for the Fall Trimester

It’s already that time again, huh?  If you’re planning on taking courses for the Fall Trimester, this quick guide to getting your ducks in a row will help you stay up to date on deadlines and reminders.  Please see the checklist below:

  • First and foremost, you’re going to need to contact your advisor for course approvals. This is going to kickstart the process for your financial aid as it will allow you to complete your study plan which can be done on your MyExcelsior page.
  • Please remember that course registration for Fall I and Fall II opens on June 30, 2016. Right now would be a great time to get those course approvals.
  • If you are filling out a FAFSA for the Fall Trimester, the form needs to be updated from your 2015 tax return. Once you complete your study plan, the Financial Aid office needs 10-14 business days to process your award package.  Once the processing is complete, you will be notified via email.
