Dear New Student,

Registration for fall semester 2014 for new students entering the College happens in multiple stages. All new students register in June through ISIS, our Internet Student Information System. You will then have the opportunity to adjust your course registrations, as needed, once you arrive on campus in September.  June registration for new students begins Monday, June 9 and ends Friday, June 27 at 11:59 pm, EST. You may not use ISIS to register before this start date or after the end date. 

During the week of June 2 - 6, students with questions about course selection can email them to  A team of faculty and staff will field the emails during this special advising week.  The Office of Academic Deans will also host two on-line chats during which students can ask questions about course selection is real time.  The chats are scheduled for:

  • Tuesday, June 3 from 2:30-4pm EST, and
  • Thursday, June 5 from 2:30-4pm EST.

The chat can be accessed on each of those dates at

In order to access ISIS and register for classes, you will log on to ISIS using your 'user name/email ID' and 'password'. This is the same username and password you have been using during the admission process. If you are in need of assistance regarding your user name/email ID, please email the Registrar's Office.
