Additional preparation

Check and resolve any bursar, advising, or disciplinary holds on your account.  You can view these in self-service.

Add new majors or minors prior to registration.  This is especially true if you are trying to add a course that limits enrollment based on specific major(s) and/or minor(s).  Submit your update at least a week prior to your registration window opening.
