Follow these STEPS to Register for Fall 2020:

As we transition to MyLawson and a new schedule and registration platform, follow these steps to register for fall classes.


STEP 1:  Schedule a Virtual Advising Appointment in the Virtual Advising Center


Today, go to the 
Virtual Advising Center  and schedule a virtual advising session with an Academic Advisor of your choice.  If you have already met with an advisor, you can skip this step.  Determine during that session what specific courses you will need to register in for the upcoming fall term.  If you have already met with your advisor, skip to STEP 2.


STEP 2:  Select Your Courses via Banner's Dynamic Schedule Lookup

View the Schedule of Classes  and select your classes.  You will be viewing the new Banner Dynamic Schedule lookup screen.  Craft out your schedule and write down the CRN (Course Record Number) for each class you map out on your schedule.  Be sure that you do not select any classes that conflict with one another.  If so, the system will NOT permit you to register with known conflicts.

STEP 3:  Register for Your Classes  in the New MyLawson System

View these two brief videos.  The first one deals with the types of classes we are offering this fall.  The second is our Registration video using the new MyLawson system (See below).  Then, go to your MyLawson account (located at the top our website) and register for your classes using your CRN numbers (secured via the Dynamic Course Schedule in Banner).  

COURSE DELIVERY TYPES:




HOW TO REGISTER VIDEO:




HOLDS:
  If you have any HOLDS, they will have to be cleared before you can register.  To clear a HOLD, go to MyLawson and click on the "Lift My Hold" button. This is your first step in getting rid of your hold.  Remember, some holds are easier to clear than others. If you owe the college money, you will have to work through that issue before registering. Other holds, like advising holds or Admissions holds are easy to clear.

NOTE: If you already built your schedule under the OLD Student Suite system, you DO NOT have to rebuild your schedule.  The College moved your schedule over.  Just go to MyLawson to view it and double check it for accuracy.


STEP 4:  Pay Your Tuition and Fees--Apply Pell

After you register for your classes, login your MyLawson  account and on "Student Accounts" to either pay for your tuition and fees online or Apply your Pell to pay for your bill. 


NEW ATTENDANCE POLICY: 


Students who fail to attend class the first week will be automatically dropped from their classes.  To establish attendance in a hybrid, online, virtual or online class, complete the Syllabus Quiz or Syllabus acknowledgement form within the class. If you do not see either, participate by completing any first week assignment or discussion board the first week of class. 
Failure to complete any work the first week will cause you be dropped from the class automatically.
