Traditional Undergraduate Students

Prior to registration, you must meet with an academic advisor to review your schedule and get your Alternate PIN. If you're unsure who your advisor is, consult your Degree Works audit, check with Academic Counseling and Exploration or contact your school's Dean's Office. Before this meeting, you must prepare a tentative schedule and select alternate courses. You will register based on your classification for registration (see above to calculate your classification).

New and re-admitted students are students who are new to the university or are St. Edward's University students who have become inactive. Upon notification of eligibility from the Office of Admission, new, transfer and re-admitted students must contact Academic Counseling and Exploration to schedule an advising and registration appointment. You'll receive an acceptance packet from the Office of Admission which includes information about your student computer account. Contact the Office of Information Technology for instructions. New Freshmen and International Students will be advised and registered during their scheduled Orientation session.

New College Undergraduate Students

You'll register based on your classification for registration (see above to calculate your classification).

Continuing New College students do not require Alternate PINs for registration. Contact your advisor for any advising needs. 

New and re-admitted students are students who are new to the university or are St. Edward's University students who have become inactive. New and re-admitted students must contact the advisor indicated in your acceptance letter to schedule an advising and registration appointment and get your registration PIN. You'll receive an acceptance packet from the Office of Admission which includes information on your student computer account. Contact the Office of Information Technology. If you need registration assistance, contact your advisor or the Office of the Registrar.

Your registration group is "Graduate."

New and re-admitted students will receive an acceptance packet from the Office of Graduate Admission which includes information on your student computer account. Contact the Office of Information Technology for instructions. Contact the advisor indicated in your acceptance letter to schedule an advising and/or registration appointment. If you need registration assistance, contact your advisor or the Office of the Registrar.

New and re-admitted students should review the registration schedule once available for registration datesContinuing students are students enrolled in St. Edward's University courses during the current term or students with an active academic status. All students must have an active account to register via myHilltop. If you have problems with your login or password, contact the Help Desk at 512-448-8443.

Each student is responsible for determining, prior to the end of the adjustment period, whether he/she has the appropriate class schedule. Course prerequisites, compatibility with work schedule and class assignments should be considered carefully. All schedule adjustments must be processed by the published deadlines. Students are allowed to withdraw from courses during the posted schedule adjustment period. During this period, the refund schedules are adhered to.

Withdrawal Process

Students assume financial and academic responsibility for each registered course. Withdrawing does not automatically absolve a student's financial responsibility for his or her educational expenses. It is the student's responsibility to drop/withdraw from courses. Discontinuing attendance or notifying an instructor of a status change does not constitute a drop or withdrawal. The student is responsible for initiating and completing the drop or withdrawal procedure via myHilltop. If the student fails to complete the process, he or she will receive the grade(s) assigned by the instructor(s) of record and be billed accordingly. Learn more about the Formal Withdrawal process by viewing the Formal Withdrawal Checklist.

A student may add or drop courses any time during the registration period. After this period, a student may only withdraw from courses. Consult the dates and deadlines for the specific term.
