Heads up, Hilltoppers! March is the month to review courses with your success coach or academic advisor in order to meet your degree plan. And April 1–6 is the time to register for your Summer and Fall 2020 courses. Freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors are assigned specific days to register (see below). Follow these important steps to make sure you’re ready for classes this summer and fall.

Advising Steps

Students can contact their success coach or primary advisor remotely to review courses and receive their PIN to register for courses. 

Advising for Summer* and Fall 2020 classes begins March 1. Between March 1 and March 31, follow these steps to ensure you are able to register in April:

STEP 1: Review Degree Works in myHilltop, and identify courses needed to meet your degree plan. Then, build a plan in Degree Works.

STEP 2: Schedule an appointment with your success coach or academic advisor to discuss your plan in Degree Works and receive your PIN. Not sure who your advisor is? Your Primary Advisor (PRIM) is listed in Degree Works.

STEP 3: Log in to myHilltop and see if you have any registration holds (either from Student Financial Services or the Registrar). You must take care of any holds before you can register.

STEP 4: Log in to myHilltop and review your assigned registration day.

* Our new cost-saving summer courses are offered at a 40% tuition discount! They include online, blended (mixture of online and face-to-face) and on-campus courses. You can access the summer course list on myHilltop.

Registration Steps

STEP 1: On your assigned day, log in to myHilltop and register for classes. Note: Your registration status may not be the same as your classification. To determine your assigned day, log in to myHilltop and click “Prepare for Registration.” Then, select “FA/SU2020” and click continue. Look for the text that reads, “Your class standing for registration purposes is ____________.” Then, reference the schedule to determine your day for registration:

  • Wednesday, April 1 – Seniors (not graduating May 2020)
  • Thursday, April 2 – Juniors
  • Friday, April 3 – Sophomores
  • Monday, April 6 – Freshmen

Please Note: To give students more time to connect with their advisors and provide flexibility while adjusting to remote learning, we have suspended the PIN requirement to register from April 1–13. The PIN requirement to register for courses or make registration changes will resume on April 14.

The following offices will provide academic and technical support to clear barriers and help you register: Student Financial Services, Registrar’s Office, IT, representatives from each school and the Student Success Center (Academic Counseling and Exploration, Academic Support Programs, International Student Services, Study Abroad, and Career and Professional Development).
