What are some helpful tips for registering for classes?

- You must log onto Campus Connection to up-to-date information on course offerings.
- Nursing curriculum is sequential—each semester must be completed entirely to progressing.
- You must register for coordinating section per the instructions.
- Pay to close attention to pre-requisites and co-requisites in courses.
- Pre-requisites means the course is completed or you may be currently enrolled.
- Co-requisite means you register and complete the courses in the same semester.
- You should register for all of the courses in your semester at the SAME TIME.
- Make sure the requested courses have open seats and are not full.
- You will not be allowed to register for classes if there is time conflict with another course you are registering for.
- If you get an error message, check each one individually. Messages can vary and may be "requisites not met," or there may be a "time conflict" or "section full."
- Time conflicts, full sections, or requisites not met for one course STOPS registration for all courses.
- If you have any holds on your account (from the Business Office or Registrar's Office, for example) you will not be able to register until you have taken care of the issue.
- Students in the nursing program who receive academic deficiencies will have a hold placed on their account and will be advised to see their faculty advisor in order to have the hold removed.
If you have transfer courses for science courses (like Physiology, Pharmacology or Statistics), you will need to review your "Student Transfer Evaluation" to see if they are approved to be equivalent to the required UND course. Please seek assistance from your Office of Student advisor, in this case, for guidance.
