Registering for Classes

Step One

Clear any Registration Holds

Sign in to My ASU to determine if you have any holds that will prevent you from registering for classes. Examples of registration holds include missing transcripts, unpaid fees, academic advising requirements and immunizations requirements. Clearing registration holds as quickly as possible avoids delays in registration which can impact your chances of getting the classes and schedule that are best for you.

For more information on a particular hold, select Help on My ASU and enter any questions.

Step Two

Register for Classes

Once you have cleared any registration holds, you are ready to register for classes. You may register for classes online or in person. You can also search for available classes online.

Undergraduate students should check out this article explaining how to use your major map and DARs, or watch this video with step-by-step instructions on how to register.

Graduate students, you should review your plan of study (iPOS) as your program roadmap to help you stay on track for graduation.

Step Three

Pay Tuition and Fees

Once you are registered, sign in to the My ASU Finances tab to view and pay your tuition and fees. More information regarding how tuition and fees are calculated and important deadlines for paying tuition and fees is available via Student Business Services and the Registration and Tuition Payment Guide.

Step Four

Purchase Textbooks

Sign in to My ASU to obtain your required book list by selecting Books in the My Classes box and order textbooks through ASU Bookstores.
