Check for registration holds. Determine what academic, admission, or financial holds will keep you from registering by logging onto the ** BANNER Student Self-Service** or by stopping by the Office of the Registrar in Patton Hall Room 204.   Login to Banner Self-Service here.

Meet with your academic advisor. This is required of all AAMU Students prior to registration.

Before meeting with your Advisor, it is important that you:

If you are a first time-freshman, please go to the Academic Advising Center in Thomas Hall.

If you are a first-time transfer student, please go to the office of the chairperson of your selected department.

  1. Know what you need to take. If you have questions about what courses are required, refer to the AAMU Catalog in effect during your first semester of enrollment
  2. Review the schedule of classes and choose some possible courses
  3. Identify your time constraints (e.g., you can only take daytime classes on Mondays & Wednesdays).  Many programs have complex degree requirements or require that courses be taken in sequence. Your academic advisor will help you plan your academic program accordingly. Your academic advisor will also provide your Advising PIN “Alternate PIN”. It is your responsibility to set up an appointment with your academic advisor prior to registration to obtain this information.  Review course prerequisites and other course restrictions in the Undergraduate or Graduate School bulletins before you register. Be aware of all course and program requirements before registering.

    Complete any supplemental registration forms necessary for specified classes (Registration Permit Override Form, Course Overload Form, Visiting Student Form, etc.) and OBTAIN THE REQUIRED SIGNATURES on the supplemental registration forms. Do not leave these forms with your advisor. TAKE THESE FORMS TO THE APPROPRIATE OFFICES. 





Register for class:  Go to any campus computer lab or remote location or via your personal computer and access the ***BANNER Student Self-Service*** system to complete registration.  Have your Student Identification Number, Personal Identification Number (PIN), and Advising Pin ready for use before you attempt to register or to drop or add courses.


You must use a specific five-digit Course Reference Number (CRN) to register for each class (see course listings in the Banner Class Schedule). Verify courses and CRNs before you register to make sure you are entering the correct information.

Verify your schedule and review your tuition and fees in ***BANNER Student Self-Service**. After you register or make changes to your schedule, review your schedule to make sure there are no time conflicts and review your student account to see how much your tuition and fees are for the term.  Print a copy of your schedule after it has been verified for accuracy.   Also be sure to check rooms and meeting times prior to the first day of class.

REMEMBER:  you can always check your class schedule and student account information on the **BANNER Student Self-Service**.
