 BEFORE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO REGISTER two things are required:

  1. Using the Dashboard, complete Pre-Registration.
  2. Advisor authorization: Select your courses, then schedule an appointment to meet with your advisor (bring your laptop). They will give you advisor authorization and will work with you to complete the registration process.
  • Once these two steps are complete, you will be able to use the Registration Dashboard on your own! (Athletes, see the note below).

STOPS: If you have a STOP on your account, you will not be able to register. The Dashboard will inform you of any STOPs.

ATHLETES:To drop classes, submit an add/drop form signed by Nate Wright, the Faculty Athletic Representative, to the Registrar’s Office.

Non-Returning Students: If you decide not to attend The Master’s University in Spring 2020 please notify Admissions.

Taking an informed approach to registration: Your advisor will assist with registration, but it is your responsibility to ensure that you understand, and complete your graduation requirements, including your general education and major coursework requirements as stipulated in the Academic Catalog.


 Please allow the Registration Dashboard to guide you through Pre-Registration and Registration at The Master’s University.

PRE-REGISTRATION: This tab will take you to Traditional Undergraduate Program Pre-registration. Click, the “Pre-Register Now” button. Once pre-registration is complete, you will be brought back to the Dashboard.

  • Complete/verify the information on each page. On the “Sign & Confirm” page, sign your name using your Self-Service username and password. Once you select “Sign and Submit,” a “Congratulations” message will appear indicating that the process is complete. You will not be allowed to register until you have completed this step. 
  • Note:  the “Congratulations” message will remain once pre-registration is complete. If you go into pre-registration again and do not see the “Congratulations” message, this indicates that the process is not complete.

  1. Make sure that there are no stops on your account. All stops need to be removed before you can add or drop classes.
  2. Your major advisor must authorize you to register. If you are undeclared, please notify the Registrar's Office ( The Registrar is your advisor until you declare a major.
