Registration for classes for the Spring 2018 semester is still open. If you are having difficulties registering for classes, here are some factors that may prevent you from registering:

  • If you have not yet been advised by your academic adviser, you cannot register for classes. In order to register for classes, you must enter your RAN number, which you receive during your advisement appointment.
  • If you have been to advisement and do not know what your RAN number is, RAN numbers are now located on your My Georgia Southern account under ‘Lookup RAN’ under the ‘Registration Information’ tab
  • You are also not able to register for classes if you have any holds on your account. A hold is any financial obligation that you have not met.
  • Holds can be anything from unpaid parking tickets, housing damages fees, Health Services’ fees, remaining tuition or anything of that nature.

“…Some people find out they have holds on their accounts and can’t register,” Rochelle Cote, administration assistant the Office of Registrar, said.

You can pay any holds either online through WINGS, or you can pay them with cash at the Cashier’s Office located in Deal Hall on Sweetheart Circle.

Deal Hall does not accept credit or debit cards. They accept cash, checks and money orders only.

If you do not register for classes by the Dec. 8 deadline, registration will open again from Dec. 29 to Jan. 3 and from Jan. 6 to Jan. 11 for all students.
