How do I know what GenEd and Core Requirements I still need to fulfill?

What if classes I want are full?

If a class is full, find an alternative course to register for.  As of Spring 2012, Pacific Lutheran University no longer utilizes a wait list system.  If an opening occurs prior to the start of a term, a student may add a course at that time.

Do I need a code to register?

If you are a student with fewer than 60 earned credit hours, you need a Registration Access Code, available from your academic advisor. It is best to make an appointment early, rather than waiting until the last minute to schedule an appointment.
