Registering for classes in MyRED is an easy process once you understand the steps. Before starting the registration process log into MyRED using your NUID and password that you set up through the TrueYou system.
Step 1 – Navigate to the enrollment page
To access the Add Classes page, click on Student Center...
Step 2 – Select a registration term
Step 3 – Add a class or classes to your enrollment shopping cart
You add classes by searching and selecting classes from the integrated class schedule. To access the class schedule, click the Search button:
You must enter at least two search criteria to find a class. We recommend that you specify a Course Subject (e.g. Mathematics, Accounting, etc.) and a Course Career (e.g. Undergraduate or Graduate) at a minimum. If you know the course number you want, enter that in the Course Number box. Additional search criteria can be accessed by clicking on the Additional Search Criteria link.
Once you have entered your search criteria click the Search button. You will be presented with a list of all classes that meet your criteria.
Important Tip – If you do too wide of a search you can sit and wait for quite some time for the system to bring up a list of classes. The more specific the criteria you enter, the faster your search results will appear.
The list of classes will look like this:
All of the sections of each class are grouped together under the class title.
Select the class that you want to add to your shopping cart by clicking on the Select button listed with that section.
If the course you selected requires enrollment in an associated lab or recitation section of the same class, you will be directed to a list of “related” class sections to choose from. You will need to select a recitation and/or lab section to continue with the registration process.
Important Tip – If you know that a class requires a related class section, note what recitation or lab that you want before the system brings you to this page. Planning ahead will make the selection process much easier and faster.
Once you make your choice click on the Next button. That will bring you to the Enrollment Preferences page.
The Enrollment Preferences that can be selected are:
- Grading option (if it is a student grade option class)
- Units (for variable credit hour classes)
- Permission Number entry (see below)
Entering Units for variable credit hour classes:
For variable credit hour classes, the number of units will default to the minimum number of credit hours that can be taken for that course. If you intend to take more than the minimum number of credit hours allowed for the course, you must remember to manually adjust this before adding it to your shopping cart.
On the diagram below, you will see an example of a variable credit hour course with a drop-down box next to "Units". This is where you can indicate how many hours you would like to enroll in.
What are Permission Numbers?
Some classes require department permission to enter. This permission is granted through a unique 4-6 digit randomly generated permission code.
Permission numbers can only be used once and the system records when a permission code is used. If the class you are trying to add to your shopping cart requires permission, enter the 4-6 digit number that you obtained from the department, advisor or instructor.
Permission codes cannot be used after Late Registration. If permission is not required, you can ignore this.
Finally, click on the Next button to return to your shopping cart. The class you selected should now be in your shopping cart. If you make a mistake and want to remove a class from the shopping cart, click the garbage can icon next to the class.
Step 4 – Submit your Shopping Cart to the Enrollment Process
Adding a class to your shopping cart does not reserve your spot in that class and does not mean you are registered in the class. You can leave classes in your enrollment cart as long as you want, but you are not actually registered in them until you complete the registration process.
Important Tip - Some Lecture/Lab combinations are set up as independent class offerings with each carrying credit hours (e.g. BIOS 101/101L). In these situations you will need to select the lecture and lab sections independently of each other and have them both in your shopping cart before submitting them to the system for processing.
To begin the actual registration process click on the Proceed to Step 2 of 3 button located beneath your shopping cart. This will take you to the registration confirmation page.
Click on the Finish Enrolling button to submit your shopping cart to the system for processing. Once the process has been completed the system will confirm whether you were successful in registering for classes in your shopping cart. If you have multiple classes in your shopping cart the system will confirm the status of each class. Carefully review any error messages you receive and take action to resolve the errors.
Classes that fail the enrollment process will remain in your shopping cart until you either delete them or successfully complete the enrollment process. If you successfully enroll in a class it will be deleted from your shopping cart and added to your list of enrolled classes for the term.
To Drop a Class
Click on the Drop tab that appears on top of the enrollment pages.
You may be asked to select a term if multiple terms are available for add/drop transactions. If you have already selected a term under the Add tab, that same term will be selected by default for the Drop tab.
You will then be presented with the list of classes that you are currently enrolled in for the term. Just select the class or classes that you wish to drop by checking the selection box next to each class.
NOTE: For classes with associated recitations or labs, only the lecture may be selected. When you drop the lecture, the associated recitation or lab will be dropped at the same time.
After you click on the Drop Selected Classes button you will be asked to confirm your selection.
If everything is correct then click on the Finish Dropping button to submit your request to the system for processing. Once the drop process is complete the system will confirm whether your drop request was completed successfully.
