First Year Preregistration

First-Year Student Preregistration Information

Preregistration for blocks 3-4 for all first-year students will be September 23rd - October 4th, 2019.

All first-year students will be preregistering for their Blocks 3 & 4 and will also be required to submit a draft of their Spring Semester choices for Blocks 5 thru 8. Students have 20 points to distribute on Blocks 3 & 4 and 40 points to distribute on Blocks 5 thru 8 (points do not cross-over semesters).

Spring drafts and points will be SAVED to be processed in Block 3 with the returning students’ drafts and points and will require a Spring Passcode; this will become available to your Advisor tab in SSB when spring preregistration is opened in Block 3.

Easy Steps for Preregistration

  • Look at the course offerings for blocks 3 thru 8 in Class Schedule/Banner SSB. See what courses have reserved spots for first-years, courses that have openings available now, or have short waitlists.
  • Write down a few courses of particular interest to take with you to your faculty advising meeting. You can use this worksheet or work in SSB to formulate a draft.  See SSB Preregistration Program Instructions for more information.
  • Make an appointment with your faculty advisor. Don’t forget to ask for your Preregistration PASSCODE before you leave!
  • Login to your Banner SSB. Click Preregistration. Enter the CRN for each block. Add Course. Enter your Grading Track and Points. Save Changes. Enter your Student Passcode. Submit Preregistration.
  • Done!

Preregistration Process Status

  • Within the Preregistration Choices section, please note the status of your Preregistration by color:
  • Red = Incomplete Status.
  • Blue = it’s ready to submit with your preregistration passcode.
  • Green = complete status.


If you decide to make changes after you’ve submitted, you may login again and make changes.  Once submitted, your faculty advisor will be notified when any additions or changes you’ve made.

Your FYE will display on your preregistration but you will be blocked from making any changes to these.

Adjunct registration is allowed in Preregistration. Keep in mind, it is not recommended to place any points on an adjunct course.

You must obtain your Preregistration PASSCODE from your declared faculty advisor (listed above) to complete and submit your preregistration selections.  Make your appointment with your faculty advisor early!!  Each student is assigned a Preregistration PASSCODE which must be given to you by your faculty advisor; only your faculty advisor has access to your Preregistration PASSCODE.

We always recommend you either complete the worksheet and take this with you to your advising session or make a screenshot of your preregistration draft from Banner SSB and send this to your faculty advisor before your meeting.  Once you receive your schedule results, on Oct. 9th, schedule changes can be made in Banner SSB using the Drop/Add Program on your Student Menu.

More detailed instructions and points needed for first-year preregistration last year can be found in the Preregistration sections on the Registrar’s Office webpage or you can CONTROL/CLICK on the following links:

All changes to your schedule can be made in SSB beginning on October 9th , or as soon as schedule results are available to view in SSB.
