Once the registration period opens for the upcoming semester(s) (see the Academic Calendar), you can enroll in your required courses. Follow the Registration Basics tutorial below. You may also wait to complete this step during your one-on-one advising meeting.
Always check in with your advisor and review/create your degree progression plan. This is an important step to ensure that you pick out the courses that will meet your degree requirements and personal/educational goals. As you progress, make any necessary updates to your progression plan, especially if your goals and enrollment plans change. You can use your Printable Advising Worksheet in the portal as a place to start.
Liberal Studies and General Studies Majors - If you are planning to transfer or have unique individualized academic and career goals, your Advising Worksheet in the KV Portal may not reflect your unique journey. You can create a more personalized plan with your advisor.
When the semester schedule becomes available, typically [2 weeks] before registration opens, review the schedule and select the optimal sections for you. Things to keep in mind:
If you have questions, always reach out to your advisor or the Advising Center. Both can provide guidance in the selection process.
Log into your KV Portal > Select the Academic Tab > then the My Registration item on your left-side menu > complete the Registration Agreement Form > and the select the appropriate term > and search to find the courses you picked out > then use the Add Courses option to enroll.
Note: Do you have a past due balance? Do you have any outstanding documents you need to submit, like immunization records? If so, you may have a hold on your account and will not be able to enroll until you have cleared these items. Contact the Advising Center to review and schedule the requisite steps to clear these holds.
It is always a good idea to review your Advising Worksheet to ensure that the courses you have selected are fitting in where you need them to. You can find your worksheet under the Academics tab in the portal by selecting My Registration (on the left), then "View All Details" in the middle of the page, then select "Printable Advising Worksheet."
Note: For those with individualized plans, the worksheet may not be completely accurate. Your advisor and the advising center can help review this with you.
Will you be paying for classes out of pocket or seeking financial assistance? When you get your semester bill, always review your financial plan to pay for the semester, and check in with the Financial Aid office to confirm your awards if necessary.
Don't forget books! You can find and purchase your textbooks through the Online Bookstore.
Be mindful of semester and course start & end dates. If you are in a flex start or short session course, mark them on your academic planner so that you are aware and be prepared for the first day of class.
It is also important to note add/drop and withdrawal dates. If you ever have a question, reach out to your advisor or the Advising Center for clarification and guidance.
