Transfer Student Office - FAQ's

What is CRN?

 

The CRN is the number that is assigned to each course. That is how the system knows WHAT CLASS and SECTION it is, WHO is teaching it, WHEN it is being taught, WHERE the class is being held, and HOW MANY credit hours the course is worth.

 

 

What if I don't know the CRN when I am registering?

 

It is okay not to know the CRN. You can find the CRN using the LOOK UP CLASSES TO ADDlink found in the Registration Menu in Banner. After you have selected the term, highlight the type of class it is (e.g. English, Mathematics, Biology) and type the course number in the box underneath, if you know it. If there are classes being offered, they will show up when you click on the CLASS SEARCH button.

 

If you have no holds on your records and you are eligible to register, you will see a box next the CRN. Click inside the box next to the class for which you wish to register and go to the bottom of the page and click on the REGISTER button. You will then be taken to the ADD/DROP page. You should see the class there, listing you as registered. If it is not, scroll down the page and see what the error is. There may be a pre-requisite you need, or there could be a time conflict! IF YOU HAVE A HOLD ON YOUR RECORD YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REGISTER UNTIL THE HOLD IS REMOVED! See your academic advisor for assistance in removing holds.
