When and where can I register?
Registration opens each term based on the dates published in the Academic Calendar. Your specific registration Time Ticket (day/time registration opens) is based on earned hours plus the hours you are currently enrolled in.
All registration is done in the iROAR student system.
What should I do prior to registration?
- Schedule an appointment with your advisor. All continuing undergraduate students and former students returning are required to see an advisor. At the close of the advising session, your advisor will give you your registration PIN—registration PINs are required in order to access iROAR registration. Graduate students who wish to enroll in the upcoming fall or spring semester are not required to consult their advisors.
- Prepare for your meeting with your advisor by checking your Degree Works audit and making a list of classes you wish to take. If you have questions about your Degree Works audit, submit your questions or concerns via the online Degree Works Inquiry.
- Check for any holds on your account in iROAR > Student Records. Contact the office issuing the hold for resolution.
- Plan your classes in the iROAR registration planner.
What is a registration PIN?
Undergraduates must enter a PIN to access registration. Meet with your advisor as early as possible to plan your schedule and receive your registration PIN—no other person is authorized to issue your PIN. You will not be able to register in iROAR without your PIN. Prepare a list of alternate courses before you begin registering.
Only undergraduate students are required to enter a PIN in order to register for classes. If you plan to enroll in off-campus undergraduate classes, call your advisor or major department in order to receive your PIN.
You will be required to enter your PIN each time you access the iROAR registration page until a registration attempt has been made. Once a registration attempt has been made—even if the attempt is unsuccessful—you will no longer be required to enter your PIN.
Why do I have to prove my citizenship and how do I do that?
All new students must present proof of their legal presence in the state; it is the law in South Carolina. Additional legal presence details, including acceptable documents, can be found in the FAQ.
Why do I get registration errors in iROAR?
Errors pop up in iROAR if you do not meet the requirements or restrictions set for a particular course. See iROAR errors and required overrides in the Registration Checklist.
How do I resolve registration errors?
Most errors require an override. Override requests should be made to the Instructor or the Registration Coordinator for the course.
How do I resolve a registration hold on my account?
Holds on your account may prevent registration. Check for any registration holds in iROAR: Students ⟩ Student Records ⟩ View Holds. The "Processes Affected" column indicates whether registration is impacted. To resolve holds, you must contact the department that issued the hold. Go to the Registration Checklist ⟩ Holds to look up Contacts for Holds.
What if I need to register for a course but it is closed?
For information on Waitlisting or Requesting a Closed Course, please see Closed Courses.
How many credit hours can I take each term?
Allowable maximum credit hours are enforced in iROAR registration.
Fall and Spring Credit Hour Limits
Undergraduate students are initially limited to registration in 19 credit hours—16 for students on probation. The day before classes begin, credit hours are automatically increased to 21 for students in good standing. For information on credit increase exceptions and student classification, please refer to Credit Hours on the Registration Checklist.
Summer Credit Hours
Undergraduate students may register for a total of 19 credits during the summer session. Exceptions to these credit hour limits must be approved by the student's advisor—for more information please refer to Credit Hours on the Registration Checklist.
I'm a former student returning to Clemson. What should I do?
Students who missed a major term (spring or fall) or withdrew during the term are considered former students. To be able to register for the upcoming semester, you must complete the Former Student Returning application
Visit Former Students Returning for additional information as well as the form and form deadlines.
When and how do I pay my tuition charges?
Payment is due by the deadline published by Student Financial Services or you may incur a $150 late fee and schedule cancellation—you are responsible for rebuilding your schedule in iROAR. You are not guaranteed re-enrollment in any of your dropped classes. Billing and payment information is published by Student Financial Services. They can assist you with any questions or concerns.
What is a Registration Plan?
The registration plan allows students to create up to two planned schedules of classes prior to the start of registration. Creating a plan is no guarantee of gaining a seat in a class and does not mean a student is registered for a planned class.
How do I make a plan?
See Training Materials.
Can my advisor see my plan?
Yes. They can also approve your plan and/or create a plan for you.
Can I register using my plan?
Yes, you can also register using your advisor's plan.
Why are courses showing in my plan that aren't being offered this term?
The plan ahead tool pulls information from the course catalog, showing all courses and their catalog restrictions, regardless of whether they are being offered in a future term or not. Only the ‘Browse Courses' and ‘Registration’ features pull information from Banner and will show current information for a specific term.
