3.You need at least the Term you plan to register for and the Subject you want to take classes in. If you know that you only want classes online, at Newark Campus, or at the Main Campus in Fremont please select the option you want from the Location menu. The more information you enter here, the fewer results will come up in your search. ***If you receive a No Classes Meeting the Search Criteria error message when you hit submit, try removing some of the additional information you entered.

5.Make sure to click the link in the Section and Book Information column for the classes you want to register. That will display the full course times, including any labs, prerequisites, corequisites, advisories, and information about transferring the class.

6.After you have selected all courses you want to register by clicking the Select option to the left of each class, hit the Submit option at the bottom of the page. This will take you to the Register and Drop Sections page. Your class selections will be displayed under Preferred Sections. You do not need to take any other action on this screen. Just click OK at the bottom. Your class selections will be saved here.

7.When you are able to register, log in to WebAdvisor  and go directly to Register and Drop Sections. You should see your class selections listed there. If you need assistance with the additional registration process, please start with Step 7 in the Search and Register Sections instructions below.


If you have already selected classes from the printed class schedule or through the Search for Sections option, you can use Express Registration.
1.To start, you need the 6 digit synonym number for your class. These change every semester, so make sure you are using the most recent schedule. That is the number in parentheses to the right of the subject, course, and section number in the online class listing:

Or listed with the section, instructor, days, and times for each class in the print schedule.

2.Go to Register for Sections:

3.Enter the synonym numbers for the courses you would like to register. Do not enter the Subject, Course Number, Section Number, or Term.

4.To register for classes, you will choose Register from the Action dropdown menu to the left of each course. Do not use the Action For All option at the top. If a class is full, you can choose Waitlist from the Action dropdown menu, or if you decide not to register a course, you can select Remove from List to take the class out of your preferred sections.

If you are registering during the late add period (on or after the first day of class depending on the course length), you need to have an add code to enter on this screen. You can get an add code from your instructor. Add codes only work if there are open seats in the class and registration has not closed for the term
5.When you have chosen your action for each listed course, click Submit. Any issues with your registration will be displayed in red text at the top. Please read any error message carefully so that you are able to resolve it and complete your registration.
If registration is successful, you will receive a notice at the top that the classes are registered and that payment is now due. You should also notice the status for each course will be listed as Registered, and the classes will show under the Registered Sections header in the Register and Drop Sections page.
6.Select OK to go back to the Students menu in WebAdvisor. You can check your registration at the My Class Schedule link in the WebAdvisor Students menu. You can find it on the right under the Academic Profile header.

Once you choose that option, select the term you want to view to see your classes.

There is a link provided at the bottom of the My Class Schedule page to view textbooks and class supplies. If you click that link, you will be routed to the Ohlone Bookstore page where information on books and supplies is listed, if your instructor makes that information available prior to the start of term.

Do not use the Register and Drop Sections page to check your enrollment. It is very easy to accidentally drop or withdraw a class through that page, and once you drop or withdraw a course from your registration, you may not be able to register for it again.
7.Make payment. You can make a payment for your registration through the Pay on My Account option in the Students menu. You will find it on the left under the Financial Information header.

After you select Pay on My Account, choose your method of payment from the list provided and follow the prompts to complete payment.
If you choose Ok, you will be directed back to the Students menu instead.

You can also make payment in person at the Cashier's Office  on the Fremont campus.
