Registering in courses from a saved schedule

This function will not be available in Workday Student until your registration appointment opens.

About course registration in Workday

There are 2 primary ways you can register for courses in Workday: 

  1. Create a saved schedule and register all your courses at once.
  2. Register for individual courses one at a time. 

Important information about course registration

You must register for each term separately.

If you are taking a prerequisite course required for a Term 2 course during Term 1, you must successfully register for it first before you can register for the Term 2 course. Any alerts for Term 2 registration will be updated once you have registered for the prerequisite course in Term 1.

Before registering in courses

If you choose to register all your courses using a saved schedule, make sure to edit your saved schedule and resolve alerts, conflicts, and holds on your record before registration opens. This can help to prevent issues during your registration process.

  1. Go to your saved schedules. If you’re not sure how to find it, follow this tutorial.
  2. On the “View My Saved Schedules” page, you’ll find a summary of the course sections you have added under each saved schedule in table format.
  3. Review the saved schedule to make sure you have selected the correct course section(s).
  4. Check that you’ve resolved all the alerts, if applicable. For help on managing saved schedule alerts, follow this tutorial.

How to register from a saved schedule

First, review your saved schedule for Term 1

Follow the steps above to find, review, and confirm the saved schedule you want to register.

Next, register your saved schedule 

  1. Under your saved schedule table summary, click the orange “Start Registration” button on the left. The button will only appear when registration opens for you.
  2. You’ll be brought to a new page with the heading, “Start Registration from Saved Schedule”. Here, you can make any last-minute changes or resolve course conflicts before registering. If you have unresolved course conflicts, you will not be registered in the conflicting courses. 
  3. Once you are ready, click the orange “Register” button at the lower left corner of the page. Your registration will be processed in Workday.

Review your registrations

After you complete your registration, a registration summary will appear on the screen in a table format. The summary is divided into 3 sections:

  1. Unsuccessful registrations
  2. Waitlisted registrations
  3. Successful registrations
