Spring 2025 Course Registration UNDER CONSTRUCTION

On Wednesday, October 23, after 12pm, students will be able to view their Registration Status (aka Time Ticket) on HomerConnect. 

Registration Status lets students know what day and time they can begin to register for classes. To ensure the most accurate time ticket, students should complete the following prior to Monday, March 11:

  • Confirm all transfer credits have been awarded, including but not limited to, AP, IB and CLEP.
  • Complete any change of majors/minors/concentrations via IC workflow.Registration status/Time Ticket assignment is based on credits earned; in-progress spring credits ARE NOT considered for the purposes of Time Ticket assignment.  

To check your credits earned: on your Student Profile page in HomerConnect, view Overall Hours.  

DegreeWorks includes the classes you are currently taking in credits applied, this is NOT what time ticketing is based on. 

When using your HomerConnect Profile page, ensure Fall 2024 term is selected in the upper left corner. To find your time ticket: click on Registration Notices in the upper right corner. You can also check holds here. Not all holds block registration; please be sure to look at Processes Affected. Please reach out to the originator of the hold to resolve the issue. 

Once Fall registration begins, Prerequisite Checking and Course Restrictions WILL include review of your in-progress Spring courses. 

The IC Workflow override system opens with your time ticket (not before). You cannot submit an override until your time ticket opens. 

NO option in the override system when a class is full:

There is NO option in the override system when a class is full; the only option for a full class is to go on waitlist (if waitlist seats are available).  

You can also speak to your advisor about registering for a different degree requirement if possible.
