Lehigh University students are able to register online, using any web-enabled browser.
If you do not have access to a computer connected to the Internet, several public sites are available on campus, in addition to two computers in the Registrar's Office where students are able to register with guidance from the office staff.
To register online for any course that requires instructor/department approval, first contact the department offering the course to obtain department approval. Without prior online approval from the department, you will be denied enrollment for that course/section.
CLASS AVAILABILITY AND TIMES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Lehigh University reserves the right in its sole judgment to amend any policy or program described herein without prior notice to persons who might thereby by affected. At its sole options, the University may eliminate courses or sections, academic departments, or degree programs; change curricular offerings, graduation requirements, and regulations on standing of students, alter its class schedule and academic calendar; or make changes of any nature whenever in its judgment such changes are desirable for any reason. Lehigh University reserves the right to adjust a student’s schedule and time assignment of classes to meet university guidelines, balance sections, or addition or deletion of sections.
Students may drop/add any time using the Web service. Students are encouraged, strongly, to consult with their adviser during this period.
If you receive an error message, you are NOT REGISTERED for that particular course. Click here to reference the error and follow the appropriate action for each type.
There are three ways to find the class schedule:
Before you start:
No, you can register using the paper registration forms for both graduate and undergraduates. However, the form must be brought to the Registrar's Office. Do not mail or let your adviser submit it. You need to be present during the registration. Also, you must submit the form during your designated time period. Anyone who comes in prior to his or her designated time period will not be able to register. The Registrar's Office will assist you and register you when you hand in your form.
Yes, you must bring a signed registration form or drop/add slip to the Registrar's Office if you need to sign up for any of the following:
In the past you needed your adviser's signature to register. On the web, the Registration (Alternate) PIN replaces the signature. The web registration form will ask each student for the Registration (Alternate) PIN. The student can receive this Registration (Alternate) PIN from their adviser as authorization to register.
Remember: the Registration (Alternate) PIN is different each semester and does not take the place of the Personal Identification Number (PIN).
Go to the appropriate office prior to your registration period for the department to get approval. The office coordinator or chair person can process the registration override using the Banner system. Or you may fill out a drop/add form or registration card and have the department sign it. Then bring the form to the Registrar's Office for processing. (Remember to web register for all sections that do not require Dean or Department permission prior to hand delivering the card for the appropriate permission, otherwise you will give up your time priority for registration.)
It does make a difference when a student submits their registration form. If you intend to register by paper, do not submit your forms until after your registration period has begun. Registration forms should be hand-delivered to academic departments or the Registrar's Office. Do not mail them!

The waitlist serves two functions- it gives the department an indication of demand for a specific course for the semester, and for a student, it ensures their right to any open slots in a course (not necessarily a specific section) that may develop prior to the start of the semester. A waitlisted student will be given priority based on the order in which they were added to the waitlist. With that in mind, the sooner a student is added to the waitlist for a closed section, the greater the potential for that student to be added to that section or course. Slots may or may not become available. Also, getting on the waitlist does not ensure that a student will be added to the desired section.
When attempting to register for a wait listed section, the message “CLOSED - # WAITLISTED” or “OPEN - # WAITLISTED” will appear. This message is for information only. Important: To add yourself to the waitlist, you must select ‘wait list’ from the drop down menu, and you must "Submit Changes" to be added to the waitlist. If you do not "Submit Changes," you will not be added to the waitlist.
After registration the Registrar's Office works with the department and Dean's offices to review wait lists and move as many students as possible from waitlists into open and available sections.
The waitlist process is only designed for the original registration period. It will be disabled prior to drop/add and at that time students that seek to get into a closed class will need to petition the department or dean's office of the appropriate college. Course demand is established during registration.
Once a variable credit course is added to a student's registration, the correct number of credits can be assigned from the range that appears on the form, using the Change Class Options menu. Remember you must first ADD the section, and then correct the number of credits, using the Change Class Options menu.
The University reserves the right to cancel sections and move students into other sections to maintain enrollment limits and section balances. By the first day of class, all possible waitlisted students will be removed from the waitlist. Remember that after classes begin for a given semester if your account with the bursar is not cleared your registration can be cancelled.
Access to your class schedule will be withheld until the Bursar has cleared your account. If your account is not cleared by the 5th day of class, your registration (and section enrollments) will be canceled and the seats will be made available to other students.
Remember having a copy of your schedule is no longer proof that you have completed the registration process. Each student should print an up to date copy via the web, or stop by the Registrar's Office for a copy.
