Registration Information

Check for upcoming registration dates on the current academic calendar.

Reminders and helpful hints:

  • Check your registration window online at the Minnesota State Student eServices page. 
  • If required, contact your advisor for your access code. You do not have to wait until your window opens to enter your access code or set up your “Wish List.”
  • Check your holds. Students can check their holds on the Student eServices Dashboard.
  • If you received an email regarding necessary immunizations from Health Services (507.457.5160), please contact them as soon as possible. Registration will be blocked for students not meeting State of Minnesota immunization requirements.
  • Save time by setting up your registration "Wish List" ahead of time. Make sure to have alternatives in case courses are full.
  • During the initial week of registration, course load is limited to 16 credits. This restriction will be lifted and the 19-credit limit restored at 4pm on the Friday of registration week.
