Step One: Course Registration
- Asks you to complete a Community Values Agreement. This includes your agreement to respect Andrews' faith-based environment, to adopt a wholesome lifestyle, to abide by our residential policy, and to attend weekly out-of-class programs as part of our gathered community.
- Lists your major (if decided) and the name of your academic advisor.
- Asks you to list your emergency contact information as well as verify and update your home and e-mail addresses.
- Lists any holds that you have. A hold is an electronic barrier that prevents you from registering for classes until you have done what the hold requires. Be sure to take care of any holds before contacting your academic advisor for course registration. After July 15, academic advisors can only register you for classes once all holds are removed.
- Allows you and your advisor to select courses. Once your final transcript has arrived at the University, you may contact your academic advisor or department to begin the course registration process. If you do not complete this process before coming to campus, you will have an opportunity to do so with your advisor during Orientation Week. If you don't know who your advisor is, or if you wish to change your academic major, call Student Success at 269.471.6205 or check your preVue page.
Step Two: Financial Plan (available beginning July 15)
- Asks you to sign a responsibility statement.
- Asks for insurance information. You are required to have health insurance as an Andrews student if you are enrolled for four or more credits. International students are required to have insurance for themselves and their families no matter how many credits are taken. You may enter a waiver if you have insurance coverage that is valid in Michigan. Otherwise, you are required to purchase insurance through Andrews.
- Asks for the number of credit hours for which you expect to register.
- Asks you to set your Bookstore and ITS Store spending limits, select a meal plan, and indicate your place of residence (only the residence hall option will be available unless you are 22 years of age or older, or have received approval to live with your parents in the community from the Student Life Office.)
- Calculates your financial plan and give you the opportunity to pay online.
- Having a financial plan in place is essential to your registration process. You can financially clear as early as July 15. The sooner, the better. Your first payment must be receipted by August 15. Financial clearance allows you to charge at the University Bookstore and at Dining Services, as well as to have access to James White Library book loans and other University services.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please complete your financial clearance before the August 15 deadline. Any classes for which you have registered will be dropped if financial clearance is not complete by August 15. If you are unable to meet this deadline, log onto Registration Central between August 11 at 12:01 a.m. and August 15 at 9:00 p.m., and you will be able to electronically confirm your plans to enroll. You will then have until August 25 to complete financial clearance before your classes are dropped. Students will not be allowed to move into the residence halls until they are financially cleared.
Attention International Students! Registration Central includes an additional step that provides specific information just for you.
