Advising And Registration

Registering for classes is a simple and straightforward process as long as you are prepared. Students may register for classes from their appointed time through 11:59 a.m. on Wednesday of the second week of classes. Registration closes the same Wednesday at noon precisely.

Students' assigned start time for registration may depend on their level (undergraduate or graduate), their degree program, and their earned semester credits plus credits in progress.

Students must register for and/or drop AVF and ESL courses at the registrar's office in L3Harris Commons.

Clear Holds

All academic, financial and administrative holds that prevent registration must be cleared through the respective office(s) before a student is given access to register. Holds may be viewed in PAWS.


All students must be advised prior to registration. How students are advised may depend on their student type (undergraduate or graduate), or modality (on-campus or online).

Select the category that applies to you for the correct advising information:

Main Campus Undergraduate Students

Find and contact your advisor.

Student advisors indicate approval of students' semester course plan by sending a copy of their advising worksheet to their Florida Tech email address. Students are permitted to register only for courses that are approved in writing.

Undergraduate students registering for more than 21 credit hours in the spring or fall semesters, or more than 13 credit hours in any of the summer terms, must have their registration forms signed by the dean of their college and by their advisor.

Main Campus Graduate Students

Student advisors indicate approval of students' semester course plan by signing the registration form. Students are permitted to register only for courses that are approved in writing by their faculty advisor.
