KNOW WHEN TO REGISTER FOR CLASS
If you are admitted to BGSU, have a valid BGSU email account and no holds on your account, you may register for classes according to the schedules outlined below. You can register your classes in your MyBGSU account. Learn more about this process in the Register for Classes section on this web page.
The calendars below are the dates when the system will open based on student classification. You can locate additional calendars on our Academic Calendars web page.
- The system will open at 7 a.m. each day.
- You can find your exact registration date at MyBGSU > Student Center > Classes & Registration > Enrollment Dates
Authorized Student | Authorized students are part of specific groups that are given early access to registration. This includes groups like military and Honors College students. If you have not been told you are an authorized student, you will select classes on the traditional day assigned to your class standing.
CHECK YOUR HOLDS
If you have a hold on your account, you will not be able to register for classes.
If you are a first year student, you will be REQUIRED to meet with your academic advisor prior to registering your classes. Please review the Advising section on this web page to learn more about this process prior to your class registration date.
MEET WITH YOUR ADVISOR
We highly recommend that you meet with an advisor, no matter your class standing, prior to scheduling your classes. However, it is important for you to know that you are responsible for scheduling your classes. Meeting with an advisor does not mean your classes have been scheduled. Your advisor will go over any questions you have, your class options and help you understand what courses are required for graduation, but they will not schedule your classes for you. Please visit the Academic Advising web pages listed below to learn more about advising and to book your appointment.
PREPARE YOUR CLASS SCHEDULE
BGSU FALL 2021 COURSE SCHEDULE
The BGSU Fall 2021 Course Schedule is now open! Courses may continue to be added and/or adjusted to address student demand and accommodate COVID-19 health and safety requirements. From March 3-28, you will only be able to search the course offerings. Starting on March 29, course enrollment will begin based on class standing. Please see the fall enrollment schedule listed on this page to find when the system will open for you.
You will be able to start reviewing class options about about a month prior to the registration system opening. This is the time to start looking at your options and start building your schedule. We recommend doing this prior to meeting with your advisor and at the latest, prior to your registration day. Going through this process will help you think of questions when meeting with your advisor and can help speed up your registration process when the system opens for you.
Please note: Preparing a shopping cart prior to registration opening does not guarantee there will be an opening in the class when you are able to register.
REGISTER FOR CLASSES
Meeting with your advisor and building your class shopping cart does not mean your classes have been registered. You must complete the following steps to officially enroll in your classes.
- The registration process will open up for you on your official class registration day. Upperclassmen will gain access to the system earlier.
- Regardless of the date, if you have a hold on your account, you will NOT be able to register for classes.
