Prepare Your Schedule with Class Search

You will be able to start reviewing class options about a month prior to the registration system opening. This is the time to start looking at your options and building your schedule. We recommend doing this prior to meeting with your Academic Advisor and Planner 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. 

1. Log in and go to: MyBGSU > Student Center > Classes & Registration
2. Click 'Class Search' in the left navigation menu.
3. Click 'Term' (Fall, Spring, Summer) then click the 'Continue' button.
4. Start the search process by clicking the 'Search' button.
5. On the next screen you will see many different options to modify and narrow your search. Use this page to find the classes you are interested in. You can also narrow your search based on how the class will be taught, called instruction mode.

6. Once you have identified a class you want to enroll in, click the 'Select' button and then click the 'Next' button. – Doing this adds the course to your shopping cart.
7. Repeat this process until all the classes you want to take are selected and in your shopping cart.

Now you are all set until it's your official time to register for classes.

Placing these classes in your cart does not guarantee your enrollment. There is still a chance a class may fill up by the time it's your turn to register. Please review the class registration step of the registration checklist for more information about this process.
