Registration dates are listed on the available academic calendars,. Keep in mind that you should talk to your advisor prior to registration, and that until you complete a POS (Program of Study) you MUST speak to your advisor for an access code that allows you to register.
Be sure to register as early as possible as classes fill quickly—you don't have to pay until classes begin.
All students need two things to register:
a User ID and a PIN.
Some students will also need a Registration Access Code (sometimes known as an "alternate PIN").
The User ID:
is your student ID from your ID card. This is an "A" followed by an 8-digit number.
is a six-digit number. If you have never changed it, it should be either the last six digits of your SSN or your birth date in mmddyy format. No one in the Art Department has any way of looking up or changing your PIN; the system does not allow us to do so. If you do not know your PIN, try one of the suggestions above. If that does not work, contact Charger Central.
Once you have these two things, log in to Banner at http://register.uah.edu/. Click on "Enter Banner Self Service," then "Enter Secure Area." Fill in the blanks and click "Login".
Registration Access Code
When you try to register for classes, the system may ask for your "Registration Access Code." Your Registration Access Code will change every semester until you complete your Program of Study (POS).
Liberal Arts students with a POS should not need a Registration Access Code. If you have tried to register and the system requested your Registration Access Code, see Frank Bell, Liberal Arts Advisor, in Morton Hall 216. If Mr. Bell is unavailable, you may see Dr. Lillian Joyce, Art Department Chair, in 160-E Wilson Hall.
If Charger Central has told you that you need a Registration Access Code, do not believe them without checking. Go ahead and try to register for your classes. If Banner then says you need a Registration Access Code, you can believe that.
If you have a faculty advisor and have signed a POS, go to the chair for your code, and so that we can find out the status of your POS.
Please do not ask Frank Bell or Dr. Joyce to look it up unless Banner has requested it this semester. The process of looking up Registration Access Codes is time-consuming.
You have been sent an email with the name and office hours of your assigned art faculty advisor. Please consult with that professor if you need help deciding what classes to take.
