Registration Procedures

Please note that the registration procedures for psychology courses have changed. FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS TO REGISTER FOR ALL PSYCHOLOGY 300- AND 400- LEVEL COURSES FOR THE SPRING 2017 SEMESTER.

Departmental approval is required for all students (majors or non-majors) planning to register for 300- or 400-level courses in Psychology. Departmental approval for 100- or 200-level courses in Psychology is NOT needed.

Students in the Online Psychology B.A. program will have priority for online courses until November 21st. After that date, online courses will be open to all students.

In order to receive approval to register for psychology courses, students should:

  1. SUBMIT A PSYCHOLOGY SPRING REGISTRATION FORM by clicking on this link: https://uofi.uis.edu/fb/sec/2069697. You can submit your form any time after November 4th, 2016. You will use this form to request approval to register for any 300- and 400-level psychology classes. Remember to click “Submit Form” after you have entered your information.
  2. Please note that if you are in the Online Psychology B.A. program, you will follow different registration procedures. Contact Robin Vansacik at rvans3@uis.edu for those instructions.
  3. NO phone calls, email requests, or walk-in requests for course approvals are allowed. This policy is to ensure that requests for approval are granted in the order received.
  4. Do NOT submit duplicate forms. If you need to make a change to your original request, you may do so by sending an email to psy@uis.edu. Please note in the subject line: Spring Course Change.
  5. Please make note of your Time Ticket for registration. You can view the exact day and time that you are able to register for classes by logging into Student Self-Service (available at uis.edu/registration). Click the “Register Now!” link and follow the directions given.
  6. You will be given permission to register for Psychology courses based on your time ticket and then in the order that requests are received. You will NOT be given permission to register for courses until after the designated time on your time ticket. Students who do not register on their designated time ticket date can register after their designated dates.
  7. Once you have submitted your request, you will receive a confirmation email within 2-3 days of your time ticket date with your course approvals from psy@uis.edu. After you receive your confirmation email, you will then have 24 hours to complete registration for your Psychology courses.

Following these guidelines will allow your registration experience to progress as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Please direct any questions that you may have to the psychology department office support specialist at psy@uis.edu or the psychology department academic advisor at rvans3@uis.edu.
