After your first semester, you can register for classes online. To officially enroll in classes each semester, you are required to register for your schedule well in advance.

Normally, you should plan to take between 12 and 17 semester hours (3-5 courses) during the fall and/or spring terms. Students should average 15.5 credits per term to graduate in 8 semesters. To prepare for registration, we suggest that you meet with an academic advisor at least once each semester.

Graduate students: To register for classes, you can either contact your advisor, email studentsuccess@calvin.edu or self-register.

See your advisor

Meet with your advisor before registering to compile a list of course sections that you may take. Your advisor should verify that you have been advised through Workday (for fall 2022 registration).

Know your registration time

To find your registration time, view your registration apppointment in Workday (Learn how.)

Please note: registration for summer 2022 must be done through the Plan & Register page in the Student Planning section of Self-Service. If you're registering for summer 2022, use that page to find your registration time. All other registration is done through Workday, as noted above.

Sign up for your planned classes as soon as Calvin's registration schedule allows. Upcoming registration availability dates are posted below.

Registering for off-campus programs
