Follow your School's instructions for advisement and make an appointment with your adviser, if necessary. It is important to discuss your academic plans with an adviser, to get feedback on your choices and to make sure you are on track for your degree requirements. If you have a declared major and don't know the name of your faculty adviser, contact your major department office. If you are undeclared, you are welcome to meet with an adviser in the Office of Academic Advisement in 101 Memorial Hall.
For each semester you are registering online, obtain an Alternate PIN from your academic adviser, if necessary. We are pleased to announce that it is no longer mandatory for upper-class students in good academic standing to have an Alternate PIN when registering. All freshmen and non pre-advised graduate students must have obtained an Alternate PIN from their adviser prior to logging in. Non-matriculated graduate students must register in person or by mail.
Be sure to check for new class offerings and prerequisites prior to beginning Web registration. As always, please call the Student Administrative Complex at (516) 463-8000 (Option #2) for assistance during normal business hours, if you have any questions or problems.
As of January 1, 2003, the University has assigned each member of the Hofstra Community a generated ID (700#). This initiative will help ensure your privacy and security while allowing the University to maintain up-to-date records.
Your original PIN is your date of birth in the University's database. If you have not done so already, it is highly recommended that you change your PIN as soon as possible. For security reasons, you should not give your PIN to anyone.
Your Network ID and password are the same as your e-mail username and password. If you are unsure of your Network ID, Student ID (700#), PIN or password, contact Student Computing Services at (516) 463-7777.
You will obtain an Alternate PIN from your academic advisor. A new Alternate PIN is required for each semester for which you are registering online (if necessary).
It's a new registration that allows you to place yourself on a waitlist for some closed courses. Please note that this option will not be available for all closed classes. It is at the discretion of the academic department to decide whether or not they will offer a waitlist option.
On the "Look-Up Classes to add" screen of the Hofstra Online system, there will be a number listed under the "WL Cap" column. This will indicate how many waitlist spaces there are in total and the "WL Rem" column will tell you how many spaces are currently available.
If the course you want is closed and does have a waitlist option available, please follow these instructions: 1. Note the CRN#. (It's the five digit number located to the left of the subject and course information.) 2. Go to the "Add/Drop Classes " page and enter the CRN# in the "Add Classes Worksheet". Click the Submit Changes button. 3. The class will first come up with an error message of "CLOSED - WAITLISTED". The Action box is defaulted to "Waitlist". Click the Submit Changes button.
The academic department will contact you via your pride email account**. At that time, you will have 24 hours to process your registration into the class. The steps are listed below.
You can search for open classes by following the search for classes' procedure. In some instances, courses are set up by departments as 'closed'. If there are no open sections of a course, you must follow the University's closed class procedure as described in the Schedule of Classes. Please note: A preprinted 'C' next to a course code indicates that the course has been set up as 'closed' by the department.
With "Look Up Classes to Add" from the Registration Menu or the "Class Search" button on the Add/Drop Classes page, you will be able to look up additional classes and see up-to-the-minute information about each class. When searching for classes, you must fill in the subject line or you will be returned to the same search page. You may search for more than one subject at a time by holding down the "Shift" key on your keyboard and clicking on a second selection. To get the most results possible when searching for classes, enter in only basic information on the search page. To narrow the search to fewer results, enter in more information. Be careful not to be too specific or the search may be unsuccessful.
If you are unable to register during your assigned registration day and time, go to the "Check your Registration Status" page from the Registration Menu to find out why. If you have a hold on your registration, click on the "View Holds" link located at the bottom of the page. You will need to visit the office of the department that originated the hold.
Examples of holds are: a Health Center hold, a graduate non-matriculation hold, an arrears hold, an advisement hold, and an admissions hold. All of these holds will prevent a student from registering using the Hofstra Online Information System.
There are two ways to view your schedule. * View your Student Schedule by day and time. * View your Student Detail Schedule: a schedule with detailed information, including the instructor.
If you have any questions regarding the system, please contact the staff in Academic Records/Registrar at (516) 463-8000, Option 2. We are anxious to assist you with any questions that you may have regarding the Hofstra Online Information System.
