How to Register for Classes
Search/Register for Sections
Log onto MySuffolk > Curriculum/Registration Tab > Search and Register to search for available courses.
Law School terms: FL for fall and SL for Spring. Use this process when you are looking for a specific course.
Enter the synonym number (5 digit number assigned to each course posted on the elective list as SYN) and term 15/FL Fall 2015 Law.
When you have chosen all of your planned course selections, click SUBMIT. A new screen ‘Register and Drop’ will appear. On your assigned registration day go to the ‘Register and Drop’ screen to officially register for courses by selecting RG in the drop down menu.
Please note: Any number of courses may be added to the ‘Register and Drop’ screen, however, course conflicts, prerequisites, and class availability will only be checked on your assigned registration day when you select RG-Register for each course and submit.
Register/Drop Course Sections
The first column to the left of your course selections is an action drop-down box. The actions that you are allowed to take for each course are ‘Register,’ ‘Waitlist,’ or ‘Remove from List.’ Although ‘Register,’ ‘Pass/Fail’ and ‘Audit’ are listed in the action drop-down box they cannot be used when registering for Law School courses. Using ‘Register,’ ‘Pass/Fail’ option or ‘Audit’ options will not be accepted and will force you to change your option to ‘Register,’ ‘Waitlist,’ or ‘Remove from List’ on the Preferred Sections/Register screen.
You can select an action for all of your Preferred Sections or individually. The registration results page will appear. If your course registration was successful the status column will say “Registered for this section.” If your course registration was unsuccessful, the status column will say “Unsuccessful registration” and the reason the registration was unsuccessful will display at the top of the screen.
Why Registration Failed?
Registrations may fail because prerequisites are not met, a course is closed, the course is restricted, or there is a time conflict. If a course is closed and you would like to place yourself on the waitlist, click on the menu option labeled ‘Register & Drop.’ Your preferred course list will appear at the top of the screen with the number of seats still available. The courses you have registered are listed at the bottom of the screen.
Add To and Manage My Waitlist
Any student who is closed out of a course(s) and is waitlisted for the course(s) will be notified by email, as space becomes available. Notification of space availability will be by email only to your suffolk.edu email address. Students notified of space availability in a course, will be able to enroll in the waitlisted course on MySuffolk>Register/Curriculum>Registration>Manage Waitlist.
Upon notification email, you will have 24 hours to add the waitlisted course. If the course is not added within the 24 hours of the email, your eligibility to enroll in the waitlisted course will expire and your seat will be assigned to the next student. If you are no longer interested in the course go to manage my waitlist and remove the course Students with course(s) listed as WAIT are not enrolled in the course. Faculty will be provided with a course waitlist with each student's numerical position. A student's position on the waitlist is not accessible on MySuffolk.
