The registration process works differently for everyone depending on student status. Whether you're a current student, a new student or a guest student, we have your process below!

Registration for Current Students

Your Advisor can also provide your PIN, which you may need to register. If your advisor is a faculty member, their availability may be limited over the summer. If you need assistance connecting with your Advisor, please contact

Meeting with an Advisor

Students are paired with advisors based on academic program and the advisor's specialty. In some instances, students are assigned to the Advising Center where they meet with an available academic advisor. Each semester, students receive a letter regarding the forthcoming scheduling assistance and registration period (Therefore, it is important for you to maintain up-to-date address information with the Bristol Records Office).
