Early in the semester, review your degree audit and make sure your major(s), minor(s), and thematic sequence (if applicable) are listed correctly. If they do not appear or if they are incorrect, this may affect your ability to register for the appropriate courses.
Step 2: Meet with your Advisor
Step 3: Find Out When You Can Register
Step 4: Plan Your Courses
- Use Course List to view course offerings. Be sure to check the course details for any prerequisites or restrictions that might impact your registration.
- Make a list of the types of courses for which you hope to register. Sometimes these will be specific required courses, but other times they might be a type of course with multiple options (e.g., Miami Plan Creative Arts, or a range of options within a major).
Step 5: Register Online

Changing Your Course Registration
Adding a Course
You can add open courses during the add/drop period using BannerWeb. If you wish to add a course that is closed or a course for which you are receiving registration add errors, you will use Course List to confirm whether the course is using the Banner Waitlist or Registration Override Request (ROR) application.
Dropping a Course
If you do not wish to complete a course, you MUST officially withdraw from the course; you cannot just stop attending. During the first few days of the term, you may drop a course using BannerWeb. Once BannerWeb registration closes, you must email your instructor and ask that they drop you from the course roster. However, before deciding to drop a course, we recommend that you consult the instructor and your academic advisor to discuss the implications. There are very specific deadlines that dictate the consequences of dropping a course. Dates and deadlines vary between full-semester and sprint courses.
Note: Please consult the academic calendar for official withdrawal deadlines.
