Registering for Classes


Course registration is one of the most important ways to get you going as a student. This is how you can add a course:

Go to and login with your BYUI Credentials

Scroll down towards the bottom of the page until you see "Manage Your Courses" and click on the Add/Drop Courses button.

Scroll towards the bottom of the page to the section which says Course Search. There are 6 different categories you can fill out. If you have questions about what each section means, click on the blue circle with a question mark inside it.


- Usually, it works better if you use only two or three of the search criteria boxes (i.e. subject and course code, or class type and subject).

- When searching in the course code box, use only the numbers of the course code instead of the full course code.

- It may take some trial and error to find the class you need. If filling out the course title or the course code doesn't work, try just filling out the first three fields and going through the pages of search results.

- If you want to use the full course code, There must be 5 characters before you enter in any numbers. So if you were searching FDENG 301, you would enter in FDENG301 without a space between the characters and the numbers. But if you were searching for B 100, you would need to enter 4 spaces between the letters and characters so that the total number is 5, like this: B    100.
