Instructions for Student Planning are found below.
Registration for Champlain College Online and Graduate students occurs multiple times throughout the year, depending on which term a student is registering for. Online students will work with their academic advisor to plan and register for classes.
Students can refer to the College's Academic Calendars for registration dates.

Some students will encounter registration holds on their records. This means the college needs them to do something in order to register for classes. Registration hold information is communicated in a banner in the Student Planning module of Self Service. Your Academic Specialist is here to help you understand the holds and connect you to the offices you work with to resolve them. All registration holds will be placed on records by Monday, October 2, 2023. Reasons for holds include:
Your registration window is the date and time when registration is open to you. In Student Planning, you will see your registration window displayed as a banner under the schedule tab.
Student Planning is a tool in Self Service that allows you to plan out your courses for your entire Champlain College career; to review your plans with your Faculty Advisor and have them approved; and to register for your courses. It can also be used to plan courses in a weekly schedule format. If you are considering changing your major, you may "view a new major" and see the degree requirements for the program you are interested in. Your Academic Specialist in the Registrar's Office is available to review the Student Planning module with you and answer any questions you have.

Adding your name to the waitlist of a section is a great way to indicate that you're interested in the class if room becomes available, but enrollment is not guaranteed. Please register for an available second-choice section which you can drop later if your first-choice becomes available.
Students will receive email in their Champlain College Email if they are offered a spot in a waitlisted class. Students have 24 hours to respond to that email to claim the space before the spot is offered to the next student.Link to this FAQ
