How to Register

Choosing Your Program

To view the 2015-16 catalog, you can click the "Catalog" link from Evergreen's home page, or just go here.  You'll see an alphabetical listing of all programs and courses currently scheduled for 2015-16.  This is over 200 entries, so you'll want to filter them down to get a more manageable list of those that will be the best fit for you.

One way to do this is to find all the offerings that are available to you for fall quarter.  To do this, go into the Searching and Filtering Options drop-down and set the Credits, Class Standing, and Starting Quarter desired.  For example, a junior looking for a full-time program for Fall Quarter would set these as below:

The other way is to first filter for offerings that include a particular discipline or field of study.  To do this, click the Catalog Views drop-down, and then click Fields of Study

This will allow you to choose a particular field (e.g., Psychology, Marine Science, Media Studies) and view all programs and courses that include that field among their fields of study.  Once you've chosen a specific field, you can further filter the list by class level, credits, and starting quarter, as above.
If You'll be Taking a 16-Credit Program:
  • You'll only be registering for one program per quarter, but you should choose several back-up options, in case your top choice is filled by the time you register.
  • Since different class levels register on different days (seniors on Monday, juniors on Tuesday, etc.), we ensure that students in each level have an equal shot at getting in by holding a proportional number of seats for each class level.  So, for instance, a two-faculty program open to juniors and seniors would have its 50 total seats divided into 25 senior and 25 junior seats, as shown below.

On the other hand, if you were registering for a single-faculty program open to all levels, as shown below, there would be only six seats for each class level.

If your top pick looks like this, it's especially important to have some back-ups in mind!

If You'll be Taking Part-Time Programs and/or Evening and Weekend Classes:
  • We do NOT hold seats for each class level for these--anything offered for less than 16 credits has all seats opened on the first day of registration, and they go first-come first-served.  This means some of our more popular courses (e.g., ceramics, psychology) can fill on the first day with seniors.  Again, be sure to have back-ups!
  • We strongly advise you not to take 16 credits' worth of classes and part-time programs; they end up requiring more time and work than a single 16-credit program.  Please contact Advising if you have questions about an appropriate credit load for your particular situation.

Getting Registered

The first step is to check your Time Ticket (your assigned registration date and time).  To do this, log into your my.evergreen.edu account.  (You can reset a forgotten password on-line, or set up your account if you haven't done so already.) Once you're in my.evergreen.edu, click the "Registration" link, and then click "Check Your Registration Time Ticket, Status and Overrides."

You'll be taken to a screen like the one below, which shows the time ticket for a junior starting in Fall 2015.

Whatever your assigned registration date, it is important to be on the computer right away at 8:00 am, logged in, and ready with the Course Reference Numbers (CRNs) for your top choices.

At 8:00 am, click the Register for and/or Drop Classes Here link:

You'll be asked to select the term for which you're registering; make sure it's set to Fall 2015.

This will take you to the Add/Drop Classes page below. Immediately type the CRN number for your first-choice program into the text box, and click "Submit Changes."

If everything goes well, you should immediately get a screen telling you that you are "Web Registered" and indicating number of credits:

confirm registration

However, if your first-choice program has filled by the time you register, you'll get a screen that looks like this:

program full


If that happens, click the "Action" drop-down, select "Wait Listed," and click "Submit."

Then, immediately register for your second-choice program.  Being waitlisted for a program does not mean you're registered, and you should be sure to get yourself registered in one of your options.

Managing Waitlists

If you end up waitlisted for your first-choice program, don't despair!  There is a lot of registration movement over the summer, and you may well move up and into your preferred program by the time fall quarter starts.  Some things to keep in mind:

You can always check your position on a waitlist by logging into my.evergreen.edu, clicking "Registration", and then clicking "Student Registration Details."

If you rise to the top of a waitlist and a spot opens up in the program, our Registration office will automatically drop you from the program you're registered for, and add you to the one you're waitlisted for.  This means that you should be certain that whatever you're waitlisted for is the program you would truly prefer!  If you change your mind after registering, you can always go back and use the "Register for and/or Drop Classes Here" screen to drop your waitlisted program.
