Meeting with your primary advisor for course planning and to clear your advisor 'Registration Access Hold' (excluding professional pharmacy)
All continuing students must meet with your advisor for your first declared major prior to registration to plan your courses and to have your advisor 'Registration Access Hold' release each semester.
Holds are the biggest problem students encounter when trying to register on insidePacific. Holds will prevent you from being able to register! Check on insidePacific (found under Student Services, Student Records, and the View your holds) for any outstanding holds.
Admission Holds: Any documentation missing from your admission record will prevent you from registering. Please see the Office of Admission, 1st Floor Knoles Hall. Contact information: via email, Admissions or phone (209) 946-2211.
Financial Holds: You will not be able to register until all debts have been paid. Be aware that holds may be placed at any time. Keep your student account current by paying all charges by the assigned date and review it regularly. Student Account Office contact information: via email:Studentaccounts or phone: (209) 946-2517.
Immunization/Insurance Holds: All new students must meet the health requirements as outlined in the admission packet. Students must have submitted all of the above documentation or be cleared by the Health Services (Cowell Wellness Center; contact information: via email: CWC or phone: (209) 946-2315) by the last day to add classes.
Before you register for classes please verify that your address is current. Pacific must have your current address(es) and phone number(s). Students are responsible for mail sent to the address on file. Notify either the Finance Center or the Office of the Registrar of any changes via an Address Change form, available online under Registrar Forms.
Proof of the prerequisite or permission of the instructor is required before being able to register for a class. Overrides for this may be approved.
You will be able to view your assigned registration appointment two weeks prior to first day of the registration period via insidepacific.
Registration appointments are determined by academic level for graduate students. Undergraduate registration appointments are determined by total units earned (coursework in progress is not counted toward total units earned) within class level in the following order: Post-Baccalaureate, Senior, Junior, Sophomore and Freshmen. If total units earned are equal then it is determined by grade point average--highest being first. Lastly, unclassified students are assigned the last appointment times following freshman.
Note: Students registered with the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities and approved for priority registration and then student-athletes will be assigned priority registration for each class level (e.g. students with junior standing will have priority among juniors, etc.)
