STEP 2: Clear any Registration Blocks before proceeding
- Select “Check for Registration Blocks” in the menu
- If you have registration blocks, you will need to clear them before proceeding to the next step.

STEP 3: Unblock courses requiring Faculty Consent (skip to STEP 4 if you are not taking restricted courses)
- Email the instructor to request permission. In the email, you must include your GTU ID number, which is located on the front of your GTU library card.
- Once you have heard back from them that you are admitted to the course, you may register for the course.
STEP 4: Register for Courses
- Select “Student Planning” under Registration. (Remember to have the course numbers, and any other information on hand)
