Registration

Registration Information

Access to registration, either online or in person, begins with seniors and graduate level students. Classification for registration is determined by your overall hours earned plus your current enrolled Fall 2023 hours.

If you experience an issue that cannot be resolved during registration, please contact the Registration office at 405.585.5110.

Additional Registration Information

Hold Information

Two holds have been placed on all student accounts. These holds must be cleared by the student prior to registration for each upcoming term. The holds are listed as Tuition Promissory Note Hold and Student Handbook Hold. Every student must acknowledge their understanding of both the Tuition Promissory Note and the Student Handbook before they will be allowed to register for classes for the upcoming term.

It is easy to resolve these particular holds. When a student completes the process electronically through Self Service Banner, the holds are automatically lifted and the student will be permitted to register online. Below you will find step by step instructions on how to resolve these holds. You may resolve these holds at any time prior to the opening date of your registration period but you will not be able to register for classes until your registration period opens.

  2. Click on the Student tab and follow this path: Student tab > View Institutional Holds > Click here to resolve holds
  3. Affirm your understanding of the documents by clicking the acknowledgement boxes and then click submit.
  4. If no other holds exist on your account, the registration window of Self Service Banner will open immediately after you have cleared the hold(s). However, you may not register for classes until your registration period opens.
