Registration: Continuing Students

If you plan on attending Southwestern Christian University in the next consecutive semester, these are the necessary steps for registration:

Step 1: File your FAFSA for the next academic year no later than January 1, and apply for all available scholarships by the deadline. (You must complete a FAFSA form each year if you plan to use federal aid).

Step 2: Make sure your student account is clear. If you have any remaining balance, resolve it before you try to enroll for the next semester.

Step 3: Contact your advisor to discuss what classes you need to take for the upcoming semester. Be sure to check your Degree Audit in your student portal to track your own progress.

Step 4: Enroll in classes

  • Traditional Students: Enroll through the student portal (instructions are on the home page of the student portal)
  • Adult, Online and Graduate Students: Check your enrollment on your student portal to make sure your advisor enrolled you as you discussed.

Step 5: Sign payment contracts with the business office, and pay housing deposits, if  necessary.

Step 6:  Make sure Student Life has all your forms and documents they require. 

Step 7:  Make your first payment no later than the established deadline for the semester.
