Please note the following change in the registration system for variable credit courses:


Once you receive a CRN, please follow the directions below in order to adjust your credit hours.  If you have already registered, please verify that you registered for the number of hours that you intended.


1)                  Within the new Patriot Web registration system, please select “Register for Classes”

2)                  Then select “Schedule and Options”

3)                  Since 998/999 are variable credit courses, you can click on the credit number under the “hours” column and it will prompt you to enter the number of credits you would like to register for. You must type in the credit amount within the range given. Click “submit” and the credits will be changed.
