Advising and Registration

Registering for classes is one of the most important tasks you’ll complete as you start your academic journey at Mount Aloysius College.

You will receive an email inviting you to work one-on-one with your academic advisor and to self-enroll in the Student Canvas page. This email will give you instructions on how to set up your advising appointment. During this appointment, you will review your new credits, general education requirements and major requirements, and sign up for your fall 2022 classes.

Tips to ensure a successful advising and registration appointment

  • Select an hour where you can be available without distractions in an appropriate environment like your home or other quiet space.

  • Make sure you sign in with a reliable internet connection on a computer with Zoom and camera access. It is required that you use a computer and not a phone for your appointment. Please contact us if you have technology concerns.

  • Review the “Registration Planning” module in the Canvas course prior to your appointment.
