Preparing for Online Course Registration

  1. Confirm that your student account is current by checking your eBill. Your bill must be either paid in full or, if you enrolled in a payment plan, your monthly payments must be up to date.
  2. Confirm that there are no other holds on your account aside from the standard registration hold. To do this, login to the Mills Resource Portal, go to myMills, click on Student Records, and then click on View Holds. If you do have holds, please visit the M Center to resolve them.
  3. While in the Mills Resource Portal, confirm that your graduation date is listed correctly in myMills. Registration for the summer and fall 2019 terms will be accessible only to students who have a graduation date of fall 2019 or later.*
  4. Check the Course Registration Overview webpage to see when priority registration begins for your class level and when the Course Schedule will be available.
  5. Use the Course Schedule and the Mills Catalog for the year you started at Mills to determine which courses you should take for the coming semester (including some alternate choices).
  6. Schedule an appointment with your academic advisor well in advance of your priority registration date. Your advisor will need to review and approve your proposed course schedule and release the registration hold on your record.
  7. Confirm that the registration hold has been lifted from your record by logging into the Mills Resource Portal, going to myMills, clicking on Student Records, and then clicking on View Holds.

Please note that certain course types cannot be added to your schedule through the online registration process because they require additional review or approval. For detailed information regarding these courses, visit the Course Registration Overview webpage.

*Students whose graduation date has passed must update their graduation information by completing a Graduation Date Change form (PDF) and emailing it to records@mills.edu. Allow 2–3 business days for processing before access to online registration is restored.
