BANNER and Course Registration

BANNER and Course Registration

Incoming students can register for courses online the day prior to the start of classes (from 7 p.m. to midnight). Course registration in Banner will open on Wednesday, 9/3 at 8 AM.

  • Go to Self-Service Banner and click on the “Enter Secure Area” link.
  • Log in using your official web authorization - the same username and password used for your university email. 
  • Upon logging in, you may register for courses, check financial aid, change your address, etc.
  • You will need your Banner ID, which is printed on your Brown ID Card. 

There is an open period of about 3 weeks when registrations can be changed. Please refer to the academic year calendars on the Registrar's website.

You will register for each upcoming semester during a prescribed pre-registration period (early November and mid-April) in the current semester. Mark the dates and watch for emails regarding these preregistration periods. Those who do not preregister each semester will have a hold put on their accounts and must pay a fee to have it removed before they are cleared to register again.

ALL REGISTRATION CHANGES, ADDITIONS AND DELETIONS SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO YOUR ADVISOR’S ATTENTION AS THE ACADEMIC YEAR PROGRESSES.
