Select and click on the appropriate:

  • Term (semester)
  • College (pick Housatonic from the menu)
  • Select Open
  • Level - select CREDIT
  • Scroll down to bottom of page - click on “Get Courses.”
    The schedule for the selected semester (term) will appear in alphabetical order.
Step 3: Look for the classes you want to take which are listed by subject (ART,ENG,MAT, etc.). Find the specific course (days/times) for which you would like to register.
Step 4: Copy the information from the live schedule into the corresponding boxes on the Registration Form.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each course for which you are registering.

Things to remember when creating a semester schedule:

  • Record the correct Course Reference Number (CRN).
  • No time conflicts (You can’t be in two places at once).
  • Verify the location of each course, which building, which campus.
  • Remember: Not all courses are offered every semester.  Consult faculty advisor for specifics. Click for a list of advisors by major...
    NOTE: If you are a NEW or TRANSFER student, who has never applied to College, you must complete an Admission’s Application before registering. Readmit students who have not attended the College in 2 years must complete a Readmit Application. Please contact the Admission’s Office for more information.
