By reviewing the information below, you can make sure that your registration goes smoothly each quarter. Check out the Registration Guide for Spring 2021 for some quick tips and reminders on this registration period.
Registration begins at your initial enrollment appointment time/time ticket *. You can visit the academic calendar to find out when enrollment appointments will be viewable on R’Web and when the Schedule of Classes will be available. You may register during initial and makeup enrollment. During initial enrollment, undergraduate students who are in good academic standing may register for a maximum of 17 units - students who are not in good standing may only register for up to 15 units. During makeup enrollment, the maximum units students in good standing may register for is increased to 20 units. You can find all the registration phases on the academic calendar.
If you need special enrollment assistance like being able to enroll in only one portion of a CNAS course that you need to repeat (i.e., only repeating a lab but not the lecture of a course), please be sure to contact the CNAS Enrollment Management Center (EMC).

All About Waitlists
Some full courses offer a waitlist option during registration. If so, you will either see a message inviting you to add yourself to the waitlist or the course status will read, "FULL COURSE WAITLIST OPEN- This course is full. A waitlist with (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) students is available."
- Add Yourself to a Waitlist
- Remove Yourself From a Waitlist
- Wait-Listing Linked Courses
- How do I enroll in a class I wait-listed for and got into?
- What should I do if I missed my 24-hour deadline?
- Being on a waitlist does not guarantee eventual enrollment in a course.
- Waitlist units do not count toward your max number of units allowed.
- You will receive an email when you are being offered a seat off the waitlist. You will have only 24 hours to enroll in the course. If you do not enroll within the 24 hour timeframe you will be dropped from the waitlist and the seat will be automatically offered to the next student on the waitlist.
- Only waitlist yourself in one activity for linked courses. If a waitlist is available, it will either be on the lecture or on the smallest section of the linked course(s) only. For example, in a lecture/discussion pair, the waitlist will only be on the discussion since it is the smallest section. When you receive your space off the waitlist for the discussion, there should be an available seat in the lecture for you as well. You must register for all linked courses when you are registering for a class after having been on the waitlist.

Registration Planning Resources for Each Major

Registration Step by Step
Step 1: Log in to R'Web
Log in to R’Web with your NetID and password.
Need a NetID or forget your NetID/password? When you go to R’Web, select Password Reset. You will answer several security questions and then you will be provided with your NetID and password.
If you have forgotten your student ID, you will need to contact the Office of the Registrar at (951) 827-7284.
Step 2: Resolve Your Holds
If you have outstanding holds, an information box will appear when you first log in to R’Web letting you know right away. This information includes how to resolve your hold. The department initiating the hold must lift it before you can register for classes. You can also go to the “Holds” icon or the Student Profile in R’Web to see all your current holds. Some holds are informational only and will not prevent you from registering.
All CNAS students are required to submit a Term Plan in order to be cleared for registration, so this will likely be the main hold you will need to take care of in order to be able to register. Please be sure to submit your term plan at least 5 business days before your Registration Time Ticket. This information includes how to resolve your hold. The department initiating the hold must lift it before you can register for classes. You can also go to the “Holds” icon or the Student Profile in R’Web to see all your current holds.
Step 3: Registration
Once you have selected the “Registration” icon via R’Web, you can select “Prepare for Registration” to determine if your registration status, time ticketing and other requirements are met to allow you to register.
If you are ready to register and your time ticketing time has arrived, select “Register for Classes” and select the appropriate term.
If you have an approved term plan, you will see it by selecting the Plan tab within Registration. Enroll for your classes from that plan. If you were not required to have a term plan approved, you will be able to see your four-year course plan or a term plan you personally created. Use those plans as easy guides to register for classes and stay on track for graduation.
Step 4: Add, Drop, or Wait-list for Classes
Add a Class
Once you find a course and select ADD, it will show the course in your Summary with a status of “Pending.” To process the request, press SUBMIT.
If a linked discussion or lab section is required, please ensure all linked sections are in your Summary before you click SUBMIT. If there is room in the class, and you meet all requirements, the course status will now read “Registered.”
If the course you have selected is a variable unit course, it will show as only 1 unit when you first submit your enrollment. After you are successfully enrolled in the course, you can use the “Schedule and Options” tab to adjust your variable units accordingly. When it is a variable unit course, the unit amount is a hyperlink. Click on the number and a box will open for you to adjust the units. Once you are done, click SUBMIT at the bottom right to save your change. See detailed instructions here.
Drop a Class
Find the course you want to drop in your Summary area of registration. Select "Drop" from the action dropdown menu. Remember to also drop any linked lab or discussion sections. Select "Submit." The course status should now read "Dropped." You are allowed to drop classes through Friday of the second week of instruction using these steps. After that, it's called "withdrawing" from a class and requires extra steps. See Enrollment Adjustments for details.
Add or Remove Yourself From a Waitlist
Please see Waitlist Information.
Step 5: Review Your Classes and Exit Securly
Select "Schedule and Options" to view your final class schedule. If you would like to print or email your schedule, you can use the icons at the top right. See more details.
If everything looks all right, exit R'Web, clear your cache (if you are on a public computer) and quit your Web browser.
