Registration Guide

Note: Although advisors attempt to provide students with the best available information, the student ultimately selects the courses and constructs his or her program to his or her own satisfaction. It is the student’s responsibility to see that program requirements are met and that the proper course for the intended major are taken in the proper sequence.

1. Registration and Schedule Planning

Now that you’ve been admitted to Hampton University, it is time to start thinking about the classes you will take this fall. Because we want you to start your college career off right, this information packet will guide you through the process of selecting and registering for courses. Early registration is encouraged since some classes will close due to the number of students attempting to register.

Registration is the process of setting up a class schedule and reserving a place for you in each of those classes. The attachedĀ Curriculum GuideĀ identifies the courses that are required for your major during your first year at Hampton University. You must register for one section for each of the course designated for the first year at Hampton University. You MAY NOT deviate from the courses that are outlined for you. By doing this, you could delay your progress in your selected degree program.

Plan your schedule carefully.Ā A Schedule Planning Worksheet is enclosed for your use. Record information about each section in which you would like to register.

  • Make sure you have the proper Course Reference Number (CRN) for each of your courses. This is a five-digit (5) number and is required to identify the department, course and section you are selecting when registering. Each course will have a unique five-digit CRN. Course Reference Numbers change with each semester.
  • Make sure there are no time conflicts among the classes you select. Check the days and times on which selections are offered.
  • Prepare a list of alternate sections for each course by listing the alternate CRNs, in case your first choice(s) is not available.

1.1 Registration Process

Once you have selected courses and planned your schedule, it is time to register for those courses. Hampton University uses an automated system called HUNet for registration. HUNet allows students to register for classes and to adjust their schedule by using a computer with internet access.

You will need two numbers to identify yourself – your HUID number and your Personal Information Number (PIN). Please keep both of these numbers confidential – the combination of the two will allow access to your personal records, and knowledge of these two numbers could allow unauthorized persons to add or delete classes in your schedule. The web system will ask for these two numbers each time you log-on.

A guide for accessing the HUNet web system is enclosed. Please remember your PIN. If you need technical assistance logging-in, please contact the Registrar Office by emailĀ registrar@hamptonu.edu. Once connected, you must check for holds and, then register for courses.

  1. Check for Holds.Ā All holds must be cleared before any registration activity can occur. Holds arise from your failure to meet academic requirements; submit important paperwork, like your immunization record or physical exam report; or from a need for you to make arrangements regarding your financial matters. If you have holds on your account, you will be prevented from registering.
  2. Register for Courses.Ā To register for a course, use the 5-digit Course Reference Number (CRN) listed beside each course section. The system will prompt you for each entry and will respond to tell if you have been registered in the class. Any special conditions will also be noted at the time you request the class. If the class is closed, you will be given assistance in finding another section. Be sure to write down alternative choices of class sections before you access the system.

Once you have registered for one section of every first semester course listed on yourĀ Curriculum Guide,Ā you have successfully completed the registration process! You are halfway through enrolling at Hampton University for the fall.

1.2 Choosing an English Course

If you have taken the Advanced Placement (AP) test for English Language/Composition and earned a score of “3” you will receive credit for ENG 101, therefore, register for an ENG 102 course for the fall semester. If you earned a score of 4-5 on The Advanced Placement (AP) test for English Language/Composition you will receive credit for both English 101 and 102 and do not need to register for English 101 or 102. Please submit your AP scores to the Registrar’s Office, and register accordingly.

Please note that no credits are granted until official AP scores have been receives in the Registrar’s Office. Be advised that taking AP classes without taking the AP exam will not give you credits.

If you have a verbal SAT score of 580 or higher, or have a verbal ACT score of 25 or higher, please register for ENG 102H (Honors). You will automatically be given credit for ENG 101 if you earn a grade of “C” or better in ENG 102H (Honors).

If your verbal SAT score is less than 580 or your verbal ACT score is less than 25 and no AP or IB credits are forthcoming, please register for ENG 101.

NOTE:Ā  AP Scores are not scheduled to be sent to the University until July.Ā  Given the large volume of scores, it may take 2 ā€“ 3 weeks for processing.Ā  The equivalency will appear on your unofficial transcript on HU Net once it has been added to your record.
