Course Registration and Enrollment
- Register for Classes Online through myPNW portal
See our step-by-step guide to register for PNW classes online in the new Student Scheduling Assistant. Students can also drop / add classes through this system. PNW no longer uses Drop/Add cards.
Learn more about the degree audit tool where you can see how your completed and in progress courses meet degree requirements and what courses you still need to take. A link to myPNWplan can be found on the Registration tab in myPNW portal. NOTE: This system is for undergraduate students.
