How do I register for courses?
You will need to be advised before you enroll. The
process for assigning advisors will differ among the colleges and
schools. In some colleges the advisor will be a Dean; in
others it will be a member of the department or division faculty in
your program. During the initial advisement, you will be able
to plan your program of study and familiarize yourself with the
policies of your college and of the University. Once advised, you
may register according to the schedule published by the Registrar.
You may register via the Web at www.stjohns.edu/pls2. Registration requires
you to enter your University ID and your PIN. (Your ID is your “X”
number as it appears on your acceptance letter.) Registration also
requires students to enter their Priority Registration
Number. For a course to count toward your degree, it must be
an approved course in your program.
Prior to the start of each subsequent term, the Registrar mails
students a notice informing them of the dates of registration and
the graduate division of your college will mail a registration
packet to you or they will provide the priority number to you at
advisement. That packet will include a Priority Registration
Number [PRN] and instructions on how to register online. . This
schedule and other information is also available on the
University’s Web site. The Web list of course offerings
are updated daily and should be consulted regularly for additions,
cancellations and changes.
We recommend that each semester you make an appointment with
your advisor to discuss your progress towards the degree and any
other questions that you should have.
If you need to take a semester off, please file a
maintaining matriculation form with the Registrar's Office. There
will be a $100 fee for maintaining matriculation.
Office of the Registrar
The Office of the Registrar provides services and support to
students and alumni, faculty and their departments, and various St.
John's constituents except the School of Law, which has its own Registrar.
The Office is responsible for the accuracy and integrity of the
University's official student records. Our chief responsibilities
fall into six broad categories: registration; record-keeping;
verifications and transcripts; course offerings; classrooms; and
graduation. In its varied activities, the office works
closely with the offices of the Provost, Information Technology,
Admission, Financial Aid, the Bursar, the College Deans and the
University Freshman Center
