Register for classes online?

Online Registration and Drop/Add (schedule adjustment) is available to all admitted students with a BOSS PIN # who are not in a Visiting, Transient, or ICP admission category.

Step 1: Obtain advising form. Use the sample Advising Form found online (www.latech.edu ; scroll down and click on "A-Z"; then click on "A"; then click on "Advising Form"), or obtain a copy from your advisor/department/college.

Step 2: Obtain capus wide ID (CWID) and BOSS PIN number. If you are a new or returning student, you will need to obtain your BOSS PIN number from the Registrar’s Office (KH 207) – bring a picture I.D – or logon to www.latech.edu; scroll down and click on “A-Z”; click on “BOSS PIN Request”; read and follow directions to obtain BOSS PIN and CWID.

Step 3: Check and clear all holds. Log on to www.latech.edu; click on “BOSS” in the red banner top/center of web page; click on “Student BOSS Login”; enter Student ID (CWID) and BOSS PIN number. Then under the “Student Records” menu selection, click on “HOLDS”. All registration holds and official transcript holds will display on this screen, to include the offices you will need to contact to clear these holds before you can login to register online..

Step 4: Your academic advising. Make an appointment to see your academic advisor, and complete your Advising Form. If you don’t know who your advisor is, go to URL http://www.latech.edu/registrar/racing-form/ and then go to the General Information section, use the chart and/or the Directory to find/contact the Department Head or Dean’s office and someone there will ensure that you are assigned an advisor right away.

Step 5: Ensure the academic advisor or a department or dean's representative updates your registration access code. Without an updated Registration Access Code, you will be unable to load your schedule on BOSS and we will be unable to load it for you at the Registrar’s Office. Note: If any of your classes require a special permission signature, or a seat added, or a prerequisite waived, you will need to get a DROP/ADD slip, correctly annotated, signed, and then take it to the Registrar’s Office (Keeny Hall 207) for the permit to be loaded. IF you are an online student, have the Department coordinate it with the Registrar’s Office. Once the permit is loaded, it is the student’s responsibility to add the course on BOSS and complete tuition/fee payment.

Step 6: Load your schedule on BOSS. You will load your schedule on BOSS from any computer with internet access using your BOSS account. Permits must be loaded in the Registrars Office (KH 207) or coordinated through your department for online students. Students needing assistance can obtain this assistance in the BOSS Self Help Center located in the Registrar’s Office (KH 207).

BOSS Procedures:

a. Get Prepared: Use “Available Course Sections” on BOSS to find your subjects and sections, and WRITE DOWN THE CALL NUMBER(S). This is a "live" feature that is constantly updated as registration progresses. Pay attention to the prerequisites…if you don’t meet them, you won’t be able to register for the course without a permit. Also, write down several alternate selections (sections and courses) as this will save time if you have problems or time conflicts.

b. Beginning on your designated registration day/time:

(1) Log on to www.latech.edu;
(2) Click on “BOSS” in the red banner top/center of web page;
(3) Click on “Student BOSS Login”;
(4) Enter your Student ID (CWID) and BOSS PIN number;
(5) Go to the “Registration” menu and select the “Drop and Add Classes” menu option.
(6) Follow the screen instructions, load a set of call numbers in each cell, and then click on “Submit”. Read the feedback on the screen. Remember, if you need permit(s), these must be loaded in the Registrar’s Office (KH 207) before you can register for the permitted class(es). If you have Registration Holds, you will have to clear those before you can access the Drop and Add Classes menu option to load your schedule.

Step 7: Complete the fee payment/registration confirmation process as soon as possible. After you’ve loaded your schedule, check menu option “Account Summary/Payment” immediately and be sure to complete tuition/fee payment (or confirm registration).

Step 8: Get your TECH student ID - new or returning students. Go to the TECH Express Office located in the Student Center (enter from the Centennial Plaza side) and obtain your TECH ID. You must have a registered and paid schedule to obtain an ID. If you are a returning TECH student, you will need to have your ID reactivated.

Step 9: Get your TECH userID and password - new or returning students. Be sure to go by the University Computing Center (Basement, Wyly Tower) and activate your TECH USERID and Password for your TECH e-mail account. All official e-mail correspondence from the University is sent to student and faculty TECH e-mail accounts only. You’ll also need this information for your BLACKBOARD accounts associated with your courses.

Step 10: Critical - Update your emergency notification system information on BOSS. This information is also available online in “The Racing Form” General Information section.

Change my BOSS PIN #

Your BOSS PIN is a 6-digit numeric password originally assigned to you during admission and either delivered by letter or via your TECH e-mail account.

Go to www.latech.edu  
Click on the red “BOSS” bar.
Click on “Student BOSS Login”
Load Student ID (CWID) and BOSS PIN #. Confirm BOSS PIN #.
Click on “Change PIN” and follow the instructions

Notes:

1. For your own privacy and protection, do not give your BOSS PIN to anyone. For security reasons, the University will only e-mail reminders of your BOSS PIN to your TECH e-mail account. The University will not e-mail any personal elements to commercial ISP accounts. If you "pop" your e-mail from your TECH account to a commercial ISP account, you assume personal responsibility for the protection of your private information.

2. The University strongly suggests that you change your PIN to a number only you know (and will readily remember). When you type your PIN while logging on, it will appear as ****** to prevent others from seeing it. Six digits must be entered, with no spaces.

This information is also available online in “The Racing Form” General Information section.
