Course Registration

Scheduling your classes is one of the most exciting aspects of being a college student! You will be able to register for class online beginning in mid-July.  To prepare for the process, check out the university catalog as well as your college channel for information and helpful links!  Throughout the month of June important updates and information regarding the registration process will be posted on your student portal and will also be sent to your Lehigh University email address.  Keep an eye out for emails about when and how to register, videos reviewing how to utilize the registration system, and advice from your college advisors.
