Fall 2022 Advising and Registration

Registration for Fall 2022 will open on March 31st. Each student’s registration start time will be posted in DataVU by Spring Break. Instructions for viewing the registration start time, adding courses to a study plan, and registering are available online. Account holds prevent viewing the registration start time in DataVU; students should be sure to resolve them as soon as possible.

Students who have applied for May or August 2022 graduation will not be assigned a registration time for the Fall 2022 semester. If you will be taking fall classes and do not receive a registration time by Spring Break, please email registrar@valpo.edu for assistance.

The Schedule of Classes for Fall 2022, Spring 2023, and Summer 2023 will be available in DataVU on February 14th.

To prepare for advising and registration:

  • Make an appointment with your primary advisor. Once you finalize the academic plan together, your advisor will update your account to reflect Advisement Complete.
    • If you are a Christ College student, please also make an appointment with the Assistant Dean of Christ College.
    • If you have an additional major or minor, remember to coordinate with an advisor from that department as well.
  • If you have any account holds, resolve them before registration begins. Account holds (also called Student Restrictions) are now displayed under Notifications in DataVU and appear in a text box at the top, right corner of the Plan & Schedule screen as well as on the Home screen.
    • Use this list of Student Restrictions and contact information to reach the relevant office to resolve any hold.
    • Only balances of $3,000 or more restrict registration. Student Accounts uses a separate notification for balances under $3,000 that allows registration without delay.
  • If you plan to change any majors or minors, submit a Curriculum Change eForm as early as possible. Some courses are reserved for students with a related major or minor.

The Register for Classes in DataVU Student Planning article includes instructions and images to help you use the registration screens.
