Step One: Interactive HOP Registration Guides



Step Two: Major Advising Videos by Department

*Step Three: OPTIONAL* Drop-in Registration Support Labs

  • If you don't have access to a computer or if you've gotten stuck while registering for classes, you may drop-in to a registration support lab
    • Scroll down to see if we'll be in your area
    • These are NOT replacements for the HOP August session
    • We work directly with students in the lab but families are welcome to attend with the student
    • Do not expect one-on-one advising. Time with an Admissions Counselor will be limited.
    • HSU faculty and staff will review your schedule with you during the August HOP and this is when you'll receive very detailed major and university advising.
    • Attendance at a support lab does not change your class registration status. You may not register if deadlines have not been met.
