Current Students

After mid-term break each semester you will receive class schedule information [refer to Schedule of Courses] and meet with your advisor regarding registration for the upcoming term(s). See the 'Upcoming Registration Dates' in the right hand box for specific dates. 

When you meet with your advisor, you will receive a registration PIN and assigned registration time, which is prioritized by your classification (total earned credits). Your assigned registration time and PIN are randomly assigned within your registration period.  

For Fall and Spring semesters, you may register online (through the NEST) anytime beginning with your assigned registration day/time, and continuing through the first week of classes.  Special permission courses require processing at the Registrar's Office after you obtain the necessary approval(s). 

Registration for Summer and January/Winter Term begins on the same day for all students, regardless of classification (see 'Upcoming Registration Dates'  in right box for specific day). 

Please note that all financial obligations to the University and other enrollment requirements, such as required immunizations or transcripts, must be met before you are allowed to register for any subsequent term. 

New Transfer Students

After you have been accepted to Creighton and your transcripts have been analyzed for transfer credit, you will be assigned to an advisor in your Dean's Office. You will then receive a registration time and PIN assignment in order to register along with current students.

New Freshman Students

In May, you will be invited to participate in a Summer Preview session.   At Preview, you will receive class schedule, registration and summer preview information.  While on campus, you will also have an appointment with a faculty advisor who will assist you with the Fall semester registration process.  

Two Summer Preview options are available -- four on-campus events and two virtual-preview dates.  If you are unable to attend an on-campus Preview session, you will receive information about participating in the Virtual Preview session.  Click Summer Preview for more information about these activities.
