Registrar: Registration FAQs

Ready to Register?

Have you been accepted to Armstrong State University?

You must successfully complete the application process before you have access to register. Check your ADMISSION STATUS

Do you have any holds? 

Most holds block registration. Check your holds on Port under the Schedules and Tools block.

Do you have access to PORT? 

Sign into Port with your student email prefix (initials and 4 numbers) and the password you created. 
Look up your PORT ID 
RESET YOUR PASSWORD

Do you have an active time ticket? 

Time tickets are assigned to newly admitted and returning students.  To see your registration time, go to Port, select the Register tab, select Registration Status, and enter the semester and year.

If you do not have a time ticket or if you have an outdated time ticket, you may need to readmit to Armstrong.  If you have been gone for more than one calendar year, you will need to contact the Office of Admissions at 912.344.2503 or admissions.info@armstrong.edu.

Have you been advised? 

New Freshman are advised through Navigate orientation (https://www.armstrong.edu/prospective-students/navigate).  First semester schedules are pre-registered prior to Navigate.  During orientation students have the opportunity to make schedule changes.

New Transfer students are encouraged to attend a transfer session of Navigate orientation (https://www.armstrong.edu/prospective-students/navigate-schedules) where they can meet with an advisor and register.  For more information contact the Academic Advisement Office at 912.344.2570 or advise me@armstrong.edu.

Returning students (who have been enrolled within the last three terms) must meet with academic advisors before registering.  Your academic advisor is listed on your Permanent Student Record (PSR) in your SHIP account.

Post Baccalaureate students should approve registration plans with the office of Academic Advisement at 912.344.2570 or advise me@armstrong.edu.

Do you have your registration access PIN?

Your advisor will give you a registration access PIN each term. Use this number to access your online registration options. If you’ve been advised and misplaced your PIN, contact the office of the registrar at 912.344.2576 and press 1 for records and registration, or email registrar@armstrong.edu.

Priority and Open Registration

Priority and Open Registration

Who can register in priority registration? 

Returning students, or students who attended Armstrong within the last 3 semesters, are welcome to register during priority registration. 

When does registration start?

Registration start dates are different for everyone.  To see your registration time, go to Port, select the Register tab, select Registration Status, and enter the semester and year. 

What is a time ticket?

Returning students are assigned registration dates (time tickets) during priority registration based on student status. Check the Registration TIME TICKET SCHEDULE for more information.

If you do not have a time ticket or if you have an outdated time ticket, you may need to readmit to Armstrong.  If you have been gone for more than one calendar year, you will need to contact the Office of Admissions at 912.344.2503 or admissions.info@armstrong.edu.

When does registration close?

Students should have schedules set before the first day of the session.  Web registration is open through the drop/add period.  See the ACADEMIC CALENDAR for exact dates. 

Drop/Add Period
 

Drop/Add Period

When is the drop/add period?

The drop/add period only runs the first few days each session. Schedule changes after the drop/add period may incur academic and financial penalties.  See the ACADEMIC CALENDAR for exact dates. 

What are the penalties for dropping a class during the drop/add period?

There are no grades assigned and no charges for a dropped class.  This only applies to courses removed from the schedule prior to the start of term and during the drop/add period.  Dropping a course reduces the number of hours enrolled.  That change may affect financial aid, veteran benefits, and scholarships.  Always check in with your aid office before making a schedule change.  

How do I drop a course?

To drop a course, log into Port, Registration, and Add/Drop.   Find the course in your schedule, and click on the pull down arrow.  Select drop, then submit the changes. 

How do I add a course?

Adding a class adds charges to your account.  Always check your bill after a schedule change and see your aid office if needed.  Log into your SHIP account and select the following:​

  • Student Services and Financial Aid
  • Registration
  • Add/Drop Courses
  • Select a Term
  • Search for Classes
  • Check the box for the course you want
  • Submit changes
Do late fees apply during the drop/add period?

If registration exists on the first day of the session, late fees do not apply. If you are registering for the first time during the late drop/add period or if you were previously dropped for non-payment, late fees may be applied. 

Late Registration
 

Late Registration

When is Late Registration?

Students registering from a blank schedule on or after the first day of the session are considered late.  Late registration fees and late payment fees may apply. 

What are late fees?

Late fees are a one-time charge for the term.  If you register for the first time on or after the first day of the session, a late registration and a late payment fee may be applied. 

Do late fees apply during the drop/add period?

If registration exists on the first day of the session, late fees do not apply. If you are registering for the first time during the late drop/add period or if you were previously dropped for non-payment, late fees may be applied. 

Registration Errors
 

Registration Errors

Pre-Req and Test Score

A pre-requisite is a course or a test you must pass before you are eligible to register for the course you requested.  For example, you must pass SPAN 1001 with a C or better before you can register for SPAN 1002.  Check the university UNDERGRADUATE / GRADUATE CATALOG for more information. 

Co-Req

A co-requisite is a course that must be taken with another course.  One example is a science class that has a lecture and a lab.  To satisfy a co-requisite error, enter the CRN numbers for both classes in the boxes on the Add/Drop worksheet and submit both changes together.

Campus Restriction

Armstrong offers multiple campus options: Main Campus in Savannah, Liberty Center in Hinesville, and Online.  Check the section number for the course with this error.  

Liberty Center courses have a section number beginning with L - Ex. L01. If you are a main campus student trying to register for a Liberty Center course, or a Liberty Center student trying to register for a main campus course, please contact the Liberty Center for more information at 912.877.1906.  

Time Conflict

A time conflict error will occur when attempting to register for courses with overlapping class times. 

Academic Standing Prohibits Registration

Your current academic standing is preventing registration and you may need an override to register. Please contact Nichole Booker in the Registrar's Office at 912.344.3261 to review your academic status. 

I have an override.  Why do I still get the same error message?

To activate your override, enter the CRN number directly in the box at the bottom of the registration worksheet.  Then submit the changes.  If you still have trouble, a staff member may need to verify that your override and error match.

Class Closed

Class Closed means there are no more available seats in this course. Beginning Fall 2016, waitlisting is available in some courses. If you add yourself to a waitlist, you will be automatically notified through your Armstrong student email when a seat becomes available. Check out the WAITLIST INSTRUCTIONS for more information.
