All matriculated undergraduate students at CCSU are encouraged to register for classes themselves using the web registration program called CentralPipeline. Exceptions to this are incoming freshmen who are pre-registered by academic advisers.
The University sets aside two weeks each semester for priority registration. Priority is based on the number of credit hours you have earned not including the credit hours for which you are currently enrolled. Students with the most credits are given the first priority date. Students with fewer credits are given later priority dates within the two week window. Incoming transfer students are given priority dates right alongside our currently enrolled students.
Students are issued an Alternate PIN number each semester they enroll in classes. The Alternate PIN number is essentially a password required to register for classes on CentralPipeline. This PIN number changes each semester and must be obtained through your academic adviser. Incoming transfer students obtain the PIN number during their initial advising appointment with the SEPS Advising Center.
CentralPipeline allows you to search the system for classes, add and drop classes, confirm your enrollment in classes immediately, and print your schedule. Once the two week priority week has passed, all students have continuous access to the system, with a few minor block-out periods when the system is shut down for maintenance. The system is very user-friendly and a full Registration Guide for Students is available on the web. Priority dates and up-to-date instructions can be found on the Registrar’s Office website.
