Tips for Registering

#1 —Make sure you have no holds
It is important to ensure that you have no holds on your student account. If you have holds that need to be cleared, please follow the on-screen instructions for what steps need to be taken. You may also view your holds on the My Status and Holds page on the MyACC portal. 
 
#2 — Add the correct semester to your plan
To plan and register for a semester , you will need to have that semester's plan created. You can do this with three simple clicks on the Plan and Schedule page.
 
#3 — I am only seeing a “Pay for Classes” option
“Pay for Classes” option
If you are only seeing a “Pay for Classes” option you may be a new applicant that is still being processed. If you have already been advised and are seeing only one option on the Self Service homepage please contact the Student Help Desk for more assistance.
 
#4 — I am seeing a “spinning” or loading icon and cannot register
If you are experiencing registration issues it may be due to high levels of traffic. This is common during the first few days of registration. If you have already created a plan, have added sections to your plan, and still cannot register please try to 1) sign out of Self Service and try again, 2) sign in to Self Service with either a different web browser or your current browser in “private” or “incognito” mode, or 3) try to sign in at a different time, as traffic may have subsided. As always if you run into any issues you can contact the Student Help Desk (helpdesk@austincc.edu) or our virtual Registration Stations (reg-station@austincc.edu) for assistance.
