Process

Getting Started

To begin your class registration process please go to CNU Connect. Click on CNU Live in the top right corner. When you log in, your user name is your student ID number and your password is set by you.

  • Click on “Student Services & Financial Aid.”
  • Click on “Registration” and then click on “Select Term” and choose the term you would like to register for from the drop-down box. You must make sure you select the term you would like to register for prior to clicking add/drop classes.
    • You will be prompted to enter your “Alternate PIN” (registration PIN). A new “Alternate PIN” is assigned each semester by your academic advisor. Note: Your “Alternate PIN” is never used to log into CNU Live.

What You Can Do Now

  • Look up classes to add: You can look up classes to add by subject, course number, day/time or instructor.
  • Add/drop classes: If you know the CRN (course reference number) of the course you want, you can go directly to the registration worksheet.
  • Schedule of classes with course information: Click on the course to view the prerequisites or co-requisites and to make sure you have met all of the requirements for the course. If you have not met those requirements, you will not be allowed to register for that course online. You can ask for special permission from the instructor to register for a course in which you do not meet the prerequisites and/or co-requisites. Just bring a signed (by the instructor) Registration Override form to the Office of the Registrar. Please ensure that you have obtained the instructor’s permission on the line labeled “Special Permission Course.”

You are encouraged to register for a minimum of 12 semester hours to maintain full-time status. Note that full-time enrollment is required for financial aid purposes, participation in intercollegiate athletics and to reside in university residence halls.
