Registering for Classes

Register on Campus

If you are on campus at Missouri State, you can go to the Registration Center on 3rd Floor Carrington to register.

Register via Fax

Students who live outside the Springfield Area or who are not able to come to campus during the day may register for classes via fax through the Continuing Education Office. Simply download the Course Enrollment Form, fill it out and fax it to the number on the form. The Continuing Education Office will register you and mail you receipts for your classes.

Register via the Web

Approximately 90% of our students now register for their classes online. Online registration allows you to register for your classes from anywhere in the world with internet access. In order to register for classes online, you need to follow the instructions below:

We encourage everyone to schedule an appointment to meet with your advisor either in person or by phone PRIOR to your registration date and time. Please call 417-836-8772 to schedule an appointment.

  • Check your Registration Status: Log into My Missouri State, click on the Academics Tab, and then select "Registration Status". Here you can see if you have any holds on your account that would prevent you from registering, see if you need an advisor release prior to registration, and can view the day and time you are first eligible to register for classes. You can also see if you are admitted for the upcoming term. If you need to be re-admitted or need an advisor release, please contact the Teacher Certification Office at 417-836-8772 and we will be glad to assist you.
  • Important registration information can be found on the Registration Website.
  • Class Schedules: You can access the class schedule by logging into My Missouri State and then clicking on the "Academics" Tab. If you need assistance finding the class schedule pages from this website, please go to one of our open computer labs for assistance.
  • Registration requires you meet the prerequisite for all courses before you register. Many of you will have prerequisite issues that will prevent you from registering. If you schedule an appointment to see your advisor well before registration, we can clear your prerequisites in the system allowing your registration to go smoothly. If you need a prerequisite waiver, please call the Teacher Certification office and provide our staff with the course and section you wish to add to your schedule. That information will be given to one of our advisors who will then review your file and grant the waiver if appropriate. You will be contacted if we have any questions, so make sure to leave a good email address and phone number.
  • Registering for Classes: While you are logged into My Missouri State go to the "academics" tab. Begin by selecting the semester for which you want to register. Next, click on add or drop classes to register or change your schedule.

If you are having difficulty registering, you can either visit any of the open computer labs on campus and ask for assistance, or you can stop by the Teacher Certification Office and someone will assist you.
