NEW! Important Registration Change for Summer and Fall!

Effective for the Summer & Fall 2019 registration period, your new Student Profile should be utilized to view your grades, view your advisor’s contact information, look up classes, prepare registration plans (ahead of your registration date!), and register for classes. The Student Profile also provides you with a user and mobile friendly view of the biographical and academic information that is on your student record, such as your major declaration. We will continue to support the previous registration process for this registration cycle only, but encourage you to familiarize yourself with the new process prior to the start of registration.

The Student Profile and the Learn about Student Profile training documentation are located under the My Campus heading on the right-hand side of the MyCanisius portal. Registration dates are available on the academic calendar, or in the advisement guide, which is located on the portal under the Schedule and Registration Heading.

By building registration plans ahead of time, you are able to discuss them with your advisor, and registering from a plan is much quicker than our current process! In addition, you can create multiple plans in order to have backup options quickly available to you. Don’t wait – take advantage of the Plan Ahead functionality, and start planning your summer and fall schedules now!

Questions regarding the Student Profile or the new registration process, can be directed to the Student Records & Financial Services Center at 888-2990, or via email at studentservices@canisius.edu. You can also stop by our office for assistance. We are located in Bagen Hall, room 106, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily (7:00 am to 5:00pm on Registration Tuesdays).
