Students register for classes online.


Banner provides access for students to:

  • Add or drop courses
  • Verify their financial aid information

  • View student records and make transcript requests

SLU Visiting Students

A SLU-Madrid admissions counselor at the Study Abroad Office in St. Louis will provide you with your registration PIN, which you will need to register and to make changes (add/drop courses) online.

Non-SLU Visiting Students

First, meet with your home campus advisor. It’s your responsibility to make sure the courses you register for will fulfill your requirements and transfer to your institution. You don't need a PIN to register. However, during the authentication process, the first time you go to MySLU, you may be asked for one. It's your date of birth (enter in the mm/dd/yyyy format). Also, if you enter a cell phone during authentication, make sure you have it with you to receive security codes.

All Other Students

Meet with your advisor prior to registration. An advisor meeting hold will be placed on your account, which your advisor will release when you meet.  You will not be able to register until your advisor releases this hold.

How to Register

Check the schedule of classes first, so you'll know the courses you want to register for. Write down the CRNs of those courses. Log in to Banner with your SLU Net ID and password.

If a course is full, add yourself to the waitlist. To be sure that you are waitlisted, view your schedule in Banner.  If a waitlist is full, email the registrar’s office.  Include your Banner ID and the CRN of the course you want.

Students make a lot of changes to their schedules during the add/drop period. If you are waitlisted and register as soon as you are able, chances are you will get into the course. If you change your mind once waitlisted, it's important for you to drop yourself from the waitlist (the same way you drop a course in Banner) to allow other students to register.

When a space opens up and it's your turn to register, you will receive an automatic email in your SLU email account. You will have 24 hours to register online. If you experience problems, let the registrar know immediately so you can be registered within those 24 hours. If you don't, the system will delete you from the waitlist and the next person will be notified until the list is exhausted, at which point the seat becomes available to the general population. You must check your SLU email account daily so that you don't miss your turn to register.

Once classes begin, you are encouraged to attend a course while waitlisted.
