Early Registration

The Early Registration window opens 5 school days prior the first regular registration day. Note: Incoming freshman are not eligible to utilize the Early Registration process due to the timing of orientation.

An e-mail with the instructions below is sent to eligible students three weeks in advance to allow time to schedule appointments with advisors. Please plan accordingly and make the advisor meeting a priority.

The Registration Help Center staff is also available for any questions regarding how to use E-Services or other related registration questions. They can be reached at registration@mnsu.edu or by phone at 507-389-2252. They are located on the first floor of the Wigley Administration Building (WA 132).

The following are the instructions for Early Registration:

  1. Log into the E-Services website to check for any holds that would prevent you from registering for classes. Once you have logged in, click on “Courses and Registration” and then “Check Registration Holds.”
  2. Resolve all registration holds. (For example: parking tickets, overdue books, academic probation or suspension issues) Go to the Registrar Registration Holds site to see where to go to resolve a hold.
