To register for courses, you will use the SOU Student Information System, SISWeb (also known as Banner Self Service). 

  • For assistance with logging into MySOU or SISWeb, contact the SOU Student Help Desk at (541) 552-6900 or helpdesk@sou.edu
  • For assistance with SISWeb procedures, contact Enrollment Services at (541) 552-6600 or esc@sou.edu.

When to Register for Courses

Check the current Registration Timetable to see when you may register for courses. Even if the timetable indicates that you may register for courses on or after a certain date, some factors may prevent you from doing so. (See Registration Status and Holds, below.)

Note: If you are an admitted student, you are required to meet with your major advisor to develop your advising plan prior to registering for classes. You do NOT have to come to campus for this meeting. Your program coordinator can put you in touch with your major advisor.
