Online Registration Instructions

Current Students

Please follow the registration procedures for undergraduate students / graduate students. You can go directly to Self-Service (www.arcadia.edu/selfservice) or access Self-Service from the Tools menu on MyArcadia.

Log into Self-Service using your MyArcadia login and password.

  1. Click on the Register tab.
  2. Click on Traditional Courses sub-tab.
  3. Select Section Search.
    • When using the Section Search function, be sure to select the Period for the academic year for which you wish to register, i.e., Fall, Summer, Spring.
    • The Course Code must be no more than 2-4 letters and three numbers (ie. EN472 or PBH640). All days and times will appear.
    • Searching for a partial course code (e.g., EN4 or EN47) works better than searching for a full course code (e.g., EN472).
    • Do not include section numbers in the course code field.
  4. Select a Period
    • Please note: Semesters are divided into sessions; Session 01 spans the whole term, Session 02 represents courses meeting during the first half, and Session 03 represents courses meeting during the second half. If you want to see all courses available in a term, please leave the 'Sessions' field blank while searching.
    • Summer terms have additional Sessions; AC1 for accelerated online courses during the first half of summer, AC2 for accelerated online courses during the last half of summer, 04 for an intensive Monday through Friday course at the end of summer.
  5. Click Search to display courses.
  6. Click Add.
  7. View Cart or Proceed to Registration.

Please note: If the section you prefer is closed (full) at the time of registration, register for all open courses and finalize the online registration process. Waitlisting (waiting in the queue for an available seat) is not currently supported by Self-Service, and you should email registrar@arcadia.edu indicating the term, session, course and section for which you would like to waitlist.
