Tips for Successful Registration:

Make certain your accounts for Millsaps email and MajorAccess, a web-based information management tool that allows access numerous online resources, are both ready to use. You have received your Millsaps email username in a previous correspondence from Millsaps. Both will be utilized in the Registration process.

1. Set up your Advising/Registration time period.
Please keep in mind that the earlier you register, the wider the range of available course options.

Use the online Registration Advising/Challenge Registration form to choose whether you want to be called for setting up registration via phone or whether you will be participating in Challenge Week, during which you will register for classes.

Challenge Week dates:
June 9 - 14 - Week 1
June 23 - 28 - Week 2

2. 2. After completing Registration Advising/Challenge Registration form, you will be contacted by either Dr. Melissa Lea if are setting up registration via phone or by College Chaplain Rev. Christopher Ross Donald College if you are participating in Challenge Week.

3. Email your advisor. Using your Millsaps Email, contact your assigned faculty advisor. You and your advisor will correspond to discuss advising and to make an appointment to talk on the phone or to meet in person. It is very important that you be available at the agreed-upon appointment time. If you miss your appointment time, your registration appointment will be cancelled. (You will still be able to register during Orientation on campus.) Make sure you have reviewed the academic information before your appointment with your advisor!

4. Set up Registration. Login to MajorAccess, hit the "Current Students" tab and follow the link to "E-Registration Documentation." Read over each of the documents carefully to familiarize yourself with the registration process.

      a. Use the E-Registration Card under the "Current Students" menu in Major Access to create your "Suggested Course List." These are the classes you'd like to take in the fall. You are now ready to be advised.

      b. After talking with you about your academic goals and requirements, your advisor will approve courses from your "Suggested Course List." Those courses will show on your E-Registration Card as being "Advisor Approved." You can now hit "Select & Register" on the action bar.

      c. Pick the Sections of the courses you want, making certain that none of the meeting times of your courses will conflict with one another. If no conflicts exist, you have successfully registered! You can review your registration in the subsequent screens.
