What version of browsers supports
the web system?
Netscape 4.x or higher, Internet Explorer 4.x or higher, and
AOL browser 4.x or higher.
The online web registration system uses 128-bit encryption.
We recognize that some students may have old browsers, or newer
ones with only 56-bit support. When you login, if you see an
error message that reads "This page cannot be displayed" or a
dialog box that says: "An error occurred in the secure channel
support", check your browser's cipher strength as follows: In
the Internet Explorer click on HELP->about Internet Explorer.
The window that pops up should say "Cipher strength: 128-bit."
If it doesn't, clicking on "Update Information" will take you to
page with instructions for upgrading IE.
What browser settings do I use?
In your browser's settings options, make sure you have
How do I gain access to the system?
In order to ensure the security of your academic records when
using the online system, you must use your Student
Identification Number [ID#] and a PIN. Your Student
Identification Number is your Social Security Number without
hyphens (i.e. 123456789). Initially, your PIN is assigned by the
College and is mailed to you. We strongly recommend that you
change your college-assigned PIN to a number that you will
easily remember the first time that you access the system. Keep
your PIN in a secure place. If you lose or forget your PIN you
must go to the Office of the Registrar (Savoy bldg, Room 207)
to select another. No record of your PIN is maintained at the
college. YOU MUST PRESENT YOUR HOSTOS COLLEGE ID CARD WHEN
CHANGING YOUR PIN.
Note: Some functions may not be
available at certain times of the year.
What is the Take/Replace option?
The take/replace option combines the add and drop function by
permitting you to drop a course, but only if the one that you
want to add is available. This function ensures that you do not
lose a course while attempting to add another. To use this
option press the REPLACE button corresponding to the course that
you wish to replace. The system will then ask for the code
number of the section that is to be added. Enter the 4-digit
code for the section that you want to add, then press the
REPLACE button. If the course that you want to add is available
it will be added to your schedule and the course that you want
to replace will be removed; if not, neither action will be
taken. ONLY ONE TAKE/REPLACE OPTION MAY BE PERFORMED AT A TIME.
Therefore, if you have more than one take/replace request, you
must enter the first set of courses, process the request and
then enter the second request. You may combine the take/replace
option with regular ads and drops.
What registration problems might I
Below are some registration problem messages:
Course is Closed: There are no more seats available in
the section you selected. You may ask the system to search for
Course is canceled: The course you selected has been
canceled by the College.
Time Conflict: You have attempted to register for
courses that meet during overlapping time periods. You may
choose one or the other, but not both.
Batch program maximum limit exceeded: You have
exceeded the maximum number of credits allowed for the semester;
18 academic credits for matriculated students. You must obtain
permission from the Office of Academic Affairs to register for
credits in excess of the limit, and bring the permission to the
Office of the Registrar. You will then be able to use the web to
register the additional course(s). Students on probation will be
informed of the maximum number of credits they can take.
Course requires permission from the department:
Permission must be obtained from the department Chair or Unit
Coordinator. Registration for this course may be done in the
department or web after permission is obtained.
The College has placed a STOP on your record: The
system will explain the type of STOP and direct you to the
appropriate office to clear it; you will not be able to register
until all STOPS on your record have been cleared.
Session timeout: The system
will automatically timeout your session if there has been no
activity for 15 minutes. This protects your private information
and saves valuable system resources.
I clicked on the link to
view my class schedule, but it never showed up. Why?
If you are using a web accelerator to enhance your internet
access, it may have a default setting that does not open "popup"
windows (frequently used for advertising). The system uses popup
windows to display your class schedule. Look at the setting
options in your web accelerator program to change the default.
Registration did not go as I expected
and I have questions. Who do I ask?
