CHOL: Registration Instructions
The steps below explain the procedure that should be followed to successfully complete your registration for classes using CHOL.

Students are advised to first run a Degree Evaluation before registering for classes.

This will allow you to see what courses you have completed thus far and what courses you need to do to complete your degree programme.

In light of the changes in programme requirements over time, students should note that the information set out in the Degree evaluation are subject to the approved faculty regulations. When in doubt, students should consult with their Faculty Advisors.

This initial step should better inform your decision on what courses you should register for this semester. A document that guides you through the process of running the Degree Evaluation can be downloaded here.
