Smart Registration


TCL now uses WebAdvisor’s Smart Registration, which allows you to register for courses based on the requirements for your selected major. Smart Registration helps prevent you from registering for a course that will not be paid for by Financial Aid.

Instructions to Smart Registration Online:

Smart Registration is accessed through WebAdvisor. If you have already set up your WebAdvisor account, proceed to the instructions below for Smart Registration. If you still need to set up your WebAdvisor account, click here to learn how.

Note – Since Smart Registration limits you to registering only for courses in your major, if you are not in the correct major, you must change your major prior to registering. Contact your Advisor for assistance in changing your major.
