All continuing degree-seeking students at Iona College register for classes and manage their schedules online using their Student Portal. The Student Portal is also utilized for schedule adjustments during the Add/Drop period.
In-person registration may also be utilized by select groups for all or some portion of the registration process.
How to Register
As a continuing Iona student, you should use your Student Portal self-service access to register for courses based on your assigned time in the online registration schedule.
To participate in online registration you must:
- Know your Student Portal ID and password. If you need assistance logging into your Student Portal, please contact the Help Desk at (914) 633-2635.
- Check the Student Portal for your online appointment. This date is the earliest day you can register.
- Check to see if you have any holds that block registration (i.e. dean's, advisement, health, student account, financial aid, etc.). If you have one of these holds you must work with the appropriate office to have it removed.
- If you have an advisement hold you must see your adviser before your appointment and have the advisement hold lifted from your account.
New freshmen should visit their Road Map and register online in the Student Portal.
Once you have registered online and finalized a schedule, an adviser will remove your online registration access before the first Iona term begins. All adjustments to your schedule, including within the Add/Drop period, must then be reviewed and approved by the adviser and submitted to the Registrar's Office in McSpedon Hall, Rm. 201 on a signed Program Card and Registration Form.
New transfer students should visit the Road Map and follow the steps outlined.
As a transfer, you will have an advisement hold placed on your record and must schedule a meeting with the Center for Advising and Academic Services for course selection. After the advisement visit, you will receive an approved Program Card and your advisement hold is removed. You will then register online in the Student Portal.
Some courses on your Program Card cannot be added online and will require manual registration by the Registrar’s Office. Your Student Portal will provide messages informing you of this. If this occurs, please follow these steps:
- Bring your Program Card to the Enrollment Center in McSpedon Hall, Rm. 201. You will be asked to fill out a registration form for the course(s) and they will be added to your schedule by a staff member.
- If you are registering remotely, email a scanned image or clear photo of your Program Card and a signed registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org. The courses will be added to your schedule.

Mode of Instruction
Iona College offers traditional in-person courses. Students must attend courses in-person at the designated times. Traditional courses may be enhanced via the use of Blackboard or other technologies.
For Hybrid (HY, RHY, HYA, HYB) course sections, some class sessions are online and some class sessions are conducted on-site. Students who are based at one campus will need to travel to the other campus for on-site sessions that are scheduled by the instructor.
For Distance Learning (DL, DL1, DL2) course sections, no on-site classroom sessions are scheduled. These courses provide motivated students the opportunity to use Blackboard, an Internet-based course management system that uses discussion forums, email, written assignments, quizzes, and a virtual classroom for interacting with the instructor and other students. Students can access these courses anytime, anywhere with an internet-connected computer. Computer literacy is required.
Service-learning is a credit-bearing academic experience describing a unique and specialized course design strategy that combines (a.) an academic content area, (b.) fulfilling a community-identified need through a reciprocal relationship, and (c.) intentional reflection strategies to enrich the learning experience, explore civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. At least 30% of the final course grade for every service-learning course will be informed by a community service project.
