Select the term for which you would like to register and click the "CHANGE" button in order to view your enrollment appointment start/end dates and times.

Holds are placed on student records to indicate a specific action that needs to be taken (e.g. submit a health form, meet with an adviser, pay an outstanding balance, etc.) prior to registration.

To check for holds, follow this path in your Student Portal: Self Service > Student Center > Holds > Details

If you have a Hold on your account, click on the Hold Item. Your Holds detail will let you know why you have a hold and provide information about who to contact and what you need to do to remove it. Once it is removed, you will be eligible to enroll if you have an enrollment appointment.

As part of the Core Curriculum core, all incoming degree-seeking students are required to take COL 150, the Columba Cornerstone, which is linked with another class. These are called Learning Communities.

When you go to register for these courses, it is important to register for both classes at the same time or your registration will not go through.

To register for any course, log-in to your Student Portal and following this path: Student Center > Enroll > Select the ‘search’ button under the Find Classes section. On this page, use the dropdown on the Subject field to select Columba Cornerstone for your search.

If you want to know more information about one, click on its section name. Under enrollment information, the other course that is part of this learning community will be listed. Make note of this as you will need to register in it at the same time in order to add this Columba Cornerstone section to your schedule.

Now it is time to search, find, and add the paired learning community course to go with the Columba Cornerstone course. Use the dropdown Subject field and the text box for Course number to search for the course you need to add. Select your paired course and add it to your cart. Follow the steps to complete your enrollment.

If you need assistance with registration, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (914) 633-2497 or email registrar@iona.edu and someone will be glad to assist you.

To add, drop, swap, or view your schedule of classes, use the menu item "Manage Classes."

You are attempting to schedule more than one course at the same time.

Learning Community Errors

If you attempt to register for one course in the learning community and not the other, the registration will error. You have to register both Learning Community classes at the same time.

Your Student Portal will also prompt you if the learning community courses you are attempting to register for are not linked.

You may wish to drop classes from your schedule to make room for new selections. Click on the Drop tab at the top of the page.

  • Select the class(es) you want to drop and then click "DROP SELECTED CLASSES."
  • Confirm your selection and then click "FINISH DROPPING."
  • Review the results page to verify your classes were dropped successfully.

Undergraduate degree-seeking students may drop courses from their registration but cannot remove the last remaining course (a course with minimum of 3.0 credits).

If you chose to completely drop your schedule, new students must contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office.

The Swap feature allows you to replace one course already on your schedule with another without having to drop the first one. This is especially helpful when you only have one course on your registration that you want to replace. Click on the "Swap" tab at the top of the page:

    Select the class you want to swap from your schedule and search for the replacement class.
    Confirm your selection and then click "Finish Swapping."
    Review the results page to verify your classes were swapped successfully.

The swap function cannot be used to replace a two-course COL 150 Learning Community already on your schedule with a new one. This is because the Swap function can only process one course swap request at a time – and Learning Community pairs must be registered together from your shopping cart. Please Drop your existing two-course Learning Community first and then register for a new two-course pair.

To view your class schedule, log-in to your Student Portal and follow this path: Self Service > Student Center > Academics > Class Schedule.
