Registering for Classes – Continuing Students

Continuing Students Have Two Easy Options to register for classes

Online via Panther Portal

After logging in to the Panther Portal, students can:

  • Register for classes
  • View/print class schedules
  • Pay tuition and fees
  • View personal information

Watch video below for steps!

Students who have issues retrieving their Panther Portal log-in information can contact the MIS department at 708.656.8000 ext. 2444 or email

Register through the Office of Admission and Records or by contacting an Academic Advisor via Panther Portal

Students who cannot register through their Panther Portal will be allowed to register manually.

Some of the reasons students cannot register online:

  • GPA below 2.0- student may need to complete a SAP appeal
  • Pre-requisite courses not completed
  • Transfer credit not evaluated
  • Open restrictions/holds

If students do not know what classes they need for their specific programs, we encourage them, to make an appointment with an academic advisor for help.  Click here to visit our Academic Advising website.



Secure a payment method!

All students planning to receive or apply for Financial Aid (FAFSA/RISE ACT) should consult with the Financial Aid office before registering for classes to ensure all proper documentation is submitted. Click here for more hours and contact information.

Students not planning on applying or receiving financial aid should be prepared to enter into a payment plan or pay in full upon registering for classes. Click here for the Spring Payment plan schedule.

Do you need to change your schedule?

Students who need to make any changes, such as dropping classes and registering for new sections, can do so via Panther Portal.

Student who cannot add or drop classes online can contact the Office of Admission and Records. Click here to visit our OAR website.

Register in Admission and Records

Students who have SAP appeals approved, Athletes, and some transfer students can register in the Office of Admission and Records using a completed Registration form. Only when it is determined that a student cannot register through their Panther Portal will they be allowed to register in the Office of Admission and Records.
