As a currently enrolled Truman student, you are eligible to register for spring 2021 courses via TruView.

If you are an international student who is studying from your home country and have internet connectivity issues, you may contact the Registrar’s Office at and we will work with you to help you enroll. We are able to enroll you on your scheduled registration day starting at 8:00a.m. if you email your desired spring 2021 course list with CRNs listed. You are responsible for clearing all holds ahead of time and ensuring that you meet all pre-requisites or test score requirements. We will reply to your email once you are registered. If we are not able to enroll you due to any registration errors, we will notify you of the errors so you can address the issues with the appropriate department(s).

To register for classes login to TruView and click on the Student tab, then on the Registration tab within the Student Data box/channel. Then click on Register/Change Schedule to enter the Registration Module and click on Register for Classes. Once registration opens on October 21, you will be able to select the Spring 2021 term and be able to use the registration tool to find classes, enter CRNs, build a schedule, and submit your registration on your assigned registration date.

Below are steps you must do before you register along with some tips and hints as you prepare for registration.  You can also find a step-by-step tutorial at

Please make sure to meet with your advisor and check your registration status BEFORE your registration time to ensure that all of your accesses are functioning properly, you have been cleared to register, and holds have been cleared.

In TruView, you should navigate to the Registration tab to prepare for registration by checking your registration status, updating student term data and completing pre-registration requirements (such as the Registration Agreements and seeing if there are any other holds on your account that need cleared to register). If you have not submitted your Registration Agreement or cleared your registration holds, you will not be able to enroll.  If you have an address verification hold, you can update your local and permanent addresses and telephone via TruView and the hold will be lifted on the hour – be sure to navigate through all of the address verification screens to submit your permanent address at the end. Make sure your advisor has cleared you for registration BEFORE your assigned registration date!  If you need technical assistance, please stop by the ITS Help Desk with a picture ID.  As always, you can contact the Registrar’s Office for assistance at or 785-4143, Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.

You can Wait List a course by selecting Wait List from the drop down menu in the Summary box.   Remember that if you receive an email that there is a seat available in a course you have wait listed for, you have 24 hours from the time that is date-stamped on the email to enroll yourself in the course or drop yourself off of the wait list.  If you do not enroll during that 24 hour period, you will be automatically dropped from the wait list.

To Browse Classes, click on the Browse Classes link, select a term, and enter a course subject in the Subject box by typing in the subject or clicking within the box for a dropdown menu. Click on Search to display courses. Hover your mouse over the title of a course and click, it will pop up a box titled Class Details for (Class  XXX).  There will be details for the course section you are looking at and a list of links to click on for more information, to buy the book, etc.

In the Advanced Search Option, you can search by the following:

       Subject

       CRN

       Keyword

       Instructor

       Subject and Course Number

       Attribute

       Level

       Buildings

       College

       Departments

       Instructional Methods

       Schedule Type

       Etc.

There are several features to Banner 9 Registration:

       Conditional Add and Drop is a feature that allows you to stay enrolled in the class you are dropping unless the other class has a seat available.  On the Register for Classes screen, just check the box next to Conditional Add and Drop (in the bottom left corner by the Submit button) if you want to keep the class in which you are enrolled if you can’t get into the class you are trying to add. Utilizing this feature is highly recommended so that you don’t drop a class without knowing that you are enrolled in the other class.

       Emailing Your Schedule – you can now email your schedule to yourself or other people.  Select Schedules and Options and you will see two versions of your schedule.  In the upper right hand corner of this box, just select the envelope icon.  You will see that your Truman email is the default email and there are boxes to enter other email addresses.

       Adding your schedule to your personal calendar – once you email your schedule to your Truman email, it will give you the ability to add your schedule to your personal calendar as a .csv file.

       Printing your schedule – you can also print your schedule immediately in a more user friendly output by selecting the printer icon in the Schedules and Options section.

Common Error Messages

Closed Course – check to see if other sections of the same course are still open or place yourself on a wait list if that is listed as an option.

Link Error – you may see “CRN Required or Co-Requisite Error”.  This means that you will need to enroll in another course at the same time you are enrolling in the first course.

Class Restriction/Major Restriction/Pre-requisite Restriction – this means that a department has limited a course to certain students.  If you believe you meet these criteria and wish to speak with someone, contact the appropriate Department Office.

Time Conflict – This means that you are attempting to enroll in a course that is at the same time as another course or overlaps another course.  You either need to drop the course or contact the appropriate instructor (s) to see about an override.

Repeat Hours Exceed or Repeat Count Exceed – this indicates you are attempting to register for a course in which you have already earned credit.  If you wish to enroll in a course for which you previously earned credit and earned a grade of D or better, you need an override from the Registrar’s Office.  Students who previously earned a C or better and want to repeat a course must wait until after the open enrollment period for the subsequent semester has ended and then contact the Registrar’s Office for the override.

Maximum hours exceed – this error message indicates you are attempting to register for more than 17 hours (undergraduate students) and 16 hours (graduate students).  There are overload fees that impact enrollment and you must get permission before being allowed to enroll in an overload.  Complete an academic appeal for an overload request by navigating through Truview -> Student Tab -> Courses & Grades -> Academic Appeals to submit your request for approval.

Student Attribute Restriction – this error message occurs when a senior tries to register for a JINS course. Seats in these courses are reserved for students who will be juniors (by cohort or credit hours) the following semester. You can request the attribute by completing the form at

There are more error messages that might pop up but these are the most common.

Note: Each Department Office may have different procedures for resolving course errors. Departments may override errors only for their own courses.
