Your Registration Planner

Step 3:

Before you arrive at Orientation, you should know which courses you need to take in your first semester. You can arrange your schedule in your Planner, and/or Register for those courses. We will be helping with any questions/comments/concerns at Orientation.

Boston University students register online through the Student Link. The Planner is an online tool that allows you to arrange a schedule of courses and their times before actually registering. This means that nothing in the Planner is permanent until you actually choose to register for courses, and even after you register, you can still change things around.

So, do not feel nervous about playing around with your Planner, or even registering for courses. You cannot do anything bad, or mess anything up, but you can get a jump start on the registration process, and be better prepared when you arrive at Orientation.

You will access the Planner through the Student Link: www.bu.edu/studentlink

  • Click on the table titled “Academics” (it is orange)
  • You can search for courses one of two ways: either click on University Class Schedule option or on Registration
  • Enter your username and Kerberos password (if you have yet to sign up for these, please click here)
  • Choose “Reg Options” under the Spring 2019 semester
  • Click on “Plan”
  • Click on “Add”
