Prior to Registration

  1. Look through a brief overview of how to search and register for courses in AccessLVC.
  2. Review your Progress report in AccessLVC and consult the 4-year plan for your major, if available.
  3. Develop a tentative schedule or review existing schedule:
    •  If you have registered previously for the spring, review your schedule to see if adjustments are needed (particularly if you changed your fall schedule or changed or added majors/minors, etc.).  Add any courses needed to your tentative schedule.
    • If you did not register previously, identify possible courses to take in the spring and create a tentative schedule in AccessLVC.  Be sure to identify alternate courses in case your first choices are closed.
  4. Set up an appointment with your advisor(s) well ahead of your registration start time (posted at the top of your schedule for that term) to review your course selections. It is important that you meet with your advisor even if you have already registered for the spring.  Make any necessary adjustments to your schedule.
  5. Check for possible registration restrictions, such as advisor registration restrictions and Business Office holds (if applicable, Business Office holds will be posted prior to the start of registration.  Please call 717-867-6300 to address the hold). If you registered for the spring previously and have not paid your existing balance, your registration will be dropped prior to the start of registration.

If you are unable to login to AccessLVC, please contact the IT Services Help Desk at extension 717-867-6072 or at If you cannot be on campus for registration due to student teaching or internships you may register on paper with your first major advisor’s signature through the Registrar’s Office. You are encouraged to drop off your registration form several days in advance of your registration start time.



  1. Submit your spring registration on or after your assigned registration start time. Please note that this is a beginning time. You should not skip class, register during class time, or miss important meetings in order to register. 
  2. If your desired courses are closed, register for alternatives. If needed, you may waitlist yourself for your first choice of courses.

Note: Registration for independent study, directed study, advanced study or research, internship, and tutorial study courses must be done on paper through the Registrar’s Office.
