Fall 2019 Registration Announcements:

The Registrar's Office will be implementing waitlist capabilities on most undergraduate offerings for the Fall 2019 semester. Students will be able to register onto a waitlist once the course is full. Each night, an automated job will automatically enroll students into newly opened seats based on their waitlist priority. The automated job will not enroll a student if they are already enrolled, there is a time conflict, or if it would bring them over their maximum credit load. Students that do not meet a course's requisites will not be able to enroll themselves onto the waitlist. The current process will not work for swaps. There are several system checks departments, including reserve caps, which departments can utilize to protect their students and students who are deemed to have a higher priority for registration into a section.

Please refer to the Waitlist documentation dispersed to the colleges for Advising staff, as well as our Registration Help webpage for Student Waitlist FAQs. If you have any additional questions about the new Waitlist process please contact

Students whose major is outside of Lerner College of Business & Economics (BE) have limited access to BE courses. Non-Lerner students will only be able to register and complete up to 25 credits in their UGRD careers (excluding the Business Essentials (ACCT200, BUAD100, ECON100 and FINC200), transfer and test credit). Cross-listed courses owned by BE are also affected. This effort is to support the integrity of the University and College related to the Differential charge levied on students enrolled in BE, EG and Nursing majors.


There are several tools for advisors to use in their important role of advising UD students.

1. UDSIS Advisor Center

All advisees assigned to an advisor in UDSIS are listed on the My Advisees page in Advisor Center. Clicking the Student Details link takes you to that person's Student Center information. For additional help, see:

Advising tools (degree audit, what-if report) training is available for individual advisors or groups by request. Contact to schedule a training.

2. *Blue Hen Success

The Blue Hen Success platform is an undergraduate academic advising and student support system that combines predictive analytics, real-time data, consulting and networking to help academic advisors in their work to support students. Blue Hen Success provides advisors access to undergraduate students' academic profiles and to create advising reports/notes, appointments, messages, referrals and much more. Advisors can view associated Advisor resources.

3. Advising Views

Advising Views is a UD application that supports the academic advising process along with the Blue Hen Success(BHSC) and UDSIS, UD's student records system. Student summary information, along with completed undergraduate academic webforms and links to other advising tools are provided to authorized staff, based on their UDSIS security.

4. *Advisor Notes (UD Notes)

This legacy UD application has supported the academic advising process by recording notes, ie. communications, between advisors and advisees. All note-taking functionality for undergraduate students moved in Fall 2017 to the Blue Hen Success platform.

5. *Cognos Standard Reports

Reports listed in the Advisement section on our Cognos standard reports page support the advisement process. Cognos access is required to run these reports.
