General Enrollment Information

Enrollment Procedure

Contact your major advisor and plan a program of study. Your advisor will approve courses and enrollment load. For fee purposes an undergraduate pays a flat rate at 10 or more hours.  An undergraduate is considered full time academically at 12 hours, but a normal academic load is generally 15-16 hours.  A graduate is considered full time at 9 hours both for fee purposes and academically. The advisor may enroll you or give you your advisement number to enroll.

A degree audit is continually available to all undergraduate students. An undergraduate student should apply for an official degree audit with the Degree Checking Office, 102 Russ Hall, when the student attains 85 semester hours of credit (including current enrollment).

All students must obtain a PSU password to enter the enrollment system. Students who need to reset their password should go to and click on GUS Portal in the upper right hand side of the page. On the next page click on GUS Classic. Put your student ID number in the first box. You would then click on Forgot PSU Password. A "one time use only" password code will be e-mailed to the e-mail address you have on file at PSU. You will then be instructed on how to create a new password. A password code may also be obtained from the Gorilla Geeks, Room 109, Whitesitt. New and re-admitted students should visit for instructions on setting up a password and activating their GUSMail. 

Your fees will be available through your GUS account shortly after your enrollment. Fee statements will only be printed and mailed on request of the student. See "Academic Calendar" for tuition and fee due dates.

If it is necessary for you to change your schedule after you have enrolled, you may drop and/or add classes through the enrollment system typically through the first week of classes with your enrollment advisement number. You may also contact your advisor or the Registrar's Office for assistance in dropping or adding a course. After the first week all enrollment changes must go through the Registrar's Office.

Advisor Instructions


For Advisees:


Important! Before you begin the enrollment process:

Make sure that you have your PSU student identification number and your PSU password.

Resolve any University holds (i.e. parking tickets, library fines, needed admission materials, etc.)

Review the schedule of courses available via the PSU web site and prepare a preliminary schedule to review with your advisor.


To begin the enrollment process

Make an appointment to meet with your advisor, who has the choice to enroll you on-line or provide you with your advisement number. You cannot use web enrollment if you do not have your advisement number. Advisement numbers change each semester.

Open the PSU home page:

At the top right of the page, click on "GUS Portal" and then "GUS Classic".

On the Login page, click in the PSU ID box and type your PSU student identification number.

Click in the password box and type your PSU password.

Click on the button with the words Click here to login securely.


To access the enrollment screen

Under Personal Information, click on the words Online enrollment.

Each semester, the first time that you click on the words Online enrollment, you will be asked to review your Personal Information. (HINT: A week or two before your actual enrollment day, click on on-line enrollment or your degree audit link and review your personal information so that you can make any necessary changes before enrollment day.)

If any of that information has changed, make the revisions and then click on the button with the words Update Information to update the information.

If the information hasn't changed, click on the button with the words No Changes Needed.

When you reach the On-Line Enrollment page, select the semester for which you want to enroll. (You will have a choice only when you enroll for Summer and/or Fall, not for Spring.)

Click in the Advisement Number box and type your advisement number. (HINT: This number is case sensitive. When your advisor gives you this number, be sure that you know whether each letter is upper case or lower case. Only your advisor and the staff in your major's departmental office can give you this number.)

Click on the Start Enrollment button.


Enrollment methods


You can enroll in two different ways. You can enter the course information yourself in the boxes for Department Code, Course Number, and Course Section boxes, or you can ADD courses through your Degree Audit (on the left toolbar).

To enter the course information yourself

Step 1. On the Enrollment page, open the Department Code list and select the Department Code for the first course that you want.

Step 2. Click in the Course Number box and type the course number.

Step 3. Click in the Course Section box and type the course section number, or leave this box blank to view all available sections when you click the Add button. Repeat steps 1-3 to add more courses now, or you can go to the next step to enroll in courses one by one.

Step 4. Click on the Add Classes button. One of two things will happen:

You will successfully enroll in the course (or courses) and the course (or courses) will appear in your class schedule near the top of the window.


You will not successfully enroll in one or all or the courses because of time conflicts, closed classes, prerequisites, courses that don't meet your degree requirements, or other problems. In that case, messages will appear to advise you why your enrollment was not successful. In some cases, a list of alternate sections of the course will appear, and you can select one of those sections. If the course does not meet your degree requirements, you can select a checkbox under the message and still add the course. If a course is closed, the system might ask if you wish to be added to a wait list for the course; however, not all courses have wait lists. If you select to proceed with any courses from the list of messages, click the Add Classes button. If you don't select any courses, click the Back to Enrollment button.

Step 5. After you complete your enrollment, click on the End Enrollment button. Keep your advisement number in case you decide to make changes to your schedule at a later time.

Step 6. Click on the words Quit GUS.

Step 7. Close the browser or follow the on-line instructions to remove your personal information from the computer if you are not using your own personal computer.


To enroll through your Degree Audit

On the Enrollment page, select Degree Audit on the left toolbar.

Step 1. For each course you would like to add, click on the check box to the right of the course.

Step 2. Once all courses are selected, click on "Show Selected Courses Schedule" located next to the Icon Legend box. The course sections for the courses selected will populate.

Step 3. Click "Enroll" for the section you want (this must be done individually for each course). The course will be added to your schedule unless the system detects a warning message. The warning message will be displayed along with additional instructions for moving forward.

Step 4. Continue to enroll in courses until you are satisfied with your schedule.

Step 5. From the audit, you may then print a PDF of your schedule.

Road Map

The PSU Road Map is an academic planning tool that allows students and advisors to create a term-by-term course plan to degree completion. Students easily place required courses across terms/semesters and academic years planning a path to graduation. This application will help meet academic goals and complete requirements successfully and in the desired timeframe. The degree audit is integrated into the Road Map showing completed and remaining courses for clear planning.  

So why use this application?  Easy. To determine how you will spend your time at PSU, to have a plan for all required courses, and to know when you will earn your degree. 

Learn how the PSU Road Map works by watching our walk-through video
