Dear Boston College Student:
This spring, Boston College is transitioning to a new university information system called EagleApps to replace UIS. EagleApps will provide a modern user interface with richer content and an upgraded user experience.
Your first encounter with EagleApps will be through the advising and registration process for summer session and/or the fall semester. This will begin in late March and continue through the first week of June. Full details of the revised Summer and Fall advising and registration schedule are at the end of this email.
You will be using three EagleApps modules as you move through the course registration process. All modules are accessible through the Agora Portal. Following is an overview of the three modules:
The course search module is similar to the existing Course Information and Schedule (CI&S), but with more robust functionality. The public view of CI&S will remain available to those without access to the Agora Portal.
This module enables you to create two different academic plans for the semester, in order of priority, with up to ten courses in each plan (maximum of five for the summer). When the plans are complete, you will be able to run an automated check to ensure that you have the correct corequisites, permissions, and other requirements to register for these courses successfully. This will lead to a more efficient registration process on the day of your designated time slot.
If you are assigned an appointment time slot, it will appear at the top of the registration screen.
When your registration time slot opens, you may select the option to “Register Now.” If you have selected a course plan, this module will automatically place you into courses based on your selections, in order of preference, going from top to bottom. You will see which courses you have successfully been registered for, as well as why any attempts at registration were unsuccessful.
If you have not selected a course plan in advance, you may still search for and register for courses when the Registration module opens for you.
Select the video below for a quick preview of the Registration module:
To ensure a smooth transition to the new system, summer planning and registration will use EagleApps initially, and the dates of fall advising and registration have been adjusted.
Please refer to the dates below for details on the new schedule for summer and fall advising and registration.

We hope this information is helpful. We will be sending additional emails in the weeks ahead about training materials that will be available to you. Also, we encourage you to visit often the Course Registration web page at www.bc.edu/registration for further guidance and instructions as we transition to the EagleApps system.
