Continuing Education and Graduate Registration

Continuing Education

Students accepted to Salem State in an evening program are considered continuing education students. Continuing education students may register in courses offered through the School of Continuing and Professional Studies and through the day division. Courses taken in the day division are registered on a space available basis. A student's full-time enrollment is determined by the total number of credits for which they are registered, regardless of whether the courses are taken in the evening or day division. A minimum of 12 credits are considered full-time enrollment.


Students accepted to Salem State in a graduate program are considered graduate students. A minimum of nine (9) credits are considered full-time enrollment.

Registration Change Form





What to Have Ready

When registering for classes, you must provide:

  • the 4-digit reference number from the catalog
  • the section number from the catalog
  • your student ID number if you've taken classes with us before
  • photo ID for walk-in registration

Payment Methods

You can choose financial aid as the method of payment when you register for continuing education or graduate courses through Navigator. If you choose a walk-in registration, and intend to use financial aid to pay for your registration, you must first see the financial aid office to obtain an approval signature on your registration form. Note: If you do not receive sufficient financial aid or a loan award, you are solely responsible for all tuition and fees due.

For walk-in payments, the registrar's office only accepts debit cards (credit card payments must be made online) or check.
  • Original tuition waiver, voucher, or tuition remission form must be presented at time of registration. No refund will be processed if presented after registration is completed. These may not be applied to the cost of an institute, directed study, thesis, internship, or independent study course.
  • Changes of sections and changes of courses via online registration will require payment in full; payment credits cannot be used via self-service registration. Refunds are processed through the bursar's office.

Graduate Students and Billing

Beginning on April 14, degree-seeking graduate students may choose to pay at the time of registration or may be billed for their coursework. Upon registering for summer 2014 or fall 2014 classes (after April 14, 2014), a monthly bill will be generated. A notification will be sent to your SSU email address informing you that a bill is available through you Navigator account. No paper bills will be generated. Monthly bills are always available for viewing on the first of the month. As we are changing our systems – it is possible that language on the bill could be a bit confusing. Thus, to make it simple – summer I bills are due May 25, summer II bills are due July 25, and fall 2014 bills are due July 25. Payments can be made online through your Navigator account, in person or by mail. Nondegree graduate students and continuing and professional students will continue to pay at the time of registration.

Space Available Registration*

This registration method is for non-day students, both matriculated School of Continuing and Professional Studies and non-matriculating, who wish to register into day courses should “space be available.” This method is now administered online via Navigator rather than in years past of a two-hour time period conducted on campus. Returning students will log into Navigator to register as you would an evening course. New students will need to utilize the first time self service registration to create a Navigator account to then be able to register. Payment in full is due at the time of registration. This registration method will be available at the beginning of each semester and will end on the last day of the day school add/drop period.
