Is there a way to find out if I'm registered or not? I had problem transferring my fund so it might be reached the University a few days after the deadline. » Improve Q
You can check your status on ROSI. Go to "Personal Timetable" then "Status" at the bottom of the page. If it says "REG" then you are registered. Generally speaking if you are only a little late you can bring the proof of payment to your college's registrar office ASAP to register and shouldn't encounter too much problem, but it is best to phone your college's registrar as soon as they open to double check on that. » Improve A
