What is a RUN Number?
A 6-digit Registration User Number (RUN) is required for many students – especially new students – at the request of their college or department.
The RUN is unique to each student and will be different from term to term (with the exception that the RUNs for a Summer term and for the immediately succeeding Fall term should be the same since advance registration for both of those terms starts at the same time). Students who are required to have a RUN will typically receive the RUN at the time of advisement for the upcoming advance registration term(s), so such students should be sure not to skip those advisement appointments.
The RUN comes into play when you log into SalukiNet and go to the "Self-Service" area to use the online registration system. Once you actually attempt to do any class adds, drops, or other registration changes, you will be prompted to enter that RUN before the system will permit such transactions. You will only need to enter the RUN once per SalukiNet Self-Service session, so if you attempt multiple registration transactions within one session, you will not be forced to enter the RUN multiple times. In a subsequent SalukiNet Self-Service session, you will need to enter the RUN again.
If you change your major to one in which you will not be required to have a RUN, you should no longer be prompted to enter a RUN, unless your new major is not yet in effect for the term for which you are attempting to register. Even if you stay in the same major, some colleges or departments that require their incoming students to have a RUN do not require their continuing students to have one; if that applies to you, you will not be prompted to enter a RUN for registration for your second and later terms.
Effective for Spring 2014 registration, nearly all undergraduate students will be required to have a RUN.
If you forget your RUN, please contact your advisor or advisement unit. Please note that the I.T. "SalukiTech" Help Desk (Computer Support Center) is not able to assist students with RUNs (though they can assist students with SalukiNet login and password issues).
