You’ve been accepted, you’ve made a financial plan, and now it’s time to register for classes. But how do you know where to start? Consider these tips when you’re registering for the fall semester:
- Start with General Education classes. Even if you know which major you’d like to pursue, it’s a good idea to begin your freshman year with a few introductory courses.
- Talk to an adviser. Most incoming students are assigned an academic adviser. This person can give you more in-depth information about the course catalogue and help you plan ahead so you don’t miss any infrequently offered classes.
- Look up the professor. Talk to current students to find out what classes and professors they really enjoyed.
- Carefully consider your schedule. If you’re more of a night owl, it might not be the best idea to schedule an 8:00 a.m. class. Take study and travel time, as well as jobs or other extracurricular activities, into account when you’re planning your schedule.
