Registering for the fall semester

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.

Do you have any registration tips?

    Greetings, I do think your blog could possibly be having web browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, great blog!

      Hi Scotty, you are correct: unfortunately, our blog platform has some limitations and is not fully compatible with the older versions of Internet Explorer. The blog is compatible with the most current versions of Internet Explorer, Safari, as well as free web browsers like Firefox and Chrome. Thank you for keeping an eye out for us!
