How do I know if there is a hold on my account? How do I release that hold?
be viewed on your DegreeWorks audit. The
phone number for the department you’ll need to contact is listed right next to
the hold. Please work on clearing it up
What classes should I be taking next semester for my major/minor/core?
your questions will be answered during Registration Basics! You will also be instructed to consult your
DegreeWorks audit, InfoBear, and any available Advising handouts. Peer Advisors
are a great resource if you have additional questions after Registration
Does my Advisor sit with me to pick out classes?
No. After attending Registration Basics, you will
know how to draft your own schedule. Then, during your individual appointment
with your Advisor, you will submit your draft for review. If everything looks
good, your Advisor will clear you for registration!
Can a Peer Advisor help me draft my schedule?
attending Registration Basics you will have the knowledge to draft your own
schedule! If you need a little extra
assistance, however, you can make an appointment with a Peer Advisor. When meeting with a Peer Advisor, you should
arrive as prepared as possible. You’re
in charge of the advising process!
Where can I find the Registration Form and Schedule Worksheet?
campus intranet, click on “Departments” then navigate to “Registration
Tools.” You will find many helpful
resources on this page including the Registration Form, the blank Schedule
Worksheet, course descriptions, etc!
Where can I find the Core Curriculum Advising Guide (I want to know
which courses count for more than one core requirement or “double dip”)?
From the campus
intranet, click on “Departments,” then navigate to “Core Curriculum,” then click
on “Core Curriculum Documents.” Where
can I find descriptions of First Year Seminars? From the campus intranet, click on
“Departments” then navigate to “First Year Seminars.”
Is it possible to get from one class to the next in 15 minutes?
It is absolutely
possible to get across campus in 15 minutes.
However, be aware that racing from one end of campus to the other may be
stressful with weather, classes that run late or start early, etc. Plan accordingly and map out your route
between classes before the start of the next semester.
Is it better to schedule classes back-to-back or with breaks
what works best for you – we have early classes, later classes, even evening
and online classes, etc. If you are a
student that would prefer to have just one or two classes a day with plenty of
study time in between, make a schedule that fits those needs. If you are a student that knows waking up
early or staying in class until 5:00pm will be a problem, then try to avoid
that. Just remember that flexibility is
key when it comes to registration!
Have you taken a class with Professor (insert name) before?
helpful and mature question might be “What is Professor (insert name)’s
teaching style?" Strive to make
decisions about classes based on your strengths and preferences as a learner. It’s your life, and you have to decide what is
right for you and what will help you be most successful.
I have a job, will I be able to build a schedule that works for me?
students have on-campus or off-campus jobs. If you want a schedule that works for you, it
is best to plan ahead and have alternates ready. Be sure to register as soon as registration
opens because some classes do fill up fast!
Should I take summer classes?
great question! There are many things to
consider: financial aid, academic support, the requirements of your major(s),
your learning style, etc. Set up a
meeting with your Advisor to discuss your options!
