Step 3: Registering for Courses

Registration Guide

Tips for Building a Semester Schedule

  • Identify as many course selections as possible.
  • Choose courses only listed under the campus you will be attending. If you want to enroll in courses from more than one campus, contact the Enrollment Services Office.
  • Balance your schedule: Classes meet for varying amounts of time: usually 50 minutes three times a week, 75 minutes twice a week, or once a week for three hours.
  • Verify you are registering for the type of class you want, i.e. traditional face-to-face, blended, online, ITV, etc.
  • List the course name and #, section #, day and time of the classes you wish to take. Determine secondary choices in case primary class choices are unavailable.
  • List the date range of courses.
