It’s that time of the year again to register for classes for next semester! For some students, this is a dreaded time to try and pre-manage your time with internships, jobs, and life outside of school. I have some tips and tricks to help make registering for classes a breeze!
- Meet with your academic advisor. Your academic advisor can tell you what classes you have left to take and inform you if you are on track to graduate as scheduled! If you know what classes you need to take, it is helpful to make an appointment regardless so that you are at ease when you go to register. Make an appointment here!
- Look up the classes and CRN numbers in advance. Registering for classes can sometimes be a battlefield. With small class sizes, spots can get taken fairly quickly. By writing down the CRN numbers, you can quickly input them into the slots when you go to register at your designated time.
- Have a backup plan. If you have several electives to choose from, prioritize your first, second, and third choices in case the spots have filled up.
- Know your registration time and check your status. Make sure that you are all squared away as far as any outstanding payments that you may owe, or anything that is overdue that may prevent you from registering. Your academic advisor is able to inform you of your registration time, but you can also check your time and status by looking under MyFIT, under Online Information System/Student/Registration.
