Have the best registration EVER

While many dread the planning and prep and stress of registration, I LOVE IT.  I love being able to schedule my life and know how my following semester is going to look.  I thrive on planning and organizing so registration is my Christmas.  While I have made a post on registration every time it rolls around, there are important points to reinforce and introduce (and who wants to dig through thousands of posts):

  1. Talk to your academic advisor
    Make an appointment with your academic advisor even if you know what classes you have to take.  It is comforting to have your schedule and courses solidified by those who know best.  Also, for those who don’t know, not all courses are available to all majors – including liberal arts.  Therefore, it is best to make an appointment before you register!  Here is the link to make an appointment: http://www.fitnyc.edu/13575.asp
  2. Plan Ahead
    Once you have the classes that you are planning on taking, make up your schedule.  Map out a tentative schedule and plan out your biggest/most important/longest classes first and revolve your classes around that.
  3. Write down the CRN codes
    The CRN codes are the first things that you can type in to register for all your classes.  If you have all the CRN codes for your classes, you type them in when it’s your registration time, hit submit and you’re all set. 
  4. Be flexible
    This one isn’t the easiest, especially for me.  Sometimes you won’t get the classes you want so you have to be prepared to move your schedule around.
  5. Don’t stress
    Registration is exciting because that means you are one semester closer to graduating. Keep your chin up and know that winter break is soon!

    Hi! I’m going to be an incoming freshman in the fall and I’m trying to make a plan for my schedule. I’m looking at some classes online and under ‘days’ it says R, could you tell me what that means?
