Plan ahead. Plan ahead. Plan ahead.

  • Use the undergraduate catalog to identify courses that are needed for your major or minor.
  • Know which general education requirements (such as the ICC) you need to complete.
  • Pay attention to the sequence of courses. Is a course only offered in the Fall? in the Spring?
  • Do you have to take a certain course before you can enroll in the class? In other words, is there a prerequisite?
  • Review your degree evaluation in Homer to see which requirements have not yet been met.
  • Click on Registration Status in Homer to find out the time when you can start to register.
  • If you have holds on your account, take care of them before registration.
  • Have backup plans in case you can't get into a course that you want.

Meet with an academic advisor to discuss your plans.

  • Make an appointment to talk with your faculty advisor.
  • Take advantage of drop-in hours at the Academic Advising Center.
  • Meet with an academic advisor to prepare for meetings with your faculty advisor.

Some courses might need a course override. Be prepared for this.

  • Do some advance work by contacting the professor teaching the course to get a sense of whether you might be able to enroll.
  • Use the online course override during the registration period.

And remember:

  • Students may drop and add courses until the end of the first week of the Fall semester.
  • Continue to check Homer to see if there are openings in the classes you want.
