Procrastinator-friendly Registration Tips

Getting ready for registration can be stressful– especially if you’ve been busy binge-watching new episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, working your days away, or celebrating the warm weather (we can’t blame you!) Whatever was fueling your procrastination, there is no need to worry. We’ll break down registration advice into tweet-sized tips to make registration prep almost as easy to do as it is to doze off in your 8 a.m. (Kidding, professor!)

Registration is early this year, beginning March 23 (AKA the Monday after spring break.) Check your email for your registration time.

If you can’t meet an advisor in person, APAS is the next best thing and the perfect starting point for class planning

APAS is as easy to use as a stoplight. Requirements in green are good to go, while red ones alert you to classes that still need planning.

Advisors can also answer many quick questions via email– make sure to include your student ID #!

Not a morning person? Change the time range option in Class Search to find classes that fit your sleep (and life!) schedule.

Feeling stressed out? Here are some cute baby animals to look at before you continue planning.

If the class you need is full, join the waitlist & show up to the first day of class anyways! Seats can open when students are no-shows.

Need one more credit? Check out departments like PE, EDHD, and PUBH for good options.

Even germaphobes will want to “double dip” thanks to the classes that knock out two (or more) lib eq requirements. Find them here!

Still overwhelmed with all the class planning tools on OneStop? There’s a blog for that!

Good luck and happy planning!
