Well it is that time of year again. Time to plan ahead for next year and register for those classes. In this blog, I will give you a couple of tips that will help you with registering for classes; so you can get the classes, professors, and the times that you want.
My first and most important piece of advice is to Register early. As an award winning procrastinator myself (I pick up my award tomorrow) I have learned to follow this advice after a couple of scary moments. One example of a scary moment is when I waited to register for classes in May (after finals) for the fall semester. There were a lot of classes and professors that I wanted to take, but was not able to because the classes were all filled. It is a frustrating feeling, trying to register classes but finding all of them full. Now that semester I was able to get a full time load of classes, but if I had more progress into my degree plan that would probably not be the case. This incident made me realize I needed to register early. Now a days I make sure to check the registration schedule and register as early as possible (but I am not one of those people who wait until midnight to register…I need my sleep).
My second piece of advice is to understand how MyMav works. Now I know this sounds condescending, but it is important. I know the second time I ever used MyMav, I got confused and forgot how to use it. I mean we only use it twice a year, its understandable to forgot some of the steps. Well have no fear, we have some resources that can help you navigate MyMav. Click on MyMav Registration Instructions and Schedule Planner Instructions. Or check the video on our blog for step by step help.
My last piece of advice is to look around campus for electives. This time of year there are a lot flyers posted around campus that advertise an elective you can take. Some of them will spark your interest and you can find a fun way to fulfill your electives.
Well that’s all I got for you. Now go and register!!!
