Tips for Scheduling
Follow the academic plan that you received in orientation. Meet with an academic counselor regularly to ensure you are making progress in your major. Plan ahead. Start planning your schedule at least the night before your enrollment window opens. For the best chances to get into the classes you need/want, make sure that you enroll as soon as your enrollment window opens up. When setting up a schedule, have a weekly calendar in front of you and lay out how the classes will look for the week. Leave yourself time for lunch and studying. Try not to schedule too many classes one after another—you may lose focus after being in class for such a long time. Also, if you do have classes backto-back, look at the locations of the classes and make sure you can get to the next class within 10 minutes. When planning your schedule, plan for the possibility that the class will fill up before you enroll. Choose alternate classes or discussions. Know which classes take priority. Enroll in your required engineering classes first. Then enroll in writing and/or breadth classes if you can fit it in your schedule. Make sure that you look at the finals schedule to when your finals will take place. Make any needed schedule adjustments if you are concerned about the timing of your final exams.
Being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a spot in the class. Don’t rely
on waitlists—enroll in a section that has space available.
Check WebReg frequently for course cancellations or room changes.
