It's Halloween; time to plan for spring:  Just as the leaves are turning on campus and there's a slight chill to the air, it's time to start thinking ... SPRING!  Spring term pre-registration will be conducted during the week of November 7–11.  You can plan ahead for this process by:

  • Reviewing the classes that will be offered (the schedule is posted here). 
  • Checking the course descriptions in the Catalog to be sure you have met the prerequisites for each course.
  • Consulting your Plan of Study or Graduation Checklist to see which requirements remain for your degree completion.
  • Retrieving any forms you may need.
  • Making an appointment to meet with your adviser to discuss registration.  If you have two majors, consult with advisers for both majors.
  • Your adviser(s) must sign your enrollment card before it can be turned in during pre-registration week.
  • As registration approaches, be sure to double-check the schedule of classes to see if changes have occurred.
