Hello First Years and Transfers!
The time has come – advising for the Fall semester is here, and it’s time to make your schedule for the start of sophomore year. You can refer to First Year Mentor Kaitlynn’s blog on how to make the perfect schedule, but here we are going to talk about the steps you need to take to register for classes here at SSU for Fall 2017.
There are a few things you need to do before you can register for classes:
- Plan a Schedule: log into your Navigator and see what classes are being offered for the fall that you need to take. You can check what your requirements are in your degree tracker. Know that this is just a preliminary plan, as things may change when it actually comes time to register. Sometimes the classes you want fill up, so make a back up plan too. Take your number one choices, and add them to your shopping cart. To do this, click the green “select” button on the course, then the green “next” button and boom – it’s in your shopping cart!
- Meet With Your Advisor: this is probably the most important step in registering for classes. Your advisor will check over the schedule you have planned to make sure that it will work for you and fulfill the requirements you need to fill. They will then give you an ACCESS CODE. You cannot register without your ACCESS CODE. This string of numbers needs to be entered into navigator before you can click the register button and be enrolled into classes.
- Check Your Registration Dates and Times: To know when you are supposed to register, you need to know how many credits you will have completed by the end of this semester. <30 credits = Freshman, >30 and <60 credits = Sophomore, >60 and <90 credits = Junior, 90+ credits = Senior. It is likely you will be registering as a sophomore, so long as you completed 15 credits a semester. You need to be completing 15 credits a semester to stay on track to graduate in four years.
