STEPS TO TAKE BEFORE REGISTRATION PERIODS OPEN
- Review the Course Schedule Students are encouraged to begin reviewing course offerings online as soon as they become available.
This allows you to be aware of any prerequisites for courses and any courses that require departmental approval. Reviewing times and locations as early as possible allows you to get a head start on planning your schedule for the next semester.
- Meet With Your Academic Advisor All students need meet with an academic advisor prior to the registration period.
If you have already declared a program of study, an advisor can assist you with course selection, specific degree plan requirements, and will keep you informed of academic policies and procedures.
If you have not declared a program of study, set up an appointment with an advisor by visiting the Academic Advising Center at the Lightner Center or by calling 956.882.7362. A program of study helps guide you, semester by semester, as you work towards completing your certificate or degree.
