PLANNING YOUR SCHEDULE

Steps to Planning Your Schedule

  1. Review the program requirements for your area of study.
  2. Read the course descriptions to verify that you are eligible to take the courses you choose. Many courses are reserved for specific majors or programs. Check that you meet any prerequisite or corequisite requirements.
  3. Look up the days and times of the courses you have chosen in the Course Schedule.
  4. Complete a draft timetable to ensure that you are not scheduling more than one course in each time slot. The online registration system will not prevent course conflicts. Choose alternate courses in case the course or section you have chosen is not available.
