October: Freshman Students will Register for their Spring Classes

The JLC Student Success Center AdvisingOne of the most important variables of a successful student is the ability to understand the systems in which they operate. Students on a college campus need to be aware of deadlines for assignments, locations of on-campus resources, and how to navigate critical processes such as spring course registration.

Beginning next week, freshmen all across campus are meeting with their academic advisors to select and plan their course load for the Spring semester. We have announced this in class, sent out e-mails, and hung flyers in the halls.

The question is: Does your freshman know what he/she needs to do?

Your to-do list:

  1. Ask your student if he or she has signed up for an advising appointment with his or her academic advisor. If the answer is anything other than “yes,” please help us spread the message. Registration for freshmen begins on October 31st. Students cannot register if they have not met with their advisor!

  2. Make sure your student knows the exact time and date of his/her registration. An email will be sent from the Registrar’s Office with this information.

We created a video tutorial for students to navigate how to select and pre-register for courses. If you’re interested in seeing the process for selecting courses in WebAdvisor, watch the video below. (It shows last semester’s information, but the process is the same).
