First, you'll need to look up your registration information on MyPoint. You need to meet with your advisor before your registration time, or you won't be able to sign up for any classes! You should print out two copies of your Degree Progress Report (one to keep, one for your advisor), which is a complete list of courses you've taken or are currently taking, grades you've received, and the GDR and major/minor requirements that those courses satisfy. The DPR also lists your major and minor, and your assigned advisor or advisors. You should look over the DPR and see which requirements you need to fulfill. Any requirement that is not complete will have either a "NO" or a minus sign (-) next to it. Begin with those.
Then, you'll want to make sure you've declared any additional majors or minors you plan to complete. Go to the appropriate office and complete any necessary paperwork. The more information you and your advisor have available, the better you can plan your academic future.
Once you have determined what you still need to take, you'll need to find courses that fit your schedule. To do that, you'll need to consult the Timetable.
You can use the pull-down menus to select a particular term (Fall, Spring, Winterim, or Summer), a specific curriculum (such as Biology or Communication), or a specific type of course such as a course in a particular General Education category, or only 300-level courses). Once you've selected courses you think you might like to take, check to see whether the course has any prerequisites. For example, in order to take Comm 321, you need to have completed Comm 221. Also check to see whether you need special permission before you can register for a course. It will have a "PR" next to the course or section number. If a course is marked PR, you must ask the instructor of the section you want to give you permission to register for the course. You won't be able to register for the course without that permission. Normally, you can just send an e-mail to the instructor of the section you want when making that request, but be certain to specify the section you want (if there are multiple sections) and include your student identification number when you make the request.
You'll search the Timetable for the courses you need to satisfy your GDR, major, and/or minor requirements and find ones that fit together into a schedule. Then you'll want to find ALTERNATE courses that you can take in case the ones you want fill up before your registration time, always checking to see which requirements they satisfy. Use your Catalog to check about requirements that don't show up on your DPR (if you're considering adding a minor, for example). AFTER YOU'VE DONE THIS WORK, you're ready to see your advisor!
