How to Register
For your convenience, a professional Advisor has built a portion of your Fall 2015 schedule for you based on course need and availability. It is advised that you do not adjust the courses currently on your schedule as they have been hand-selected for you. Please use the instructions below to add at least one more course to your Fall 2015 schedule. Be sure to register for enough courses to bring your unit total to at least 12 units. 12 is the minimum amount of units to be considered full-time. If you are not on planning on being a full-time student please contact an Academic Advisor to discuss being a part-time student. Important: Some students have been preregistered for the maximum amount of units they are able to take this semester. This is appropriate for some majors. You can check how many units you are preregistered for by looking at your number of "Total Hours" on the Registration Entry page. You can learn how to find this number in the steps below. If this number matches the maximum amount of units you can take this semester according to your Admit Status (found at the top of your registration guide) you will not be able to register for another course this semester. Please contact Academic Advising if you have any questions.

NOTE: You can now see every open section of the course you searched. If you ever see a "View" button in the "Requirements" column, be sure to click on it. This will show you any special requirements you may need in order to add that particular section.
9. In the "Dates" column, you can see when the class begins and when it ends. We recommend only taking courses that go the full duration of the semester, but students can take up to one class that only meets for the first half of the semester and one that only meets for the second half. In the "Days" column, you can see which days of the week that class meets. "R" represents Thursday. Lastly you can see what time the class begins and what time it ends.

10. Course Details:
- ENG123 A is a semester long, in classroom, course.
- ENG123 AE is a HYBRID course. Half online, half in person. Its is also E1 meaning that it meets for only the first 8 weeks of the semester. When ever a course takes up two lines like this is is likely a hybrid course.
- ENG123 BE is an ONLINE course. E1 means that is during the first 8 weeks of the semester. 100% online. "TBA" in the Date and Time columns almost always indicates that this course will be online. First-time Freshman should not take this type of course.
