2 Tips for Registering for Classes February 12, 2010Posted by Barbara Nixon in advising, success.

If I could give you one tip for signing up for classes that would make your life so much easier it would be to REGISTER ON TIME! All students get to register for classes (via WINGS) on different dates. The one thing in common is that no matter what day you register the registration opens up at 3 a.m. My advice, wake up, already be signed in to WINGS and be ready to register when the clock hits 3. Classes fill up fast so if you wait until morning you run a huge risk of not getting the classes you want. Remember you aren’t the only person signing up. There are about 18,000 other people trying to get the classes they want, too.
A second tip to signing up for classes is to know what you’re signing up for before 3 a.m. In your WINGS account you can go ahead and search all the classes available. Look at days and times and pick out a few incase your first choice is taken. Write down the class, professor’s name, day and time and the location. Have the list with you when you register, and you won’t have to waste time looking for classes.
