I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks this semester is flying by! As this semester comes to an end, registering for next semester’s classes will inevitably come up. Everyone wants to make the perfect schedule that will make their semester awesome.
Before you can even consider registering for classes, there are a few quick tasks on MyCUInfo that you need to get out of the way each semester. You will need to update your contact information. This will include your addresses, phone numbers, and emergency contacts. After this, you will need to accept the Terms and Tuition Fee Agreement and Disclosure form by checking the “I accept” Box at the bottom of the page. If you are an undergraduate student from Colorado, you will also need to authorize the College Opportunity Fund. Lastly, there will be an option to include some student involvement opportunities. These include College of Music Concert Card, The Herd Student Membership, Program Council VIP Pass, and many more opportunities!
Moving onto course enrollment now, you will want to clear any holds on your account. Holds will prevent you from enrolling in classes. After you complete this, the next thing you will want to do is find out when your enrollment dates are. You can find this on MyCUInfo. The sooner you register for classes, the better chances you will have of getting into more popular classes. When searching for what classes to take, your advisors and degree audits will be your best friend. It is always a good idea to look through the course catalog and find classes that you need to take and that interest you.
Look out for the posters about Sandwiches-N-Schedules. Here you will be able to get one-on-one advising from both your advisors and peer advisors. Creating your schedule and signing up for classes has never been more fun! You can also clear any possible holds on your account by attending this event.
When making your schedule, you ought to consider your personal habits. If you’re not a morning person, maybe that 8AM class isn’t the best idea. If you have a job or internship in mind, you can also create your schedule so that you have time to go work during the week. I would also consider talking to older students about their experiences with certain professors. This way you know what professors should be at the top of your list.
My last piece of advice would be to download the MyCUInfo app. With this app, you will be ready to enroll in your classes right away when it comes around. Just add the classes you want to your cart before your enrollment window. This way, as soon as your window opens, you can enroll right away. This is a great advantage because you can do this from wherever you are on your phone. You don’t have to be tied down to your computer, and it only takes a minute or two.
Enrolling for the Fall semester may seem like a daunting task, but the good thing is that you have a lot of resources available to you. Make sure to talk to your advisors if you have any questions at all. Or if you just feel like saying hi. They love talking to students about anything going on in their life! In the meantime, be sure to finish the semester strong and enjoy this lovely weather!
