How to Stay Sane this Registration

12 Apr

Registration, one of the worst times of the semester. I’m not over exaggerating; registration sucks.

I would say don’t be scared, but I don’t want to lie to you. What if you don’t get the classes you want? What if your professors suck? What if you miss the date?

Although registration is terrifying, there is a way to stay sane. You can be scared but also keep your cool.

  1. SHOPPING CART

This is the most important thing you can do. Although you can’t technically register until your registration date, you can ACTIVELY ADD courses to your cart right now. This means you can go into UAccess and add the classes you want into a queue. You can’t register for them yet, but you sure can have them on ‘file’ for the hectic 6am morning of registration. This will limit your anxiety to just clicking the ‘register’ button on the day of registration.

Add them now, you won’t have to work as hard morning of registration.

  1. RATE MY PROFESSOR

Has anyone had a really terrible professor? Like a really bad professor? Well, before you add classes to your shopping cart, hop on ratemyprofessor.com to see what professors are teaching the courses you want to take. This will help calm you down, knowing you have great professors teaching the courses you need/want. More often than not, there will two or three different professors teaching the same course, so you’ll know you have registered for the best professor possible.

  1. 5:50 AM

SET YOUR ALARM FOR 5:50 AM FOR THE DAY OF REGISTRATION. I kid you not, 10 minutes is a perfect amount of time to prep for the 6 AM chaos. You can click the ‘register’ button at 6AM, so you need to make sure you are ready by then. SET A REMINDER IN YOUR CALENDAR THE SUNDAY BEFORE TO REMIND YOU TO SET YOUR ALARM FOR THE 6AM MORNING. Make sure you remind yourself to register. I’ve forgotten many times. HA. So trust me.

this will be you for 15 minutes on the Monday of registration. LOL

So, my friends, I wish you the best of luck registering.

May all your classes be open and your professors be amazing.
