Your Easy Guide to Priority Registration Advising

12 Apr

So it’s finally your week for advising during priority registration season. You’re probably thinking, “How am I going to get everything I need in just 15 minutes?” Remember that during this time, they will only discuss your courses for next semester, and the appointment will go much better if you come prepared. Here’s my checklist so you can quickly make sure you are ready to go.

  • Check out classes on UAccess and put them into your shopping cart, or make a list
  • Have backup courses/times selected and add them to your list as well
  • Figure out what questions you have. For example: Am I eligible to take these courses? Do I need to take any pre-requisites or co-requisites? Will I be registered in enough units? Will I graduate on time?
  • The morning of your appointment: gather your lists and questions and any paperwork that you need. Also, remember to bring some sort of writing utensil in case you need to jot anything down.
  • Show up about 10-15 minutes early for your appointment to ensure that you get the most out of your meeting and do not delay the schedule.

Priority registration can be somewhat stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Put just a few minutes into preparation, and you will minimize stress and maximize the usefulness of seeing your advisor. Good luck with registration!
