Admission advisors urge early registration for fall

Students looking to register for the fall semester are encouraged to do so before classes are full and fewer options available.

The fall semester begins Monday, August 14. Students that wait until the end of the summer season often lose out on creating their optimal schedule.

“Since registration opened in March, new and returning students have been registering for many of our most popular offered times,” said Devin Stroman, Coordinator of Student Services. “Students that wait for too long will have less choices.”

Late registration may affect a student’s desired graduation schedule because of class rotation offerings.

“Students that are not proactive about signing up early are often having to take a course or two during an extra summer session and sometimes have to wait an entire extra semester before graduating,” said Stroman.

Advisors in the Office of Admissions are available Monday through Friday for new, returning students, and fully online students who need assistance with class registration, financial aid, on-campus housing information, and registration for new student orientation.

“We know that the most successful students are those that come in early in the process,” said Stroman. “We encourage students to stay ahead of the game and plan early.”
