As the end of the semester draws closer, registration for the new semester approaches.
Academic advisers saw over 300 students this week and will continue to take appointments. Registration for spring classes opens Oct. 30.
Academic advising recommends that students schedule their advising appointment as soon as possible, regardless of any holds on their account.
“Advisers can also provide students with information about campus resources that may help them get the holds removed,” said Cynthia Collins, director of academic advising. “Remember, students should register as soon as possible to ensure they are getting their preferred schedule. Courses will close in many majors.”
The College Scheduler is a feature in its second year that allows students to plan out their schedule prior to registration. Students can compare schedules of different class combinations to create a customized schedule.
First time college students with less than 30 credit hours completed must visit with an adviser in order to register for classes. Additionally, students with less than a 2.1 GPA must see an adviser prior to registering for classes.
Students are encouraged to act now to reserve their appointment. If you have problems scheduling an appointment, you can visit the advising office for assistance or call the office at 727 873-4511 and press option four for assistance.
