Beat the Line! A Few Reasons to Register Before Spring Semester Ends

Do you often wonder why classes are so hard to get into right before the start of fall semester? This is due to the fact that enrollment for summer and fall semesters starts in the spring semester.

You’ve likely gotten email about registering, but perhaps it has fallen to the wayside, buried in correspondences from your professors. But as they say, the early bird gets the worm. Those students who have read that email or known about early registration are jumping on all of the “good” classes.

Not only are current students registering early, but new students are taking advantage of many orientations that start in the spring semester. These new students are also registering very early for summer and fall courses. This causes the best class sections to fill up even quicker.

The best part is, registering early helps alleviate the stress that comes with waiting until the last minute. The earlier you register, the more time you have to get your finances in order and enjoy some free time until the next semester starts. So, see your counselor or advisor and get registered now!
