The next semester of college is on the horizon and it’s time to schedule classes again. Scheduling college classes is something that most students find daunting and confusing. Whether this is your first time scheduling classes or your fourth, follow these eight easy steps to make scheduling painless and stress-free.
1) Review your class options.If you've already determined your major, the college or university will make a list of classes that you must complete in order to be eligible for graduation. Check that list and pick a few classes that you know you want to take this upcoming semester. Next, check the course catalog to find which classes the college or university will be offering during the semester and see when those classes are available.
(Note: Certain classes are only offered during certain semesters, so you need to make sure you meet the requirements and take them at the appropriate time.)
If you are undecided on your major or if you're thinking about changing your major, take a few classes that spark your interest. These classes will help you determine which major or career field is right for you. These classes can also lead you to adding a minor or certificate to your major.
