Time to Register!
We want to know… how are things going? With the fall semester well under way, the advising staff wants to remind you that we are here to help you if you have any questions or concerns about any of your classes or anything else! We can offer tips, suggestions, and refer you to campus resources to help you with academic AND personal concerns.
We also want to help you plan for Spring Registration. As crazy as it sounds, Spring 2020 registration is just around the corner. Please call or visit the Navigate website to schedule an appointment with your assigned advisor.
Times fill quickly, so schedule today!
Spring 2020 Registration Start Dates
Be sure to check RAMweb to find your specific registration date and access time. Don’t forget you will need to complete “Registration Ready” before attempting to register!
November 16—Plan Ahead Available
November 17—Priority, DVM, GR
December 2—First Years
Students may have an advising code that they need in order to register for spring classes. Please schedule an appointment with your advisor if Registration Ready is saying you need to input an advising code.
Waitlist Reminder: If you try to register for a class and it’s full, you will be provided an opportunity to sign up for the
waitlist on RAMweb. If a spot opens, a notification will be sent to the you. You will then have 24 hours to register. If no action is taken, you will be dropped from the waitlist and the next student is notified. You will need to check your email at least once a day to make sure you don’t miss your 24 hour window.
You can also sign up on RAMweb (under the “Records” link) to receive an automatic text message notification. To learn how to waitlist please visit this site.
If you have any news or information you’d like to submit to an upcoming Undergraduate Psychology Newsletter, please contact Rosa Batko, Academic Success Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org

Need help with the Math Placement Exam?

If so, don’t forget that both exams are given on a “drop-in” basis in the Precalculus Center (Weber 138).
The Precalculus Center will be closed Nov. 23 – Nov. 27 and during finals week.
Common Registration Errors
|Error message||What it means||When you might get it||What to do|
|Class level||Only students in a certain class level (fr/so or jr/sr) can register for a given course.||PSY 292C is restricted to first and second year students; PSY 493 is restricted to seniors.||If you NEED the course, contact your advisor to request access (for PSY courses) or the home department for access (for other prefixes).|
|In addition to the lecture, you have to register for another component (lab or recitation) at the same time.||LIFE 102, CS 110, ECON 202 and CHEM 111 are examples commonly associated with this error.||Check boxes for each component PRIOR to hitting “register” or hit “view linked.”|
|Major||You don’t have the “approved” major for a class.||Some classes are restricted just to students in that major (business is an example); other classes allow non-majors to register after a certain date (HDFS 302 is an example).||Click on the class title for details about major restriction—if the class opens to non-majors at a certain date, it will tell you there.|
|Prerequisite||You fail to meet at least one prerequisite for the class.||PSY 452 is an example. It requires PSY 252 as a prerequisite.||You’ll need to take the prerequisite courses prior to registering for the course in question. If you think this is an error, contact your advisor.|
|Dept/Instructor approval||Registration for a certain class is limited and only approved on a case-by-case basis.||An example is PSY 496 (Undergraduate Research) or PSY 488 (Field Placement); both require specific permission from the Psychology Office.||If you seek access to a class requiring department/instructor approval, contact the instructor listed, the department or your advisor.|
|Stop enrollment||A department has stopped enrollment so that no one can register for the class until a problem is resolved.||Stop enrollments can happen in any department due to unforeseen changes.||Try registering for a different section of the same class, or contact the department to find out more information.|
