- Course registration is handled directly through the NSE office. The schedule of classes is key to helping you create a schedule. Please make sure you are searching for the correct semester before you start. As visiting students, you do not need to be concerned about our General Education
requirements, so you can ignore that option.
Once you have opened a list of courses by a department, you will find a table with the following headings:
COURSE - Clicking on the course number will give you the meeting times of the course. This will help you to avoid a time conflict as you build your schedule. It also gives information on whether the course is full. This can change at any time, so do not exclude a course because it currently lists as closed. This screen also lists all lectures (LEC), discussions (DIS) and labs (ACT) required for the course.
TITLE - Clicking on the course name gives a description and format of the course. It also lists any necessary prerequisites and may list the required course texts .
CREDIT - Our courses are mostly 4 credits. In general, students take 16 credits, but 12 credits is considered full time. You may take 18 academic credits (not including HPE and HPEY courses) without it being considered an overload. If you want to take 20 credits, you must get approval for the overload from our Academic Advising office once you get here.
GEN ED - This column lists which, if any, general education requirements are covered by this course. As a visiting student, you need not be concerned with our gen ed requirements.
CONFIG - L (lecture), D (discussion), A (lab). Some classes require a lecture section AND a discussion section and sometimes a lab too, while some courses are discussion only.
Once you have chosen your courses and the necessary lecture, discussion and lab sections, please e-mail them to me and I will work on getting you registered. The quicker you do this, the better your chances of getting into a class.
