Class Registration


It's almost time to register for classes, which is a common time when studnets question what steps to take next. There are many great resources that are available to students to make sure that you are on track for graduation.

1. Advisers: There are plenty of people located around campus who are there to help students meet their requirements. You can view the name of your advisor through Ramweb. If there is no name listed you can go to your department and ask for help. If you are undeclared, CASA (located in TILT) has advisors to help answer your questions. 

2. Professor Ratings: If you are unsure about the professor that you are choosing to spend your next semester with, there are many different sites that students use to rate the professors at CSU. One of these sites uses the survey data taken at the end of the year to compile information students can access. You can visit this website here. Other sites that rate professors are Koofers, Rate My Professor, and ULoop.  These sites are easy to find by searching CSU Professor Ratings.   

3. New Financial Aid Policy:  Be sure you are up-to-date on new financial aid policies. Policies may effect what classes you wish to register for. Visit their website for more financial aid information. 

 4. Four Year Plans Help: Making a class plan with your advisor is a good idea to get a look at what your next few years in college will look like. It will also help to see what a good class load will be each semester. It is important to know that these plans will change because the classes will not always be available each semester. Something to keep in mind is which semesters you might want a lighter load. For example you may want a lighter your last semester of college or during a particular challenging semester.

5. Know Your Registration Time and Date: Check out the class schedule when it becomes available to map out what classes you will want to take the next semester. If possible, be ready to register as soon as your registration date and time allows. If a student registers the day they are able to register it will give them more opportunity to register for classes that they need.

CSU registration begins April 4th and continues depending on the amount of credits each student has already obtained.
