You may follow this link or watch the video at the top of the page for a tutorial on planning your schedule.

Once you have completed that task, you can determine what the next logical steps are for classes. Make a list of these on the corresponding semester’s classes.

In DAWGS, you can see what is available for classes.

  1. Login to DAWGS
  2. Choose Class Schedule
  3. Choose Search by term

Write down CRN in the corresponding box. Take this to your faculty advisor to discuss your choices and obtain your Alternate PIN for registration.

If you attend a workshop, advising staff will walk you through the entire process so you know what you have taken and what you still need.  This allows you to keep track of your progress, for semesters to come. You will leave the workshop with a schedule in your hand, to review with your advisor.
