School Me Saturday 3/18/23-time to sign up for next semester



Are you sure?

Didn’t the semester just start?

Yes, depending on your college or university, class selection starts for the next semester/quarter early.

And when I was at Creighton there was a mad dash to sign up to ensure that there was room for all the people who wanted to take a particular class.

The internet makes it easier and harder at the same time.

You have to remember the password. And read about all the classes you want to take and decide which classes would be best for your major.

And meet with your advisor.

And decide which class to take next.

I’ve been lucky. I’ve only had to choose three times in the last several years.

Otherwise, I have followed a set path in the classes that would get me to my degree fastest.

There may be some wiggle room timing of classes, especially in a larger university. Or you could decide to take a semester off.

But, unless you’re a morning person, do not sign up for 0800 classes. You probably won’t like that. Unless it is the only time the class is offered. If so, make sure you get a good night’s sleep the night before.

And as an adult learner, you may have to pick classes that correspond with your shifts.

Evening classes and even weekend classes are offered.

My advice is to talk to your advisor. They may be able to tell you the best path to take.

I wish I had listened to my advisor when they cautioned against taking statistics AND economics in the same 6-week block. But I was in a hurry to finish and I had four classes left to take for the next 3 quarters.

I counsel people not to do that.

But the good night’s sleep advice?

Definitely do that.
