Spring Registration Begins February 9th

It seems like just yesterday (or, really, last month) since we started Winter Quarter. The time to register for Spring 2015 will be here soon!

Here are important dates to know for Spring Quarter registration, as well as some useful tips for
making registering less stressful:

Important Registration Dates for Spring 2015

  • Feb. 9, 2015 - Veteran and Work Force Education Registration Begins
  • Feb. 10, 2015 - Currently Enrolled and Returning Student Registration Begins
  • Feb. 23, 2015 - New Student Registration Begins
  • Mar. 9, 2015 - 2nd STEP Payment Due

Tip #1: Know Your Registration Time & Date
You can check your individual registration appointment online. You'll want to know how soon you can log-in for the best chance at your first-choice classes and sections. Be aware that you will only be able to register for Spring classes at or after your assigned registration date & time. 

You can also use this service to locate your academic advisor's name (see tip # 3).

Tip #2: Have a List of the Classes You Want Ready to Go (Bonus Points for Having a Few Backup Choices)

It's much easier to register stress-free if you have your list of classes you want ready ahead of time. Having a few alternate choices if your first picks are full (or have been changed) is a very good idea as well. Your advisor can help you build a good list of classes, and you can also use the Quarterly Class Schedule and the Online Schedule Planner to help you plan.

Make sure to note down all the information that will help you sign up for the class (class #) and help you confirm that the right class was added to your schedule later (class name, days of the week it meets, time, instructor's name if available).

If using the online copy of the Class Schedule isn't convenient for you, you can pick up a print copy of the Spring 2015 schedule at the Reference Desk (until we run out of copies). You can also visit Holman Library and use our public-use computers to access the Green River website, even if you are not a student this current quarter.

Tip #3: If You're Not Sure Which Classes to Pick, Talk with Your Academic Advisor
Advisors are available to help you choose the best classes for your needs (and to give advice on those classes that might be required). If you'd like some advice, it's a great idea to make an appointment with your advisor! You can find out who your advisor is by looking up your registration appointment - your advisor's name will also be listed if you have one.

Once you have your advisor's name, you can look them up on Green River's Contacts Page and figure out the best way to contact them. If you don't have an advisor listed, the best place to start is to talk with Green River's Advising Center in the Lindbloom Student Center (LC), room 126.

Good luck with your registration, and if you have questions about finding class schedules, locating contact information for advisors, or locating your registration time, don't forget you can visit the Reference Desk at the Holman Library-- we're happy to help you get started!
