Step 10: Register for Classes

Before you register for classes, make sure you have a basic understanding of the courses you'll need to take this semester: 

  • Be sure to review the Core Curriculum requirements. They are required for all undergraduate students, regardless of your major. They cover six different areas for a total of 44 units.
  • Major requirements will be covered in the Webtrack video specific to your major (please see Step 7: Complete Webtrack Advising). For additional information on your specific major requirements, you can also reference the program page for your major.

When you're ready to search for classes, go to the Schedule of Classes. Select "Spring 2020" from the dropdown menu.

select spring 2020

On the next screen, you can find courses based on the course number or using the filters on the side. This Webtrack video explains how to find specific classes.

The course numbers indicate the class level for which the course is primarily intended:

  • 100-199: First-Year
  • 200-299: Sophomore
  • 300-399: Junior
  • 400-499: Senior
  • 500 and above: Graduate students

In order to be considered a full-time student, you must be enrolled in 12 or more unit hours per semester.

During orientation (January 16-17, 2020), you will have the opportunity to meet with a faculty adviser during the "Orientation to Your Major" session. Your adviser will be happy to review your spring 2020 class schedule, and to answer any questions you might have about your schedule. Don't forget to register for orientation
