Are you over long lines and full classes? To avoid these sticky situations, you should register early! The fall semester will be here before you know it, and you don’t want to fall behind (see what we did there) on making the perfect schedule.
Do you need some convincing? Here are some reasons why you should register early for Fall 2017!
1. Skip the long lines in advising.
Who has time to wait in a long line? Nobody! Since our offices are not as busy in the summer, you’ll have more time to talk with advisors about your schedule. So take advantage by visiting us now before everyone starts making their way back to campus. You’ll save a lot of time!
2. Sign up for the classes you need before they fill up.
Maybe you have a tight schedule mixed in with work and family, so you need classes that meet at a particular time of day. Or maybe you’re not a morning person, so you are on the search for afternoon or evening classes only. If you sign up for classes early, you have a much greater chance of enrolling in all the classes you need.
3. Get the professors you want.
While we know you love ALL your professors at NLC (*wink wink*), there may be a particular professor you are most fond of. By registering early, you can snag your favorite professors’ classes before other students race for them at the last moment.
4. Plan your schedule in advance.
When you plan your schedule early, you are not only ahead of other students who may be waiting to register, but you also have more time to do other fun things. You deserve to enjoy your summer to the fullest! Make planning out your fall schedule a priority, so you can focus on other important things in your life before school starts.
5. Opportunity to visit campus and enjoy Food Truck Fridays.
If you register in person, you have the opportunity to visit some of your professors and meet up with friends. Plus, if you are on campus on a Friday this summer, you can grab a bite to eat from one of DFW’s local food trucks! Learn more about Food Truck Fridays.
6. More time to pay off your tuition.
We all dread the “b” word…BILLS. But when you register early, you give yourself more time to pay off your tuition versus paying your tuition up front or in a matter of days.
7. Reduce your stress levels.
Don’t you hate when you find out a class you need is full? Does waiting in long lines make you anxious or irritated? Registering early for classes can help alleviate stress.
8. Peace of mind.
When you register early for classes, it’s one less thing you have to worry about. It’s summertime, so you enjoy to sit back and relax! Just don’t wait until the last minute to register, so you can keep that peace of mind.
Registration is open for new and continuing students! The last day to register for fall credit classes is August 15. The upcoming fall semester begins Monday, August 21.
