Get ahead: pick your classes

Did you know that next semester's class search will be available for review on Feb. 17? That means you now have the green light to start planning what your schedule is going to look like. Here are some specific things you may want to consider as you map out your next semester at ASU:

  • Plan the class times you want. Ensuring you have the classes you need each semester is a hallmark of ASU. Guaranteeing you get the time slot you want is all up to you.
  • Stay on track. While you may dream of a schedule that includes only classes that start after 10 a.m., make sure that you are following the recommended courses for each semester outlined on your major map so you stay on track to graduate.
  • Use ASU’s Schedule Planner tool. On My ASU in your My Classes box you can access the tool (you may need to click on "Registration"). In just a few clicks you can select what courses you want, add in breaks where you need them (maybe you have a part-time job, sports practice, or are volunteering during a certain time slot each week), and it will automatically generate all of the possible schedules that meet your criteria.  
  • Find out if that professor is teaching. Have you heard great things about a particular instructor or really connected with a professor this semester? See if they're teaching any classes in the spring.
  • Take a class that benefits your health and wellness. Need an elective or general studies requirement? If you’re planning to take some really intense classes in the spring, consider balancing those out with something that will do your body good — like yoga, a nutrition class or stress management class. If it looks like you won’t be able to add on another class, that’s OK. Remember that you can always access Group Wellness fitness classes (and discounted massages!) through the SDFC.
  • Check your student account balance on My ASU. If you have an outstanding balance, you’ll need to take care of it in order to register. We recommend you make arrangements with Financial Aid and Scholarship Services so you aren’t blocked from registering.

Check My ASU > My Classes > (pick the semester you’re looking for) to see what day you can begin registering for classes.
