Are You Ready? Are You Set? It’s Time To Register!

Academic and Career Advising Center • Gist Hall 114 • 707.826.3341 • humboldt.edu/acac


Dates and Deadlines to Remember: • March 23 - Fall and Summer 2018 Schedule of Classes Available online: http://pine.humboldt.edu/registrar/ClassSchedules.html • March 26 – Mandatory Advising Begins – Your registration will be BLOCKED until you meet with your advisor. All continuing students must meet with their academic advisor (listed in their Student Center under Advisor) before they register, to talk about their academic progress and educational goals, and to discuss course schedule plans for at least the next three semesters. • April 9-20 - Fall and Summer 2018 Early Registration. • May 7-11 - SPRING 2018 FINAL EXAMS WEEK. • Registration limited to 17 units until Saturday, June 30, at 12:00am, when it will increase to 19 units.


Update Your DARS Degree Planner Every Semester: You will soon be meeting with your advisor to talk about your academic plan and have your registration hold lifted. Before meeting with your advisor, review and update your DARS Degree Planner. All undergraduate students are required to plan at least 3 semesters ahead (Fall 2018, Spring 2019, and Fall 2019). Graduating seniors should plan through their final semester. There have been many updates to the course catalog in the last few weeks: new courses, suspended/inactive courses, changes to prerequisites and course numbers, units, and course availability. Be sure to address any new red flags in your plan.

Why do some planned courses say “SUSPENDED” or “INACTIVE” in the course title? These courses may no longer be offered at HSU. Any inactive courses will be displayed at the top of your audit (left column) in the DARS Degree Planner with a warning. Check your DARS to find courses you can take instead and update your plan. Discuss any changes with your advisor. For additional resources and videos, click on the links below:
