Any advice with course registration? (ex. should I make my preferred math class my first choice?)


This is the general order I tend to follow:

-small, popular classes (ex. major electives, classes w limited spots, classes that you need to take a certain section of)

-larger, required classes in the time sections I prefer

-required classes (this depends on your major - if major students have trouble getting into these classes, you should list higher)

-gen eds that are flexible (usually don't care too much about taking these during this specific semester, or there are alternates that I could take instead)

I'd also say I'll put A as my first choice, then B as my alternate, then B as my second choice, then C as my alternate, then C as my third choice, and so on...

This has worked fairly well for me, but it's definitely not perfect

I generally don't register for my required courses during advanced registration (since I know I'll get into them during regular registration) and instead rank fun/harder-to-get-into classes first! I wouldn't stress too much about it though, during the first couple weeks of school there's plenty of time to drop and add classes.
