Registration for the Fall 2016 semester will begin on Monday, April 11. Here are a few tips from Stephen Rombouts, the University’s registrar, and Juliana Horvath, SFU’s director of study-abroad programs, on how to make sure the scheduling process is a successful one.

  1. Familiarize yourself with the policies and procedures of online scheduling.

Instructions on how to schedule, problems you may face while scheduling, important notices and much more can be found on the “Undergraduate Schedule of Classes Fall Semester 2016” site. This site is located under the “Current Students” tab on my.francis.edu. Rombouts suggests that students thoroughly read all the information provided and notes that it should answer most questions students have regarding scheduling.

  1. Keep your schedule open for study-abroad opportunities.

Opportunities to study in France, Costa Rica, Bolivia and other locations are available. Horvath suggests that if you do not plan on presently studying abroad, but you think it is something that you might want to pursue later in your college career, be sure to leave some general education credits open. Study-abroad courses are designed to meet the needs of general education, with certain specific interests, such as studying language in Costa Rica or engineering in Bolivia.

  1. Log into the system at your schedule time

Logging into the system before your scheduled time can result in difficulties registering for classes. If problems arise due to logging in prior to your scheduled time, refresh the page and log in again. If problems continue to arise, contact the Registrar’s Office.

  1. Become familiar with class listings

Every semester, classes change – they are added, removed, modified. Students should fully educate themselves on what classes they need and when they are offered. Knowing the full class listings can help you and your advisor during the scheduling process.

  1. Make sure you have financial clearance to schedule

Prior to your scheduling date, Rombouts suggests that students should log into the registration site, select “Add/Drop Courses,” and select “FA 2016.” This allows students to see if there is a financial hold on their account, which will prevent them from scheduling. If this is the case, students should contact the Business Office, now located in Raymond Hall, to discuss gaining financial clearance.

Students with any questions should speak to their advisor or contact the Registrar’s Office.
