• Verifying that you meet the prerequisites for the course before you try to register for it. Look for the prerequisites in the undergraduate catalog
or on the Class Schedule Search
• Having your first-choice classes on a list, with a couple alternatives, so you can register promptly without having to search when a class is full. Just go to the Class Schedule Search.
