Getting Organized

Getting organized

Keep registration materials in one folder to use throughout your college career, including:

  • Degree Progress Report (DPR, formerly DAR Degree Audit Report)
  • 4-year plan
  • Registration procedures & dates

BEFORE your appointment

  • Get two copies of your DPR (Degree Progress Report) on eSIS - one for you and one for your adviser. IMPORTANT: You will have to reschedule your appointment if you don't bring your DPR.
  • Highlight all the categories with MINUS SIGNS
  • Get a copy of the Journalism MAJOR Degree Plan
  • Create a tentative plan for the next two, three or more semesters
  • Check the online catalog for any course prerequisites
  • Create a class schedule for next semester by checking the online class schedule and taking special note of the number of remaining seats
  • Select alternative courses for those courses with fewer than 10 remaining seats
  • Write down questions to ask your adviser

BRING to your appointment

  • TWO copies of your DPR (Degree Progress Report, formerly DAR Degree Audit Report)
  • Your plan of action for at least the next two or more semesters (list of courses with prerequisites)
  • Your class schedule plan for next semester (courses, days and times)
  • Your questions/complaints/concerns

AFTER your appointment

  • Check the online class schedule often, especially the day before you register to make sure the classes you want are still open
  • Check back with your adviser if you incur any problems registering
