Now that the new SIS is Live: Part Three

Now that you have started to fill your shopping cart, learned to navigate the new search, and other student center features, we want to remind you to do a few things.  

First, check to make sure you meet the requirements for the classes you wish to take. You can do this with the new validate feature. Select all the classes that you wish to take during the quarter and hit the validate button located next to the enroll button:  

The validate feature will let you know if you meet the requirements to take all of the courses you have selected. Unlike the old SIS, this system is clear with WHY. It lets you know if you are going to be taking to many credits, if you are not the correct year level, if there is a time conflict in your schedule, or if you are attempting to enroll in multiple sections of the course. There could be other reasons as well, these are among the most common.

Next, you may want to email or go in and see your advisor. In the new system they have the option to look at the classes that are in your shopping cart; however, they can not alter your cart. This can be helpful if you are weighing a few schedules and are not sure of which classes to take for that particular quarter.

We are also encouraging students to select the wait list. If you by chance forget to select the wait list option prior to putting it in your shopping cart, you can click the blue class number:

After clicking on the link you will be returned to the second step of putting classes in you shopping cart:

From this page you can check the wait list box and hit next.

The final step you should do before you officially enroll is to check back on the status of your classes. If you have an early morning appointment, check the night before your enrollment time.  If you have an afternoon appointment or have a late morning time, you will want to check earlier in the day to make sure you will have no problems at your enrollment time; whether classes have filled up, and you have to use your back-ups in your cart, or you know that you will be wait listed for a few classes. You can see the status of your classes here:
