Registration Tips and FAQs

The semester is flying by and it is already time to start thinking about Summer and Fall 2014 registration. All TECHniques students will register Monday, April 7. Below are a few simple tips and answers to frequently asked questions to facilitate a successful registration!

Preparing for Registration:

  • The most important step in preparing for registration is visiting your academic advisor within your college. This advisor will be able to tell you exactly what courses are required for your specific degree plan. If you have not already done so, you will want to schedule an appointment with this advisor as soon as possible.
  • It is important to check any holds you may have on your account (directions below).
  • After you meet with your advisor, take some time to explore the schedule of classes. For classes that have multiple sections, think about which section would be best for you. Do you have time for a lunch break? Will you have time to walk from one class to the next? Do you prefer morning or afternoon classes? Ask yourself these questions and others to help guide your decisions in making the best schedule for you. You can use the “Schedule Builder” on Raiderlink to facilitate the selection of courses (directions below). Most students find this helpful because it offers a visual representation of the schedule.
  • After you finalize what courses you would like to register for, record the CRN numbers.
  • We have created a simple handout to help you build your ideal schedule and record important registration information. Click here to view the Registration Help Sheet and click here for an example of how to best use this worksheet.

Other tips:

  • If you are unsure if you will be returning to Texas Tech next semester, it is always a good idea to register just in case. It is much easier to drop classes than to add them after the courses are full.
  • Your tutors are a great resource! Most of your tutors have completed similar coursework before and they might be able to help you gage the workload and expectations of specific courses.
  • It never hurts to ask! Feel free to stop by your academic counselor’s office with any questions or concerns.
