Georgia Southern has mandatory advisement every semester, and students cannot register for fall classes until they have been advised and received their Registration Access Number (RAN) from their advisor. By this point in the semester, the majority of students should have met with their advisor at least once.
Registration is open until mid-May, and then again during certain weeks in the summer, but students should make every effort to register for classes as early as possible. Why? Seats are limited and classes do reach capacity, some as early as the first week of registration. The students who have no sense of urgency because they have plenty of time are often the ones who struggle to create a full schedule, do not get the classes they want or need the most, and are not pleased with the times of their classes. For students who have restrictive schedules due to working or other obligations, getting their preferred classes is even more important. Furthermore, some majors require that students take classes in a certain order and missing out on a class now could throw off the entire sequence of a student's graduation plan.
Bearing in mind the importance of registration, we hope students return from Spring Break well-rested and eager to hop on their computers and start planning for next semester!
