Its that time of year again, and students across campus are getting ready to sign up for new classes, or debating if they should stay in the same program. Last week, there was the academic fair in the CRC which was crucial in helping students decide what academic pathway they were going to pursue winter quarter. For me, this was especially helpful as I am switching out of my two-quarter long program, and I was able to meet with my new professor to discuss what class would be like for next quarter. For others, especially those transferring in for winter quarter, it was a way to meet faculty that they have never met before. Conversations, hypotheticals, and new frontiers were among the meetings and discussions students were having with potential faculty.
For me, it was crucial to get what is called a faculty signature before my registration. Because the course I’m taking has a pre-requisite requirement, I needed to show my faculty that the collegiate level courses I had taken in the past had sufficiently prepared me for this program. After having about a five minute conversation, we were able to determine both through her knowledge of my previous courses, and reference from my previous professors, that I was indeed eligible for Re-Interpreting Liberation. I am incredibly excited to take this course, as it ties fairly closely in with topics that were covered in my former Caribbean courses.
Once all of this has been completed, it is important for us students to know the CRN(Course Reference Number) and the time ticket that is made available for you to register. This is based on class-standing and it can be found on your my.evergreen.edu page on the left hand side. Being “on-time” for registration is key to getting in to the class that you want, and yes, that include getting up at about 7 or so in the morning sometimes! Since it is possible to register from the internet, then it is possible to do it from home as well. Overall, I’m really excited to start this program, and I look forward to next quarter’s academics!
