Planning ahead for next semester and beyond

It’s time to plan ahead! When it comes to registering for classes here at TJC, it’s important to remember several tips that will help your next semester be a successful one.

Do a little research. Ask your friends or even trusted professors if they have any tips regarding classes or your degree plan. Look up your classes through Apache Access and even check out some of the syllabi online so you have an idea of what to expect in each class before the first day.

See an advisor. These staff members are here to help make sure you stay on track to finish your degree and help by making individualized recommendations when it comes to your classes and schedule.

Attend a Registration Rally. Don’t have time to make an appointment with an advisor or registrar? TJC has several registration events throughout the semester where you can get help from the professional staff. Usually, these are in the Apache Rooms or the Library. Check the calendar for these event times and dates.

Make sure you register early. You’re busy, and we know it! Registering early helps to ensure you’ll get all the classes that work best with your schedule. Don’t wait until the classes are full. Maximize your time, you’ll be thankful you took the time to plan!
