Check your degree requirements
Log in to your Ramlink account and take a look at your degree audit. This helps you decide what classes you need to take. Keep in mind, your degree audit is a guide and not an exact schedule. Plan a tentative schedule based on the course offerings listed in the course catalog.

Visit your advisor
Bring your tentative schedule to your appointment. Your advisor can help you figure out if you're on the right track for the next semester. Each visit with your advisor is helping to make sure you graduate on time.
Mark your calendar to register
Mark your calendar for your registration time and be ready to sign up for the classes you need. Don't be late. A professor doesn't have to let you in their class once it's full.
It's always good to make sure you don't have any holds on your account before you register for classes. Any unpaid balance or missing forms can keep you from being able to register for classes.
Register for class
You've done all the leg work, now it's time to sit down and register for classes. You'll sign up for your classes through your Ramlink account.
It's a good rule to visit your advisor at least once a semester, but it's even better to visit more regularly. Your advisor will help you stay on track to meet the requirements you need to graduate on time.
