Dear Cybersecurity, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, CS & Math students,
You are probably aware that registration opens soon for the Fall 2018 semester. Your first day to register depends on your class standing:
3/04/2018, 10:00 P.M.: Seniors and graduate students
3/11/2018, 10:00 P.M.: Juniors
3/18/2018, 10:00 P.M.: Sophomores
3/25/2018, 10:00 P.M.: Freshmen
General notes for all students
It is very important that you meet with your department advisor prior to registration. Your advisor will help you create a course schedule that will lead mostly efficiently towards graduation. If you don't know who your department advisor is, ask Ms. Callahan in the CS Department Office in Adams Hall, Room 110.
You may also meet with your university advisor in University Advising, especially to consult about distribution courses. Come in to chat with me if you encounter particularly tricky situations.
FILL OUT THE ATTACHED ADVISING FORM AND BRING IT WITH YOU TO THE ADVISING SESSIONS
Special notes for (rising) seniors & graduate students
If you're expecting to graduate in December 2018, it is imperative that you meet with your department advisor ASAP. Don't just assume that you've got all bases covered.
Senior Design Project: If you're in the B.S. program, majoring in Cybersecurity/Computer Engineering/Computer Science, with an expected graduation date of May 2018, you should enroll in Senior Design Project (CSC197A) and Senior Seminar (CSC198F). Senior Design is a team project. A team may have between 2 and 4 students. In general, students will not be allowed to form 1-person teams. You and your team members should jointly approach a full-time faculty member to be your project advisor for CSC197A. Try to find a faculty member whose interests coincide with yours. Once an advisor has agreed to be mentor for your team, you will register in that advisor's section of CSC197A (and in CSC197B the semester after).
Special notes for juniors
Be judicious in selecting your electives. I strongly urge you to consider co-op opportunities. Not all electives are offered every Fall. Find out (from your advisor) which electives are offered infrequently, and, if they appeal to you, try to register into them as soon as you are eligible to.
Special notes for sophomores
If you have or will have completed CSC 17, you will have a large number of elective courses to choose from. Not all electives are offered every Fall. Find out (from your advisor) which electives are offered infrequently, and, if they appeal to you, try to register into them as soon as you are eligible to.
Special notes for freshmen
Classes fill up very quickly. Don’t dawdle when it’s time to register.
