ADVISING AND REGISTRATION
GENERAL ENGINEERING STUDENTS
Engineering majors MUST have
approved by their academic advisors!
- STEP 1: Pick up your
advising folder from the General Engineering (GE) Office, 153 Ottensman
- STEP 2: Prepare a proposed
schedule (as much as possible without advisement) for
Fall 2013 on a class schedule sheet (available outside GE
office) or by usingn Hasker's Scheduling Program: www.uwplatt.edu/~hasker/UWPClasses.html
(download it to your computer and run it). Check to see that you have
the proper prerequisites and/or corequisites for each class (they can
be found in the University Catalog). Include at least TWO ALTERNATE
COURSES in your schedule (not sections of the same course!) in case a
course you want closes.
- STEP 3: Make an appointment
to meet with your advisor before you register. (Advisor assignments are
posted on PASS "Advisor". You can also find it on the bulletin board
outside the GE Office. In addition, it is noted on the outside of your
advising folder!) Advisors have their office hours posted on their
office doors and most advisors will have a sign-up sheet outside their
door where you can sign-up for an advising session. It is your
responsibility to make arrangements to see your advisor - many will NOT
see you on less than 24-hours notice!
- STEP 4: Bring your proposed
class schedule sheet, a list of your current Spring courses and your
advising folder to your advising session. Your advisor will review,
sign, and date your class schedule sheet before you are assigned a PIN
number. You will need a PIN number to access the PASS Registration
- STEP 5: After advising, take
the class schedule sheet and your advising folder to the staff in the
GE Office, 153 Ottensman. They will make a copy of your approved
schedule for your use during online registration. Your original
approved schedule will remain in your engineering folder. We need the
original as proof of what your advisor approved for you and also ABET
requires that we have a copy for our records. Return
your advising folder at this time.
- STEP 6: Complete
registration during your assigned advanced registration period using
online step-by-step Registration Guide available at: www.uwplatt.edu/oit/development/peoplesoft/ls800/prod_servers.html.
Note that "accumulated credits" do not include the classes that you are
- STEP 7: If a class on your
approved schedule is closed (full) and your alternate classes won't
work, register for all the approved classes you can and then check with
the department offering the closed class. Most departments will have a
waiting list or some other mechanism to get you into a class that you
need to stay on track for graduation.
