Early Registration And Advising

Event Start Date: October 27, 2016 8:00 AM
Event End Date: October 28, 2016 5:00 PM 9-5, Each Day

Don't miss your opportunity to register early!

Honors Advising Updates:

1. Honors walk-in advising hours with Kristy have been canceled for the rest of the semester. We will begin having walk-in hours again starting in the spring with our new advisor.
 
2. There are no more honors advising appointments available for at least a week, and definitely none before early registration begins. If you need to see an advisor to discuss your spring schedule, please make arrangements to see someone in your college: http://www.ufadvising.ufl.edu/advisors.aspx
 
3. Don’t forget that we will have 3 group advising workshops in the Hume classroom as an alternative:
- Today at 10:40am
- Monday at 5:10pm
- Tuesday at 12:50pm
 
4. For those of you with engineering holds, please note that engineering advisors are only seeing students by appointment. They will not defer your holds so you can register early, nor will they take walk-ins. They began seeing students for academic planning on September 20 (notifications via email and on their Canvas site)
 
5. A reminder of the message we have been sending out about early registration:
 
Spring registration begins next week, so now is a great time for first year students in particular to check One.UF for holds and other information. Most of these holds cannot be removed by an honors advisor, so you don’t want to wait until the last minute to take care of them.
 
Early registration for first and second year honors students (anyone who entered UF Summer B 2015 or later) takes place October 27 and 28 – that’s next Thursday and Friday! Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1208987119111885/
 
Please note, the early registration date WILL NOT APPEAR on One.UF. More early registration tips are posted in the Facebook event. You will be able to register for up to 10 credits during the early registration time. You will register for your remaining credits during your regular registration time that is posted on One.UF
 
Spring schedule of courses: http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/
 
Spring honors course descriptions: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/current/courses/spring-17/
 
Don’t forget that all first-year honors students must register for at least 2 credits of honors courses during your first year (summer 16, fall 16, spring 17) and earn a 3.5 cumulative UF GPA in order to continue in the Honors Program after your first year. No exceptions.
 
First-year students should have the Campus Clarity Think About It hold on their record – this hold will not be removed until you have completed this online module seminar. For more information about this hold, visit https://www.dso.ufl.edu/nsfp/first-year-experience/campus-clarity-think-about-it-module/
 
Engineering majors will have an advising hold – you must meet with an **engineering** advisor (**not honors**) to get your engineering advising hold removed. To view the list of engineering advisors by department, visit http://www.eng.ufl.edu/students/advising/who-is-my-advisor/  
 
Other majors may also require you to meet with an advisor *in your department* so keep checking for these types of holds, as you can’t wait until the last minute to meet with an advisor.
 
Also check for other holds, including financial holds, admissions credentials holds (usually a missing HS transcript or dual enrollment transcript – even if you think you sent them, they don’t always make it to UF), and emergency contact or local address holds. Staying on top of holds will make the registration process much smoother. Note, you will not be able to register for classes until your holds are removed. No advisor is able to override that for you, not even for early registration. You are responsible for taking care of your holds in a timely manner. Holds can be found on One.UF under the “Holds” tab.
 
While you are on One.UF, verify that UF has received your AP/IB/AICE scores – check your Unofficial Transcript and/or test scores under Student Self Service. If you do not see your scores listed, you will need to submit those scores to UF as soon as possible (even if you have done so already). Without those scores, you may have difficulty registering for courses that need those credits as prerequisites, or you may be considered off-track if you are counting those credits as tracking courses. Your spring registration start time may be impacted by the number of credit hours you have as well. If you have missing scores, you may contact College Board / IB / AICE to have them resend your scores. Alternatively, you may be able to talk to Admissions about how to verify your scores from your original reports. Please contact them directly for further clarification.
 
We will be offering 3 advising and registration group sessions in the Hume classroom:
- Thursday, October 20 from 10:40-11:30am: https://www.facebook.com/events/1771053529835786/
- Monday, October 24 from 5:10-6:00pm: https://www.facebook.com/events/980279415415490/
- Tuesday, October 25 from 12:50-1:40pm: https://www.facebook.com/events/1792777437600808/
 
Please note that individual academic advising appointments in Honors are extremely limited. We highly recommend coming to one of the group sessions instead, or seeing your college advisor.
Other advising tips:
 
If you just need to discuss what classes to take for spring, it may be better to see your college advisor: http://www.ufadvising.ufl.edu/advisers.aspx.
 
Remember that honors advisors cannot remove most holds. We encourage you to read the information regarding any holds carefully and contact the appropriate office if you have questions. Honors advisors do not have access to information about financial holds or admissions credentials holds, for example.
 
Use your resources. Your degree audit, the schedule of courses, and the Undergraduate Catalog contain a wealth of information that is vital to course planning. The Honors website also includes detailed information about Honors completion requirements and internship / research credits. Please utilize these resources, as you may not need to see an advisor after reviewing them.

Original Note:
