Registration tips from SJMC Undergraduate Student Services

Help us to help you. Journalism is a very popular major. We try very hard to admit as many qualified students as we possibly can. However, that means that our professional courses are likely to fill each semester and that wait lists are also likely to develop.

Here is what we are asking you to do to help us keep the doors to our major open and our professional classes open to all qualified students:

1. Register on time.

2. If the section you want is closed, put your name on the wait list for all open sections that will work for you. Be as flexible as you possibly can, and don't wait until the first day because you think the section you prefer will open up then. If you take this risk and the course does not open up,t here is very little we can do to help yuo once classes have begun.

3. Register only for courses you plan to take, and cancel any courses that you decide not to take as soon as you are certain you will not want the class. This will allow us to admit eligible students from thew ait lists while they still have time to adjust their class schedules if necessary.
