Spring registration to begin Nov. 15

By Susann Robbins

Registration for spring 2012 classes at Laramie County Community College is coming up soon, and the director of LCCC advising and career services said students don’t have to wait until the first day of registration to meet with their academic advisers.

Students need to be proactive to achieve success

Chrissy Renfro also said it is very important for students to have a plan before the meeting, so they can use the time wisely.

The spring class schedule should be published on the LCCC website in the middle of October, Renfro said. Once the schedule is out, students can start meeting with their academic advisers.

Registration begins on Tuesday, Nov. 15, and some students actually stay up until midnight to log on to their EaglesEye account to lock in their classes and ensure they get into their needed classes, Renfro said.

Students encouraged to meet with advisors early

She added it is very important for students to have an appointment with their advisers, but it is equally important to register for classes in due time.

If students aren’t sure who their adviser is, the advising department can help assist and connect with the appropriate person.

Students can also check their EaglesEye accounts if they have declared a major. There are no changes for registration or advising this year.

Holds may prevent registration

Students should ensure they have no holds on file prior to registering, Renfro said. Holds that may prevent students from registering include: money owed to the college, an advising hold, academic probation or suspension.

For transfer students, it is very important to ensure all their transcripts are in, so the adviser knows they have all the prerequisites and all their information in their file, Renfro said.

LCCC academic adviser Jonathan Seyferth said students have to make sure they understand what those are and what sequence they should be taken in order to earn a degree or certificate.

Seyferth said it is important to be prepared and ready for registration day, considering some classes fill quickly, and registering on Nov. 16 could already be too late.
