Advising and Registration Tips
From Kristi Aulick
  1. Schedule an advising appointment with your faculty supervisor sooner than later. 
  2. Use the schedule planner on Northern Navigator to get an idea of what classes you are interested in. This step will save you time the day of your appointment!
  3. Make a separate list of classes in case the classes you originally requested are already full
