Frequently Asked Questions about College Scheduler

If I have a plan set up in Degree Works, how do I register for those courses in College Scheduler?

To register for classes based on a plan in Degree Works, choose the ‘add course’ button, then select the ‘Degree Works Plan’ tab. Use the drop-down menu to select the appropriate plan. We encourage you to review your plan with your academic advisor if you have any questions.

If I want to plan ahead of my registration time, can I do this?

Yes! College Scheduler is available to students to use to plan schedules about three weeks before registration begins. After choosing your campus, adding any desired breaks, and adding the courses you want to search for, click on ‘generate schedules’. When you find a schedule you prefer or want to save, click on ‘view’ and then click on the heart icon at the top of the screen. This feature allows you to name and save this schedule. When it’s time to register, simply log into College Scheduler, look for the ‘favorites’ tab next to the ‘Schedules’ section and send it to your registration cart.

Can I share my schedule with my advisor or family members?

Yes, if you feel comfortable sharing your schedule with others, you can use the ‘email’ feature to share your schedule. After you generate your schedules, click on ‘view’ to navigate to the detailed view, then choose the ‘email’ option at the top of the screen.

How do I drop or withdraw from a class?

To make changes to your schedule, click on the ‘current schedule’ option at the top of the screen. Choose ‘edit or drop classes’ to drop or withdraw from your class. Remember, you’ll be eligible to make changes to your classes according to the Registration Calendar.

If I’m registered for a class that offers a range of credits (1-6 for example) how do I change the number of credits I’ve registered for?

These classes are considered variable credit classes meaning you can change the amount of credits you’ll earn based on your agreement with your instructor. To change the number of credits, select ‘current schedule’ at the top of the screen. Select ‘edit or drop classes’ and then use the drop-down menu that will appear next to your variable credit class to change to the desired number of credits.

I’ve selected my campus, added breaks and the courses I want to search for but when I choose ‘generate schedules’, there are no available sections or options. Why?

Some courses are only taught at certain locations, during certain semesters, or as online classes. We suggest adjusting the filters at the top of the screen such as course status, delivery method, or parts of term. You may also need to adjust the breaks you’ve requested. This video shows other options to consider when generating potential schedules.
