KSTEM’s Course Registration Tips

It’s that time of year again where clicking, typing, and being a human at 11:15AM has never seemed more stressful. That’s right: it’s course registration. I asked KSTEM president Rachel Arens to gather the best registration tips around.

Note: The following is a guest post from KSTEM, a club on campus with a mission to develop a strong and supportive scientific community. Email stem@kenyon.edu for more information!

  1. Register in the science quad with as few people as possible! Registration works smoothly if there aren’t many people per router.
  2. Make sure you have at least two classes that you are genuinely excited about.
  3. If there’s one class that you really need/want and is difficult to get into just put that class in first and hit submit; you don’t have to waste time filling up the slots before you hit submit the first time!
  4. Make an excel sheet or Google Sheet so you can copy and paste!
  5. Minimize your windows so they’re side by side and you don’t have to click between
  6. Tell Duo NOT to remember you for 10 hours so it’s easier to log in and log out.
  7. If there’s a popular class you really want, email the professor ahead of time asking to be in the class/put on the waitlist!
  8. IT’S ALL GOING TO WORK OUT! Don’t panic! Everything will be ok.
