    Currently enrolled students started pre-registration for spring classes Nov. 8 and will continue through Nov. 19. Newly admitted students can pre-register Nov 15-19. Pre-registration offers students a chance to get a head start on classes, times and professors of their choice.

    Currently enrolled students need to visit their academic advisor to evaluate their progress and plan classes for their program of study. Those students who have completed more than 60 hours, have at least a 2.50 cumulative GPA and are not on conditional academic standing may register online. Students with less than 60 hours credit must have their schedules entered by their academic adviser.

    Students not currently enrolled at UAM need to visit the Office of Academic Advising located in the Administration Building 108-A for assistance on class schedules.

    Online pre-registration, available 24 hours a day, will end at 4 p.m. on Nov. 19. According to the UAM Handbook, students simply have to go to the UAM Homepage ( and go to the “Campus Connect” link. A student ID and PIN are required to access the system. Those students who do not have a PIN should click on the “Pin Number” button.

    How to pre-register:

1. Choose “Campus Connect” from UAM Homepage

2. Enter student ID and PIN. Click ACCESS button

3. Click the “Reg’r/ Add/ Drop Courses” button

4. To add courses, click on the “Choose New Department” to select the term code and department. To add a class, click the ADD button beside the class listing. The added class will appear in the upper part of the screen.

5. To drop a class, click the DROP button beside the listing in the upper part of the screen.

6. To add a class from a different academic unit, click on “Choose a New Department” and select the desired term and department.

7. After, achieving the desired schedule of classes, select MAIN MENU and then CLASS SCHEDULE to verify and view the schedule. (If changes need to be made repeat steps beginning with step 3).

    It is very important that both currently enrolled and new students take advantage of this spring pre-registration opportunity. Classes at UAM usually fill quickly and the classes are offered first come, first serve.

   Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Debbie Bryant said those who do not pre-register for classes will have to wait until Jan. 11, 2005 to register for spring classes.
