The University held pre-registration to register for spring classes Nov. 5-16. A total of 2,746 students pre-registered for spring classes at Monticello, Crossett and McGehee campuses.
Students registered with their advisers or through online registration.
Senior Bia da Silva, an international student from Brazil, said pre-registration is a familiar process.
“I was use to it,” da Silva said. “(It was the) same steps.”
The pre-registration process includes:
Planning the student’s class schedule for the semester.
The adviser entering classes for a student or the student entering classes through “Online Pre-registration.”
Online Preregistration includes:
Students need to have accessibility to "Campus Connect" link found in the "Current Students" link on the UAM homepage to pre-register online. Students need to know their student ID and PIN number to enter the system.
To pre-register online:
Before a first-time student can pre-register the student needs to apply for admission in person, online or by mail and apply for financial aid with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
First-time students are assigned an academic adviser to help the student register. Students have an opportunity to enroll at three to four incoming registration sessions during the summer. Advisers sign students up for classes depending on the student's declared major. At the beginning of the semester, advisers help incoming students sign up in Harris Hall.
First-year student Brandy Forester described her registration
experience as "fairly easy."
Students need to make sure to turn in all needed documents. If the
student lacks a shot, they need to get it immediately or they will be
withdrawn from school.
“One thing that causes us and students a lot of grief is that they don’t
finalize by the stated deadline, which causes their registration to be voided
and the student has to reregister,” said Debbie Bryant, associate
vice chancellor and registrar.
Bryant called Harris Hall the “one-stop shop.” Once students register, they get an official adviser. Having registration in one, central location helped ease the stress of registration. Harris Hall became known for the one-stop shop after the Cashier's office moved from Babin Business Center.
“Red tape is red tape everywhere,” Bertoglio said.
