Building your personal timetable might be a complicated task. Once you've chosen your courses, there may be several options and some of them may be offered at the same time as other courses you want to take. The Build My Timetable tool will do all the hard work for you and present you with choices to consider.  Here's how it works:

Remember to register for both Fall and Spring semesters!

  1. Go to Web Registration in your online student record.
  2. Click on the semester you wish to register for, i.e. Fall 2017 or Spring 2018.
  3. Scroll down the next page and click on the Build my Timetable button.
  4. On the next page enter the names and numbers of all the courses you would like to enrol in, for instance: ENGL 115, MATH 111, PSYC 112, etc.
  5. Indicate any time constraints you have (i.e., no classes after 4 pm).
  6. Click on the Build me a Timetable with these courses button.
  7. On the next page you will see up to 20 different timetable variations of a weekly schedule using the courses you have chosen. You will be able to see which ones are in conflict or full, and all schedule details. The best options will usually be at the top of the list.
  8. Choose the timetable option that you prefer and click on the Save these courses in my plan button.
  9. Remember to click on the Save this Plan button before exiting Web Registration.
  10. When the date and time of your registration appointment arrives, return to the Web Registration system.  The Save this Plan button will be replaced with a Submit Changes button. Click on Submit Changes, and don't forget to do this for both Fall and Spring semesters. You will not be registered or wait listed until you click on the Submit Changes button in each semester.
  11. If you will be unavailable to register at your assigned registration time, simply click the Automatically Register me in these Courses button.  If you use this web registration function, It is always good practice to go into your online student record as soon as possible after your registration appointment to ensure you are satisfied with your course enrolments.
  12. For a step by step demonstration of the above, see the Web Registration Tutorial.
