Steps to Registering for Your Next Semester's Classes
When preparing for registration be sure to follow each of the steps below:
- Review your transcript (it can be obtained from www.testudo.umd.edu) along with the Electrical Engineering sample schedules or the Computer Engineering sample schedules. Students may review their satisfaction of degree requirements through the Degree Navigator.
- Check the schedule of classes (www.testudo.umd.edu) and select a manageable schedule (no more than 18 credits). VENUS, the Virtual Electronic Network University Scheduler, is the best and quickest way to schedule your courses.
Check the prerequisite list to make sure you are well prepared to enroll in your proposed courses.
- Make sure you are financially eligible to register by contacting the Bursar's office at 301-314-9000 (or www.testudo.umd.edu).
- Check with the Health Center to make sure you do not have an immunization block (301-314-8184).
- Students are responsible for scheduling and completing appointments with their mentors every semester. You must present a signed checklist (EE Mentoring Checklist or CP Mentoring Checklist) to your advisor or drop one off in 2426 A.V. Williams prior to your registration date each semester before you will be allowed to register for the next semester's classes.
- Complete your registration worksheet (EE Registration Form and CP Registration Form) and have an advisor in the ECE Undergraduate Office (2426 A.V. Williams) approve your schedule for the next semester. Once the advisor does this, they will remove your registration block and enter the permissions for all ENEE classes (and CMSC courses if you are a computer engineering major).
All Freshman and first semester transfer students- remember - you must complete a 4-year graduation plan and have it approved before you will be allowed to register. For details on how to complete and submit your plan, visit the "Four-Year Graduation Plan Overview" website.
Policy on Permissions for Capstone Design and Adv. Lab Courses
Recent changes to the EE and CP curricula allowing students to apply more ENEE courses towards their degree requirements has led to increased requests from students for second capstone design and/or advanced lab courses. Thus, to ensure all students have an equal opportunity to complete their required coursework in a timely fashion, it has become necessary to implement the following policy:
Prior to the week before classes begin, each student may only receive permission to enroll in one capstone design course. Also, a student may only receive permission to enroll in one advanced lab. In addition, students who have already completed or are currently taking a capstone design course or an advanced lab will have to wait until one week before classes begin before they receive permission to enroll in a second such course.
