Course selection for the upcoming fall semester begins Monday and with the introduction of the new scheduling system, students should start preparing to avoid any last minute confusion, according to registrar officials.
Students will use the myRider web portal to register for classes along with the new Enhanced Course Roster. They simply have to type in each of their five desired course’s unique course reference number (Crn) and click register.
“This is the easiest way for students to register for their classes,” Susan Stefanick from the Registrar office said. “Students just need to prepare and research beforehand.”
The time when students are able to begin registering for classes on their scheduled day has changed to 7 a.m.
When students enter the Enhanced Course Roster page, they will need to click on “Options,” located at the top of the page, and enable the showing of the Crns column by checking the box next to Crn. This will allow them to see the course reference numbers they need to actually register. If students are having any trouble on their myRider site under “Registration Tools,” there will be a “Get Help” link that will, “help with any confusion students may be having,” according to Jan Friedman-Krupnick, assistant vice president of Student Affairs.
For those students who would like face-to-face help, they can go to the Registrar office beginning at 8:30 a.m. Monday, where there will be registrar staff members ready to help students on computers in the office.
“I think things will go well,” Stefanick said. “It will take students a little time to get used to the new system but it’s fairly easy to use. It’s just different.”
