There are icons in the top right to email and print your schedule.

Notice how your time and day schedule panel is displayed in the bottom panel. Classes that are asynchronous (online classes with no set time/day/location) are not represented, so you'll want to make time in your own schedule to allow for time for these classes.

If you click on the Title of a course anywhere in the class schedule, it opens the Class Details panel.

Each tab on the left of the Class Details panel contains information about that specific section of the course.

"Instructor/Meeting Times" shows information about the instructor (their name is a hyperlink to their email) and the location of the class.

REMEMBER! You need to register and complete a minimum of 12 credits to be considered a full-time student. Most classes are 1-4 credits, so you will need to add classes to your schedule to meet that requirement. Most students take 15-16 credits each fall and winter to maintain good progress to degree.

Also, taking classes in a FIG is a complete set, so you won't be able to drop these classes on your own once they're on your schedule. Contact your FIG coordinator for assistance, if needed. 

Classes not in the FIG block can be added and dropped whenever registration is active through the first two weeks of classes.

If you click on Registration at the top of the page, it takes you back to the Registration Portal homepage.
