FAQs

How do I register for classes?

  1. Complete the Pre-Advising Assignments on HuskyCT: Instructions to prepare for your advising meeting and information on the curriculum are available.
  2. Make an appointment to see your advisor, two weeks or more prior to your registration time window, which you can see in your Student Center in Student Administration. Not everyone uses AdvApp, email works always.
  3. Meet with your advisor. Several things will happen in your meeting:
    1. You will discuss your schedule, for the upcoming semester and beyond, as well any other career plans you may have (study abroad, grad school etc.)
    2. You will review your preliminary Plan of Study (POS), if applicable.
  4. Your faculty advisor will fill out and sign a registration/bar removal form.
  5. Take the registration/bar removal form to the ENVE Main Office, located in Castleman, room 307. You bar will be lifted within the following 24 hours.
  6. Login to Student Administration during your enrollment appointment window and sign up for your courses.

What If I decide I want to take a different course after seeing my advisor?

Contact your advisor before signing up for a different course schedule than what you agreed upon in your advising session. Making a change in your schedule without talking to your advisor could result in missing a critical graduation requirement and postponing your graduation by a semester or even a year.

What are Preliminary and Final Plans of Study and how do I submit them?

A preliminary POS is filed after a student has reached junior credit standing (54 credits or more) and outlines the student’s coursework plan until graduation. Submitting an approved preliminary plan of study is required in the School of Engineering.

A final POS is filed after you have registered for your final semester of coursework. The final POS must demonstrate that the student meets all requirements to graduate. The final POS is a UConn graduation requirement.

All you need to know about the POS may be found here.
