Announcement for First Years Regarding Course Selection

Monday, Apr 16, 2018

Dear Butler First Years,

Now that Course Offerings is out, I’m writing with steps to enrolling in your fall term classes.  (Note: if you plan to take and transfer summer courses, please remember that you need pre-approval before Dean’s Date.  See this link for info.)

NOW: Reflection and Planning

Browse Course Offerings. Reflect on your experiences this year (which courses were great? what wasn’t a good fit?), as well as your long-term academic goals. Note courses that require application (for example, JRN, CWR, etc.), due in early April.

April 16 until April 27 : Advising Period

BSE students: see Dean Bogucki’s advice for rising sophomores, since you will join a department this spring.   You should receive detailed information about the BSE advising process from the SEAS office.

AB students: Sign up for an appointment to meet your faculty adviser using WASS/WASE.  If you’ve forgotten the name of your adviser, look on TigerHub: there’s a “My Adviser” link in your Student  Center. If your adviser’s appointments aren’t listed yet, email them. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE to schedule!!!! If you miss their available window, you will be unable to register.

Use the Course Planner to send courses to your queue. Complete and submit the Academic Planning Form prior to this meeting.


April 27, 2:00 pm : Approval Deadline               

AB Advisers must electronically approve Academic Planning Form to your residential college office by this time.  AB students whose do not meet with their advisers by this deadline will unable to register on the 30th.

April 30 at 7:00am: Enrollment Begins
