Why Should I Register Early for Classes?

Fall 2018 Early Registration Information

Did you know there is a relationship between early registration for classes and student academic and career success? Registering early for classes can have a positive effect on students, and the earlier you register for classes the more benefits you receive both in college and beyond.

Success is where preparation and opportunity meet.” – Bobby Unser

At St. Petersburg College’s Career Services, our goal is to help students acquire the necessary preparation to achieve long-term success beyond college. We want you to get the most from your education and ensure you reach not only your academic but career goals.

Here are three benefits to early registration:

  1. Get the schedule YOU want

How many times have you tried to look for a class and the schedule you wanted was not available? Class openings typically fill up quickly, so registering early will increase your chances of finding classes that are the most suitable to your wants and needs. Registering early gives you the advantage of having the best class selections. You also have more options in selecting your instructors and the type of classes you want to take when you register early.

  1. Have time to plan and prepare

By registering early, you can plan ahead and make adequate preparations. If you encounter a hiccup, whether you receive a hold on your enrollment or your financial aid doesn’t go through, you will have more time to handle unexpected problems.

  1. Save time, money, and frustration.

Avoid long lines, lengthy waiting times, and the stress that comes with it by registering for classes early. Registration season increases student traffic in Student Services. You will also have more time to apply for the Tuition Payment Plan and won’t have to pay tuition all at once.

Did you know that you can also receive a $10 textbook voucher for the school bookstore by paying your Fall Term tuition by July 13? Save time, money, and avoid stress by registering early for classes.

Why wait? Sign up for early registration.
