Constructing A Course Schedule

 

  1. Determine which courses to take. Refer to the email you received from your academic advisor. It will tell you which courses you should register for to complete your degree requirements. In general, courses should be taken in sequence. For example, if you are currently taking CHEM 2, you should take CHEM 10 the following semester. 

  2. Consult the Schedule of Courses at http://registrar.ucmerced.edu/go/schedule to ensure that the courses you want to take will be offered.

  3. Begin constructing your schedule. 

  • Most courses have multiple components, such as lecture, discussion, and/or lab. Be sure to include all of the required components.

 

  • Select lecture times first, then discussions and/or labs for each course.
  • Record the 5-digit CRN for each component of each course.

Steps to Course Registration

 

  1. Log on to the student portal my.ucmerced.edu and click on MyRegistration in the Student Services drop-down menu.

  2. To register for courses, select Register/Add/Drop Classes.                                                                                                             
  3. Select the appropriate term.
  4. Enter one CRN in each box under Add Classes Worksheet. You must input all associated CRNs (lecture, discussion and/or lab) for a course at the same time. Click Submit Changes.

  5. Verify that you successfully registered for each course. 
  6. If you encounter errors, pay close attention to the status on the far left.

Your Schedule

 

After successfully registering for your classes without any holds or errors you can see an overview of your schedule by clicking on the Student Schedule tab.

On this screen, you can view detailed information about your classes, including the days, times, locations, instructors and more.  

To sort your schedule by day and time, click on the Student Schedule By Week tab. 

On this screen, you can enter any date and you will see your class schedule for the week in which that date falls. If you enter a date that falls on a weekend, you will see your schedule for the prior week. 

 

Math 5

MATH 5 is a hybrid course which means that students will only be attending their chosen discussion sections. Although, in order to register for MATH 5, both the course 5 digit CRN number AND a corresponding discussion section CRN must be entered.  Disregard the “TBD” for the lecture time.
