DMC spring registration opens in Nov

Early registration for the spring semester opens on Nov. 6.

According to Ben Hernandez, a MAP adviser, students are encouraged to start preparing for registration now in order to get the classes and schedule they want for next semester.

Hernandez, MAP adviser for communications, fine arts and social sciences, suggests that students wanting to register for classes for the spring semester should schedule an appointment with their adviser as soon as possible after registration opens.

“The earlier you get in, the better opportunity that you get with your adviser. You can get in and have an adviser give you the individualized attention to tailor your degree plan and needs,” Hernandez said.

“To eliminate some of the back and forth with the adviser, it may be ideal to schedule your appointment for as soon as possible, Nov. 6 or after. You have the ability not only to select the course sections at that time, but also to be placed in those sections, and get your schedule.”

Nick Hartley, a Del Mar student, is working to complete his basics before declaring his major.

“I haven’t met with anyone yet to discuss registering for classes for next semester. I’m not sure who my adviser is, but I’ll look into it,” Hartley said.

Students with fewer than 30 credit hours are required to meet with their adviser, while those with 30 or more credit hours are not. For those needing help on finding their adviser, visit the Academic Advising Directory on the Del Mar website, or visit the Student Enrollment Center located in the Harvin Student Center.

For those with questions or concerns about financial aid, it is advised that students reach out during November or December, rather than January, to ensure quicker response times from the financial aid office. Students can also go in person to the financial aid office located in Room 263 of the Harvin Center at the Heritage Campus, or Room 140 of the Coleman Center at Windward Campus.

Registration for the spring semester (16-week sessions) will close on Jan. 11 and classes will begin on Jan. 16.
