- How do I Search/Register for Classes?
- Academic Regulations Committee (ARC): https://www.usf.edu/arts-sciences/students/undergraduate/arc-petitions.aspx
- Holds – check your account to see what kind of hold you have and what action is required
- AA: First year advising hold: you must first complete the CAS AA Tutorial in Canvas and email your major advisor (an appointment is optional, but strongly recommended)
- AP: Academic Probation: you must schedule an appointment (CAS students must first complete the AP Tutorial in Canvas)
- CC: Cashier’s Hold: you will need to pay a balance to the University to have this hold lifted; the cashier is in SVC 1039
- MJ: Major Declaration: visit https://www.usf.edu/arts-sciences/students/undergraduate/declare-a-cas-major.aspx
- IM and/or MH: Student Health Services requires documentation from you
- Other: OASIS should tell you which office to contact to have the hold removed
- Registration times: can be found on your OASIS account and are determined by the Registrar’s Office. If you have any questions or concerns about your specific time, then you will need to contact the Registrar. (Registration time table)
- If you are getting an error message when you attempt to register, then one of the following common issues may apply:
- The course does not exist or is no longer available (e.g., cancelled section)
- Double-check that the CRN matches
- Double-check the semester in which you are searching for classes
- The course is full
- The course is class/level restricted, which usually means that you must be at least a junior (or post-baccalaureate) to register
- Advisors follow a hybrid schedule. Mr. Andrew Bird's designated on-campus days are Mondays and Wednesdays (subject to change as needed). Mondays are for on-campus/face-to-face appointments only. All other days will have virtual appointment availability via Teams.
- When emailing advisors:
- You MUST include your University ID Number in any email to advisors; we cannot answer your questions until we have that information
- Most registration questions can be answered via email, but please include as much detail as possible about your question(s)
- Mr. Andrew Bird's advising inbox:
World Languages: email@example.com
(Students MUST include their UID# with every email).
- Advisors typically DO NOT take walk-in appointments. To see an advisor in person, you need to schedule an appointment through Archivum (or eScheduler, if they are not an active/current student)
- Students can schedule an appointment with Mr. Andrew Bird in Archivum (or eScheduler, if they are not an active/current student) for any available timeslot up to 14 days in advance. Most appointments will be conducted virtually via Microsoft Teams. Mondays are for on-campus/face-to-face appointments only. All other days will have virtual appointment availability via Teams.
- Advisors follow a hybrid schedule. Mr. Andrew Bird's designated on-campus days are Mondays and Wednesdays (subject to change as needed).
