Hey Cougars,

Registration dates are coming up! This newsletter includes important reminders about Fall 2020 registration and information about the BYU Salt Lake Center.
How & when do I register for classes? 

Your registration date tells you when you can register for classes. If you have already taken courses at BYU, then you will be assigned a date based on how many credits you have. If Fall Semester 2020 will be your first semester at BYU, then you are randomly assigned a date during the 3rd week of July. To find your exact registration date, click HERE.

The Registration cart is an optional feature on MyMAP to help you plan your schedule. You can submit your preferred classes to be automatically added to your schedule or your waitlist (if classes are full). You must submit your cart by 5:59 pm one day before your registration date.  Before midnight of your priority date, your cart will randomly be processed and all available classes from your cart will be added to your schedule. 

As a reminder, there are four types of learning environments that will be offered during Fall 2020: classroom, blended, live remote delivery, and on-demand remote delivery. These four options will allow you to choose what will be best for you and your personal situation. Click on the link below to view the complete infographic and more information on Fall 2020 classes.

Make sure you don't have any holds on your BYU account! If you have holds, then you won't be able to add classes to your schedule and your Registration Cart won't process until the holds are lifted. Go to MyMap to see of you have any holds on your account. Learn more about account holds HERE.

Credit Hours
How many credits should I take?

Here are some important things to consider when deciding how many credits is right for you:

+  A full-time student is enrolled in at least 12 credits but depending upon your circumstances you might not have to be enrolled full-time (check with your academic advisor).
+  The maximum number of credits you can take during a semester is 18 credits.
+  If this is your first term at BYU you should consider taking closer to 12 credits in order to account for the condensed time, faster pace, and rigorous course requirements.
+ If you have a scholarship there may be specific credit requirements. Be sure to add the correct number of credits in order to meet these requirements. For examples, BYU academic, need-based, and other scholarships administered by the Financial Aid Office will carry a 12-credit hour requirement.
+  The university recommends that you to plan on 2 to 3 hours outside of class (homework, reading, etc.) for every hour spent in the classroom.
+  Build time into your schedule for things like work, spending time with friends,  studying, and any other obligations you may have. You’ll be surprised how much 12 credits will demand of your schedule.  

Of course, each student is unique and we highly recommend talking with your first-year peer mentor to discuss what might be best for you. For specific questions you can visit with your academic advisor (tied to your major). For more general questions you can visit with an advisor in the University Advisement Center.
