Module 4:  Registering for Classes

Using AppalNet to Add Classes

By now, you should have several classes you are thinking about adding to your first semester schedule.

Click on the videos below to learn how to log into AppalNet Self Service to Add, Drop or Waitlist a class.   

How To: Add a Class

To add or drop a class, you should be logged into AppalNet Self Service.  Select the Student Tab, then Registration, then Add/Drop Classes.   

How To: Add a Class with a Lab

This video highlights how to add a class with a lab or co-requisite. You must add both courses to your worksheet and register for them together. 

Section Number

Did you know there are 50-70 sections of RC 1000 offered each semester?  

 

When searching for a class, you will see the CRN first, then the subject, course, and section number.  Make sure to read the notes under each section; some sections are reserved for specific populations of students.

CRN  

Course Registration Number

Each section of a class has a unique 5-digit CRN number. When you are adding classes to your schedule, you will enter the CRN in the appropriate field and submit your request.  

Don't forget Course Prefixes!

Remember. course prefixes are not always obvious.  For example, UCO 1200 is the Course Prefix and Course Number for "First Year Seminar."  Go to advising.appstate.edu/prefixes for a complete list.   

How To: Drop a Class

To add or drop a class, you should be logged into AppalNet Self Service. Select the Student Tab, then Registration.   

How To: Waitlist a Class

This video will highlight how to add yourself to a waitlist, however, not all classes offer a waitlist option and waitlisting does not guarantee a seat in the course. Learn more about waitlists here.

How To: Add a Chemistry Lecture and Lab

Do you need a chemistry class for your major?  Review this important information and watch the video below before you register for chemistry.

  • Do you meet the pre-requisite for the Chemistry class you are trying to add? 

  • The Chemistry department uses reserved seating in their lab sections.  Reserved Seating allows departments to designate a certain number of seats in a class for specific majors.  For example, there may be 3 seats available for each of these intended majors in each chemistry lab section:  biology, chemistry, nursing, nutrition, exercise science, etc. There are also a few seats reserved in each section for all other majors.

  • You will likely need to try several lab sections before finding one reserved for your intended major.  

  • If you can't get a seat after several attempts, email era@appstate.edu or call 828-262-2167 to talk to an advisor to find out which sections might still have a seat for your intended major.

  • If you still can’t get into CHE, please complete the Chemistry Reserved Seating Survey.  The Chemistry Reserved Seating Survey is NOT a waiting list. Periodically the department reviews the list and as chemistry seats become available they will notify you by email.  

Tips to Add a Chemistry Lecture/Lab Combination!

  1. Continue to hunt for open CHE lab & lecture seats combinations. 

  2. Try to build a schedule with other classes you need and be willing to change your schedule to get a CHE seat .

  3. Email era@appstate.edu or call 828-262-2167 to talk to an advisor to find out which chemistry lab sections might still have a seat for your intended major.
