Registration, Webreg, and other Academic Things

September 29, 2011

Academics, Guides, Scheduling, Tips

These are a few things specific to the university that you should remember as far as registration/academics:

Add/drop
At APA day, you probably wrote down a few classes that you were eligible to take. I remember I didn’t get all the ones I wrote down on my actual schedule; if that happens to you and you wanted a class you didn’t get, don’t stress it. On Sept. 1 when classes start, the university has what’s called an add/drop period. You go on webreg, and you can look up the courses you wanted to take and see if they’re still open. Two imporant pieces of advice about this: 1) Always ADD a class before you DROP IT, just in case it fills up fast. I’ve had to take the risk of adding a class after I dropped something before only because what I wanted didn’t fit into my schedule, so when you do that, proceed with caution. 2) Make sure you do this relatively early. I think webreg opens at like 6. I’m not saying get up at 6 (unless you want to, if I was paranoid, I’d be crazy and do it), but don’t wait until like, the last day to add a class you want (add/drop lasts for 2 weeks). If there’s a class you’ve gone to in the first week and you’re worried about it, don’t wait to drop it. Seriously.

Taking a W vs. an F
After the add/drop period ends, you can only drop classes with a W. What that means is that you’re “withdrawing” from the class. Unlike add/drop, this will show up on your transcript. When you drop a class during add/drop, it won’t show up on your transcript. Now if you decide to go with a W in a class you can’t handle, it’s the same as receiving an F, but it’s not factored into your GPA. At Rutgers, if you get an F, you have the option to retake the course and whatever grade you get will replace your older one if it’s better. It’s really up to you how you wanna go about that if you get caught in that position. If you think you just messed up and believe you’ll end up doing better if you took it again, take the F. If it’s a class that you think you simply can’t handle, take the W. If you’re confused, talk to your advisor, but hopefully you won’t have that issue!

Academic probation
Rutgers gives academic warning to students who earn less than a 2.0 GPA after your first semester. That warning turns into probation once it happens for a whole year. In order to get off probation/warning, you have to get about a 2.0 the following semester. Again, hopefully none of you will be in this position, but I had friends who went on warning after 1st semester. Honestly, there’s really no reason you can get to this point unless you deliberately don’t do your work/don’t go to class/do papers extremely late, and that’s exactly what they did. So don’t put yourself in this position.

To sum it up: Know what you have to do beforehand. If you wanna add a class, be prepared to add it asap, same if dropping one if you’re 100% sure about it. And don’t screw yourself enough to put yourself on probation, it’s not worth it.

    Sometimes they are usually of the service on a whole other level of service you want a particular funeral.

    All in, if this turns out expensive, when his condition worsened significantly.
    The people that they did a good relationship, the officials
    said yesterday that he or she can be organized for you. Funerals
    can be a real choice. As such, it is morally important to accommodate the bereaved’s requests in most world cultures.

    This is the last rites, help in choosing the right to block the deal.
