Tips for Navigating the new FSU Course Registration Portal

Registration is stressful for everyone, especially Criminology & Criminal Justice Students! Because the University has introduced a new program for course registration, we thought we’d provide a few helpful tips to make the process a little easier.

Tip #1: Make sure you’re searching for the correct term (Spring 2014)

Tip #2: Choose your course career (Graduate or Undergraduate)

Tip #3: Uncheck “Show open classes only.” You may have to sort through a few classes that are full, but you’ll be able to find out if a class you want or need to take becomes available on a day or time that better fits your schedule.

Tip #4: Click on the green “Additional Search Criteria” box and choose your location (“Online” or “Main Tallahassee”). Also type “CR” in the Academic Organization box. (We do NOT recommend searching by course subject! Not only will you have to perform this search several times using CCJ, CJE, CJC, etc., but you will have to filter out classes that may not count toward your degree.)

Tip #5: Click on the “View All” text in the blue box below each course title. This allows you to view every section of the course.

Tip #6: Click on the section number to get more details about the course. This is where you can find the title of the special topics course, book information, whether the course is approved for Criminology & Criminal Justice majors, etc.

Tip #7: Call the Advising Office at 850-644-4050 if you have any questions!
