PSA Class Scheduling Procedures

 

Follow these steps to make your semester schedule.

    1. Get a copy of your PSA plan if you don’t already have it. As a PSA student, don’t ever look at Degree Planner! This will only confuse and mislead you. While at TAMU-CC, your PSA plan is your degree plan. Go here to get it. Under the heading “Participating College/Departments at Texas A&M University” click on the college your major is located. Click on the catalog year for your plan. Print a copy. Here is a video or transcript showing these steps.
    2. Check off the classes you have already taken and are currently taking. Here is a video or transcript showing how to compare a class you have taken to one on your PSA plan. Here is a video or transcript showing transferability of classes to your PSA plan. Dual credit classes can count for required and additional coursework. AP credit can only count in the additional coursework. Here is a video or transcript about Dual and AP credit for PSA.
    3. Determine the classes you need. For spring registration, you must complete your Required Coursework. In the Additional Coursework, you might see several categories that do not list specific classes. Go here to get a list of classes you can take at TAMU-CC that will fulfill these categories.
    4. Make your schedule. You must schedule a Learning Community and additional classes. Please watch this video or read transcript to find and schedule a Learning Community. If all the Learning Communities have classes you have already taken, contact me about registering for an Independent First-Year Seminar (UCCP). Watch this video or read transcript to find and schedule additional classes. If you are scheduling a freestanding (not part of a Learning Community) science class with a lab, you must register for the lecture, lab, and lab safety seminar. Otherwise you will get a pre-req error. Here is a video or transcript showing how to find the safety seminar.
    5. E-mail your schedule to me. Be sure to include the CRN numbers, class prefix and number, and days and times. Also, tell me what PSA major you are following so I can compare this to what I have. I will review your schedule and get back to you if there are any problems. If you want to see me regarding your schedule, you can, it is not required. Use the link below to make an appointment.

Go here to see the registration schedule to determine when you register. For registration purposes, your classification is determined by your completed hours plus your enrolled hours. Here is a related video or transcript.

Before you register, make sure you don’t have any holds. Here is a video or transcript on how to find and remove your holds. Here is a video or transcript showing how to register for classes. Once registration is over, I will go through all PSA schedules and make sure everyone is in the correct classes. If there are any problems, I will notify you. If you change your schedule after I have reviewed it, please notify me. Failure to do so could result in taking the wrong classes and not qualifying for PSA.
