Guidelines for Points

Before meeting with your advisor - please print your course selections! You can use this worksheet to take with you to your meeting.

When you speak with your advisor, talk to him/her about points, but have some idea yourself about the number of points you think you should assign.  For help, look at last year's points to see a list of courses with higher demand than availability.

  • If you really want a course that is in high demand, you must decide whether or not you should use most of your points for that course and take your chances on the other block(s). Beginning science courses are high demand courses; they require a lot of points.
  • Note how many times the course is taught during the academic year. Obviously your opportunity to get into a class is enhanced if the course is offered many times during the year.
  • You may have discovered that some professors are in high demand; again, a lot of points will probably be required.
  • Be sure to check under “Prerequisites” before signing up for a class. If you do not have a prerequisite, you won’t be allowed to take the class.
  • If you are on campus, talk to other students and the resident adviser in your residence hall. They are very familiar with the point system.
  • See our list of courses that had a higher demand than availability last year, "Last Year's Points"
