New system in place to give hardworking students the Advantage
Texas A&M University-Kingsville students will be registering a little differently for school beginning next week for the upcoming summer and fall courses. Students will use the new Advantage system of priority registration designed to reward students who work hard and are getting closer to achieving their degree.
“The new priority registration system is designed to reward students for progress toward their degree and also to make sure they have a better chance of getting the classes they need,” said Manuel Lujan, vice president for enrollment management.
“Lower division students usually have many more options on the courses they may take that apply toward their degree,” he added. “Upper division students have more limited choices, thus, the new system gives upper division students access to registration earlier.”
The new Advantage priority registration system means that those who are eligible for early registration also will be going through the advising process sooner, Lujan said.
Students in the priority one category have been notified of their option to use the Advantage system. Registration for summer and fall semesters begins Monday, March 30, for priority one and doctoral level students. Master's level students begin registration Tuesday, March 31, through Friday, April 3, depending on the number of hours taken toward their degree.
Seniors are the next in line as they often need to register for select courses in order to graduate on schedule. They begin registration Monday, April 6, through Friday, April 10. Juniors are next beginning Advantage registration Monday, April 13, through Wednesday, April15, while sophomores begin choosing classes Thursday, April 16, through Monday, April 20. Freshman may begin registering for classes Tuesday, April 21, through Monday, April 27.
All grade levels register according to the number of credit hours the student has already completed. The dates given are starting dates: students in each category may register at any time after their starting date. Advising time is one week prior to the registration starting dates.
For more information on Advantage registration, students should contact their advisor.
