    Your registration time ticket is located in the Fall 2023 Enrollment section on the MyAccount Tasks page.

    How do I find my schedule?

    • When your time ticket begins, review your classes on MyAccount under the "Review Course Schedule" task in the Fall 2023 Enrollment section.

    • Transfer students receive their schedule during a 1x1 virtual advising appointment with their academic advisor. Appointments begin May 17.

    This guide includes instructions for viewing and making adjustments to your course schedule. Students typically do not change their schedule, but may choose to change a class or time based on their preference.

Review Registration Resources

After you view your course schedule, the Advising Center recommends that you review the following registration resources. This includes information about transfer courses.

  1. Review your Degree Audit

    What is a Degree Audit?

    Your Degree Audit is a custom checklist of all your courses (major, general education, Bible, or Torrey) and graduation requirements

    Understanding Degree Audit video

    Review this video for instructions on how to view and use your Degree Audit.

  2. View a sample graduation plan, known as a Course Sequence.

    See more instructions on how to view the Course Sequence

    Review the Course Sequence table to understand how many credits per semester are estimated for your major. The course sequence is only a generic guide, and oftentimes, courses can be adjusted to each student’s need or preference. In your first year, you will be invited to create your own customized semester-by-semester plan with your Academic Advisor.

  3. Check for Transfer Credit
