Priority Enrollment Tips for Students with Disabilities


  1. Priority enrollment for Fall 2020 semester will begin on October 26, 2020.  Records and Registration are now live   
  2. Scheduling for online enrollment is based on credit hours.  Students who have the highest number of earned credit hours will be allowed to enroll first.  
  3. Before you enroll online make sure that you have been advised by the appropriate college, have met prerequisite requirements, received special permission as needed for any of your classes, and cleared any STOPS.
  4. Plan your schedule before enrolling.  Make sure you have all of the necessary information for enrollment.  You will need the department name, course number, and section number as illustrated in the following example:    
    Department name:  ENGL     Course:  1113     Section:  001
  5. Take the following things into consideration when selecting classes/sections:
    • Have you planned for enough time to get to each class?
    • Have you allowed time between classes if you require extended time for exams?
    • Have you allowed time between classes to process the information, to study for the next class, or to get organized and refocus for the next class?
    • Is the facility accessible?  If not, can you take a different section or do you need to request that the class be relocated to an accessible facility?
    • Can you check the reading requirements or book list for the class?
    • Do you need assistance in obtaining books/materials in an alternative format?
  6. Make sure that the class time is workable for your internal schedule or disability needs:
    • If you aren't a morning person try not to schedule early morning classes!
    • Do you have any difficulty with joints or body aches in the early morning?
    • Are you more subject to any types of seizures or changes in blood sugar levels during certain times of the day?
  7. If you have special dietary or medication needs make sure that your class schedule doesn't interfere with the times you need to eat or take medication.
  8. If you have trouble concentrating or have difficulty processing information you may experience more success in classes that last only 50 minutes as opposed to a class that runs for 1 hour 15 minutes.
  9. If you need more continuity or practice time in class, courses that meet three times per week may be more conducive to your learning style than courses that meet only once or twice per week.
  10. Consider the factors that are important to best meet your learning style:
    • Class format (small group v. large lecture)
    • Teaching style
    • Exam format (essay v. multiple choice)
    • Reading requirements
    • Number of credit hours (desired or manageable v. required)
  11. Plan for success!
