Advising is an important part of the Texas Wesleyan experience. This is a time to get to know your faculty advisor. You'll meet with your advisor at least once a semester to check in on how you're doing and go over what courses you're planning to take.
Print your degree audit
Print out your degree audit from your Ramlink account and use it to plan your schedule. Don't forget to bring it to your appointment with your advisor, too.

Review your courses
Take a look at your degree audit and see what classes you have left to take. Keep in mind any prerequisite courses you need to take and the order you need to take them.
As your reviewing what classes you'd like to take, think about what you want to do with your degree after graduation. Try looking at classes that will prepare you for what you want to do after you get your B.S. or B.A. in Liberal Studies.
Plan your schedule
Plan a tentative schedule of the classes you want to take. Include the section number, days of the week and time.
Are you a commuter student? If you ride with someone else to campus, keep that in mind as you plan your schedule.
Schedule an appointment with your advisor
Schedule an appointment with your advisor during his or her office hours to talk through the schedule. To make your advising appointment as productive as possible, bring your class schedule and be ready to talk about it. Together, you'll fill out a registration form with the courses approved by your advisor.
Who is my advisor?
In case you forgot, you can check who your advisor is by logging in to your Ramlink account and viewing your degree audit.
Register for class
You've done all the leg work, now it's time to register for classes. Take your signed registration form to the Registrar's Office where someone on the student records staff will register you for class. You'll be able to see your classes through your Ramlink account once they're done.
Don't forget to fill out your Request For Enrollment at Another University Form, if you plan on taking classes outside of Texas Wesleyan.
It's a good rule to visit your advisor at least once a semester, but it's even better to visit more regularly. Your advisor will help you stay on track to meet the requirements you need to graduate, and do it on time.
