Fall 2008 Advisement begins on Thursday, April 10!
All students will register using the ITP registration system (see below) by entering their course preferences in the system by Friday, April 25 at 5:00 p.m.
It all begins here:
Fall 2008 Course Information is available at the link marked "Fall 2008 Course Info".
Fall 2008 Advisement
To schedule your appointment with your advisor, simply click on "Fall 2008 Advisement Appointments" under highlighted FAQs, and follow the instructions.
(Danny Rozin's advisees should note that his appointment times include hours for Thursday, April 10, so please sign up ASAP.)
ITP Registration System
For stage one of the process, you will need to go to:
Under Highlighted FAQs, click on Fall 2008 Registration
Log in as normal, using your NetID and your password.
Please read and follow the instructions to enter your Fall 2008 course preferences. All students are encouraged to enter their course preferences as soon as possible, and at the latest, prior to meeting with their advisor. (It will be easier for your advisor to advise you if s/he has a sense of what courses you're interested in prior to meeting with you.)
If you are doing your thesis this semester you must begin entering it in the projects database by clicking on the link on the help page titled "Add/Update Thesis Proposal".
Please create a project. Then go back in and edit it, filling in the four required fields: Abstract, Personal Statement, Context and Implementation. This should be done prior to your meeting with your academic advisor.
You have until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 25th to enter your course selections. Unlike with ALBERT, the date and time that you submit your choices will have no bearing on your final schedule, provided you enter your selections by the deadline. You can even go back into the system and change your selections as many times as you want as long as you finalize your choices by April 25th at 5:00 p.m.
At 5:00 p.m. on April 25th, the program will automatically create a course schedule for every person who entered their course selections on the site by examining how each registrant prioritized his/her choices and determining their enrollment in a given course by priority when possible, and randomly when necessary.
The schedules will then be downloaded into ALBERT by 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 1 at the latest.
NOTE: This process will both enroll students in the courses, and generate waiting lists for courses that close due to registration based on the priority assigned to each student given how they ordered their preferences.
PLEASE NOTE: ONLY THE FIRST TEN ON THE GENERATED WAITING LIST WILL BE ENTERED INTO ALBERT. If the registration result generated by the program puts you 11th or further down on the waiting list, you WILL NOT be waitlisted for the course in the initial round.
The second stage of the process will commence on Wednesday, May 7 at 11:00 a.m., when all students who have been advised will be activated to use ALBERT to register for any open seats in courses that may remain, put themselves on waiting lists for the courses that have closed, and make whatever other changes they may desire to make at that time.
Remember that you will already be registered for whatever courses the program assigned to you based on your preferences and your luck. You need to log onto ALBERT on Wednesday, May 7 only if you want to add or waitlist yourself for one or more courses that you did not initially consider, or if you need to make changes to your registration.
