Scheduling Classes

During your orientation, you will meet individually with an academic advisor. At that meeting, your advisor will assist you in selecting courses for your first semester. After your advising session, you will be given the opportunity to register for the courses you selected through the online registration system in myWings.

To get the most out of your advising session, you need to be prepared to ask questions and answer questions that will help determine which courses are appropriate for your skills, abilities, and interests. Before your advising appointment, it's important that you take some time to do the following:

Review the General Education link and the Prerequisites for Intended Majors link. This information will help you select courses you would like to take during your first semester.

Create a tentative list of courses. Most full-time students take approximately 15 to 16 credits during their first fall semester. Think about the number of credits you want to take while creating a tentative list of courses for the fall. It is important that you also choose two alternate courses to substitute for a class that may be filled by the time you register. Please note that your math placement test results may determine some of the courses you will take during your first semester.

Sample Course Schedule - (example given below is for a nutrition major)

Typically a fall semester should consist of about five courses.

  • 1st Course - a communication course
  • 2nd Course - a math course. This course will depend on your major, any accelerated math credit you have earned, or a predictive analytics model.
  • 3rd & 4th Courses - these courses will be based on your intended major.
  • 5th Course - this course can be for general education, based on your intended major, or an elective
16 credits
Courses Course # Course Title Credits

Course 2      MAC 1105      College Algebra 3 credits
Course 3 BSC 1010C General Biology I 4 credits

Course 5 POS 2041 Intro to American Government 3 credits
Total Credits      16 credits
Alternate PHI 2010 Intro to Philosophy 3 credits
Alternate GEO 2420 Cultural Geography 3 credits


Create a list of questions for your advisor. If you are unclear about general education and major requirements, write down specific questions to ask your advisor. If you are exploring disciplines and have questions about potential majors, list the questions you have. If applicable, ask your advisor about any credits you are receiving through AP, IB, AICE, dual enrollment, or CLEP exams. If UNF has received college credit for particular courses, your advisor will have that information. If the advisor does not have the information, don't panic. Inform your advisor about the credits you will receive so you will not enroll in a course already completed. Once the semester begins, you should contact One-Stop Student Services to determine if the official test scores or transcripts have been received.

There is a lot of information to cover during your first advising meeting. If you find you did not have enough time to get all your questions answered, or if you need clarification on any academic information given to you during orientation, we encourage you to contact your advisor early in the semester.
