- Check your time ticket to know when you can register.
- Know how to register through your my.evergreen account.
- If you're on a waitlist, make sure you understand how waitlists work.
- Make sure you know when and where your class meets for the first time.
- Be on time for your first class meeting—if you’re absent or late, you could lose your seat! If you truly aren’t able to be there on time or at all, be sure to e-mail your faculty to let them know, and tell them when you will be present.
