Tips for Tele-Bears

I know most of us just finished midterms and it seems like the semester just started but it's almost time to sign up for classes for next semester! Remember, it's never too early to start planning your future courses.

This is my first semester at CAL and I've only used Tele-Bears once. I don't have much experience to share in that respect so I've asked some of my fellow PALS and some others on campus about the most important things to keep in mind for registering on Tele-Bears.

I think the most important tip is to use your phase 1 appointment time to register for the classes you need and that you know are going to fill up quickly. It is a good idea to use strategy ahead of time and see which classes are popular prerequisites and make sure you get into them by signing up in phase 1 . Use phase 2 to enroll in classes that are less popular and you may not necessarily need for your major.

One student suggested enrolling in more units than you intend on staying in for the semester. That way if one of the classes turns out to not be what you expected or were looking for then you will be able to drop one class without having to scramble for units. Another suggestion was to enroll in a class even if you cannot get into the discussion section of your choice. In other words, enroll in another discussion section because the class may completely fill up if you wait list for the discussion section you want.

I hope this helps!
