Spring 2022 registration begins on November 18, 2021, with MESA Priority starting on Wednesday Nov 22, 2021.
Check your Registration Status in AccessRio to see your specific day and time and whether you have priority registration. You will not get priority registration if you have not participated in AEWs and/or other MESA events as required.
NOTE: Only enroll in courses on your educational plan. Contact Dr. Spieler, Erik Belmal, or Viviana if you need to make changes to your educational plan.
Before registration starts, please do the following:
- Develop a reasonable schedule in your Google calendar or use this Excel for Schedule
- Please note for your 4-unit math/science course you need to plan a minimum of 12 hours of studying, 15 hours for your chemistry courses.
- Schedule 6 hours for your non-STEM general education courses.
- Your schedule will include for each course: AEW, Bullet Point Reading, Bullet Point Notes, and Bullet Point Concepts, and the bulk of it will probably be doing homework!
- Work with us if you need help!!
Course Selection: Spring 2022. Some courses are remote, some are in person. We are suggesting sections, so you have other MESA students to collaborate with.
- AVOID courses that interfere with MESA Hour and your AEW. If possible, don’t enroll in any courses during MESA Hour or your AEWs. (Speak to Dr. Spieler or Erik before you do)
- Don’t take 3 STEM classes unless it is on your ed-plan and check with Dr. Spieler or Erik.
- Don’t take math and chemistry on the same day. Enroll in the following sections if possible:
- Chem 120: Take section 31216, If that is full, take 31208, 36035 or36036. Don’t take the Friday class.
- Chem 130: Take any section 31222, 31284, or 38517
- Math 175: Take section 38097 (with 37945), or 37946 (syn online)
- Math 180: Take section 37953 in person or 37954 (syn online), 38418.
- Math 190: Take section 36126, 35585, 31576 or 38005 (syn online)
- Math 191: Take Section 31511, 38098. If you want a night class, take 35565 (syn online).
- Math 250: Both sections are in person. The AEW is after the morning section 31500.
- Math 251: The new combo class that combines Math 260 and Math 270. This class is a BEAR! Take only one other STEM course if you enroll in this course.
- Use the AEW schedule to see which courses and AEWs make for the better schedule (Remember, you want some time to review after class).
- Bio Majors: Double check whether you need Phy 212. Phy 212 is no longer a prerequisite for Phy 213. However, you must have passed Math 191 and Phy 211 to take Phy 213.
