Advising Checklist: Your Responsibilities

  • Schedule an appointment with your major advisor. Go to my.newpaltz.edu page to find your Progress Report and advisor’s name.
  • Review your Progress Report and graduation requirements. This is your responsibility, not the advisor’s.
  • Review Spring 2022 Schedule of Classes (found at https://www.newpaltz.edu/classes/ ) before meeting with your advisor
  • Check prerequisites, minimum grades and any restrictions for the classes you plan to take by clicking on the CRN link in the Schedule of Classes. If you do not have the appropriate prerequisites, you will be blocked from registering for that class.
  • Build your desired schedule in MySchedulePlanner, found in my.newpaltz.edu>Registration>MySchedulePlanner. Choose several backups, in case your first choices fill. Tutorials are here.
  • Meet with your advisor to review your Progress Report and major plan. You will be given a “release” to register online at your appointed time assignment. Your registration time assignment is found in my.newpaltz.edu > Registration > Time Assignment.
  • Clear all holds before registration. If you have a hold on your account you will not be allowed to register at all – even if you have a “release” from your advisor. Here’s where to look for holds.
  • Register for classes at your scheduled time assignment by going to my.newpaltz.edu > Registration > MySchedulePlanner and adding your preferred schedule into cart and selecting “Register.”  Make sure to check course availability prior in case some courses have filled up.
