4.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Spring Course Registration Approaching:
It's hard to believe, but Spring registration is approaching quickly. You can view the online schedule of courses at www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc starting on Friday, October 9. The course descriptions for honors courses should be available by October 22 at www.honors.ufl.edu

To find your spring registration start time, visit ISIS, www.isis.ufl.edu , and click on "Registration Prep". This is the time you may begin registering for spring courses online. Note that you do not meet with an advisor to register - everything is done on ISIS. Registration times begin on November 2.

Honors course registration for students in their first three semesters at UF (i.e. current freshmen and sophomores) will take place Thursday and Friday, October 29 and 30, from 9:00am-5:00pm. You will only be able to register for an honors course during this time, and you can register for up to one course per day. Honors course registration takes place on ISIS just as you would for your regular courses, www.isis.ufl.edu . Students who have moved beyond their third semester in Honors will be able to register for available honors courses during their regular registration time. Students in their first three semesters at UF can register for additional honors courses as well during their regular registration time. Note, there is no limit to the number of honors courses you can take each semester.

**All students should check ISIS to view any holds.**

All holds must be removed prior to registering for courses. In most cases, an honors advisor *cannot* remove these holds for you.

All engineering majors must meet with an advisor in engineering (*not honors*) to get your engineering advising hold removed. To view the list of engineering advisors by department, visit http://www.eng.ufl.edu/studentaffairs/advising/index.php

All first-year students must remove their alcohol education holds prior to registering. For more information, visit https://interwork.sdsu.edu/echug2/?id=UFL&hfs=true

Please plan ahead now, so there won't be any problems once registration begins.

Remember, if you want to meet with an honors advisor, please call 352-846-6083 to make an appointment, rather than e-mailing an advisor directly. You may also stop by our walk-in advising hours to answer quick advising questions from 2:00-4:00pm on Tuesdays - Thursdays.
