Planning and Enrolling in Classes

In MyBlugold CampS, you register from the Student Center. The process resembles online shopping. You search for the classes you want, plan your schedule by placing classes in your Shopping Cart, validate your classes, and enroll in them.

Note: The initial planning stage, where you place classes in your Shopping Cart, can be done prior to your registering appointment time. The actual enrollment, however, will not be accessible until your appointment time has been reached.

This page includes information on:


Planning Your Schedule

Planning your schedule allows you to place desired classes in your Shopping Cart. You may add more classes to your Shopping Cart than you plan to enroll in. You will select the classes for enrollment from those in your Shopping Cart.

  2. Check the Enrollment Dates section on the right for your Shopping Cart Appointment and your Enrollment Appointment.
    Note: The Shopping Cart Appointment is the date that you will be able to start planning your schedule and placing classes in your Shopping Cart. If you have reached the Shopping Cart date on this page, you can proceed with planning your schedule.

Grading and Credit Options

When adding a course to your shopping cart, in the Enrollment Preferences step, you may be given the option to change your grading and/or credit options.

Grading/Credit during Enrollment 

The Grading dropdown (if available) will usually default to A-F Grades Only. By clicking the dropdown, you may select Converted S/U.

By opting for A-F Grades Only, your course will be graded based on the letter grade system that ranges A through F. By opting for Converted S/U, your course grade letter grade will be converted to Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory. Any grade earned at a “C” or higher will convert to Satisfactory, and any grade earned at a “C minus” or lower will convert to Unsatisfactory.  An Unsatisfactory grade will not be computed in your semester or resident GPA, and you will not receive credits for the course.

You may decide to register a course as S/U if you know it will be difficult for you, and don’t want a low grade to affect your GPA. However, keep in mind that there are restrictions and conditions attached to registering a class as S/U. Look at the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Policy before deciding to change the grading option.

Most classes offer a set amount of credits, but some classes, such as internships and other similarly flexible courses, will offer a range of available credits to choose from. You may need to discuss with your professor and/or advisor to decide how many credits you should select for such courses.
