Mini Modules - Navigating College Administrations

Course Registration

These shorter modules can be deployed as needed for clients looking to register for courses at a community college or initiate the transfer process. Each objective can be a useful lesson in EF skills as well – students will need to keep track of multiple deadlines and work efficiently to stay on track. While attention should still be paid to the process being employed and the transferable skills that the client can learn, these sessions will necessarily be more oriented towards a more tangible product and focus more on being productive in sessions to ensure that important administrative tasks are completed. Consider adding a Course Registration block for a college-aged Academic EF client who is not enrolled in courses or a Transfer block for an Academic EF client who is struggling to fit in at his current school. 

Week 1 - Selecting Courses
  • Client will be able to identify a few skills or subjects that he would be interested in learning (refer to Career Brainstorming and Values sessions for guidance)
  • Client will create a master schedule indicating his availability and preferred schedule based on his pre-existing commitments
  • Client will complete the SDS profile exercise if he has not already done so; client can review the report prior to the next session
  • Client will familiarize himself the course registration platform used by his school and add chosen course(s) to his schedule
  • Work with the client to identify courses that align with his schedule and interest. Discuss the number of courses that the client plans to take this semester
  • Conduct preliminary research on important deadlines for course registration at the client’s college or university
  • Store online portal log-in credentials for easy reference



Week 2 - Creating a Schedule
  • Client will finalize his enrollment in chosen courses by registering online or in-person if needed
  • Client will develop an academic calendar incorporating classes, discussion sections, major assignments, and outside activities
  • Client will locate and store relevant course syllabi and contact information for his professors
  • Work with the client to identify courses that align with his schedule and interest. Discuss the number of courses that the client plans to take this semester
  • Conduct preliminary research on important deadlines for course registration at the client’s college or university
  • Store online portal log-in credentials for easy reference
