If you have applied for financial aid, please remember that you need to register for 6 credits per term (fall, spring, or summer).


How do I Choose my Courses?

First, gather all relevant information: your degree planning sheet with required courses for your specific degree program, work schedules, and other necessary schedules such as child care and vacation. Next, check your degree planning sheet to see which courses you need to complete your degree. Make sure you have successfully completed any prerequisites that are required. Review the schedule of classes for the courses you must complete according to your degree planning sheet. To look at the schedule of courses:

  1. Click on the My Classes tab at https://my.peirce.edu and go to the section called Course Schedules.
  2. Search for courses under the Course Search icon.

Bearing in mind your various commitments, choose the courses that are your first choice, noting section, day, and time for each. Identify possible alternate selections to use in case the sections are filled. Early in the registration period, meet with your Academic Advisor to review your choices before you try to register for any courses. When meeting with your Advisor, be sure to have your degree planning sheet available.
