The Ready.Set.Register. Fair Is Your One-Stop-Shop
to Prep for Fall 2016 Registration
Lubbock, Texas– Want to get a jumpstart on next semester’s registration? The good news is that you don’t have to run all over campus trying to clear any registration holds, meet with your advisor or get the information you need. Make plans to attend the Ready.Set.Register Fair on Wednesday, March 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to get ready to register – all in one convenient location! This is the first event of its kind at Texas Tech University, and you don’t want to miss it.
The key to successful registration is planning. We encourage all students to seek advisement prior to registration. Advising is more than just choosing classes. Academic advisers assist students in developing intellectual potential and exploring educational opportunities and life goals. Many people in the campus community contribute to the advising process, including faculty, staff, students, and professional advisers.
You can have the perfect schedule, but if you have Registration Holds or are without a Time Ticket, it won’t do you any good. Your assigned academic advisor is the only person authorized to issue a Time Ticket to you. In addition, holds will prevent you from registering and can only be resolved by the office that created them.
The purpose of the fair is to help students overcome any obstacles to registering and help them prepare for their next academic term. These obstacles may include not only registration holds, but also academic difficulties, financial aid problems, and uncertainty about their academic goals and plans. At the Fair, you can also get information about free campus services.
You are ready! Now that you’ve gone through some important elements of preparing for scheduling and registration with your advisor, you are ready to move forward. Students will register according to classification. Students will not be permitted to register prior to their assigned date.
