  • You must register for PHYS 1315 & 1115 (or PHYS 1325 & 1125) at the same time:

    1. Search for PHYSICS courses in the registration system

    2. Find a PHYS 1315 section that works with your schedule; check the box, and press "add to worksheet." Do NOT press register. Alternatively, you can write down the CRN number.

    3. Then, click on the CRN number for the lecture. Determine which labs go with your desired PHYS 1315 section (there is a note below the course title)

    4. Find a PHYS 1115 section from your list of options. Appropriate sections should work with your schedule. Check the box and press "add to worksheet." Do NOT press "register." Alternatively, you can write down the CRN number.

    5. You will be redirected to the worksheet. Your two CRN numbers should be in the boxes. Alternatively, you can type the (2) sets of CRN numbers into the worksheet.

    6. Press register/submit changes

    If you selected open lecture and labs that work with your schedule, you should be able to register. If the courses are full or interfere with other courses in your schedule, you will receive an error message.
