Step 3: Register in your Courses

Register in your courses on Bear Tracks and create a timetable

Once you have chosen your courses, select the “Search for Classes” link in Bear Tracks to see when each class is offered. Use this to put together your weekly schedule.

Use the online timetable planner or the "Schedule Builder" tool in Bear Tracks to make this easier. Special Note: The Schedule Builder is a tool used to create a visual of your timetable. Once you create a timetable using Schedule Builder, you must remember to actually "ENROLL" in your courses.


If you do not wish to use the Schedule Builder, simply use the “Add” and “Drop” functions to build your timetable.

Go ahead and register for your classes and remember to print your timetable to ensure it looks the way you want.
