Registration FAQs

Great question.  Here are the step by step directions you will need to find your advised courses:

1.      Login in to Self-Service Carolina (SSC).                                

2.      Click on the STUDENTS tab.                                                  

3.      Click on the DEGREE WORKS tab.

4.      Select your campus.

5.      Click on WORKSHEET (upper left corner).

6.      Scroll down to the bottom of your worksheet.

7.      Under the NOTES header, you will find the courses you have been advised to take in the upcoming semester(s) as well as other pertinent academic requirements. 

We understand your frustration.  Please understand that the SJMC Student Services Office will do everything in its power to help you get the courses that you need when you need them.  Please sign up for that course on the SJMC Student Services Waitlist when it becomes available.

It is important for you to understand that this waitlist is not automatic nor does it guarantee you that you will get into the course. 

An override is no longer an option for students wanting into a specific course once it is closed.  We will be monitoring our course capacity and open seats as needed per our wait list demand if we are able to. 

Seats in our courses are limited because we must maintain both accreditation standards and fire code capacity.  Asking for permission from an instructor will no longer help you get a seat in a course.  Again, we ask that you put your name on the waitlist for course that you need and we will manage it from there. 

In order to better serve our students, we are implementing a new procedure for the registration of our JOUR 499 – Special Topics courses.  Please complete the information when prompted.  Our office will be checking the course information daily.  We will contact you via email if you meet the prerequisites for the course and provide you with the information you need to register as well as a deadline to complete registration.  Please understand that we reserve the right to assign your seat to another student if you do not respond to our communication. 

Typically, you cannot get into courses outside of your major during the first week of registration.  We highly encourage you to contact that particular student services office to find out when non-majors and minors will be allowed to register for the courses you need. Though we want to, the SJMC Student Services Office cannot help with non-JOUR courses – i.e. SPTE 202, MGMT 371, ENGL 282.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
