The Schedule of Classes for Spring 2017 went live today!

You have time to build a schedule since Time Tickets won’t be released for Phase I until 10/28.

Many of our students use CourseOff to prepare their desired schedules. However, Jillann highly recommends that you utilize the GT site (Schedule of Classeslinked above) in conjunction with CourseOff to see important information such as prerequisites and more.

How do you know if you are building the schedule correctly?

  1. Download/use this documenthttp://lmcdegree.lmc.gatech.edu/wp-content/uploads//LMC-Major-Degree-Requirements-3.pdf
  2. Download/use a checklist. ALL checklists have the same page one for core and major core classes. ALL page twos are customized for your threads of choice. Checklists can be found here: http://lmcdegree.lmc.gatech.edu/lmc-forms/
  3. If you are ready to declare your threads (also known as concentrations) the steps can be found here: http://www.degreeworks.gatech.edu/images/training/concentration_mgt.pdf
    Freshman do not need to worry about doing this yet, but if you know what you would like to focus on, you may of course declare.
    Sophomores, depending on how many core and electives are filled, can usually declare their concentrations even later in their sophomore year or just after. Many people know which threads they want so go for it! If you change your mind later, that is okay too.
    Juniors and seniors should have their threads determined and entered.
  4. Once you have selected classes that you would like to take — if you know you are on track, great! If you have questions or you are mulling over some decisions, make an appointment in person with Jillann. If you are fairly certain but want a review email me your schedule (CourseOff screenshot or type it up) and send it over or book an appointment for a review.
Tips:
  • LMC 2000 is only taught in the fall semester.
  • LMC 2050 is only taught in the spring semester. You need to have taken LMC 2000 and ENGL 1102.
  • Senior Seminars are only taught in the Fall/Spring semesters. Do not wait for summer, because there isn’t one.
  • Do not make an appointment to see me to start from scratch. You must have looked through the above links/materials and have some idea of a game plan before coming by.
  • Classes can not “double-count” in one category and another. Yes, many LMC courses are humanities but you will need to choose what category you want a particular class in.
  • The only exception to double-counting are free electives. Electives MAY be counted towards a minor or certificate.
