6 Registration Worksheet
7 Complete (in full) the Student Information and Future Major sections of the registration worksheet. Remember to write your first and last name. No nicknames, please!!
8 Registration Worksheet Please check off all credit by exam (AP, CLEP, etc.) and/or college credit that you have earned or attempted.

Once you have completed the front page of the registration worksheet, please double check that all information is accurate before signing your name.
9 Credit by Exam & Course Equivalencies
10 1. Communication If you checked any of the English Composition courses on page 1, cross out this item. If you did not check any of the English Composition courses on the previous page, ENGL 104 will be your communications option.
11 2. Mathematics Select the appropriate math. –If you have any Calculus credit: consult with an advisor. –Math Placement Exam (MPE) 22 : o MATH 151 is Calculus for Engineers o Math 171 is Calculus for Technical Science –MPE < 22: Refer to Math Decision handout –MPE < 10: Consult with an advisor for options NOTE: Advisors may drop a math course from a students schedule if he/she has not taken the online math assessment. Please go to to access the test.http://mathassessment.tamu.edu
12 3. US History and Political Science History: –If you checked any of the U.S. History boxes, cross out the History (HIST) courses under this item. –If you did not check any of these boxes, HIST 105, 106, or 226 will be your History options.
13 3. US History and Political Science Political Science: –If you checked any of the Government courses, cross out the Political Science (POLS) courses under this item. –If you did not check any of these courses, POLS 206 & 207 will be your Political Science options. NOTE: When you register, sign up for only one class from the US History and Political Science category.
14 4. Science If you checked one of the science courses on page 1 (ex. Chemistry, Biology, Physics, etc.), consult with an advisor. If you did not check any of the science courses, the science courses listed under your intended major will be choices for your science credit. –Remember to only choose 1 from the list when you register! –PHYS 218- Prerequisite: MATH 151 or 171 or registration therein.
15 5. Social Science If you checked one of the social science courses on page 1 (ex. Economics, Psychology, or Sociology), consult with an advisor. If you did not check any of the social science courses, any of the courses listed will be options for your social science credit. –Remember to only choose 1 from the list when you register!
16 6. Humanities Applied Math, Math, and Engineering… skip this item! All other technical and scientific majors refer to your options on the Course Selection worksheet.
17 7. Visual & Performing Arts Any of the courses listed under this item will be options for your Visual & Performing Arts credit. Remember to only choose 1 from the list when you register!
18 8. Physical Education KINE 198 & 199 will be your Physical Education options. –Athletes: You will receive credit for Kine 199. –Aggie Band: You must sign up for KINE Do not sign up for 8 a.m. classes!
19 9. Additional Courses UGST 181 (1 hr): First year seminar classes. STLC 101 (2 hrs): Study skills course. MGMT 105 (3 hrs): Introduction to Business - elective credit. ISEN 101 (1 hr): Intro. to Industrial Engineering. NUEN 101 (1 hr): Principles of Nuclear Engineering. COSC 253 (3 hrs): Construction Material & Methods I. Note: ENGR 111 and 112 open to Engineering majors ONLY, not General Studies. There are courses that will substitute for ENGR 111 and 112
Corps of Cadets Air Force ROTC Cadets: Take AERS 101 and 105. Army ROTC Cadets: Take MLSC 121. Navy/Marine ROTC Cadets: Take NVSC 101. Fightin Texas Aggie Band: Take KINE 199 – 596.
21 Additional Notes Change of major requirements. Engineering Student Services & Academic Programs. Good grades in four-hour Calculus I & II and Sciences at Texas A&M. –Make an A or B proceed to next math or science; C or less reconsider pursuing a technical major. –History of repeated or grade excluded courses might make a student less competitive for a technical major. Acceptance to Engineering majors is based on space availability- No guarantees.
Hours: Rm 105
23 Registration Session Tomorrow, students only (GAP policy) will meet at their assigned location by 1:00pm to register for classes. No parents allowed in building. Overcrowding may pose a safety risk Important step in the development of your student Advisors will be available to answer any questions during registration.
