Registration Instructions

Self-Service Registration for Winterim and Spring 2015 terms begins Monday, October 27, 2014, and ends December 1, 2014.

Before You Register:

  1. Advisor Appointments
    It is recommended that you make an appointment with your advisor to discuss your schedule. Go prepared with a proposed schedule (based on your chosen major in your catalog year) when you meet with your advisor. (You can print out a blank Schedule Worksheet from the “Registration Services” main page (on myTFC), –Weekly Class Planner). If you do not know who your advisor is, click on “Demographic Information” in myTFC Self-Service.  The complete Course Schedule is available as a .pdf from the Course Schedules link on the Registrar’s Office web page (www.tfc.edu/academics/registrar).

    1. Think about what Service and Outreach Ministry you want to take this semester. Make sure to add this to your schedule when you register. The prefix code for your Student Ministry is SAO (for Service and Outreach).
    2. Registration/Advising Tips
      -You should check the Majors Notes for both your Department and the Bible and Theology Department. These can be found on the Registration Services Dropdown list on myTFC.
      -Follow your major program outline in your catalog for selection of courses.
      -You should not register for any course more than one class year level beyond your current class year, i.e. a sophomore should not register for a senior level course.
      -Responsibility for choosing the correct courses belongs to you. Each student must carry full responsibility for completing his/her own program of study as set forth according to the proper catalog. Advisors cannot be held liable for student failure to meet specified requirements.

 

When to Register:

You will be able to begin your schedule selection process according to the following schedule by Class Year (based on current hours earned):

Seniors and Juniors: Beginning Monday, October 27, 2014

Sophomores: Beginning Thursday, October 30, 2014

Freshmen: Beginning Monday, November 3, 2014

Self-Service Winterim/Spring Registration ends December 1, 2014.

How to Register:

  1. On your scheduled day to select your classes, sign into myTFC using your TFC email ID and password. Click the Registration Services link in the Quick-Launch Menu and select “Registration”. Then click on “Traditional Courses” and select the term for which you are registering. Click on the Section Search to find courses to add to your shopping cart by entering the course prefix or keyword. You will need to be familiar with course prefixes in order to choose your desired curriculum categories. Once you find the desired course, click the “add” button to the right of the course to place the course in your cart. Repeat the Section Search until you have added all desired courses to your cart.
  2. Click “Next” and review your schedule. After reviewing your schedule, click “Next” again and this will label your courses as “Awaiting Advisor Approval.”
  3. Click “Finish” to submit your course selections to your advisor for review and approval. Once your advisor approves, you will be notified via your TFC email account. Be sure to complete the entire Schedule Selection process by submitting your schedule to your advisor for approval.
  4. You are encouraged to print out a copy of your class schedule to verify the classes for which you registered. It is also recommended that you print a new copy of your schedule each time you make any changes to it.

 

Problems Registering?

  1. If you receive an error message that a Course Prerequisite has not been met, you may not register for that course. If you feel that this error message is incorrect, please contact the Registrar’s Office.
  2. If you receive an error message that Instructor Permission is required, you may “Request Permission” by viewing your cart and selecting the link “Request Permission” next to the appropriate course. This course will prevent you from submitting your other courses until you receive permission in Self-Service for the specified course. Once you receive notification from the Instructor that the permission request has been approved, then you must follow through by submitting the course to your advisor. Note: If you are in a rush to secure your other courses, then you can de-select the course (un-check the little box in front of the course) which is pending permission and submit the other courses to your advisor for approval.
  3. If you receive an error message that a class is closed, you may not register for the class through Self-Service. Please return a completed “Request to Enter a Closed Class” form (available in the Registrar’s Office) to the Registrar’s Office for manual processing.
  4. If you receive an error message that you are attempting to register for more credit hours than you are allowed, then only submit to your advisor the classes that add up to the total number of hours that you are allowed. The remaining course(s) that put you in overload will have to be added via a “Course Overload” form that is available in the Registrar’s Office. You must be approved by both your advisor and the Registrar to take a course overload. Hours greater than 19 incur overload tuition rates.
  5. Special class arrangements such as Directed or Independent Study courses will need to be processed manually in the Registrar’s Office.

 

Taking a TFC Online Class?

Online classes are added to your schedule in the same way as your other classes through your Self-Service account. To register for an online class (sections numbered OL1A or OL1B, DAYS and LOCATION = ONLINE), add it to your cart in the same way as other classes. The cost of online courses for resident students is the same as resident course tuition and will therefore be included in your tuition flat-rate block tuition charge for 12-19 hours.  Section OL1A courses are offered the first 8 weeks of the semester (Session A) and section OL1B courses are offered the second 8 weeks of the semester (Session B).

Note: Online courses may not be taken if it places a student in an academic overload situation (more than 18 hours). Resident students must register for any online courses by the end of the regular registration and drop/add period for that resident term.

Financial Aid and Student Accounts Reminders:

  • After scheduling your classes, verify your Financial Aid status and Student Account balance in the myFinances Tab of myTFC, and care for your remaining balance accordingly.
  • If using the NelNet Payment Plan, select your payment plan asap for the best option.
  • Payment may be made online
  • Final payment in full deadline for Winterim and Spring is December 1, 2014.
