Learn To Use SIS and Plan Your Schedule

Take some time to log into your Student Center in SIS and learn the Student Information System.

  • Plan your schedule using "Class Search" in SIS, add 15-20 College Classes to your shopping cart before you attend Summer Orientation.
  • You may add closed or wait listed classes to your shopping cart - there may be seats available during your course enrollment sessions.

Be Prepared for Course Advising and Enrollment During Summer Orientation

You must bring a laptop, tablet, or smartphone to use at Summer Orientation which is when you will enroll in your fall classes. (You will find it much easier to use a laptop than a smartphone.)

You will be assigned an enrollment appointment which will give you access to enroll in classes using SIS (the Student Information System). There will be academic deans, faculty advisors, and student orientation leaders who will assist with academic information and advice about fall course enrollment.

Watch this video to learn more about UVA Course Codes that will help you choose the most appropriate classes for your first semester.
