FAQ: What should I do to prepare for my courses?

Be sure to download and review your semester timetable a week before classes begin. The timetable should provide information about the course, where it is being held, the instructor’s name, and final exam date and time information. Because things sometimes change, it is a good idea to review your timetable just before the first week of classes.

You may be able to obtain a copy of the course outline for some courses via a Blackboard course site, a Departmental website or an instructor’s website. If so, review the outline so that you become familiar with the course expectations and requirements.  

Also, visit the University Bookstore and find out what textbooks are listed for each course. You may be able to purchase these textbooks and be ready for the first week of classes. Textbook information may also be included along with the course information provided when you register.
