Picking your possible courses
Browse through the course listings to pick out classes that:
- Sound amazing and you are completely excited to get started
- Fulfill GER and major requirements and sound OK
TIP: Do you really want a course this term that can meet a specific GER? Remember, the course listings allow you to search for all of the courses in a term that can meet that GER:
- Fit into your schedule and don’t sound like they would become the bane of your existence. (Keep in mind, you do need 128 hours to graduate.)
- Put those Excel skills to good use and make a list of your favorites.
Are there less than four courses on your list?
You’re definitely not going to get a full schedule this way, so unless you don’t want a full schedule or you really like running around begging professors to get into their class, you’ll probably want to repeat Steps 1 and 2 in this lesson. (maybe it's time to focus on step 1.C?) Keep in mind, a normal course load at Furman is 16 credits (four 4-credit courses).
Are there more than 4 courses on your list?
You’re on the right track! Remember, the more course options you put in your ICE picks, the more likely you are to get a full schedule through ICE. A word of warning though; don’t put anything in your ICE choices that you absolutely don’t want to take; chances are you’ll probably get it. Just because you’ve picked out more than 4 courses doesn’t mean that you will end up with a full schedule, but your chances definitely will go up.
