Picking your possible courses

  1. 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:ice_ger.gif
    • 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.)
  2. 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.
