An Academic Advisor assists a student in pursuing their educational goals by facilitating access to the full range of learning opportunities and services available at Augusta university.

Learn more about how to create a schedule, the registration process, adjusting schedule, and how to move off the wait list. Remember, to register for your next term courseS, you must meet with your assigned Academic Advisor. Your advisor enters your course options into your JagTrax account, allowing you to register through Schedule Planner. If you try to access Schedule Planner without meeting with your advisor, your course options will be blank.You will use Schedule Planner for all registration and schedule adjustment needs until you are no longer advised by the Academic Advisement Center.

Registration Instructions

 

How do I create my schedule?

 

  • Log into POUNCE.
  • Click STUDENT.
  • Click REGISTRATION.
  • Click SCHEDULE PLANNER.

To ensure the best results, select the following:

  • Term: Spring 2022
  • Course Type: Open and Full with Waitlist Open
    • In order to wait list yourself for a currently closed section of a course, you must select this course type option.
  • Campuses: All Campuses
    • Do not select any campuses as the Schedule Planner will only show you the options for the Augusta campus; deselecting options may skew the generated results.
  • Part of Term: All Parts of Term

Courses from your JagTrax Planner do not automatically update to the homepage. You will need to manually "Add Course(s)" (previously discussed with your advisor) to your homepage, by:

  • Click ADD COURSES.
  • Select all courses you wish to generate a schedule for
  • Click ADD.
  • Click BACK.

Next to each course is anOPTIONS icon. Using the OPTIONS icon, you can select sections that meet your time, location, and professor preferences.

You may find it useful to compare the sections listed in Schedule Planner with those listed in the Schedule of Classes, as the planner does not show course restrictions and does not update seat availability in live time. 

Once you have selected the sections you wish to generate schedules with, click SAVE and CONTINUE.

Breaks are optional but can be useful for blocking out certain periods of time during your day/week where you are working, involved in a collegiate sport, or simply just want an hour break between classes. 

It is best practice not to put too many breaks into the system as it will significantly limit how many schedule options are available to you.

To add a break ...

  • Click ADD BREAK.
  • Enter the days nad times for your break.
  • Click SAVE and CONTINUE.
  • Click GENERATE SCHEDULES.
  • Hover over the magnifying glass icons next to each schedule option to view the schedule at a glance.
  • Click VIEW next to a schedule for a more in-depth view of a schedule.
  • Aim for a balance schedule with time in-between classes for pre-, study, travel, meals, etc.

Note: some classes like wellness, lab sciences, math, psychology, etc. meet on different campuses and will require at minimum 50 minutes of travel time between them. Pay very close attention to which campuses you are selecting as the system will not prevent you from registering for classes on two campuses back-to-back though you will receive a message from the Registrar to adjust your schedule later.

Click SEND TO SHOPPING CART when viewing your preferred schedule. 

The shopping cart DOES NOT reserve your place in the course. It bookmarks your classes for registration.

  • Log into POUNCE.
  • Click “Student.”
  • Click “Registration.”
  • Click "Select Term."
  • Click “Student Detail Schedule” or “Week at a Glance.”

How do I register for classes?
