Planning Your Fall Semester Schedule

Complete the Freshman Course Planning Form by Friday, May 15, to be registered first for classes by our Advising Team. You do not need to login to RavenZone to complete the form, but you will need to access RavenZone to view your proposed schedule.

If you are unable to meet the May 15 priority deadline, submit the Freshman Course Planning Form as soon as possible.

The information you provide will allow us to prepare your proposed fall semester schedule.

In addition to placing you in courses that fulfill requirements within your major or potential major, our Advisors will place you in general education classes that are required to graduate. Don’t worry about class times or days; our advisors will assign you to course sections that do not conflict.

Not sure about what you want to study? Take a few minutes and complete the MyMajors survey to help identify a major at Benedictine that matches your interests and aptitudes. Even if you feel certain about your major, we recommend ALL freshmen take the MyMajors survey before completing the Freshman Course Planning Form.

Students who have accepted a position in one or more of these Programs of Distinction will be placed in the appropriate classes specific to their intended major(s) and program:

  • Honors
  • Gregorian Fellows Leadership
  • Dr. Wangari Maathai STEM Fellows
  • Constitutional Fellows

Steps to prepare and view your schedule

  1. Complete the Freshman Course Planning Form. Review questions and answers carefully. You may submit more than one form if corrections are necessary or your academic interests change. Our advisors will use your most recent submission to register you for classes.
  2. View your class schedule in RavenZone. Once you are registered by the Advising Team, you can log in to RavenZone and view your fall semester schedule. All students must have a Username and Password to access the RavenZone portal.
