SOUTHERN MISS GULF COAST STUDENTS
NOW HAVE MORE CONVENIENT REGISTRATION

LONG BEACH - Continuing and new students attending The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast now have a more convenient registration process. The new procedure allows students to register for spring classes from now until Jan. 10 by making an appointment with their student services coordinator by e-mail correspondence or by telephone.

"This new concept provides a customer-friendly environment," said Richard Farley, director of customer service. "Students can register for the upcoming semester any time after the class schedule is available online."

Previously, students could register only when SOAR (Southern's Online Accessible Records) was available. The window was only open for two to three weeks, but with continuous registration, that limitation no longer exists.

Current students are encouraged to make an appointment with their student services coordinator. Advisement and registration can both be accomplished in one sitting.

Once admitted, new students will be contacted by a student services coordinator to make an appointment for registration. Twelve student services coordinators are available for students registering for classes on the Gulf Coast.

Application for admission to the university can be made online by visiting www.usm.edu/gulfcoast. Official transcripts will be required, but student copies can be used for the advisement and registration process.

For more information on spring semester advisement and registration, visit the Gulf Coast Web site, call (228) 865-4500 or come in person to the Administration Building, Room 100 on the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.
