JSP Spring Registration Information

Class of 2023

Please follow the steps listed below, as it may make registration much easier for you all.  If you’ve already taken this action, please do not worry about doing it again.

What you’ll need to do is apply for the certificate here choose the CTI Certificate from the drop-down menu.  Fill out the application, and you should then receive a Secure Academic Note (SAN), which is an email that requires you to log in with your EID and password to read, asking you to contact your Advisor about finishing the process.

After you have completed this step, contact Nathan Vickers our advisor, and he’ll be able to finish the process for you.

Why are we doing this?  Some of the classes for Spring 2020 will require that you’ve done this step to have access to them, so it’s important to do it so that registration is an easier process for you.

If you have not yet taken a signature course (UGS 302 or 303 or TC 302), we have a few spots reserved in one for you in the Spring.  To register, you will need to email Kaytlen Powers at with your EID and the unique number to reserve a spot in this class.

UGS 302 Discovery of Freedom

As in the fall, we recommend taking two Jefferson Scholars courses if you have room, but if you can only take one at a time, that’s fine.


Seats in CTI 302, GOV 312P, and CTI 304 are primarily for freshmen, but each section of each class has some limited space for Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors.  You should be able to register for any of the sections, assuming you have applied for and been approved for the CTI Certificate.
