OARS: STEP 1 - ONLINE COURSE ADVISING
Everything you need to navigate the online advising process is located within the next two pages. While you might be tempted to jump right in and begin selecting your courses, you are strongly encouraged to read and follow all instructions before you begin any part of the advising process.
"OARS" is a self-directed system. You may be a little nervous about choosing classes on your own, but DON'T WORRY! Help is always just a phone call or mouse click away, and the instructions are very user-friendly. When you log in to select your courses, you will find:
- A brief description of the course when you click on the subject.
- A sample class schedule for your major.
It takes three (3) to five (5) business days to process your submitted OARS form. After three to five business days, log back into OARS to review your advisor's comments. If your holds are cleared and your course selections are in sync with your advisors, you may now log into MyFAU to register for classes. That's all there is to it!
- If you have questions along the way, there are tutorials in PDF and Video formats available to you, or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (561) 297-3064.
Participation in the OARS process DOES NOT exempt you from attending the university's MANDATORY Orientation program.
Nope. You can and should complete OARS before you attend Orientation.
If you are an incoming freshman, you must first complete OARS, your online advising (click here). Once your OARS form is approved, your freshman advising hold (the UN hold) will be removed and you will be eligible to register (once all your other holds are removed as well). You will register for classes by logging into MyFAU (https://myfau.fau.edu).
A Registration Video Tutorial is available on the University Advising Services homepage. http://www.fau.edu/uas/registration.php
