Register for Classes Carefully

Selecting courses well is critical for ADHD students. Be sure to take advantage of early registration if offered by the Disabilities Office. Review the syllabus of each course and evaluate whether the reading and writing assignments are possible, given the rest of your course load. Make use of the drop/add periods by dropping a class that's not working for you. Register for more classes than you intend to take so you can drop without rearranging your schedule.
