Students can use the Schedule Builder tool to visualize their class schedules as they look for courses in the Student Administration System in preparation for registration. It allows them to try to build an ideal schedule for them based on campus, term, subject, times of day, and desired breaks. For example, if a student has a job three days a week from 7:30am-10:30am, they can request classes those days that begin at 12pm or later. 

Once the student builds an optimal schedule, they can import it into their Shopping Cart in the Student Administration System. When their enrollment appointment (also known as a pick time) arrives, they can simply click Enroll from their Shopping Cart to try to register for all the selected classes at the same time.
