The first step to enrolling in a TLC is to find the TLC that’s right for you! Check out our TLC options for Fall 2013, and pick a theme that suits you.
Once you've determined which TLC you are interested in, you have the option to Pre-Enroll in a TLC or to follow the Traditional Enrollment Process:
Great News! We are excited to offer Pre-Enrollment for Fall 2013 Themed Learning Communities (TLCs). Pre-enrollment is a way for you to select a TLC that you are interested in and secure your spot in the TLC courses before coming to orientation (provided space is available). Know part of your schedule in April!
In order to pre-enroll in a TLC, complete the TLC Pre-Enrollment Form and return the form to the Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning, 110 Evans Fieldhouse, DeKalb IL 60115; firstname.lastname@example.org; fax: (815) 753-8157.
Once pre-enrolled, be sure to sign up for an orientation session on or before July 11, 2013, asstudents that take advantage of the pre-enrollment process must attend an orientation AND advising session on or before July 11, 2013 or OSEEL will drop the student from their TLC courses.
Once pre-enrolled, students can still rearrange their schedule during their advising session, including selecting a different TLC or dropping from the TLC. In addition, students that have not enrolled in a TLC can enroll in one during summer orientation advising sessions via the Traditional Enrollment Process described below.
To follow the traditional enrollment process, you will need to discuss your TLC interests with your advisor in your advising session during summer orientation. To help facilitate this process, follow these steps:
1) Put the TLC classes into your Shopping Cart on MyNIU! When organizing your schedule for Fall 2013, make sure to select all the classes that are in the TLC you wish to enroll in. (See directions below).
2) Talk to your advisor at orientation! Make sure to speak with an advisor at orientation about TLCs, and he/she will assist you to plan for the TLC that’s right for you. This is the most important step!
3) Enroll in a TLC! After seeing your advisor at orientation during the summer, log back into MyNIU. Find your Shopping Cart, check the boxes next to your TLC classes, and click Enroll!
