"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 can 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.
REMEMBER: Participation in the OARS process DOES NOT exempt you from attending the university's MANDATORY Orientation program.
Once you complete Step 1 and receive course approval (though OARS) you can go to Step 2 which is Course Registration via MyFAU.
