    Rising 9th Graders - Online Registration Instructions

    COMPLETE THE PAPER COURSE REQUEST WORKSHEET, FIRST.

    Online Registration is open Monday April 8th 9AM through Thursday April 25th 11:59 p.m.

    IF YOU DON’T REGISTER ONLINE, THE COMPUTER WILL CHOOSE YOUR COURSES.

    • Online registration works only for students who are enrolled with Seattle Public Schools for 2018-19.
    • Use the copy of your paper Course Request Worksheet (instructions on the other side).
    • Know your Source login. For Source login assistance see your Librarian.

    1. Login to THE SOURCE https://ps.seattleschools.org/public/ using your student account (not the parent account).

    2. Click on “CLASS REGISTRATION” in the left column, to view the course categories.

    3. Click on the “PENCIL” icon to view the individual course options. Scroll to the bottom of each section; there may be more than one page available. Courses are listed alphabetically, with Seattle School District course descriptions. For Garfield-specific course descriptions and prerequisites see the online Garfield Registration Guide & Course Descriptions.

    4. Next to the “PENCIL” icon you will see a GREEN CHECK MARK or RED EXCLAMATION POINT. Red Exclamation Point means this is a required course or you made an entry error (e.g. too many or too few courses selected).

    5. To SELECT A COURSE, CLICK ANYWHERE on the row – the row will turn blue. CLICK “OKAY” at the bottom right of the page. To UNSELECT A COURSE, click anywhere on the blue row and update your choice. ALWAYS CLICK “OKAY” at the bottom right of the page. Confirm the online course title and course code with your completed Course Request Worksheet to be sure you have the matching semester 1 and semester 2 for year-long courses (e.g. Choose Algebra 1A and Algebra 1B. Do not choose Algebra 2A and Algebra 2AH.)

    • All 9th graders are automatically enrolled in Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. HCC 9th grade science will be changed to PhysicsB/ChemB.
    • All 9th graders are required to choose 2 semesters of Math. Most choose Algebra 1A HMA2684 & 1B HMA2686.
    • Choose 4 semesters of Electives. Note that some courses (e.g. Orchestra) are year-long.
    • Alternate Electives – you may choose up to 2 semesters from the “Alternate Electives” course category.
    • Courses Allowing Repeat Requests – this category allows you to choose listed courses more than once a year. (e.g. To request a full year/semester 1 and semester 2 of Band, choose Concert Band HFA8232 under BOTH Fine Arts and Courses Allowing Repeat Requests.)
    • Additional Requests – ignore this category.

    6. Once you have selected all your course requests and each section has a GREEN CHECK MARK, CLICK SUBMIT on the bottom right of the page. Clicking SUBMIT is not final; it saves your entries and you can still make changes through 4/25. To edit your requests after you have submitted, click on “CLASS REGISTRATION” again (See Step 2) and follow the same instructions. ALWAYS CLICK SUBMIT on the bottom right of the page to save your entries. You may access and edit online registration any time from Monday April 8th 9 a.m. through Thursday April 25th 11:59 p.m.

    7. Once you hit SUBMIT, you will see either a list of your successful course requests OR a Submission Failed Error Message. Reasons for Error Message include:

    • Did not choose a required course (Red Exclamation Point)
    • Chose too many in one category (e.g. 3 semesters of Math classes)
    • Your grade level has a minimum/maximum credit requirement, and you chose too few or too many classes.

    8. Save a copy of your online course requests for your records.

    Online Registration is open April 8th 9AM to Thursday, April 25th 11:59PM.

    YOUR ONLINE COURSE REQUEST DATA WILL BE USED TO CREATE YOUR SCHEDULE. IF YOU DON’T REGISTER ONLINE, THE COMPUTER WILL CHOOSE YOUR COURSES.
