1. Fall Course Schedule

Scheduling/OARS -- The men's golf team has an OARS program for course registration. To meet the team's practice schedule, incoming players trying out must schedule your classes using the following guidelines:

• Schedule your classes M-T-W-T-F-S. Classes fill very fast so you need to do this ASAP.

All students trying out for the team must be registered as a full-time FAU student (12 or more credit hours).  Students should follow all university instructions to enroll.  If you are a freshmen or transfer student with less than 30 credits, you should work with the University Advising Services (UAS) office for advisement and registration assistance.  If you are a transfer student with 30 or more credits, you should work with your college advising office for assistance.  If you are already a current FAU student, you should continue to work with your existing advisor in UAS or your specific college. 

Please keep in mind that you should not schedule classes between 1pm-7pm due to the golf practice schedule.  Classes fill up quickly, so please register ASAP!
