2009-10 Spring Registration
Introduction to Course Registration
Due to the success of our continuous registration process last quarter, we are moving forward with this model. Before continuous registration opens, there is one day of priority registration for third-year students.
Priority registration for third-year students at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 26, 2010 and end at 11:59 pm the same day.
Online registration for all upper-level students will open at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 28, 2010 and end at 11:59 pm on Friday, March 5, 2010.
During the online registration period, all upper-level students, irrespective of class year, can drop or add courses as long as space is available.
Students must obtain permission from Dean Oates to make schedule changes after the open Add/Drop period has ended, beginning March 6, 2010. Permission will only be granted with good cause. Students permitted to drop a course after the second week of classes will receive a grade of “W” (withdrawal). Students who fall below 9 total credits are not considered full-time students in residence and may no longer be eligible for scholarships or financial aid.
If a course is full, students can put themselves on a waitlist for that particular course by selecting the waitlist option in Banner. The process is described in the Registration Instructions, linked below. If a seat in the course becomes available, the first student on the waitlist will be notified via automated email from the University Registrar that he or she is eligible to be enrolled in the course, and will have 24 hours to self-register. These notifications will be sent only to your Drexel email account. As the School of Law does not oversee this process, exceptions cannot be made to it.
If you encounter any problems with waitlist registration, please contact Theresa Gallo - do not reply to the automated email. Please do not attempt to register yourself for open seats without notification as you will lose your place on the waitlist. The last day for waitlist placements will be Friday, March 5, 2010. Students who are added to a waitlist are not guaranteed to be registered for that course. We cannot make any assurances that you will be removed from a waitlist, so you should sign up for other courses to complete your course schedule. Waitlist eligibility does not override other registration restrictions.
In advance of registration, students are invited to attend (or view online) any general advising presentations offered, as well as consult with their faculty advisor. Additionally, 3rd year students may want to schedule an appointment with OSA and complete a Program Progress Review (http://www.drexel.edu/law/PDFs/osa-PPR-Instructions.pdf) to ensure that all requirements are being satisfied in preparation for graduation.
