2010-11 Spring Registration
Introduction to Course Registration
Students will have several opportunities to register for classes in advance of the Spring semester. First, third-year students who still need courses to satisfy graduation requirements will be offered an opportunity to do so, via communication with OSA. Next, all third-year students are offered a “priority” registration day. This is followed by an online registration period for all continuing students.
Priority registration for third-year students will begin at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, October 12, 2010 and end at 11:59 pm the same day.
Online registration for all continuing students will open at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, October 14, 2010 and close at 11:59 pm on Monday, January 17, 2011.
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 January 18, 2011. 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. The maximum amount of credits a student may register for is 15. Students may seek permission from Dean Filler to register for 16 credits, but this will only be granted in extraordinary circumstances.
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. The last day for waitlist placements will be Friday, January 14, 2011. Students who are added to a waitlist are not guaranteed to be registered for that course, so students should sign up for other courses to complete their course schedules. 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 to ensure that all requirements are being satisfied in preparation for graduation.
