DIRECTIONS FOR REGISTERING
1. Prior to registration, consult with your academic adviser and other faculty members about the courses you will be taking. Take into account the college graduation requirements when planning your courses.
UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED, COURSES CARRY FOUR CREDITS.
COURSE LEVEL DESIGNATIONS:
100 level courses
Most 100 level courses are open to all students without pre-requisite. However, some of these courses do require some background in the subject or, in the case of introductory photography, writing, and studio art courses, the submission of a portfolio. Check individual course descriptions for details.
200 level courses
Many 200 level courses are also open to all students without pre-requisite. However, in some programs there are strict pre-requisites, and the courses are only open to students with Sophomore standing or higher. Check individual course descriptions for details.
300 and 400 level courses
Most 300 and 400 level courses have stated pre-requisites, and are open only to students who have a background in the subject. The classes are limited to an enrollment of 15 students, and Upper College Seminars meet once per week.
2. All faculty members will be in their offices for advising appointments and course consultation on the morning of registration from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.
THE ACTUAL SIGNING OF REGISTRATION CARDS BEGINS AT 1:30 PM FOR FIRST-YEAR, TRANSFER AND STUDENTS RETURNING FROM A LEAVE OF ABSENCE, AND AT 2:30 PM FOR ALL OTHER STUDENTS.
3. Prior to the start of course registration it is a good idea to have a list of courses you wish to take, as well as a list of alternatives in case you are not able to get into your first choices.
4. Registration cards will be distributed according to the following schedule:
· First year and Transfer students: cards will be in campus mailboxes on Saturday, August 30th.
· Students returning from a leave of absence should pick up cards in the Registrar’s Office.
· CSP students should see Karen Becker.
5. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE YOUR REGISTRATION CARD DUE TO A FINANCIAL HOLD, PLEASE GO TO THE OFFICE OF STUDENT ACCOUNTS.
6. Students registering for more than 20 credits will be billed for every credit over 20.
7. Prior to registration day, collect any forms you may need from the Office of the Registrar, Ludlow 201. On Registration Day the forms will be available in Henderson Computer Center. These forms include:
· Irregular Program Form: needed if you wish to register for more than 18 credits or if you intend to be a part-time student.
· Independent Study Proposal: independent studies are not the same as tutorials since the research and writing is done almost entirely on your own. They require Executive Committee approval and a faculty sponsor.
· Change of Adviser Form: it is not enough simply to ask your new adviser to sign the registration card. You must also complete the change of adviser form.
8. During the registration period the instructor of each course must sign your registration card.
9. After your registration card has been signed by faculty members have your adviser review and sign the card.
10. Bring the completed registration card to the Henderson Computer Center where your registration will be recorded and you will receive a printout of your schedule. Courses without faculty signatures will not be recorded. No registrations will be recorded without an adviser's signature.
POSSIBLE REGISTRATION PROBLEMS
(1) You are unable to sign up for a full load of courses (16 credits) on registration day. Turn in your registration card with whatever you have signed up for by the end of registration day. You can always add more courses later using an add/drop form, and at least you will be registered.
(2) You cannot find your adviser on registration day. Talk to Dean Dominy, Associate Dean Julia Rosenbaum, Peter Gadsby, or Diane Smith.
(3) You lose your registration card. Go to the Henderson Computer Center.
(4) You want to change your adviser. Pick up a Change of Adviser form from the Registrar, have your new adviser sign the form, and return it to the Office of the Registrar.
(5) You want to register for a tutorial. No special form is needed. Use the designated space on the registration card; be sure to indicate the level and number of credits.
