1:30 pm – 2:30 pm Registration for new students and students returning from a leave.

Prior to registration, consult with your academic adviser and other faculty members about the courses you plan to select. 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 prerequisite. 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 prerequisite. However, in some programs there are strict prerequisites, 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; Upper College Seminars for moderated students meet once per week.
1. 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 NEW AND TRANSFER STUDENTS, AND STUDENTS RETURNING FROM A LEAVE, AND AT 2:30 PM FOR ALL OTHER STUDENTS.
2. 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.
Ř Registration cards will be available in the Office of the Registrar.
3. You must be financially clear in order to receive your registration card. If you are not clear please go to the Office of Student Accounts.
4. Students registering for more than 20 credits will be billed an additional fee for every credit over 20.
5. 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 have a B average or above and 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 because the research and writing is done almost entirely on your own. Executive Committee approval and a faculty sponsor are required.
· Change of Adviser Form: it is not sufficient to ask your new adviser to sign the registration card. You must complete the change of adviser form.
6. During the registration period the instructor of each course must sign your registration card.
7. After your registration card has been signed by faculty members have your adviser review and sign the card.
8. Bring the completed registration card to the Registrar’s Office 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 Michele Dominy, Celia Bland, David Shein, or Peter Gadsby
(3) You lose your registration card. Go to the Registra’s Office
(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.
