Advising Day – Wednesday, November 18th.  Meet with your adviser to review program and degree requirements and course selection for spring 2010. Appointment times are to be arranged with advisers.



On-line Registration:                           December 3rd - December 11th.

Open Registration:                               December 3rd - December 18th

First Year Seminar Registration:        December 14 – 18th.



A “regular” course load is 16 credits (four 4-credit courses, or the equivalent) per semester. First-year and transfer students may register for no more than 18 credits.  Returning students with a B average or better may petition to enroll in more than 18 credits. There is an additional charge for every credit over 20. Contact Students Accounts concerning charges for auditing classes.




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.


v      Prior to the start of course registration 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.


v       You must be financially clear in order register.  If you are not clear please go to the Office of Student Accounts.


v      Students will be billed for every credit over 20. The equivalent of 4 credits may be audited at no charge, audits in excess of 4 credits will be billed. See Students Accounts for specifics.


v      Prior to registration, collect any forms you may need from the Office of the Registrar, Ludlow 201. 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 differ from 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:  Obtain the signature of the new adviser on the change of adviser form.


v      Courses not open for on-line registration require approval from the faculty member. The faculty will provide a list of accepted students to the Registrar.   


v      Advisers will receive a list of their advisees’ courses for approval. If approved the adviser will sign and return the form to the Registrar.
