Registration Day

December 4, 1996

9:00 am - 10:30 am Advising Appointments

11:00 am - 12:30 pm Registration for Sophomore II, Junior and Senior students only

1:30 pm - 3:00 pm Registration for all other students

Directions for Registering

(1) Prior to registration, consult with your academic adviser and other faculty members about what courses you will be taking. Take into account the college graduation requirements, when planning your courses.

(2) All faculty members will be in their offices for course consultation on the morning of registration from 9 am - 10:30 am. THE ACTUAL SIGNING OF REGISTRATION CARDS DOES NOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL 1:00 AM FOR UPPER COLLEGE STUDENTS AND 1:30 PM FOR LOWER COLLEGE STUDENTS..

(3) Prior to the start of course registration itself 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 in campus mail boxes according to the following schedule (levels are determined by credits earned):

  • 10:00-10:30 Sophomore II, Juniors and Seniors
  • 12:30 - 1:00 First-Years and Sophomore I
  • CSP students should see Karen Becker for cards

(5) Students registering for over 20 credits will be billed $652.00 per credit for every credit over 20.

(6) Collect in advance any forms you may need on registration day from the Office of the Registrar, Ludlow 201. (On registration day forms will be available only in the Henderson Computer Centre.) These forms include:

  • - Irregular Program Form (green): needed if you wish to register for more than 18 credits
    or if you intend to be a part-time student.

  • - Independent Study Proposal (blue): independent studies are not the same as tutorials since the research and writing is done almost completely 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 this form.

(7) During the registration period have the instructor of each course sign your registration card. All faculty members will be centrally located (Olin, Language Center, Hegeman), as shown on the map on pages iii and iv.

(8) After your registration card has been signed by faculty members have your adviser review and sign the card.

(9) Bring the completed registration card to the Henderson computer classroom where your registrations will be recorded and you will receive a print out of your schedule. Courses without faculty signatures will not be recorded. No registrations will be recorded without an adviser's signature.


If anything goes wrong on registration day you should talk to one of the following people:

Dean Stuart Levine, Ludlow 202, x-7421

Associate Dean Robert Martin, Ludlow 210, x-7419

Associate Dean John Pruitt, x-7340

Registrar Ellen Jetto, Henderson Computer Centre

Assistant Registrar/Coordinator Lower College Advising, Peter Gadsby - Henderson

Some Common 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 Levine, John Pruitt, Robert Martin, Peter Gadsby, or Ellen Jetto.

(3) You lose your registration card. Go to the Henderson Computer Centre.

(4) You want to change your adviser. Pick up a Change of Adviser form, 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 from is needed. The special form is used only at pre-registration in December and May. Use the designated space on the registration card; be sure to indicate the number of credits.
