Transcript Freeze: Effective 5/5

Posted on April 30, 2015 | Filed under General News

Effective May 5, transcript requests for current students cannot be processed until spring semester grades are posted. If you have a deadline date before or near May 5, 2015, we recommend that you request your transcript(s) before May 5 so that they can be processed before the transcript freeze. Students wishing to have spring semester grades should indicate “AFTER GRADES ARE POSTED” when ordering through the WebAdvisor Transcript on Demand service; otherwise, they will be processed “now” and you will be charged. We anticipate that these transcripts will be processed and forwarded on May 18, 2015. SENIORS: Final transcripts for seniors with degree and major posted will also be available May 18, but you must indicate “AFTER DEGREE IS CONFERRED” when ordering through the WebAdvisor Transcript on Demand service. Questions or concerns? Please contact Pam McCurdy, Transcript Coordinator, at 332-2357 or pmccurdy@allegheny.edu.

Fall Schedule Adjustments

Posted on April 26, 2015 | Filed under General News

WebAdvisor is closed on Monday, April 27, to make some final schedule adjustments. On Tuesday, April 28, preregistration will re-open for all students. Unrestricted courses may be added via WebAdvisor at that time if seats are available. However, you must use an Add card (available April 28 in the Registrar’s Office) if: 1. The course is full. Contact the instructor to see if it is possible to add additional students. 2. The course has a “signature” restriction (indicated by “Yes” in the Sign Req column under Search for sections in WebAdvisor). Please note that many instructors will have added signature restrictions to previously unrestricted courses so that they can give preference to students on their waiting lists; if WebAdvisor is not allowing you to register for a course, check whether it now has a signature restriction. 3. The course is restricted to a particular registration class or classes (e.g. FR/SO). Contact the instructor to see if it might be possible to add a course even if you are not a member of the indicated class. If the faculty member agrees, his/her signature on an Add card will permit you to register for the course. Add cards must be turned into the Registrar’s Office by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5. WebAdvisor will remain open through the end of June, and you may continue to Add unrestricted courses or Drop any course online throughout that period. However, preregistration remains limited to a maximum of 18 credits. Additional courses may be added in the Fall, after the incoming first-year students have registered.
