Registration for Spring 2022

If you have questions about registering for Spring, please contact the Registrar’s Office at registrar@allegheny.edu or 814-332-2357.


There are multiple add/drop deadlines for Spring 2022!!

Due to the modular structure of Spring 2022, there are several add/drop and credit/no credit deadlines to know.

  1. All students MUST be registered for at least one course no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, January 21, 2022.  Students not registered for at least one course by that deadline will be placed on a leave for Spring 2022.
  2. The add/drop and credit/no credit deadline for Module 1 courses is 5:00 pm on Friday, January 21, 2022.
  3. The add/drop and credit/no credit deadline for full-semester courses is 5:00 pm on Tuesday, February 1, 2022. In most cases this applies to senior projects only.
  4. The add/drop and credit/no credit deadline for Module 2 and Module 2A courses is 5:00 pm on Wednesday, March 2, 2022.
  5. The add/drop and credit/no credit deadline for Module 2B courses is 5:00 pm on Monday, April 18, 2022.

Enrolled Students may add and drop courses prior to these deadlines using Self-Service. All course conflict forms must be completed by the appropriate deadline. Requests for eligible courses to be taken credit/no credit require a form to be completed here.

Students who miss the appropriate deadline will NOT be able to change their schedules.


There are two overload deadlines!!

The deadline to submit a request to take more than 4 sem hours in Spring 2022 Module 1 is noon on Wednesday, January 19, 2022. The Module 1 overload form will be turned off at that time.

The deadline to submit an overload form for Spring 2022 Module 2 courses is noon on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. The overload form will be turned off at that time.

Overload forms are available at this link.


Seniors: Check your Senior Project Registration!!

Please see here for directions on how to register for a “double” senior project. If a student is writing a combined comp, they need to make sure their registration is for “DOUBL HIST/MATH 600″ or “DOUBL CMPSC/COMM 610,” as the case may be. If a student is writing two separate comps, this does not apply; they will need to register as per the rules of their two majors.

If you are facing a situation where your major departments have different registration requirements for senior projects, PLEASE CONSULT YOUR ADVISORS BEFORE YOU REGISTER!! So, for example, one program requires a two semester comp and the other doesn’t; or one program requires a 2 credit 600 and the other a 4 credit 600. If you are uncertain, you can find that information in the Academic Bulletin for the year you first came to Allegheny.

In almost every case, the add/drop deadline for senior projects is 5:00 pm on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.


Billing and Financial Aid Reminders (repeated from October message)

Financial Aid Considerations: As the structure of Spring 2022 is unusual, there are several differences between Spring 2022 and previous semesters. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at fao@allegheny.edu or 814-332-2701 or toll free at 1-800-835-7780.

The Intent to Return Form will be provided by the Financial Aid Office to those required to complete it.

  1. Depending on their sources of aid, some students MUST be registered for 15 weeks of instruction, which would require a course in Module 1 and at least one course that spans the entire length of Module 2. These students and their advisors have all been individually notified of this requirement. 
  2. Certain sources of aid, specifically some federal and state aid, will show as “pending” and will not be disbursed until after the student starts their Module 2 classes. This is because no student will be full-time (12 credits) until that point. 
  3. Students who do not enroll in a Module 1 course or who drop or withdraw from their Module 1 course must complete an “Intent to Return” form. Failure to do so may result in their financial aid being returned. If a student completes the “Intent to Return” form and then does not return to classes for Module 2, the date they signed the form will be the date they left the institution.

Billing Considerations: To accommodate students and families on multi-payment plans, the billing deadlines for Spring 2022 will remain the same. However, pending aid (see above) will be accounted for in calculating balances. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Financial Services at finsrv@allegheny.edu or toll free at 1-800-376-7075. 


Signature Consent vs. Add Authorization in Self-Service

Top line

  1. If your course has started, then you must use “Add Authorization” to add students. This will last for the add/drop period for the period in question.
    • This ignores posted caps, pre-reqs, and other restrictions.
  2. If your course has not started, then either the student can add if the class is open and they are eligible OR you will need to use “Signature Consent” to add students.
    • This means that posted caps, pre-reqs, and class year restrictions will remain in force.

Dates for Specific Actions

Module 1

  • Signature consent – 01/04/22 – 01/17/22
  • Add Authorization – 1/18/22 – 01/21/22

Whole Semester – Sr Projects 

  • Signature consent – 01/04/22 – 01/17/22
  • Add Authorization – 1/18/22 – 02/01/22

Module 2  & Module 2A

  • Signature consent – 01/04/21 – 02/20/22
  • Add Authorization – 02/21/22 – 03/02/22

Module 2B

  • Signature consent 01/04/21 – 04/06/22
  • Add Authorization – 04/07/22 – 04/18/22

Much More Detail!

Module 1

  1. For Module 1 classes, faculty will need to use the “Add Authorization” function to add students to the course starting on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, the first day of Module 1. If “Add Authorizations” have already been granted, students will be able to register starting on Tuesday.
  2. For Module 1 that were signature-only, if a student does not enroll by Monday, January 17, 2022, faculty will need to go into Self-Service and provide “Add Authorization” even if they have already provided “Signature Consent.” i.e., signature consent will not allow a student into a Module 1 class after that point in the semester.
  3. Between Tuesday, January 18, 2022 and the end of the Module 1 add/drop on Friday, January 21, 2022, faculty may use the “Add Authorization” function to override course caps for Module 1 courses. Remember that pre-requisite and class year checking is turned off for this period and all adds are via “Add Authorization.”

Full Semester

  1. For full semester courses (senior projects), faculty will need to use the “Add Authorization” function to add students to the course starting on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, the first day of the semester. If “Add Authorizations” have already been granted, students will be able to register starting on Tuesday.
  2. For full semester courses (mostly senior projects) that were signature-only, if a student does not enroll by Monday, January 17, 2022, faculty will need to go into Self-Service and provide “Add Authorization” even if they have already provided “Signature Consent.” i.e., signature consent will not allow a student into a full semester class after that point in the semester.
  3. Between Tuesday, January 18, 2022 and and the end of the full semester add/drop on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, faculty may use the “Add Authorization” function to override course caps for full semester courses. Remember that pre-requisite and class year checking is turned off for this period and all add are via “Add Authorization.”

Module 2 and 2A Courses

  1. For Module 2 and 2A courses, until the start of Module 2 on Sunday, February 20, 2022,  faculty should continue to use “Signature Consent” to add students and students will be able to continue to add open classes for which they are eligible. “Add Authorizations” granted during this period for Module 2 courses will allow students to register starting on Monday, February 21, 2022.
  2. This means that until Monday, February 21, 2022, class caps and class year restrictions for Module 2 and 2A courses cannot be overridden.
  3. For Module 2 and 2A courses that were signature-only, if a student does not enroll by Sunday, February 20, 2022, faculty will need to go into Self-Service and provide “Add Authorization” even if they have already provided “Signature Consent.” i.e., signature consent will not allow a student into a Module 2 or 2A course after that point in the semester.
  4. Between Monday, February 21, 2022 and the end of the Module 2 and 2A add/drop on Wednesday, March 2, 2022, faculty may use the “Add Authorization” function to override course caps for Module 2 and 2A courses. Remember that pre-requisite and class year checking is turned off for this period and all add are via “Add Authorization.”

Module 2B Courses

  1. For Module 2B courses, through Wednesday, April 6, 2022, faculty should continue to use “Signature Consent” to add students and students will be able to continue to add open classes for which they are eligible. “Add Authorizations” granted during this period for Module 2B courses will allow students to register starting on Thursday, April 7, 2022.
  2. This means that until Thursday, April 7, 2022, class caps and class year restrictions for Module 2B courses cannot be overridden.
  3. For Module 2B courses that were signature-only, if a student does not enroll by Wednesday, April 6, 2022, faculty will need to go into Self-Service and provide “Add Authorization” even if they have already provided “Signature Consent.” i.e., signature consent will not allow a student into a Module 2 or 2A course after that point in the semester.
  4. Between Thursday, April 7, 2022 and and the end of the Module 2B add/drop on Monday, April 18, 2022, faculty may use the “Add Authorization” function to override course caps for 2B courses. Remember that pre-requisite and class year checking is turned off for this period and all add are via “Add Authorization.”

Transcript Freeze December 15, 2021 through January 5, 2022

Effective December 15th, transcript requests cannot be processed until fall semester grades are posted. This applies to ALL requests — from current students, pending graduates, and alumni.

If you have a deadline date before or near December 15, 2021, we recommend that you request your transcript(s) prior to December 15; otherwise it will be held until January 5, 2022. Students wishing to have fall semester grades should indicate “Hold for Current Semester Grades” when ordering. If you do not, you may need to order a second transcript. We anticipate that these transcripts will be processed and forwarded on January 5.

Seniors graduating in January 2022 should select “Hold for Current Semester Grades & Degree Posted” to make sure their degree is listed on the transcript. If you do not, you may need to order a second transcript. We anticipate that these transcripts will be processed and forwarded on January 31, 2022, after the faculty have voted to confer degrees.

Students who are facing academic suspension or dismissal will have their transcripts held until after the process concludes, on or around January 13.

Students who are not graduating seniors may continue to order transcripts as usual, but should be aware that delivery will be delayed during this period. Please plan ahead!!

Questions or concerns? Please contact the Office of the Registrar at 814-332-2357 or registrar@allegheny.edu.

All College Change Period (Add/Drop)

Registration Update–Available Classes

To students and their advisors continue to navigate through pre-registration, the Registrar’s Office has created the list linked below and will make every effort to update it through December 3.
Please note, however, four very important caveats:
1. Numbers of available seats will change, sometimes quickly!
2. Some courses on this list have prerequisites and/or class restrictions.
3. For expediency’s sake, this list is not “cleaned up” at all. Classes that have a separate lab time slot are listed twice. Courses that are team taught are listed twice. As such, the number of available courses/seats looks somewhat inflated.
4. This list is provided due to the “atypical” nature of the Spring 2022 semester and will not be standard practice.

Registration Updates (November 2021)

First-Year Registration

On Tuesday, November 23 at 4:00 p.m., Self-Service will close for registration (however, you will still be able to view your courses, transcripts, etc.).

On Monday, November 29, Self-Service will reopen for first-year students ONLY (registration class “FR”). FR students will be able to register during the week of November 29 according to the posted Registration Schedule. Other students, including Fall 2021 matriculants registering as sophomores, must wait until after the first-year students register to make any other changes to their schedules.

Please contact the Registrar’s Office (registrar@allegheny.edu, 814-332-2357) if you have questions about first-year registration for Spring.


All-College Change Period (Add/Drop)

On Monday, December 6, Self-Service will be temporarily closed while we make final adjustments to the Spring schedule. You will still be able to log on to see your schedule.

Self-Service will re-open on Tuesday, December 7.

Students may register for up to 20 credits at that time. Starting in January, students will be able to register for an “overload” (21 credits or more). The semester overload form will be available at the beginning of the Spring 2022 semester in January.

If you are unable to register and you know that your advisor has approved you, you may have some sort of billing hold. You can review your balance through the TMS Student Account Center link on your WebAdvisor or by calling Financial Services at 332-2360.

You can continue to add unrestricted courses that have open seats online, and you can also drop any course online.

Please contact the Registrar’s Office (registrar@allegheny.edu, 814-332-2357) if you have questions about registering for Spring.


Overloads for Spring 2022

Due to the unique circumstances of Spring 2022, there will be TWO overload processes.

  1. Students who wish to take more than four credits in Module 1 will be able to apply for an overload in that Module beginning on Monday, December 6. Attempting to take eight credits during Spring 2022 Module 1 means committing to a very high workload. It means six hours of class time per day, five days a week, plus time for homework and assignments. That would mean you are committing to a roughly 90 hour academic work week for Module 1. Therefore, Module 1 overload requests will be held to a high standard and not routinely granted.
  2. Students who wish to take more than twenty credits for Spring 2022 as a whole will be able to apply for an overload beginning on Monday, January 17. If a Module 1 course is what will put a student over 20 credits they should use the Module 1 overload form as above, but if approved, the course will not be added until January 17. 

Please contact the Registrar’s Office (registrar@allegheny.edu, 814-332-2357) if you have questions about overloads for Spring.

Module B “X” Deadline
