Registration Updates (November 2020)

First-Year Registration

At noon on Tuesday, November 24, Self-Service will close for registration (however, you will still be able to view your courses, transcripts, etc.).

On Monday, November 30, WebAdvisor will reopen for first-year students ONLY (registration class “FR”). FR students will be able to register during the week of November 30 according to the posted Registration Schedule. Other students, including Fall 2020 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 7 December, 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 8 December.

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 2021 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 2021

Due to the unique circumstances of Spring 2021, 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 7 December. Attempting to take eight credits during Spring 2021 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 2021 as a whole will be able to apply for an overload beginning on Monday 18 January. 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 18 January. 

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