Spring 2019 Pre-registration Update (October 2018)

Pre-registration for the Spring 2019 semester begins on Monday, November 5.

Access is by registration class and letter code according to the posted registration schedule. Please check your profile in WebAdvisor to confirm your correct class and letter! The date and time in the schedule are the earliest that you may register.

Please make sure to consult with your academic advisor(s) before your scheduled registration time and receive permission to register – you will not be permitted to register for any classes without your advisor’s approval (double majors and students with co-advisors: both advisors must approve you to register). You should take a Degree Audit with you when you go to meet with your advisor(s).

The general registration order is: seniors, week of November 5; juniors, week of November 12; sophomores, week of November 26, and first-years, week of December 3. Within each class, the letter group order for Spring preregistration is: D C F E H G A B (please note that the order when you register for next Fall will be: B A D C F E H G).

Registration class is determined solely by credits earned and NOT by the number of semesters you have attended Allegheny. A student is considered to be a first-year student from the date of matriculation until the semester following completion of the 28th semester hour, when the student becomes a sophomore. A student becomes a junior in the semester following completion of the 60th semester hour, and a senior in the semester following completion of the 92nd semester hour.

Preregistration is limited to a maximum of 18 credits. You may add additional credits once the Spring semester begins. If you need a signature card, those will be available in Murray Hall starting on the morning of Monday 5 November.

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

This fall, junior and senior students are invited to sign up for a Gateway 300 (GTWY 300) course that provides space to do the work of linking the curriculum and the co-curriculum into a personal narrative that will help move the student in the direction of a career. Students work to articulate a clear professional goal and develop a process by which they might achieve it. This course is designed for students recently returned from an internship or study-abroad opportunity or who have completed a long-term service commitment and is meant to help them integrate these experiences into their curricular plans.

This one-credit Module B course meets once a week starting the week of October 15. Students do not need to have taken GTWY 100 in order to take GTWY 300. Both GTWY 100 and 300 may be repeated for credit.
