Seniors: Tell Us If You Plan to “Walk” in Commencement 2018

Seniors: Tell Us If You Plan to “Walk” in Commencement 2018

If you have recently graduated and not participated in a Commencement ceremony, or if your anticipated graduation date is May 2018, September 2018, or January 2019, then you are eligible to walk in the 2018 Commencement ceremony, which will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2018. Please see the Commencement website for details of the ceremony.

If you are eligible to walk, you should have received an email from the Registrar with a link to a form that you need to complete. If you did not receive that message (please check Spam and Trash first), and you think you are eligible to walk, please contact Remember, you need to either be a recent graduate who has not walked, or else an anticipated graduate in May 2018, September 2018, or January 2019.

If you have not yet responded, you will receive another reminder e-mail before the deadline, which is Friday, March 23, 2018. If you do not respond, we will assume you are not attending Commencement.

Spring Registration Update (late January 2018)

Add/Drop/CR-NC Deadline is Monday 29 January at 4:00 pm

Monday, January 29 at 4:00 p.m. is the deadline to add a class, drop a class, or declare a course Credit/No Credit for the Spring semester. Add cards and Credit/No Credit cards must be turned in to the Registrar’s Office by 4:00 p.m. on 1/29. Drops must be completed on-line via WebAdvisor by 4:00 p.m. on 1/29.

Adding a class requires the instructor’s signature, and declaring a class Credit/No Credit requires the advisor’s signature. Students are reminded that faculty schedules vary, so any needed signatures should be obtained as soon as possible. Students who miss the deadline will NOT be able to change their schedules.

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.

Seniors: will you graduate?

Have you checked your Degree Audit? Do you see this under the “Program Summary” section?

Program Summary: (Pending (Anticipated Complete))

If you do not see this on your Degree Audit, please consult with your academic advisor BEFORE THE SPRING ADD DEADLINE, which is Monday, January 29 at 4:00 pm.

Transcript Service Restored

As of this afternoon, Wednesday 13 December, we have restored transcript ordering service. We appreciate your patience and we apologize for the delay in restoring service. Please see here for details.

Transcripts Unavailable through Tuesday 12 December

Allegheny College’s transcript ordering service will be unavailable between Friday 8 December and Tuesday 12 December.

This is so that we can switch service providers. Transcript service will reopen on Tuesday 12 December using TranscriptsPlus from Credentials Solutions. All students with current transcript requests will either have the request processed as requested or else will be contacted about how to re-order.

Once the new service is available, you will be able to access it either via the “Order Transcript” link in your WebAdvisor account or via this link (

For all questions or concerns about transcript orders, please email the Office of the Registrar (, or call 814-332-2357.

Update: 12.12.2017

Unfortunately, we were not able to restore transcript service on Tuesday 12 December. We apologize for the inconvenience. We expect that service will resume on Wednesday 13 December.

Are you going to graduate in May 2018??

Seniors should ensure they are registered for the courses they need to graduate!!

Please review your Degree Audit, consult with your academic advisor(s), or contact the Office of the Registrar (, 814-332-2357). You have until 4:00 pm on Monday 29 January 2018 to adjust your schedule.

All-College Change Period (Add/Drop) (December 2017)

On Monday 11 December, WebAdvisor 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.

WebAdvisor will re-open on Tuesday 12 December.

Add cards will also be available on 12 December. Please use Add cards to register (if the instructor grants permission) for:

  • courses that are full
  • courses that have restrictions you do not meet (e.g., FR/SO only)
  • courses that require the instructor’s signature (in “Search for Sections” in WebAdvisor, these courses are designated “Yes” in the “Sign Req” column).

Students may register for up to 20 credits at this time. Starting in January, students will be able to register for an “overload” (21 credits or more). Overload forms will be available at the beginning of the Spring 2018 semester in January. Credit/No Credit cards will be available at the same time.

Please note that an Add card does not override a general registration hold (e.g., no advisor approval or a financial hold). 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 (, 814-332-2357) if you have questions about registering for Spring.
