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)

Self-Service will re-open on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 8:00 a.m.

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 Self-Service 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.

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.
