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.

First- and Second-year students are encouraged to sign up for a new Gateway 100 (GTWY 100) course that explores how to link personal interests and educational experiences to future and professional goals.

Spring 2018 Pre-registration Update (October 2017)

Pre-registration for the Spring 2018 semester begins on Monday, November 6.

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 6; juniors, week of November 13; sophomores, week of November 27; first-years, week of December 4. Within each class, the letter group order for Spring preregistration is: H G A B C D E F (please note that the order when you register next Fall will be: F E H G A B C D).

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 Bentley Hall starting on the morning of Monday 6 November.

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