Spring 2020 Pre-registration Update (October 2019)

Pre-registration for the Spring 2019 semester begins on Monday, November 4.

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 4; juniors, week of November 11; sophomores, week of November 18; first-year, week of December 2. Within each class, the letter group order for Spring preregistration is: G H B A D C F E (please note that the order when you register for next Fall will be: E F G H B A D C).

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 4 November.

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

Fall 2019 Update (October 2019)

‘X’ Deadline: The last day to opt for a student-initiated withdrawal from a course (“X“) is Friday 1 November.

Forms for withdrawals are available in the Registrar’s Office and require the signatures of the instructor and your academic advisor. The completed forms must be turned in to the Registrar’s Office by 5 p.m. on Friday 1 November. Please keep in mind that only one student-initiated withdrawal per student is permitted per semester. If you wish to take a leave of absence from the College (i.e., to withdraw from all classes this semester), please contact the Dean of Students Office.

If taking a student-initiated withdrawal will leave you with fewer than 12 credits for the semester, you are strongly encouraged to consult with Financial Aid and Financial Services before you submit the card.

Graduates of January and May 2012: Check the tentative graduation list.

The Registrar’s Office in Murray Hall will publish and post a tentative January and May graduation list from Monday 14 October through Friday 29 November. All seniors are responsible for making sure their names are on the tentative list. You may stop in to Murray Hall from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekdays to confirm that your name is listed.

Please be aware that if your privacy category is set to “Release No Information” or “Release No Directory Information,” we are not able to post your name in public. Please stop in to Murray 128 to discuss what that means for Commencement. You may view your Privacy category under “My Profile” in WebAdvisor. Please see here for a description of the possible privacy categories.

Please contact the Registrar’s Office (registrar@allegheny.edu814-332-2357) if you have questions about any of these items.

 

Fall Registration Update (early September 2019)

Add/Drop/CR-NC Deadline is Monday 9 September at 4:00 pm

Monday, September 9 at 4:00 p.m. is the deadline to add a class, drop a class, or declare a course Credit/No Credit for the Fall semester. Add cards and Credit/No Credit cards must be turned in to the Registrar’s Office by 4:00 p.m. on 9/9. Drops must be completed on-line via WebAdvisor by 4:00 p.m. on 9/9.

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.

Overload deadline is Friday 6 September at noon

The deadline to submit an overload form for Fall 2019 is noon on Monday 9 September. The form will be turned off at that time.

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.

Fall 2019 Registration Updates (April 2019)

Pre-registration for Fall 2019 continues!!

On Monday, April 29, WebAdvisor will be temporarily closed while we make final adjustments to the Fall schedule. All continuing students without holds will have had the opportunity to register by this time.

WebAdvisor will re-open on Tuesday, April 30. Add cards will also be available on April 30. 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).

Please note that an Add card does not override a general registration hold (e.g., no advisor approval or a financial hold).

After April 30, students may continue to add unrestricted courses that have open seats online, and also drop any course online. WebAdvisor will remain open for these course adjustments until June 28.

Students may register for up to 18 credits at this time. Continuing students wishing to register for 19 or more credits may do so after First-Year Course Registration ends in early August. At that point students may register for up to 20 credits with no special permission. Once the Fall semester starts in August, students may register for up to 21 credits with the permission of their advisor, and 22 credits and above with the permission of their advisor and the registrar. Overload forms will be available at the beginning of the Fall 2019 semester in August. Credit/No Credit cards will be available at the same time.

Please contact the Registrar’s Office at registrar@allegheny.edu if you encounter any problems registering for Fall classes.

Transcript Freeze — May 7 through May 15

Effective May 7, transcript requests cannot be processed until spring 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 May 8, 2019, we recommend that you request your transcript(s) prior to May 8; otherwise it will be held until May 15, 2019. Students wishing to have spring 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 May 15.

Seniors graduating in May 2019 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 May 15.

Students who are facing academic suspension or dismissal will have their transcripts held until after the process concludes, on or around May 23.

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.
