Spring 2023 Registration is Approaching Student Email
October 13, 2022

Spring 2023 Registration for rising seniors will begin on Monday, November 7, 2022. Each currently enrolled student received the email below on Thursday, October 13, 2022.

Spring 2023 classes will be available for you to view on Self-Service beginning Monday October 17th. Please see here for additional information about special topics courses, FS 102 and 201 course descriptions, etc.

All students must be registered for at least one class by Monday, January 30 (the add/drop deadline for 14-week and 7-week Module A courses) or they will be placed on leave. Enrolled students may change their schedule after this date, based on the various add/drop deadlines for the semester.

  1. Pre-registration for the Spring 2023 semester begins on Monday, November 7. Please use the Academic Bulletin and Self-Service to plan your schedule. The Bulletin lists ALL courses, so please use Self-Service to see which classes are actually being offered in a given semester. There are detailed instructions for how to search for add and drop classes via Self-Service here.

  1. You will register as a in letter group . Please check the registration schedule to see at what time you are eligible to register. Please check your profile in Self Service to confirm your correct class and letter! The date and time in the schedule are the earliest that you may register.

  1. Make sure to consult with your academic advisor(s) before your scheduled registration time to receive permission to register. You will not be permitted to register for any classes without your advisor’s approval (double majors: both advisors must approve you to register).

  1. If you have previously been informed that you must declare a major and minor this semester, you must also have submitted your declaration form to be able to register.

  1. Preregistration is limited to a maximum of 18 credits. You will be able to register for up to 20 credits starting on Tuesday, December 13 and for over 20 credits (an “overload”) starting on Tuesday, January 17.

  1. If you are unable to register, there may be some sort of hold on your account. Please consult this page for suggestions.

  1. Once per semester, students need to confirm their address, personal email, etc. Please see here for how to do that.

  1. If you wish to declare a class “Credit/No Credit” you may do so starting in January. Please consult your advisor as CR/NC courses cannot be used to fulfill some College and departmental requirements. In particular, CR/NC may NOT be used to fulfill the distribution requirements.

  1. Seniors, if you need to register for a double senior project, please follow these directions.

Registration Class: Please note that Registration Class is determined by the number of credits you will have earned by the end of the semester, not when you entered Allegheny; for example, you may think of yourself as a “sophomore” because this is your second year but be eligible to register as a junior. 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.

If you have questions about registering for Spring, please contact the Registrar’s Office at registrar@allegheny.edu or 814-332-2357.
