Registration begins for Spring 2018

Your registration date is determined by the current amount of credits you have completed as of November 2017. Please view the dates chart below.
How to Register:
Step 1: Academic Advising
Advising for Students is October 30 to November 10.
Schedule an appointment with your adviser early. Advising sessions generally take a half hour, sometimes longer. Use the Academic Catalog to note required courses, and the fall class schedule to start your planning process. The schedule will be posted on the web October 27.
Bring to the advising session a completed course change form (PDF) as a first draft of the courses you want/need to take. Many advisors require that advisees take this first step before starting an advising session. After the advising session (which must be in-person, not via email, unless you are away from Goucher this semester) your adviser will authorize you for online registration. If you need to add courses requiring signatures other than your advisers, a course change form should be signed by your adviser during the advising session. View the Course Change Form.
Select alternate courses during your advising session, in case your first choices are full.
Prerequisites: You may only register for courses for which you have met the required prerequisites unless the instructor has signed a course change form to waive them.
Intensive Courses Abroad (ICA) require acceptance into the program to register. ICA registration will be done by the Registrar's Office in SAS. Make sure you calculate the ICA credits into the total you are allowed when registering online.
In addition to your adviser, instructors' signatures are required for audits, closed courses, time overlaps and any course in which you are required to have the permission of the instructor to enroll. Adviser, instructor and department chair signatures are required for independent work. Registration for any of the above course types must be done in-person in the Registrar's Office (Mon-Fri, 8:45 a.m.-5 p.m.) after your assigned day and time for registration. A completed course change form must be submitted. Printed, attached emails will be accepted as signatures.
When registering on-line, pass/no pass can only be selected for courses required to be graded as such (PE activity etc.). Changing from a regular grade to pass/no pass can be done by completing a course change form and bringing it to SAS after your assigned registration time. See pass/no pass in the catalog at: http://catalog.goucher.edu/
Registration for internships requires the Internship Learning Agreement (ILA) be submitted to the Career Development Office for approval. (Be sure to check deadlines.) After approval by the CDO, the ILA is submitted to the Registrar's Office for entry.
Registration for senior thesis requires the Senior Thesis Guidelines and Form be submitted to the Associate Provost's office for approval. (Be sure to check deadlines.) After approval by the Associate Provost's office, the Senior Thesis Registration Form is submitted to the Registrar's Office for entry.
Step 2: Resolve Holds
Your holds (stop flags) appear when you log on to myGoucher. Registration cannot occur unless the hold is removed. Contact the appropriate office to resolve any hold placed on your account such as those noted by Billing, the Registrar's Office, the Health Center, Financial Aid, the Associate Provost's Office, etc., before your assigned registration start day and time.
Step 3: Registration
REGISTRATION: The deadline to initially register for Spring 2018 is Friday, December 15. After this date, students will be charged a $100 late registration fee.
The order of registration has been determined by the students' number of completed credits. Students can view their assigned start time on myGoucher on October 27. Online registration groups will start in 30 minute intervals and students can continue to make online schedule changes from their assigned time through Monday, February 5 at midnight. After this date, through Monday, February 12, students may still drop semester courses, in person in the Office of the Registrar.
Through February 5, students will be able to make schedule changes online only if initial approval for registration was received from the adviser (approval is needed one time only). Your adviser will receive an e-mail showing changes that are made each day they are processed. Closed courses, time overlaps, credit overloads, audits, independent work, and special permission courses will need to be registered for in person, in the Office of the Registrar, as they require a manual override. These changes must be made by Monday, February 5.
Once a manual override is required for any reason, a manual override will be required for any subsequent schedule change, and these will have to be made in person in the Office of the Registrar.
All students may register for 18 credits for spring and fall semester. See course load in the catalogue at http://catalog.goucher.edu/
To register for credit overloads, an approved petition along with a course change form and all required approvals must be submitted to the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies. If approved, the petition and registration materials will be sent to the Office of the Registrar for entry. Students will be additionally charged the part-time tuition rate for all credits over the limit of 18 credits per semester.
If you encounter technical problems, please send an e-mail message to the firstname.lastname@example.org. The helpdesk e-mail will be monitored for problems during registration.
