UNDERGRADUATE REGISTRATION – Fall 2020

 Academic advising begins for Fall 2020      Wednesday, March 25

Registration begins for Fall 2020               Monday, April 20

STEP 1: ACADEMIC ADVISING

Advising for students is March 25 to April 17. Schedule an appointment with your adviser early.  Advising sessions generally take a half hour, sometimes longer.

Use your DegreeWorks audit and the Academic Catalogue to note required courses, and the fall class schedule to start your planning process. The schedule will be posted on the web on March 25. Send your advisor a complete list of all 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 approvals other than your advisers, an email of approval should be sent to you for these courses, by your adviser during the advising session. The course change form is available at http://www.goucher.edu/registrar/documents/Course-Change-Form.pdf.

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 sent you an email of approval 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 advisor, instructors’ approvals 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.  Advisor, instructor and program director signatures are required for independent work. Registration for any of the above course types must be done in the Registrar’s Office after your assigned day and time for registration. All approvals must be submitted. Emails from the faculty member will be accepted as approvals.  

When registering online, 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 submitting a request approved by your advisor 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 Education Office (CEO) for approval (be sure to check deadlines.)  After approval by the CEO, 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. Online or in person 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

The deadline to initially register for Fall 2020 Monday, May 15. After this date, students will be charged a $100 late registration fee.

The order of registration is determined by the number of credits a student has completed. Students can view their assigned start time on myGoucher on March 25. Online registration groups will start in 30 minute intervals and students can continue to make online schedule changes from their assigned time through Wednesday, September 2, at midnight. After this date, through Thursday, September 10, students may still add semester courses with the instructor’s and advisor’s approval, or drop semester courses with the advisor’s approval, in the Office of the Registrar.

Through September 2 at midnight, 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 the Office of the Registrar, as they require a manual override. These changes must be made by Thursday September 10 at 5:00pm. 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 the Office of the Registrar.

Course credit load is 18 credits for all students. See course load in the catalogue at http://catalog.goucher.edu.

To register for credit overloads, a 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 helpdesk@goucher.edu. The helpdesk e-mail will be monitored for problems during registration.
