Summer 2014 Registration

Summer 2014 registration opens online at 9:00 am on Monday, March 10, for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Please instruct any of your students who are planning on registering for summer courses to review the Summer 2014 Registration Information before March 10.
Summer Semester Payment Policy:

If students register from March 10 – April 14: Full payment is due on April 15, 2014. If payment is not settled by the due date, course(s) will automatically be dropped. There are no exceptions.

If students register on or after April 15: Full payment is due immediately. If payment is not settled, course(s) will automatically be dropped. There are no exceptions.

Remember, Emerson's online permission policies remain in effect for the summer term.

Spread the Word!

The Registrar's Office is strongly encouraging that, prior to their registration time, students:

  • Resolve their holds
  • Review course pre-requisites and course restrictions
  • Obtain online permissions

These recommendations go a long way towards minimizing registration disappointment and reducing unpleasant surprises. Any assistance in spreading the word to students would be greatly appreciated!

Undergraduate Midterm Grades

Midterm grading for Spring 2014 undergraduate courses will open on Monday, March 10. Please review the Midterm Grading Instructions and submit grades for any of your undergraduate students who currently have a grade of C- or lower.

If none of your undergraduates currently have a grade of C- or lower, please send an email to Please be sure to note the course code and title when reporting that you have no grades to report. This email allows us to record your participation in midterm grading for the semester.

Midterm grades are due on Friday, March 14, at 12:00 noon ET.

Student Registration and Holds

If your office places holds on student accounts that prevent them from registering, you will hopefully be seeing an increase in student traffic before the registration period begins.

Most registration times begin at 7:00 a.m., when many offices are unavailable to clear holds for students (see registration times for details). Students are encouraged to be proactive and resolve holds ahead of time.

Last Day to Withdraw

Friday, April 11, is the last day for a student to withdraw from a course or from the College.

To withdraw from a course, a student must review Emerson's Course Withdrawal Policy and submit a completed Course Withdrawal Form to the Student Service Center by 5:00 pm on April 11.

To withdraw from the College, students should review Emerson's College Withdrawal Policy and turn in the appropriate paperwork by 5:00 pm on April 11.

Change to Waitlist Process

In response to student and faculty feedback, the waitlist process for Fall 2014 registration has been modified.

Students will be able to join a waitlist through Thursday, May 1. Students will not be able to join a waitlist after this date.

Waitlists will continue to function through August 29, the Friday before classes begin.
