Undergraduate Midterm Grades

Midterm grading for Spring 2015 undergraduate courses is open. 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 Wednesday, March 18 at 12:00 noon ET.

Spread the Word!

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

  • Resolve their holds
  • Review course prerequisites 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!

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 am, when many offices are unavailable to clear holds for students (see registration times for details). Please encourage to be proactive and resolve holds ahead of time.


Last Day to Withdraw

Wednesday, April 15, 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 Registrar's Office by 5 pm on April 15.

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 15.
