Fall 2014 Registration

Fall Registration is rapidly approaching! Being prepared is one of the best ways to ensure a positive registration experience. Be sure to:

  • Staring March 10, review the course listings, paying special attention to pre-requisites and registration restrictions.
  • Determine your registration time.
  • Read the Registration Instructions.
  • Review your Degree Audit.
  • Meet with your advisor and, if necessary, obtain your PIN. (Check the Registration Instructions to determine whether you will need a PIN to register.)
Summer 2014 Registration

Summer 2014 registration opens online at 9:00 am on Monday, March 10 for both undergraduate and graduate students. Please carefully read the Summer 2014 Registration Information before registering.

Registration Tips and Tricks

Permissions: Did you know you can have registration permissions applied before your registration time? If you're going to need permission to register for a class you want, check the Online Permissions Instructions and get it in advance!

Holds: Make sure you check your holds in eCommon, and if you have any, resolve them before your registration. Many of the offices that remove holds (Health Services, Student Accounts, etc.) will not be open at 7 am. If you wait until your registration time to contact them, those offices will not be available to assist you.

Don't let pre-requisites and holds be unpleasant surprises. Be proactive and use your resources to resolve them in advance!

Midterm Grades

Midterm grades for undergraduate students will be viewable on eCommon on Monday, March 17. Undergraduates, this is your opportunity to see if you are currently earning a grade below "C" in any of your courses.

If you receive one or more midterm grades, we strongly encourage you to contact your professor or advisor to determine the best course of action.

Last Day to Withdraw

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

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

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

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