• To view dates for undergraduate class registration, please view the academic calendar.
  • You should meet with your advisor before class registration begins to talk about your course choices and to make sure you are on the right path to graduate on time. Remember, you are ultimately responsible for fulfilling your degree requirements.
  • When you are ready to register, you will need to visit eCommon and sign in using your ECnet username and password. You should follow the “Registration Instructions” posted on the Registrar’s website. Undergraduates must register for 16 credits.
  • We will review transcripts after each semester as grades are posted. If there is an academic problem, we will attempt to contact you at whichever address, phone, or email address we have on file for you. Serious academic problems may result in dismissal from the program.
  • As each term draws to a close, if you believe you may have an academic issue that might impact your program eligibility, please set up an appointment with David Griffin, Director, Education Abroad and Domestic Programs Office, as soon as possible to discuss the issue.


Due to the special nature of the castle program, after you’ve arrived at the castle add/drops will not be allowed.

Fall & Spring Term

Invoices will be released mid-June for the fall term and mid-November for the spring term.

Summer Term

Students who are accepted to the Kasteel Well summer program will make 3 payments, at regular intervals, a few months before the start of the program.  The Education Abroad and Domestic Programs Office will email information about making castle program summer payments to each accepted student.

College Work-Study at the Castle

Students apply via the online Student Employment system on eCommon. The Office Of Student Affairs at Kasteel Well (OSA) will send students an email about castle jobs as soon as they are posted on eCommon. This usually occurs just before the start of the semester.

There are generally 12–15 work-study positions available at the castle during Fall & Spring terms.

  • Work study is not available during the Castle Summer Program.
  • Work-study eligible students (FWS) take priority over Emerson Employment (EE) students.
  • A work-study position requires balancing academic responsibilities and travel.
  • Before you commit yourself, put some thought into how you are going to handle this added responsibility without becoming overwhelmed.
  • Jobs and work hours will be allocated during orientation weekend at the castle.
