Students must register for each semester. Registration takes place in November for the Spring Semester and in late March for the following Fall Semester. Since registration advising is done over a period of days designated for each class, faculty members serving as academic advisors and department chairs are expected to maintain extra office hours during the registration period. At the beginning of each semester, students make any desired changes in the registered schedule and validate their enrollment and the schedule. Students are required to clear any financial obligations they have to the College prior to enrolling. Enrollment clearance is usually the day before classes begin in each semester.
