Advisement & Preparing for Registration

1.  Each semester all students (both graduate and undergraduate) should prepare for registration several weeks ahead of time using the following steps: Look forward to and read your registration scheduling email. This email is sent to your Eagle Mail account and directs you to your MyClarion account for your registration scheduling time, earned credit hours, advisor(s), and any registration holds.

2.  Review your academic progress. This can be done through your MyClarion Academic Advisement Report (degree audit).

3.  Address any registration holds you have on your account. Contact each office that has a hold on your account and take the appropriate action to remove the hold.  Students should correct holds at least 24 hours in advance of registering.

4.  Make an appointment to see your advisor during their regularly scheduled office hours. It is important for you to discuss your academic progress with your advisor. A discussion with your advisor prior to registration can help you clarify any degree or graduation requirements and help you avoid the Drop/Add/Swap process. Several departments activate an advisor hold flag which must be removed prior to registration. First year freshmen and new transfer students are required to meet with their advisor to review and discuss degree requirements. The advisor hold will be removed to permit registration after that meeting. Students should always bring the following to their advisement appointment: a proposed class schedule, alternate course selections, and any questions you have for your advisor.

5.  Plan a tentative course schedule. Check course availability, general education flags and requirements, co-requisite and pre-requisite courses, and any additional restrictions for a course. Also, pay special attention to course notes. These notes list restrictions or special circumstances. Be sure to show your advisor your tentative schedule during your advising appointment. Graduate students should not enroll in an elective course without prior approval from their advisor. Continue to check course availability on the web until the time you register. This will help determine your need for alternate course selections.

General Registration Notices

REGISTRATION FOR Summer 2012 and Fall 2012

April 9 - May 9

Students should watch their Eagle Mail for information regarding scheduling appointment date and time.

Eligibility: Registration

Eligibility is based on the number of credits you have earned as of March 23. The order of priority scheduling for credit hour groups, will be randomly assigned by the system starting with the highest credits earned.  All students (graduate, undergraduate, and post-baccalaureate) enrolled during the Spring 2012 term, should prepare a Fall 2012 schedule of classes no later than May 9.

Graduate students should take advantage of the web registration process. If you are officially admitted, but not currently enrolled in course work at Clarion, you may gain access to the web by contacting the Office of Graduate Programs at 814-393-2337.

Graduate students with the department of Library Science have an advisement hold placed on their account. The hold can only be removed if the student meets with his or her advisor at least 24 hours prior to their scheduled registration time.

Readmitted, and newly admitted Graduate and transfer students may also register during this registration period. Please contact the Office of Graduate Programs (for graduate students) or the department of your major or your college dean’s office (for readmits and new transfers) for specific registration information.

Maintaining Appropriate Academic Progress

All students (undergraduate and graduate) are responsible for successful completion of prerequisites and maintaining the academic standards of your college. If you have not completed course prerequisites or your QPA does not meet your degree program standards, you will be dropped from the course(s) and will need to select an alternate course(s).

If a currently registered class conflicts with your registration scheduling time, class attendance takes priority.  You can register at any time the system is available after your scheduled time.

Special Scheduling Activities that Cannot Be Completed on the Web

All students (undergraduate and graduate) will be expected to use the web registration system to prepare their class schedules. There are, however, some scheduling activities which cannot be processed using the web.

Auditing a Class – If you wish to audit any course that you scheduled, you must notify the Registrar's Office, in writing, prior to the end of the drop/add period. No credits, quality points or grades are assigned for audited courses.

Closed or Reserved Sections – If it is essential that you schedule for a course and the sections are reserved or closed, you must contact the department responsible for the course.

Co-ops/Internships – An approved learning contract must be submitted to the Registrar's Office by the end of the drop/add period.

Co-requisite Activities – The web registration system requires students to schedule all co-requisite activities (lecture, lab, clinical) concurrently. If you have a valid reason for scheduling one co-requisite without the other, the reason should be documented in writing, approved by your college dean, and forwarded to the Registrar's Office.

Credit Overload (more than 18) – Students will be able to schedule up to 18 credits. Any additional credits will require a cumulative QPA of 3.00 and your college dean’s approval. Students are charged additional fees for every credit over 18.

Independent Study/Individualized Instruction – To request permission to take a course for independent study or individualized instruction, you must file a petition and obtain the required signatures of approval.  Forms are available in department offices.  Approved forms will be processed at the Registrar's Office.

Mixed Career Courses (undergraduates taking graduate courses) – Undergraduate students who wish to take graduate level courses for undergraduate credit must obtain written approval from their college dean and forward it to the Registrar's Office for processing.

Time Conflicts – You may not schedule two or more courses that meet at the same time or courses with meeting times that overlap. If there is a valid reason for doing so, it should be documented in writing, approved by the instructors involved, and processed at the Registrar’s office.

Graduate Students – who have not been admitted, wish to enroll in an undergraduate course, wish to register for an independent study, internship or closed course should contact the Office of Graduate Programs.

Completing the Registration Process (including Schedule Adjustments and Late Registration)


All students who created their course schedule during registration for the upcoming semester may take advantage of the schedule adjustment period to make any necessary changes to their schedule. This includes graduate students, undergraduate students, non-matriculated students with permission to register, post-baccalaureate students, readmitted, and newly admitted graduate and transfer students. If you belong to one of these groups, but are unsure of your status, you may check on-line under registration status or you may contact the Registrar’s Office for clarification.

Students who should have registered during the previous registration scheduling time may also take advantage of the Schedule Adjustment and Late Registration time period. Please remember if you wait till Schedule Adjustment and Late Registration to start scheduling for next semester your class selection options will be limited.

Canceling your Registration

If you do not plan to attend classes for which you registered, you must cancel your schedule by notifying the Registrar's Office, in writing, to avoid incurring any charges. Please refer to the university calendar and refund schedule for important dates concerning cancellation, drop/add, and withdrawals. A 100% refund will be granted only if a student’s request is processed before or on the first day of classes.
