Pre-registration for 4 courses plus Physical Education will occur on-line for first-year students on Friday morning, August 31, from 10:00 - 11:00. Student helpers will be available to assist with this simple process in various locations, both in dorms and in advertised computer clusters around campus. Any lotteries necessary to manage access to over-subscribed courses will be conducted immediately after pre-registration closes. Students may check their registrations on-line on Friday evening or Saturday morning. Most students will have completed their course registration at this time.
Some students will have been lotteried out of a choice, and these students should attend the Saturday registration meeting. This follow-up registration for courses is currently scheduled for Saturday morning, September 1 at 11:00 a.m. in Tarble-in-Clothier. First-year students who have approved registration for four courses (i.e. have not been lotteried out of something they pre-registered for) need not come. Those students who have been lotteried out of a class or laboratory will come to add an alternate one.
