All students are required to meet with their academic advisor during the advising period prior to registering for classes.
At the end of the advising session, academic advisor will provide the student with his/her alternate PIN number, which is required to access web registration.
The Regisrar's Office will provide advisors with "Advising Workshets" to be used during their advising appointments. Students can use these sheets to copy their course choices and alternate PIN.
Students will register for courses online during their assigned registration window. Registration priority is based on class level. Seniors register first, followed by juniors, then sophomores, and lastly freshmen.
Students can find their assigned registration day and time on DU Self Service under Registration Status.
Schedule requests of more than 18 hours will need to be processed by the Registrar's Office. For example, a nineteen credit hour schedule would result in one excess hour tuition charge of $1,340 for the semester.
Check if you are meeting:
General education requirements for graduation. Summary information is available in the catalog and under General Education Requirements in this class schedule.
Requirements for the departmental major or minor.
Requirements for admission to graduate or professional school, or for other post-Denison plans.
Students will be able to waitlist for closed courses during web registration. At the time seats become available we will send an automated email notification to the first student on the waitlist.
Students may change advisors whenever they wish. After conferring with the new advisor and getting the necessary approval for the change, the student must report that agreement to the Registrar's Office by completing a Change of Status Form. A link to the form is available online at the Teaching/Learning Tab of MyDenison in the Registrar's Office section.
Students are expected to attend class regularly and complete assignments as scheduled. Since many courses have wait lists, it is imperative that professors be aware of your interest and activity in each course. Should you be absent during the first days of a term and you have not provided the instructor with a suitable explanation, it is conceivable that you may be automatically dropped from the course and your spot given to another student.
Since students are expected to attend class regularly and to participate in class discussions, it is appropriate for faculty to include these factors in their grading process. Normally such policies will be included in a syllabus; however, students concerned about this aspect in determining their grades should discuss the matter with the instructor.
Because of the need for better facilities management, more 8:30 and 2:30 classes will be offered. Students closed out of multiple section courses and whose schedules allow them to take an 8:30 or 2:30 section without conflict, may find themselves in these sections in order to reserve a spot for themselves.
If evening courses or courses beginning in the late afternoon need a final examination time, two possibilities exist:
Once the final class roster can be verified the instructor may ask the Registrar to examine the schedules of the enrolled students and try to find a convenient time for all students fitting the standard 9:00-11:00 or 2:00-4:00 time slots.
If no other time can be found, the examination will likely be scheduled for an evening 6:30-8:30 p.m. The exam code for such courses will appear (Z) to be arranged.
Students participate in Commencement ONLY AFTER THEY HAVE COMPLETED ALL GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS. Students who complete requirements over the summer, or even later, are always eligible to return and participate in the May commencement exercises FOLLOWING their actual completion date.
Falsification or forgery of any College document (e.g., application form, financial-aid form, enrollment form) violates College rules, as outlined in the COURSE OF STUDY under CONDUCT and HONESTY. Suspected violations of this policy are subject to normal judicial procedures.
Online adjustments to schedules are possible throughout the pre-registration period. On and after August 29, 2013 all drops and adds must be approved by the academic advisor and course instructors. The last day to add courses will be September 11, 2013. Students may drop courses until September 25, 2013.
