2001-2003 Academic Catalog
2003-2005 Academic Catalog
Students register for classes during assigned registration periods prior to the beginning of each term. Weekend College students may register in person or by mail according to the published calendar. All first-year and sophomore students in the Day Program on the St. Paul campus are required to obtain the signature of their advisor on their registration form. All students in healthcare certificate programs and associate degree programs on the Minneapolis campus must obtain clearance from their advisor to register. All students are strongly encouraged to consult their academic advisor for assistance in planning their registration (see Academic Advising section of this catalog). Students who wish to register for more than 18 credits in one term must obtain written approval from their advisor. A late fee may be charged for all returning students who register on or after the registration deadline. This fee does not apply to changes in registration.
Students must adhere to all prerequisite, corequisite and concurrent course requirements, unless the requirement has been waived by the instructor. Definitions:
All students are cautioned to attend the first class session of each course for which they register, as instructors are free to reassign spaces to students when there are unexcused absences.
- Prerequisite: must be taken prior to the upper-level course
- Corequisite: may be taken either prior to or the same term as the upper-level course
- Concurrent course: must be taken with the accompanying course
- Recommended: not required, but may better prepare the student for the upper-level course
Prerequisite, corequisite and concurrent course requirements are listed at the end of every course description in this catalog.
Registration procedures and policies for Summer Session classes are available on the College's Web site. Students may register for summer courses in person or by mail.
CHANGES IN REGISTRATION
Associate program students may add or drop courses via the Web until published deadlines. After the deadline, all changes in registration must be made in writing as noted below.
Baccalaureate students must make all changes in registration (including section changes within the same course) in writing. No change in registration takes effect until the request has been received and processed by the Registrar's Office. Telephone or voicemail requests to drop or add courses cannot be processed. If a student stops attending class and does not officially drop the course, the student will be charged for the course and the instructor may award a failing grade for the course.
Forms for dropping and/or adding courses are available in the Registrar's Office. Courses may be added on a space available basis until the deadline for adding classes. The instructor's signature will be required after the published deadline. The term calendar contains the deadline for dropping a course without notation on the transcript. Courses dropped between this date and the last day to withdraw result in a W (Withdrawal) notation on the transcript. Courses dropped after the last day to withdraw automatically receive a grade of F. Students are financially responsible for every course for which they register; the amount of tuition refunded for a dropped course is established by deadlines found in the Summary of Financial Procedures distributed by the Student Accounts Office. Students are expected to read this publication and adhere to published deadlines.
REGISTRATION AT OTHER COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES
Students working toward a degree at the College of St. Catherine and planning to register for courses at other colleges and universities must receive prior written approval from the Registrar's Office in order to transfer that course work to their St. Catherine's academic program.
