- Please clear your account with the business office before registering. Students with business office balances will not be able to register. Please contact the business office at ext. 3114 for more information.
- Declaring majors: Students who will have 56 or more credits should formally declare a major prior to registering. Students in this category may be blocked from registering if they have not declared a major.
- Declaring minors: Students who started prior to the Fall of the 2009 semester who will have 92 or more credits should formally declare a minor prior to registering. Please note: Students with a double major, an interdisciplinary major (that requires 60 credits or more) and special programs, the UMDNJ dual degree program , the Education Program with the College of Saint Elizabeth and approved 3-2 Engineering programs are not required to declare minors.
- Writing requirement: CLA students are required to satisfy the college writing requirement by the end the second semester of their sophomore year. Please see the catalog for more information.
- Materials: The course list, catalog, and catalog supplement are all available online. In addition to the courses offered for a term, the course offering now lists the required textbooks for each course. To view the required readings for a section, select the book link listed directly under the course. The book’s title, author, edition, publisher, and price (new and used) will be listed. Special note on Textbook Refunds: Students purchasing books via the Drew University Bookstore (Follett) are eligible to receive a full refund if a text book has to be returned. Students should contact the university bookstore for a full explanation of the Follett refund policy. Students purchasing books from other establishments (ie, Borders, Barnes and Noble, amazon.com etc. are subject to the refund policies of these organizations.)
- Pre-requisite Courses: Pre-requisites will be labeled on the Detailed Class Information portion of TreeHouse Self-Service; Students should be sure to have met these as listed online.
- Wait-Lists: Neither mere class standing nor mere time and date of registration establish ultimate priority. For example, a senior electing a course may be “bumped” by a junior or sophomore major or minor taking the course as part of the major or minor requirements.
- Pass/Unsatisfactory: Full time students with sophomore or higher standing (26 or more credits) may elect one course per semester on a P/U basis (in addition to Physical Education courses). The course must fall outside the major and may not be used for meeting general graduation requirements. A course should be placed on P/U at the time of registration (or when a course is added during the add period); a course elected on the P/U basis may be changed to a regular graded basis only during the first two weeks of the semester. Likewise, a course elected on regular grading may be changed to that of P/U only during the first two weeks of the semester. If you are electing a course on Pass/Unsatisfactory basis, enter “P/U” after the course title on your registration form. A pass grade requires completion of course requirements at D range or higher level. Pass grades are not averaged into the students GPA. However, an unsatisfactory grade will be averaged into the student’s GPA.
- Maximum CLA Registration is 21 credits. Only the Academic Standing Committee may grant permission to exceed that limit; petitions are online here. An additional tuition charge is made for each credit carried in excess of 21 (rate per credit depends upon semester of original enrollment; see Business Office for schedule).
- Regularly classified degree candidates must carry a minimum of 12 credits per semester, except in the final semester of the senior year. Students registered for less than 12 credits in their last semester should contact their Financial Aid Counselor to determine eligibility for financial assistance. Students registered for less than 12 regardless of semester are not eligible for Dean’s List notation.
- Registration for Graduate-level Courses: qualified students in the College may enroll for appropriate courses offered in the Theological or Graduate Schools, subject to the approval of the advisor, the dean of the college, the dean of the school concerned, and the instructor of the course (special forms available at the registrar’s office). The student must have a grade point average in the major of at least 3.00 and must have all pre-requisites as set by the instructor and the area, including any language requirements.The total number of undergraduates in such a course may not exceed one third of the enrollment.
- Internship Project: Students seeking credits for field work should register for INTC 200 as a course and file project forms with the Internship Office. Students registering for INTC 200 should have signatures from the internship director. Internships are 2 or 4 credits.
