Traditional Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Student Registration

A+S Student Web Registration Process

For current students priority web registration is open in April for summer and fall semesters and in November for spring semesters. Web registration will remain open for two weeks and then will close. Periodically, online add/drop will re-open for declared students. Undeclared and new students will require written approval from their academic advisor either via email or on an add/drop form after priority web registration submitted to the Office of the Registrar for processing.

New incoming students will register via Student Planning facilitated by registrar staff and academic advisors at new student orientation.

Priority Web Registration

The Registration Priority Schedule is published prior to each term or semester. Individual registration time assignments appear on Arts and Sciences student records on EC Online Services two weeks prior to registration. Students can view web registration times by logging into the EC Online Services, and checking notifications.

Registration priority day is determined by class standing. Priority days follow class standing. Seniors register on the first day of priority registration, juniors the next day, then sophomores, then freshmen. COF and non-matriculating students are permitted to register the week after priority registration to ensure Emmanuel students have first access to courses.

Class standing: Current class standing is determined by the number of credits you have earned/completed. Your earned credits appear on the “Total Credits” bar in the “At a Glance” section of your My Progress page on Student Planning.

Total Credits Progress Bar

Dark Green:   Completed Credits- Class standing is determined based on this number
Light Green:   Credits in progress- These credits are not factored into class standing
Yellow:              Planned credits/courses for future semesters

The following credit totals determine your class standing:

Freshman 0-31 credits earned
Sophomore 32-63 credits earned 
Junior 64-95 credits earned
Senior 96 + credits earned


Once your registration day is determined, an algorithm determines your registration time randomly while considering your current Emmanuel registered class schedule. Internships, work, and volunteer schedules cannot be factored into registration time assignments.
