Physical Education courses marked with a ‘Z’ in the section are second half courses, those without are first half courses. This is also true for a handful of Art courses. However, the most effective way to determine when a course starts and ends is to bring the course up in Self-Service and check out the Meeting Information.
Senior project/thesis that are labeled ‘490’ (capstones can be registered electronically if not designated ‘instructor permission required’), independent and directed studies, course repeats, internships, courses that are closed, courses that require instructor permission and courses that conflict. All of these courses must be registered using the appropriate form found on this web site or in the Registrar’s Office. Note that your advisor or the instructor cannot register you for these types of courses – you need to process the transactions with the Registrar’s Office.
After several years of assessing the electronic registration system, we made the decision to remove elements of the course schedule at registration that were frustrating students. This included removing courses that, per Hartwick policy, couldn’t be registered electronically and were causing some degree of confusion. Questions about these registrations should be addressed to the Registrar’s Office.
Hartwick’s academic divisions are Humanities, Physical and Life Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences.
