Course Registration Forms

Please do not email add/drop or permission requests. Emailed requests will not be processed.

If you have a hold on your account (viewable in WebAdvisor) you will be unable to register for courses until the hold is cleared. Note that all students must be cleared by their advisor prior to registering. Clearance by an advisor will end the ‘RGADV’ hold on your account.

Non-Hartwick students: if you are affiliated with the institution (spouse, child, employee, etc) you must apply for admission through the Registrar’s Office to register for a course. Visit our forms site for the Special Student Application. If you have no affiliation with the college, you must apply through the Office of Admissions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register for a course?

During pre-registration and open add/drop periods you can register for courses electronically in WebAdvisor. Note that courses requiring permission cannot be registered electronically- these courses must be registered in the Office of the Registrar with the correct form.

Is there a limit on how many credits I can take?

Yes, students can register for up to 20 credits in fall/spring, 4 credits in January and are limited to one course per summer session. A petition to the Committee on Academic Standards is required to register above these limits. Exceptions to the summer session one course limit should be directed to the Dean of Academic Affairs. Students are charged over-election fees starting at the 19th credit in fall and spring and 5th credit in January. Click here to view a schedule of overload and other course fees on the Student Accounts web site.

How do I know if a course has an additional fee? What if I add a course late?

Courses marked with a dollar sign ($) carry an additional course fee. Adding a course after the add/drop period incurs a late add fee. To view a schedule of these and other fees on the Student Accounts web site, click here.

How do I know if a course is offered first or second half? Or when a course starts and ends?

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 WebAdvisor and check out the Meeting Information.

How do I view course descriptions or pre-requisites?

All of this information is available in WebAdvisor. Use the WebAdvisor link at the top of the page.

What courses cannot be registered electronically?

Summer courses, senior project/thesis that are labeled ‘490’ (capstones can be registered electronically if not designated ‘instructor permission required’), independent and directed studies, 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.

Why can’t I see Senior Thesis (490), Independent Studies, Directed Studies or Internships on the course schedule?

After several years of assessing the electronic registration system, we made the decision to remove elements of the course schedule at pre-registration that were frustrating for students. This included removing courses that couldn’t be registered electronically and were causing some degree of confusion. Questions about these registrations should be addressed to your academic advisor. These are the folks that can easily assist you with registering these special registrations!
