How Do I Register For Classes?

You’ll use Self-Service for course planning and registration, check on any holds, find your priority registration dates/times, and see your Anticipated Completion Date. To minimize discrepancies, no other platform should be used for these actions. See the deadlines posted on the Academic Deadlines & Important Dates web page for restrictions.

Courses that require instructor permission, senior thesis/projects, independent/directed studies, closed courses, course repeats and internships cannot be registered electronically.

Registration forms are located here:

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

When Can I Register?

Your registration date and time is assigned in Self-Service based on your priority group. Priority groups are based on your Anticipated Completion Date. Check the Academic Deadlines & Important Dates calendar and Self-Service for your priority registration time.

If you have a hold on your account (viewable in Self-Service and in Navigate) you will be unable to register for courses until the hold is cleared.

Non-Hartwick students: You must apply for admission through the Registrar’s Office to register for a course. Visit our forms page for the Non-Degree Student Application.

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.

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.
