Instructions & Tips  

  • See your advisor early and be prepared.
  • Before your appointment with your advisor:
    • Review your degree audit. Print a copy and bring it to your appointment.
    • Review the catalog and read the specific requirements which must be completed within your major  and within the Core.
    • Review the class schedule and prepare a preliminary semester schedule. Be sure to “shop” from the requirements listed on your degree audit.
    • Use the Look Ahead feature on DegreeWorks to see if a course will cover a requirement.
    • Have your worksheet ready, with all CRN numbers.
  • During your appointment:
    • Review your career and academic goals.
    • Develop or amend your four year plan.
    • Discuss the specific or general requirements of your major and/or Core with your advisor.
    • At the end of your appointment, verify that your advisor has enabled you for registration.
  • After your appointment:
    • Check to make sure your advising hold has been removed and that you have no other holds (i.e. financial) on your account. Go to the Student Tab in myMarist and click on Student Records and then View Holds.  If you have any holds on your account, the system will NOT allow you to sign-in and register.
  • When registering
    • Have your worksheet ready, with all CRN numbers.
    • Sign on myMarist and follow the registration instructions.
    • Review your schedule CAREFULLY for any errors. Pay special attention to course section numbers.
  • Keep the following points in mind as you prepare to register for courses:
    • You can only register for one section of the same course in a single semester. The computer will reject a second section of the same class.
    • Some courses listed in the registration materials may not be on the Poughkeepsie campus and/or may require transportation. Undergraduate day courses with section numbers from 111 - 149 and undergraduate evening courses with section numbers from 200 - 230 are held on the Poughkeepsie campus. Other section numbers are held on different Marist extension sites. Section numbers from 180 to 190 are offered at locations abroad. Section numbers in the 700's are taught online, those in the 740 range are reserved for adult students.  Courses with a section number in the 800's are hybrid courses (taught half in the classroom and half online).
    • If you are taking a Physical Education course, be certain to leave plenty of time in your schedule for cooling down, showering and/or getting across campus to your next class from the McCann Center.
    • Try to spread class-meeting days throughout the week to avoid fatigue and an overload of preparations for any given class day.
    • The normal full-time student carries from 12 to 16 credits per semester. Your full-time tuition charge covers this range of credits. You may attempt to take more than 16 credits in a given semester if you have permission from your advisor. If you wish to enroll in more than 18 credits in a given semester, you must also have permission from The Center for Advising and Academic Services. Be advised that you will be charged by the credit hour for every credit over 16.
    • If you are closed out of a class or if you decide to change your schedule, you may do so during the add/drop period during the first week of classes in each semester.
    • Pay close attention to published deadlines to avoid serious academic and financial penalties. Marist will make every effort to remind you of the important dates and deadlines, but in the end, it is your responsibility to know the deadlines and to meet them.

Back to FAQ

How many credits should I register for?

A typical semester’s schedule totals 15 credits (non-credited developmental courses count toward this total). This generally translates into five three-credit courses. Full-time tuition pays for twelve to sixteen credits, and your schedule can be in this range based on individual circumstances and preferences.

Back to FAQ

Is it important to be full time?

If you are NOT a part-time student and your schedule does not add up to at least twelve credits, be sure to see your advisor immediately so that he/she can help you add courses necessary to bring you up to full-time status. You must be full-time to qualify for most types of financial aid and for housing. You may be removed from housing if you do not meet the enrollment requirements. It is also important to be full-time for billing purposes.

If you need to add course-work to round out your schedule or if you wish to drop a course, you should review your audit, make additional selections, and see your advisor for review.

Why would it not allow me to enroll in a certain course?

To answer this question, it is helpful for you to understand the system of prerequisites and restrictions that are part of the registration process. The Center for Advising & Academic Services has detailed information here.

Back to FAQ

How do I get an over-ride into a closed course? How do I get a prerequisite waived?

Over-ride Form (yellow)

If a course has reached its maximum enrollment, you may request an over-ride on a yellow Over-ride form.  You will need to get the signatures from the faculty member of the class you wish to gain access into and the Dean/ Chair of the department of the course. The form should be brought to the School office for a School stamp. School offices have the ability to put an expiration date on the Over-ride Form. You then must bring the form to the Registrar’s Office. If you do not submit it to the Registrar’s Office by the expiration date, the form will not be honored. The Registrar’s Office will check to make sure you have all the information they need and then will process the change. You need to make sure you have room in your schedule for the change and that you do not exceed 16 credits if you are not intending on taking more.

Prerequisite Permit Form (green)

You will need to get the signature the Dean or Chair of the department of the course for which you wish to waive the prerequisite. The form should be brought to the School office for a School stamp. School offices have the ability to put an expiration date on the Prerequisite Permit Form. You then must bring the form to the Registrar’s Office. If you do not submit it to the Registrar’s Office by the expiration date, the form will not be honored. The Registrar’s Office will check to make sure you have all the information they need and then will grant the waiver. You will be asked to immediately use a nearby computer to register for the course once the Registrar’s staff has cleared the permission for you. It remains YOUR responsibility to register for the class.

Back to FAQ

What if I feel I have met a prerequisite, but the system won't let me register?

You should first review your Degree Audit. Is the prerequisite there? If yes, contact the Registrar's Office to resolve the conflict. If the prerequisite is not listed on your audit, research why. Did you forget to have the Advanced Placement credits or transcript sent? Start the process immediately. Is there some other issue? Contact your advisor to explore your options.
