Reg Info for Returning Students

Fall 2014 Returning Student Registration Instructions for Faculty


  • Web Check-in for returning students begins on Monday, August 25.  All students must complete Web Check-in to confirm their attendance at Whitman College.
  • Web add/drop begins on Monday, September 1 at the times shown below and continues through the add/drop period.  Faculty members are encouraged to be available in their offices during regular business hours on Monday and Tuesday (September 1-2) to respond to questions from faculty advisers and students, and to provide possible consent to students wishing to register for closed courses.
  • There is an option on the "Search for Classes" page that allows either a search of all courses or just of the courses with an open status. This will be helpful in determining courses that do not require instructor consent for enrollment.
  • Students who wish to make changes to their schedule must obtain electronic adviser approval.  Advisers can access the clearance utility through the faculty portal at (see the portal instruction sheet).

            Class of 2015 start at 8 am     Class of 2016 start at 12:30 pm       Class of 2017 start at 4 pm

Instructor Course Consent

  • Students trying to add a consent or closed course on the Web will need electronic instructor consent.  You may access this clearance utility at (see the portal instruction sheet).

  •  Remind students that they will then need to confirm their desire to have the course added via CLEo. An automated request will then be sent to the Registrar's Office and the course will be added. Instructor consent does NOT automatically register the student in the course.

Academic Overload approval

  • Students must have a 3.50 or higher cumulative GPA.

  • Students must have a 3.50 or higher previous semester's GPA in courses completed at Whitman.

  • Students must obtain signatures of support from all instructors of the courses they completed the previous semester at Whitman on an Academic Overload Form.
  • Students must submit the Academic Overload Form signed by their adviser and previous semester's instructors to the Registrar's Office for final approval.
  • Requests for more than 18 academic credits that do not meet the above criteria will be granted by the Board of Review only in truly exceptional circumstances in which there is exigent need to take an academic overload (such as the need to graduate).

NOTE: Applied Music is academic credit - not activity credit
