To Be Prepared:

Adviser Clearance: You MUST have your adviser's electronic clearance to pre-register. Contact your adviser to request a meeting and request clearance. Those who do not have adviser clearance, will NOT be able to register (this is scary - don't put yourself in that position).

Where to go: Pre-registration will be accessed in the Portal (my.whitman.edu) under the Registration tab. The Portal is where you will also find your wishlist and search for classes.

Other Key Info:

Course Consent: You will need electronic instructor consent for closed courses. Once you receive consent, you get an automated email on how to accept the consent. Once you accept the consent the Registrar's Office will register you for the course. Instructor consent does NOT automatically register you in the course.

Seat Capacities: Capacities will be updated by noon each day for classes reserving seats by class year.

Academic Overload: You may register for up to 18 academic credits and unlimited activity credits during Pre-registration. Students wishing to enroll in an academic overload (19-21 academic credits) must wait until the start of spring semester to add credits upon approval of an Academic Overload form.

Course Conflicts: To register for a class conflict, you must complete a Course Conflict Resolution form (available on the Registrar's web page or in the Registrar's office). You will register for the conflicting class in the Registrar's Office (MEM 212).

Academic Evaluations: You can view your Academic Evaluation online through the portal to confirm degree requirements.

Waitlists: You can add yourself on up to four class waitlists. Add the class to your wishlist and click the "Add to Waitlist" link. You will have the opportunity to provide information on why you need/wish to take this course. There is no need to email the instructor once you have added your name to the waitlist.

Assistance During Pre-registration: The Registrar's Office will be staffed during all Pre-registration appointment times. For assistance, you may use the "Live Chat" link on the Registration page, call the office at x5983, email registrar@whitman.edu, or visit Memorial 212.
