Registration Appointment Times

To Be Prepared

Adviser Clearance

You MUST have your adviser’s electronic clearance to pre-register. Contact your adviser to request a phone or online 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 Information

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 the 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 (or in the Registrar’s Office). You will register for the conflicting class in the Registrar’s Office (MEM 212) as you will not be able to add the conflicting classes online.

Academic Evaluations

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


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.
