How to be cleared to register: Students should schedule meetings with their advisors well in advance of the registration deadline to review their records, their proposed registration and to be cleared to register for the next semester. The advisor must clear the student in SONISWEB in order to be able to register online. (See also Registration Holds below.)
Seminary Account: Be sure your Seminary account is clear, and that all forms and documents required by Admissions, Field Education or the Registrar have been submitted as requested and library resources are returned when due.
SONISWEB Pre-Bill: The Pre-bill will show tuition and fees for the semester. Discounts (for 12 or more credits), scholarships and/or government loans will be applied after the deadline to drop classes without penalty. Payment may be made from the pre-bill and is due no later than January 3, 2014. See Section 6 of the Student Handbook for complete details and procedures. Registrations are not valid until tuition is paid in full, a Stafford loan has been certified, and/or a deferred payment plan has been approved by the Business Office.
Registration Holds: Even if your advisor has cleared you for on-line registration, you may be placed on Registration Holdfor any of the following:
Outstanding balance on your Seminary account.
Outstanding documents or resources such as transcripts, clearances, references, library resources, etc.
Register On-line for courses using the SONISWEB module [Instructions] Your ID is your Seminary-assigned e-mail address. Your PIN was chosen by you at your first access.
Audit or Directed Study: Registrations for Audit and Directed Study cannot be completed online. Submit completed and signed Directed Study Proposal Form or Audit Form, both of which are on the Seminary website.
CPE Registration (PT354): A copy of documentation of acceptance into a program from the CPE site must accompany your registration. The credits will not be registered until documentation has been submitted. See Sections 5 and 6 of the Student Handbook for additional information. Students in the combined MDiv/Chaplaincy program with LGH or those for whom CPE is the field education site will not register for PT354.
Prerequisites and Class Size Limitations: Be sure to note courses for which there are prerequisites and/or class size limits. Due to classroom size limitations, only degree-seeking students are guaranteed a place in MDiv required courses. At the discretion of the Dean, consideration will be given to adding a second section, which may be taught by an adjunct professor, if a course is filled with the maximum number of credit students.
Master’s students should register for 100-, 200- or 300-level courses only. Every effort has been made to schedule required courses at times that will not conflict. Keep in mind that required courses are offered every year, while most electives are offered on a 2- or 3-year rotation.
Cross-Cultural Registration: Students who have been approved to go on the Cross-Cultural trip may choose to register for 3 elective credits by registering for MS2033. Students who do not wish to receive 3 elective credits should register for MS203S. Students who have a pre-approved Cross-cultural Alternative on file should see the registrar to register for that component.
EM310 Registration: Students must register for Section 1 or 2. Each section is limited to 12 students. All students registered for EM310 must attend the Plenary on WEDNESDAYS at 4:00 pm AND one section on Monday or Tuesday as scheduled.
