FOR SUMMER 2017 TERMS AND FALL 2017 SEMESTER
Faculty advisors will be enrolling current Blue Mountain College students in summer 2017 and fall 2017 classes as follows: Seniors – week of February 27 Juniors – week of March 6 Sophomores - week of March 20 Freshmen – week of March 27
Students are asked to follow instructions listed below:
1. Each degree-seeking student must meet with his/her advisor to obtain approval of his/her summer 2017 and fall 2017 class schedule. Advisors will then enroll the student in his/her summer and fall courses. Non-degree students will enroll in classes through the Office of the Registrar.
IMPORTANT NOTE!!! Students planning and enrolling in online courses--especially the summer online courses--should be certain that they know the beginning and ending dates of the courses (i.e., the Term I online summer courses taught following the distance education program schedule begin May 1, before the spring semester is over, and the Term II online summer courses following the distance education program schedule will not end until August 20. Other online courses taught following the regular academic calendar will begin on May 29 and end on July 23.)
2. Each class (seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen) will be expected to complete the scheduling process for the summer terms and fall semester within a week's time. Space is limited in some classes so it is imperative that each class complete the scheduling process within the deadline given.
If you have questions concerning the enrollment process, please contact the Office of the Registrar. Registration for the summer terms and fall semester is not complete until each student has completed required forms and has obtained clearance from the Business Office. (A GPS link will be available on the Blue Mountain College Web Site at a later date. This link will direct all students to required registration forms and specific registration information/deadlines. Watch for an upcoming announcement with more details and deadlines. You can track registration progress through document tracking on your student portal.) Charges for the fall semester will be announced soon after approval by the Board of Trustees.
NOTE: Advisors of candidates for degrees for summer 2017 will need to be certain to enroll these students in their summer coursework.
