REGISTRATION FOR SPRING 2016 SEMESTER

Faculty advisors will be enrolling current Blue Mountain College students in spring 2016 classes as follows:
      Seniors – week of October 19
      Juniors – week of October 26
      Sophomores - week of November 2
      Freshmen – week of November 9


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 spring 2016 class schedule. Advisors will then enroll the student in his/her spring courses. Non-degree students will enroll in classes through the Office of the Registrar.

2. Each class (seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen) will be expected to complete the enrollment process for the spring semester within a week's time. Space is limited in some classes so it is imperative that each class pre-register within the deadline given.

If you have questions concerning the enrollment process, please contact the Office of the Registrar. Registration for the spring semester is not complete until each student has obtained clearance from the Office of Business Affairs. An announcement will be made in the near future when the deadlines are set. (Watch the Blue Mountain College Web Site for specific details concerning registration deadlines.) Students who complete registration after the announced registration period will be assessed a late registration fee.

Note: The spring class schedule should be available by the week of October 19.
