Each semester all Bryn Mawr students preregister for the next semester's courses in consultation with their deans. Once a student has selected a major, she must instead consult her major adviser. Failure to preregister appropriately results in a $15 fine.
Students must then confirm their registration with the deans on the announced days at the beginning of each semester. Failure to confirm registration results in a $25 fine.
Students normally carry a complete program of four courses (four units) each semester. Requests for exceptions must be presented to the student's dean. Students may not register for more than five courses (five units) per semester. Requests for more than five units are presented to the Special Cases Subcommittee of the Committee on Academic Standing for approval.
