We hope the first week of the semester is going well. We look forward to seeing all of you next week for brief Confirmation of Registration appointments. These appointments are required of all first-year students so you can be sure you’re taking appropriate courses and the right number of credits. As in the fall, you will be scheduling this appointment through your Dean’s Office Advising 2022 Moodle page.
To prepare for your appointment and to ensure a good semester, please do the following.
1. Think about the courses you’ve selected:
- Are you well prepared for the courses you’re proposing to take? If you haven’t done so already, check your grades from the Fall. Did you perform well in courses that serve as prerequisites to courses you want to take this fall? Make sure you check all your grades, including for courses you took credit/no credit.
- Are you taking courses that help you explore different fields of study, including possible majors?
- Are you taking courses that will enable you to complete your college-wide requirements by the end of the junior year? Here are instructions on how to check what you’ve done so far.
- Do you have a nice balance of courses?
- Is there at least one course that you feel real enthusiasm for?
- Can you physically attend all courses or are there time/transportation conflicts? (Remember that courses that start with an H [ARTS H104] are at Haverford. Check the Blue Bus schedule to make sure you can get there and back in time for your courses.
If you are feeling doubts about any of this or anything else about course selection, your dean wants to help. Walk-in hours are posted online.
2. Look at your registration in BiONiC.
- Are you enrolled in four courses?
- Are enrolled in the courses you actually intend to take?
- Do you still need a permission number to add a course?
Questions or problems with registration? Please consult the Registrar’s Office staff in the lower level of Guild.
We look forward to seeing you next week. Wishing you a good start to a semester of learning in your classes and beyond them,
