Register for SWAT 999 Placeholder or Register for Swarthmore Linguistics courses when Bionic is open for registration.
All Non-Linguistics classes: PLEASE NOTE: For Fall 2020, we will not use paper registration forms. Please follow the revised steps below. Please read and follow all the instructions carefully.
Swarthmore Fall Classes Begin: Monday, August 31, 2020.
Bryn Mawr students' last day to add a course is Wednesday, September 9th, 2020.
Swarthmore's Academic Calendar is not the same as Bryn Mawr. Please make sure you review when Swarthmore classes start and end (often this is the day before Bryn Mawr starts classes) and if they are changing their meeting schedule during the semester to make up missed days.
Bryn Mawr students taking classes at Swarthmore will receive an email with a user name and password to log in to Swarthmore's Moodle site.
TriCo Linguistics Department Courses
Since the Linguistics department at Swarthmore is part of the TriCo Linguistics department, students may register for the course directly in BiONIC. Your registration will be sent directly to Swarthmore. If your registration is not accepted due to over-enrollment (or any other factor) you will be notified of the results. If you don't see a Linguistics course in Bionic that is being offered, please let the Bryn Mawr Registrar's Office know.
All Non-Linguistics Courses
Step 1: Register for SWAT 999
Declare your intention to enroll in a Swarthmore class by enrolling in the SWAT 999 placeholder course. Once your registration is approved by Swarthmore, this course will be replaced by the actual course you are taking. Students who do not register for SWAT 999 may experience a delay in finalizing registration.
Register for Class Number 2417 for your first course.
Register for Class Number 2418 if you plan to enroll in a second course.
Register for Class Number 2419 if you have received permission to register for a third course.
Step 2: Contact Instructor for Course Permission
Copy & Paste the text box below into an email and send an email to the instructor of the course you want to take. If this is your first email to the instructor, include information about why you want to take the course and how you have met the prerequisites. Please use a separate email message for each course you are requesting permission for. Please note: Swarthmore students register at Bryn Mawr after lotteries are over for Bryn Mawr students. Bryn Mawr and Haverford students are included in lotteries at Swarthmore.
If you receive permission to enroll in the course, please forward that email to both Registrar’s Offices. Please copy the text box below into your email:
BMC Student: Have you taken a course at Swarthmore before?
Student: please use a separate email message for each course you request, using subject line:
Step 3: Permission & Registration
Forward the email with permission from instructor to BOTH the Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore Registrars' Offices. You will then hear from your home school Registrar about your enrollment.
Registration is not complete until you return the emailed permission to BOTH Registrars' Offices by 4pm, Wednesday, September 9, 2020.
After submitting this form if you decide to drop any Swarthmore course, please notify the Registrar’s office at both Institutions.
The three colleges support the Tri-Co Van shuttle service. This is the only transportation Bryn Mawr makes available to you to attend classes at Swarthmore. The schedule is posted online. If you miss the last shuttle or if shuttle service stops due to inclement weather or emergency, you are advised to seek safe emergency housing through the public safety office of the campus on which you find yourself, then contact your professors as needed to let them know why you are not coming and arrange to make up the work, and await the next shuttle as it becomes available.
