Advising and registration take place before each semester begins, with late registration and the add/drop period ending during the beginning days of a term (refer to the Online Student (Jenzabar) Access or the Academic Calendar for exact dates, deadlines, tuition and fees). The Office of Admissions gives new students (first-time-to-college and new, transfer students) a status sheet listing all courses needed for an intended degree. Accepted transfer courses are identified and applied towards the degree (where appropriate). The course offerings booklet has instructions for web advising/registration. Appointments for continuing students to be advised and registered are made based upon the student’s classification and division for continuing students.
Courses offered and open seats may also be viewed in Online Student/Faculty Access. The student makes an appointment to see an advisor to plan his/her course of study. All prerequisites, as noted in the catalog, must be met, in order to register for a class. It is the student's responsibility to see that his/her program conforms to academic requirements of the college and meets degree requirements. Non-matriculated students may register according to specified dates listed in the Academic Calendar. New students and students with missing information will be requested to verify and update the Student Information Sheet with any changes prior to registration.
Registration must be completed before admittance to a class. Students must resolve any restrictions or holds on their accounts with the library, athletics department, bookstore, parking fines, bursar or any other campus office before registration is allowed. The student is responsible to take care of all tuition and fees payable to Molloy College with the Office of the Bursar and apply for financial aid to the Office of Financial Aid by the appropriate deadlines. Students not paying their bills may be de-registered.
If the student needs to alter his/her schedule, the student may do so online with their advisor or the student must get appropriate signatures on the add/drop Form to make changes in-person in the Registrar’s Office. Closed classes require the signature of the chairperson (or Associate Dean of the Division) of the department on the proper form and can only be recorded in the registrar's office. If advisors are not available, the signature of the Associate Dean of Academic Support Services may be obtained. Students will be held responsible for all absences resulting from late registration.
Physical presence in a class does not constitute registration. Students who have not registered officially will not receive any credit for the course work. All late registrations and changes in student course schedules are expected to be made before the end of the Change of Program period, as published in the Academic Calendar and Course Offering Booklet.
Courses published in the Course Offering Booklet may be cancelled for budgetary, curricular, or enrollment reason. Revisions will be posted on the bulletin board next to the Office of the Registrar and updated in the Online Student (Jenzabar) Access. Students will be notified and an effort will be made to adjust the student's schedule for cancelled courses.
