Pre-registration Information

The History Department allows majors and minors to pre-register in order to ensure students have access to seats in our courses.

New Pre-registration procedures during remote teaching

Fall 2020 registration (April 14 to April 23) procedures:  

  • Students register for classes through Homer.
  • Although students are not required to meet with their advisors during this crisis, the department strongly suggests working with advisors about their choices.  All faculty are willing to "meet" with students via phone, email, or Zoom. 
  • In order to ensure that history students have preferential access to our classes, both majors and minors can pre-register for classes.  Unfortunately, our usual pre-registration luncheon has been cancelled.  
  • To pre-register:
    1. Professor Ponce has emailed all students a list of the department's fall courses.  The form is also available for download below.
    2. Students can either fill out the form and email to Professor Ponce or simply email her with the necessary information.  However, this must be done by Thursday, March 27.  Students may request up to two 100-, 200- or 300- level courses, contingent upon the course’s enrollment cap.
    3. In addition, students may sign up for one 400-level seminar or tutorial but must get approval from either Professor Breuer or Professor Smith.  Note that students will not be pre-registered into 400-level seminars or tutorials.  Instead, students who email Professor Ponce by the due date will have their seats reserved by having the “instructor permission required” restriction lifted.  Then, during registration (April 14-23), students will be able to add that class in Homer.  
    4. The pre-registration process CANNOT be used to override time conflicts, course capacities, or financial or medical holds.  
    5. Students may only pre-register for 3 classes total across their whole schedule. If a student can preregister in more than one department, they will need to coordinate their choices carefully as the Dean’s office will only allow a student to be placed into 3 courses before their regular registration time.
    6. When a student’s registration time arrives, they complete their registration by adding their other courses.

Students are not required to pre-register, but it is clearly in their best interests to do so.  Students who do not pre-register lose this opportunity for preferential seating and will have to wait to see if openings are available during the regular registration process.
