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

Fall 2024 registration (begins April 2, 2024) procedures:  

  • Students register for classes through Homer.
  • Students must meet with their advisors to receive a registration access code (RAC).  Without it, students cannot access Homer to register.  All faculty are willing to meet with students via in-person; 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.  Our pre-registration luncheon is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19, 2024, from 12:10 to 1:00 pm in Job Hall, 2nd Floor Conference Room, where faculty will present their fall courses and field student questions about them.  
  • To pre-register:
    1. The pre-registration form will be provided at the bottom of this page in addition to having it e-mailed to students on Monday, March 18, 2024.  Forms will also be available at the luncheon.   
    2. Students can fill out the form and email it to Penny Bogardus . However, this must be done by 5:00 pm on Friday, March 22, 2024.  Students may request up to two 100-, 200- or 300- level courses, contingent upon the course’s enrollment cap. Forms will be processed and courses filled in the order in which they are received.
    3. The pre-registration process CANNOT be used to override time conflicts; course capacities; or financial or medical holds.  
    4. Majors may only pre-register for 2 classes total across their whole schedule. Minors may pre-register for one course.  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 2 courses before their regular registration time.
    5. 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.
