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

Spring 2021 registration (November 10 to November 19) 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 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.  Instead, we will have a Zoom gathering on Tuesday, October 20, from 12:10-1:05 p.m. where faculty will present their spring courses and field student questions about them.  
  • To pre-register:
    1. Professor Ponce has emailed all students a pdf describing the department's spring 2021 courses (also available below).  The pre-registration form will be emailed to students the week of October 19.  A pdf form is also available at the bottom of this page.
    2. Students can either fill out the form and email to Penny Bogardus or simply email her with the necessary information.  However, this must be done by noon on Monday, November 2.  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. In addition, students may sign up for one 400-level seminar but must get approval from either Professor Ablard or Professor Ponce before submitting the form.  Note that students will not be pre-registered into 400-level seminars or tutorials.  Instead, students who email Penny by the due date will have their seats reserved by having the “instructor permission required” restriction lifted.  Then, during registration (November 10-19), 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.
