No. Since most schedules require additional action at the time of Registration, you still need to be actively involved to register for classes.
No, a registration does not guarantee a seat in the class.
You will know when you are truly registered for a class section when "Registered" is displayed in the status column of your summary. "Pending" or "Waitlisted" are not registered statuses.
Yes, no registration error checking occurs while planning. Registration error checking takes place when you select submit to register for a class in the Register for Classes section.
You will have continuous access to register and add through the 5th class day, and drop classes through the 12th class day in the fall/spring semesters. You should plan to register as soon as possible once your early registration time arrives in order to have the best selection of available classes.
Log-on BearWeb, select Student Academic Services>Registration>Registration Status. The date and time for your registration will be listed under Registration Status.
No. We will be setting minimum credit hours to 1 to prevent students from dropping their last class beginning the first day of the semester. The only exceptions will be international students, whose Visa's depend on maintaining a certain number of credit hours, and student athletes. Those students will have minimum hours of 12 (UG), or 9 (GR). (Note: This minimum credit hour process has been in place for many years for student athletes.)
When a student is both adding and dropping a class at one time (i.e. dropping ENG 1302 and adding STL 1101), continue to use the existing paper form since students will not be able to add classes via BearWeb after the 5th class day. The Office of the Registrar will accept completed add/drop form signed by the student via email directly from advisors.
It is the student's responsibility to drop the advised class within the allotted time. If the student missed their window, it is up to each advising unit to determine how this situation will be handled (requiring a new conversation/appointment, or just via email). The only way a student will be able to drop the class section is if a new advising notation is added to UAS.
NEW - Beginning in Fall 2018, classes in a fall or spring semester may be added through the first five class days of the semester via BearWeb. Also, a Fall 2018 pilot will allow students to drop classes via BearWeb through the 50th class day in a regular Fall or Spring semester. Students will need to seek approval from their advisor for a drop beginning on the 13th day of the semester. Another reason for not being able to register is an INACTIVE student status, which may result from having graduated or withdrawn from the university during a prior semester.
A closed class means that the enrollment has met maximum capacity. You may contact the academic department and request they issue a permit. If they do, go to the Add/Drop option of Bearweb and enter the five-digit CRN (course reference number) of the course and SUBMIT.
A grade of DF or WF (last used for Spring 2013) calculates in your GPA as a grade of F.
During summer sessions, course credits can be earned at Baylor concurrently with other institutions as long as the total course load does not exceed 19 semester credit hours for the entire summer. The University strongly recommends against students being enrolled in greater than 8 hours simultaneously for a term(s) that is fewer than 8 weeks in duration.
Concurrent enrollment is not permitted during Fall and Spring semesters without approval from an academic dean's office.
