Third Summer Registration

Important

Third Summer Add Period-- Extra courses may be added during the Third Summer Course Add period beginning 8:00 a.m. (EST) Monday, April 18th through 3:00 p.m. (EST) Thursday, April 21st. The maximum number of courses you may have on your schedule is five courses in each term.

Important-- when using BannerWeb during the Course Add period, it is inadvisable to drop a course needed to meet degree requirements, since most other courses that might fulfill your requirement may be full. If you drop a course and the course then fills, the Office of Academic Support will not be able to re-register you into any full course. Schedules shall be considered preliminary until classes begin.

View 3rd summer elective schedule.

Important notes for registration:

  • If you register for a ten-week elective, you will only be able to register in Term 1. Keep the same day/time slot open in Term 2 (don't register for another elective in that day/time slot) and the Office of Academic Support will register you in the second term.
  • The courses highlighted on the elective schedule are Content Specific.

Please make sure you are familiar with the School policies regarding course and graduation requirements as well as general registration information outlined at https://www.smith.edu/ssw/registrar_registration.php. We suggest you read this document through at least once prior to elective registration.

See below for instructions on completing a Degree Requirement: Self Audit

 

BannerWeb Overview

 

Third-summer registration has two parts:

 

Content Specific Registration (March 6, 2016)

To ensure that all third summer students fulfill their Content Specific elective requirements, during this registration period A16 students will select one Practice elective (must be a Multi-Modality); one HBSE elective (must be an Advanced Social Theory); and one Policy elective (must be a Field of Practice). No more than one Content specific selection per sequence can be made at this point.

 

If your email titled "Important--For Summer 2016 Registration", dated December 3, 2015, indicated that you have already completed one (or all three) of these Content Specific requirements, you must skip that Content Specific selection at this point. In other words, if you have already completed any of the Content Specific electives, you may only register for any that remain unfulfilled.

 

General Elective Registration (March 13, 2016)

During this registration, students will register for one general elective each from the Practice, HBSE, and Policy sequences.

 

You will also register for your Open Sequence electives at this time.

 

Below you will find a chart of the electives that will be offered in summer 2016 (days and time are in process). The Office of Academic Support will post the schedule of available electives approximately one week before online registration.

BannerWeb Registration Details

 

Third-summer students will participate in BannerWeb online registration, for Content Specific electives only, starting Sunday, March 6, 2016, at 12:00 pm Eastern time. Students must have completed the process by 9:00 pm Eastern time on Tuesday, March 8, 2016. OAS staff will be available by phone and email for the first hour of registration on March 6th to answer questions (but please direct technical questions to ITS, which will also be staffed - 413-585-4487). Staff are not able to register students by phone.

 

Third summer students will have a second registration, for their General electives, starting Sunday, March 13, 2016, at 12:00 pm Eastern time. Students must have completed the process by 9:00 pm Eastern time on Wednesday, March 16, 2016. OAS staff will be available by phone and email for the first hour of registration on March 13th to answer questions (but please direct technical questions to ITS, which will also be staffed - 413-585-4487). Staff are not able to register students by phone.

 

Third-summer students register for a total of three electives in Term 1 and four electives in Term 2.

 

You will not be able to register until the dates and times specified above. Although OAS staff will run routine degree audits at the end of each registration period, students bear responsibility for meeting degree requirements. Note that students with holds on their records due to tuition balances owed, library fees, parking fines or late course evaluations will not be able to register until the holds are released by the appropriate office. Holds cannot be removed until normal business hours.

 

Changes can and often do occur after registration. If you are registered for a course that changes term or meeting time, OAS will send a notice of the change to you, attempt to register you again in the changed offering, and follow up if there is a time conflict.

 

Technical instructions for second-summer BannerWeb registration

 

Degree Requirements: Self Audit

 

It is your responsibility to ensure that, by the end of BannerWeb registration, you will have registered for courses that enable you to meet all graduation requirements. Follow these instructions to check what you may need.

At the end of your two registration periods (the Content Specific and the General/Open Choice Registrations) you should have seven (7) courses: three in Term 1 and four in Term 2 with elective requirements met.

Additional courses may be added to your schedule during the Third Summer “Add Only” period or during one of the “Add/drop” periods. The maximum number of courses you can enroll in is five courses in a term. (Caution: when using BannerWeb during the Course Add period, it is inadvisable to drop a course needed to meet degree requirements, since most other courses that might fulfill your requirement are probably full.) Schedules shall be considered preliminary until classes begin.

Electives coded “3rd sum” or “Sr” on the schedule are exclusively open to third-summer students but not required. You may only register for one Senior Integrative Seminar during the General/Open Choice registration. If there are available seats, you may add a second Senior Integrative Seminar during the Third Summer “Add Only” period or during the “Add/drop” periods. 

For detailed descriptions of courses go to the online course listings on the website. New electives must run for three years before they are considered for addition to the permanent online course listings.

Changes can and often do occur after registration. If you are registered for a course that changes term or meeting time, OAS will send a notice of the change to you, attempt to register you again in the changed offering, and follow up if there is a time conflict.

Students who Cannot or Choose Not to do BannerWeb Registration

 

If you cannot or choose not to register during the above times, you may fax your prioritized choices - noting the CRN for each course, your name, your 99 number (all required) and course number (preferred)- before 12:00 noon on Friday, March 4, 2016, Attn: Sharyn Zuffelato, or email them to sswoas@smith.edu by the same date no later than 12:00 noon Eastern Time. Both email and fax provide a date/time stamp that will be used to prioritize registration order (but you will lose your priority status if you fail to provide CRNs or your 99 number!). We are not able to register students by phone. OAS staff will begin registering you at the same time your colleagues begin BannerWeb registration. Be sure to provide a number of alternatives, as OAS staff cannot choose electives for you, and make sure there are no time conflicts in your schedule.
