All course section numbers (except 700s) indicate on-ground courses that will have assigned classrooms and meeting times.


Courses with section numbers in the 700s are online courses that are offered in a fully asynchronous format.





Instructions & Tips  

Keep the following points in mind as you prepare to register for courses:


  • You can only register for one section of the same course in a single semester. The computer will reject a second section of the same class.
  • Courses taught entirely on ground, in the campus classrooms, have section numbers 100-299, and section 600 and 900 section numbers.
  • Section numbers from 180 to 190 are offered at locations abroad.
  • Section numbers in the 700's are taught online, those in the 740 range are reserved for adult students. 
  • If you are taking a Physical Education course, be certain to leave plenty of time in your schedule for cooling down, showering and/or getting across campus to your next class from the McCann Center.  
  • Try to spread class-meeting days throughout the week to avoid fatigue and an overload of preparations for any given class day.
  • The normal full-time student carries from 12 to 16 credits per semester. Your full-time tuition charge covers this range of credits. You may attempt to take more than 16 credits in a given semester if you have discussed with your advisor. If you wish to enroll in more than 18 credits in a given semester, you must also have permission from The Center for Advising and Academic Services, you can contact them at Be advised that you will be charged by the credit hour for every credit over 16.
  • If you are closed out of a class or if you decide to change your schedule, you may do so during the add/drop period during the first week of classes in each semester.
  • Pay close attention to published deadlines to avoid serious academic and financial penalties. Marist will make every effort to remind you of the important dates and deadlines, but in the end, it is your responsibility to know the deadlines and to meet them.

How do I get an over-ride into a closed course? How do I get a prerequisite waived?

Processing for Overrides, Prerequisite Waivers, and Restriction Waivers

1. A prerequisite waiver request or a restriction waiver request is made by completing the corresponding form, (which can be found at, Student tab/Student Resources/Forms) and sending it to the Academic School for this course in an email that contains the reasons why you are seeking the waiver. The School will notify you of the decision. If approved, the School will send the approved form to the Registrar's Office for processing. The Registrar's Office must activate the exemption. Once that is done, you will be notified by the Registrar and you will then need to go into Banner Self-Service to register yourself for that course. You should submit these forms as soon as possible, so that exemptions may be approved before your scheduled registration time.

2. Overrides approvals into filled classes will not be available during registration due to classroom social distancing requirements required by COVID-19 laws.

**After submitting your forms, sign out of your Banner Self-Service account so that the Registrar’s Office can process your requests, if approved. Registrar is not able to process these forms if you are signed into your account. **

Please do not mail request forms directly to the Registrar - the Registrar will only refer these back to the designated School offices.

How many credits should I register for?

To be considered full-time during the regular academic year (fall and spring semesters), students must register for a minimum of 12 credit hours. For most full-time students, the recommended academic load per semester is 15 credit hours so that they can reach the graduation requirement of 120 credits during the course of a four-year period -- the typical undergraduate experience. During the academic year, a student may elect to attempt a maximum of 18 credit hours each semester, but such a heavy load is not recommended. Students are advised to leave themselves enough time to prepare adequately for all of their courses and to engage in other activities on campus. Each credit taken over sixteen per semester is charged an additional fee at a per-credit-hour rate. To register for more than 18 hours in a single semester, a student must obtain the permission from The Center for Advising and Academic Services at 

The maximum number of credits for which a student may register during the January intersession is three; during the summer, a student may register for a maximum total of nine credits distributed over all Marist summer sessions. Exceptions can be made by the Center for Advising and Academic Services.

How do I find out more about the Pathway in the Marist Core?

Is it important to be full time?

If you are NOT a part-time student and your schedule does not add up to at least twelve credits, be sure to see your advisor immediately so that he/she can help you add courses necessary to bring you up to full-time status. You must be full-time to qualify for most types of financial aid and for housing. You may be removed from housing if you do not meet the enrollment requirements. It is also important to be full-time for billing purposes.

If you need to add course-work to round out your schedule or if you wish to drop a course, you should review your audit, make additional selections, and see your advisor for review.

What if I don't remember my sign on or password?
