Registration is conducted electronically. The registration period for the summer and fall semesters begins in March-April of each year, and students are allowed access to the web-based registration system in October-November to register for spring semester classes. Electronic registration for courses in a given semester is permitted until a few days after the beginning of classes.

Prior to the early registration period, all students are provided with class schedules and instructions for accessing their registration page in the online, N.E.S.T. Registration System. Each entry-level student is administratively registered by the School’s Office of Academic and Student Affairs staff for all required courses during the registration period. However, it is the student’s responsibility to review their registration on the Registrar’s web site and to verify the accuracy of their schedule.

Incoming students are pre-registered for their required fall semester courses by the SPAHP Office of Academic and Student Affairs. In subsequent semesters students are required to meet with their academic advisor to discuss enrollment plans and verify academic progress, and to receive the individualized pin number required to access the web-based registration system. Students wishing to enroll in courses requiring instructor consent (e.g., Directed Independent Research courses) must bring a signed Instructor Consent Form to the Office of Academic and Student Affairs in order to receive the course call number required to register.

Students are responsible for verifying that the course load for which they have been registered by the Office of Academic and Student Affairs staff is accurate and complete, and for adding any elective courses of interest to their schedule. Once students verify their registration and log off (or if they neglect to log on) their registration is considered complete, and they are responsible for tuition and applicable fees.

Students in the Post-Professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy pathway are administratively registered by the School’s Office of Academic and Student Affairs staff for all required courses during the registration period. However, it is the student’s responsibility to review their registration on the Registrar’s web site and to verify the accuracy of their schedule..
