REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Registration Rules & Dates

Registration Tips and Tools

Updates from the University Registrar

  • As of Spring 2016, the Office of the University Registrar will manage all registration-related issues for all Rowan students (including Rowan Global and GSBS) with the exception of medical students (RowanSOM and CMSRU).

  • We accept emailed forms and approvals: To better serve our students and faculty, we will accept scanned/emailed forms and emailed approval signatures when necessary. (Ideally, the student still downloads, completes, and scans the proper form and emails it for approvals, so that all information is clearly included in the email chain by the time the Registrar receives it for processing.)

  • Privacy and Email Information: Due to Federal regulations we are restricted from disclosing personal information to email accounts other than a Rowan Student or Faculty email account. If your inquiry requires a representative to view your Rowan records, please send an email through your Rowan email account in order to receive a detailed answer. (If you do not know your Rowan email account information, please visit http://www.rowan.edu/toolbox/ru_new/students/#email for students or http://www.rowan.edu/toolbox/ru_new/faculty_staff/#email for faculty/staff.)

  • Wait-listing for Courses at Capacity: Colleges have the ability to identify courses for which they want to implement wait-listing. When students register into a wait-listed course which has reached capacity, they may place themselves on wait-list. Email notification is sent to the student's Rowan account when an available opening is identified. As more students are added to the list, a new section may be created at the direction of the offering college or department. This capability will enable departments and colleges to better anticipate and plan for course schedule needs each term. For more information, email registrar@rowan.edu.
General Education and Rowan Experience courses can be found using the Section Tally and searching on Attribute

Registration Periods

Registration open dates: Registration opens for a term as outlined below and then remains open until the end of the regular Drop/Add period for the Part of Term in which the course appears.

  • Fall: usually in March (opens according to student level and classification)** (See Fall 2016 Registration Schedule for Undergraduate Student Classifications on this page.)
  • Winter: usually in October (opens for all students at one time)
  • Spring: usually in October (opens according to student level and classification)** (Spring 2017 Registration Schedule for Undergraduate Student Classifications coming soon.)
  • Summer: usually in February (opens for all students at one time)

Note about “Late-start” Courses: Most courses that fall within a term but begin after the start of the full term (“Late-start” courses) have registration open at the same time as the full term dates. Online adding and dropping for Late-start courses is usually possible during this time and up through the end of the Regular Drop/Add period for the full term. After that, registration usually remains open for a late-start course until the Regular Drop/Add period for the Part of Term in which the particular course appears; however, online adding and dropping is no longer possible, which is why a Late-start Registration Form is required for manual processing at that time. As long as registration is officially open, only the student signature is required, and both adding and dropping is still permitted.

Online Registration: Please remember any online registration activity takes place in Self Service (www.rowan.edu/selfservice) and is only possible between 7AM and 11PM each day and up until the end of the Regular Drop/Add period.

About “Part of Term:” Session or “Part of Term” is the 5th column in the Rowan Section Tally (http://banner.rowan.edu/reports/reports.pl?task=Section_Tally) and it shows the start and end dates of the session in which the course is placed. These dates determine your registration-related deadlines for the course.
