Students who have filed an official planned program

Graduate students who have an official planned program of study approved and on file with the School of Graduate Studies prior to October 22 are not required to see their advisor and do not need an Alternate PIN (Personal Identification Number).

Students who have not yet filed an official planned program

Graduate students who have not yet filed a planned program of study by October 22 must follow these steps.

  1. You must see your advisor during the academic advisement period from Monday, October 22 through Friday, November 2. Please make sure you make your course selections for the spring as well as complete and submit an official planned program of study during your meeting. (Graduate policy state that the Planned Program must be submitted no later than having earned 16 credits but the sooner this is filed the better protection graduate students have for any changes made to the program.)

  2. It will be necessary to obtain an Alternate PIN from your advisor before you will be allowed to register. Please note that the Alternate PIN will only be available from your department advisors. New Alternate PINs are assigned each semester. Those provided for last fall 2018 registration will not work for this upcoming spring 2019 semester. (Note also that the registrar will not turn off the Alternate PIN Number requirement. Thus, students with no Planned Programs who wait to register late or after the spring semester may encounter delays if faculty advisors are not available to assist them.)

Before meeting with your academic advisor it may be helpful to:
  • Bring an unofficial planned program sheet with you. If you do not have one, please get one from your department or from the Graduate Office, Barnard 102.

  • Print a copy of your unofficial transcript from CentralPipeline/WebCentral-Banner Web. (Once logged in, click on the Registration/Records tab, then on Unofficial Transcript.)

  • Update your academic progress in the appropriate spaces on your unofficial planned program sheet.

  • Form initial decisions about the courses you would like to take for the upcoming semester. The Schedule of Courses is available by clicking here (available in mid October)
