Students Entering Fall 2013

The Registrar’s Office joins others in welcoming you to Bates. We are here to assist you in registering for courses and preparing for fall semester.

Bates students enjoy 24-hour online access to their records through a secure Bates web site called the Garnet Gateway. This summer you will use the Garnet Gateway to register for your fall courses. There are three steps to registration as detailed in the schedule below:

Registration Schedule

Registration I:  July 15 at 10:00 am (EDT) — July 19 at 4:00pm (EDT)
Registration I: Enter Your Courses
(Register any time during this period for 3 courses and a FYS)

Registration II: July 20 – 21
Registration II: Review Randomization Results, Plan Schedule, Readjust
Registration closes on the 19th at 4:00pm, we’ll then run a process on any limited courses that were oversubscribed in Phase I. For each course, the process fills the course by randomly selecting students from the list of all those who indicated a preference for that course in Phase I, up to the limit of the course.

Registration III:  July 22 at 10:00 am (EDT) — July 26 at 11:59pm (EDT)
Registration III : Adjust your schedule (Add/Drop)
Registration re-opens and students check their schedule. Students add and drop courses on first come, first serve basis during this phase.

Students should read the registration overview. The FAQ’s is packed with information. Please contact us with any questions.

We look forward to working with you as you join the Bates College community!
