Refer Registration and General Education questions to The Registrar’s Office – email@example.com and 207-755-5949.
If the student needs the professor’s permission to register for the course (an override) for whatever reason, ask the students to politely email the professor and include in the email 1) their full name, 2) a brief description of why they need permission and 3) their student ID number (you may need to indicate that this is their 9-digit number used to access the Garnet Gateway – it’s early days!) Remind the student that even if the professor grants the “override,” that is permission to register for the course, the student must go into the Garnet Gateway again to register for the course.
Incoming students can register for 4 courses only during the summer; they may add-on in the fall; six courses needs Academic Standing Committee approval
There is no petitioning in summer registration for incoming students
For courses being offered, ask students to check the Garnet Gateway not the college catalog.
