After your first semester, you can register for classes online. To officially enroll in classes each semester, you are required to register for your schedule well in advance.
Normally, you should plan to take between 12 and 17 semester hours (3-5 courses) during the fall and/or spring terms. Students should average 15.5 credits per term to graduate in 8 semesters. To prepare for registration, we suggest that you meet with an academic advisor at least once each semester.

Registering for off-campus programs
If you have submitted Calvin's preliminary application for off-campus study, and have been accepted into an off-campus program, you will automatically be registered for your courses. Questions should be directed to Rachel Cush.
