New Student Registration Graduate College

Select Your Classes

Choosing courses that keep you on track with your degree requirements is easy with a little help from your Graduate Enrollment Counselor. Your counselor will use your personal email to send you suggestions for your first term.

Look forward to receiving these by the time registration becomes available for new students.

How many courses or credits should I register for?
St. Kate's courses vary from 1-4 credits.

  • 3 credits is the minimum to be considered for half-time financial aid.
  • 6 credits is the minimum to be considered a full-time student.

Can I deviate from the suggested courses?
Taking the courses your Graduate Enrollment Counselor suggests can help you avoid pitfalls along your degree completion path.

Many courses are not offered every semester and depending on your program some courses have strict sequencing requirements.

The Register for Classes page is divided into three boxes.

  • To confirm registration, click "submit."
  • You are registered once you see the status changed from "Pending" to "Registered" on the lower right.
  • You can check your schedule by reviewing the Schedule and Schedule Details tabs on the lower left corner.

Before dropping a course

  • Check with the Financial Aid Office so they can review your financial aid eligibility. They will determine what, if any, changes will need to be made if you make changes to your registration.
  • Check the academic calendar for drop deadlines
  • Consult with your advisor or program director to make sure the course you wish to drop won’t negatively impact your ability to stay on track or qualify for your program.
