We Are Moving!

Starting March 5, the Registrar’s Office and the Academic Advising Office are both moving to the 4th floor of Ansin.

Course Listings

Summer course listings are now available on eCommon. Fall listings will be available March 9.

Be sure to click course titles to review restrictions and prerequisites when viewing courses!

Fall Registration

Fall registration begins on March 26. To prepare, be sure to:

  • Determine your registration time.
  • Review the course listings.
  • If needed, review our instructions on how to register.
  • Review your Degree Audit.
  • Meet with your advisor and, if necessary, obtain your registration PIN. Check the instructions to determine if you need one.

Summer Registration

Summer registration opens on eCommon at 9:00 a.m. the Monday after spring break, March 12, for all students.

Summer tuition is due April 16. Students with outstanding summer balances will be automatically dropped from their courses. Students registering on or after April 16 must pay their balance by 11:59 pm or they will be automatically dropped.

Registration Tips and Tricks


If you’re going to need online permission to register for a course, get them in advance! This includes getting permission to register for multiple topics courses with same subject and course number (e.g. IN370-01 and IN370-02).


Check eCommon to make sure you don’t have any holds. Many offices that remove holds will not be open at 7:00 a.m. If you wait until your registration time to contact them, those offices will not be available to assist you.

Last Day to Withdraw

Tuesday, April 17 is the last day to withdraw from a course or from the college.

If you need to withdraw from a course, review Emerson’s course withdrawal policy and submit a completed Course Withdrawal Form to the Registrar’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on April 17.

Fall Waitlist Deadline

You will not be able to join a fall waitlist after Wednesday, May 2. Waitlists will continue to function through August 30, the Friday before classes begin.

Midterm Grades

Midterm grades will be viewable for undergraduate students on eCommon on Wednesday, March 21. If you receive a midterm grade, we strongly encourage you to contact your professor or advisor to determine the best course of action.
