We hope your semester is going well! Course registration for the Spring 2019 semester is almost here.

Registration Instructions Have Changed

Please note that our registration instructions have changed. On the morning of registration, students should navigate to register.emerson.edu to access their Add/Drop Classes page directly. Additionally, registration now requires Duo Two-Factor authentication.

Preparing for Registration

To prepare for registration, be sure to:

  • Review the course listings, available in eCommon. Pay special attention to registration restrictions and prerequisites. Watch for courses that require special approval from a specific department or coordinator to register.
  • Read the full instructions.
  • Know your registration time.
  • Meet with your advisor. Many students need a PIN from their advisor to register. Check the instructions to see if you need a PIN.
  • Review your degree audit.

Registration Tips


Did you know you can have registration permissions applied before your registration time? If you’re going to need permission for a course, check the permissions instructions and get it in advance.


Check eCommon to see if you have any holds and resolve them before registration. 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

Monday, November 19 is the last day to withdraw from a course. In order to withdraw from a course, you must review Emerson’s withdrawal policy and submit a completed withdrawal form to the Registrar’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on November 19. Our office is located on the 4th floor of 180 Tremont St (Ansin).

Midterm Grades

Midterm grades for undergraduates will be viewable October 29 on eCommon. Use this opportunity to see if you have a C- or below in any of your courses and respond accordingly.

If you receive a midterm grade, we encourage you to contact your professor or advisor to determine the best course of action.
