How to Register for Classes and Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I REGISTER FOR CLASSES?
Check your e-mail for your appointment time. You will be able to register at your appointed day and time once you receive online clearance from your advisor.
Registration times are randomly assigned within each class level.*
*Class level is determined by student's planned graduation year.
REGISTRATION APPOINTMENTS CANNOT BE CHANGED.
YOU MAY NOT REGISTER PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTED TIME—NO EXCEPTIONS.
Make an appointment with your adviser during advising days each semester.
- 1. Check the online 5-College Course Schedule via MyCampus2 Portal.
- 2. Print and take the Registration Form to your adviser and select courses. Your adviser must either sign your registration form or clear you to register online.
- 3. If you are not cleared for online registration and will be registering in person, we suggest having several adviser-approved, alternate courses listed on your Registration Form in case some of your first choices are not available.
- 4. Check for holds via your Portal and clear them with the appropriate office BEFORE registering. You will not be able to pre-register if you have outstanding holds.
- ATTENTION first semester Juniors: You are required to declare a major prior to pre-registration. You will not be permitted to pre-register until you have submitted your Major Declaration Form.
IN PERSON REGISTRATION
Bring your registration form signed by your adviser, and any permission slips or Independent Study forms you have.
Some courses will have limited enrollment and/or course fees. If you decide not to remain in a course with a designated fee, you must formally drop the course in the Registrar's Office or online by the last day to drop (listed on the academic calendar) to avoid billing for such fees.
CHANGING YOUR SCHEDULE
If you are cleared to register online you may add and drop courses until the add/drop deadline. If you are not cleared online an Add/Drop Form must be signed by your adviser and submitted to the Registrar's Office. The last days to add and drop can be found on the academic calendar. YOU (the student) must submit an Add/Drop Form or drop the course online in order for a course to be removed from your official course schedule.

Do I really need my adviser’s approval?
Yes! Your adviser must approve your courses, and his/her signature must be on your registration form or your adviser may clear you to register online. You should get your adviser's approval any time you make a change to your schedule (adding or dropping a class).
What if my adviser is on sabbatical?
You should have been assigned a temporary adviser. If you have not been assigned a temporary adviser please contact the Dean of Faculty's Office for assistance.
How do I get permission to be in a class that requires written permission?
You may request instructor permission via the portal. Look for the Permission to Enroll link. If you do not receive online permission you must submit a Permission Form signed by the instructor. A verbal agreement is not acceptable. E-mail permission is acceptable, however, please do not ask the instructor to email their permission to the Registrar's Office. The Registrar's Office does not collect faculty permission for students. The instructor may email you, and you may then submit the printed email as written permission.
How do I find out if a course has prerequisites?
Check the course details on the online 5-College Schedule. If you have questions about the prerequisites, please contact the instructor of the course or the appropriate field group.
If I’m going abroad next semester, do I still need to pre-register?
No, pre-registration is only for students who are continuing at Pitzer for the coming semester. You should be in contact with the Study Abroad Office regarding the details of your program.
How do I find out if I have a registration HOLD and what do I do about it?
Check your MyCampus Portal to see if you have a hold. If you do, follow up with the office that placed the hold. You will not be permitted to register until your hold has been cleared.
How do I register for an Independent Study?
Independent Study Forms are available at the Registrar's Office and online. You will need to submit a detailed description and a reading list. The Registrar's Office collects the Independent Study Forms and forwards them on to the Curriculum Committee for review.
How do I register for a Senior Thesis?
Pick up a Senior Thesis Registration Form at the Registrar’s Office. The course will be added to your schedule after Pre-Registration.
Where can I get the forms mentioned above?
