Registration for new students entering the College happens in multiple stages. New students register in June (fall entrants) or November (spring entrants) through ISIS, our Internet Student Information System. You will then have the opportunity to adjust your course registrations, as needed, once you arrive on campus.
In late May for fall entrants and October for spring entrants, the registrar will send you an email including the start and end dates of June and November registration, respectively. ISIS will not accept registrations before the start date or after the end date but you may register during any of the weeks between. If registering from afar, note that ISIS is not available between 4am and 6am EST daily, for system maintenance.
In order to access ISIS and register for classes, you must log on to ISIS by using your 'user name/email ID' and 'password'. This is the same username and password you have been using during the admission process. If you are in need of assistance regarding your user name/email ID, please contact the registrar's office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit the appropriate online course selection advice prior to beginning the registration process:
- First-Year Students
- Foreign Fellows
- Frances Perkins
- International Exchange
- International Guest
Detailed registration instructions are available. It is recommended that you read them in the following order:
1. Search for Classes
2. Worksheet - Grid to help plan your schedule
3. Preparing for Registration
4. Register or Add/Drop
If you have questions regarding the use of the online registration system, please call the Office of the Registrar, 413-538-2025, or email the registrar. If you are unable to pre-register via ISIS, please do not panic. Send your course selections to the Office of the Registrar and staff will work with you on an individual basis.
