Instructions & Tips  

See your advisor early and be prepared. Before your appointment with your advisor:

  • Review your degree audit at Degree Works tab at 
  • Review the catalog and read the specific requirements which must be completed within your major  and within the Core.
  • Review the class schedule and prepare a preliminary semester schedule. Be sure to “shop” from the requirements listed on your degree audit.
  • Use the Look Ahead feature on DegreeWorks to see if a course will cover a requirement.
  • Have your worksheet ready, with all CRN numbers.

During your appointment:

  • Review your career and academic goals.
  • Develop or amend your four-year plan.
  • Discuss the specific or general requirements of your major and/or Core with your advisor.
  • At the end of your appointment, verify that your advisor has enabled you for registration.


Should you decide that you wish to have a fully virtual schedule in Spring, discuss this with your advisor. See next paragraph for more information.


Students who wish to have a fully virtual schedule for Spring 2021 should discuss this choice with their academic advisor and must declare their intention for such a schedule by completing the “Fully Virtual Form” by the end of the registration period – Friday, November 20, 2020.  (this form can be found at under Student Tab/Student Resources/Forms).  You must fill out the form and submit it to the Registrar’s Office at no later than November 20th.

Students must use the Virtual Course Form for any 900 section courses in their proposed fully virtual schedule.  The instructor(s) must approve these course requests and forward them to the Dean/Chairperson for approval. The Dean/Chairperson will then send the approved forms to the Registrar’s Office by Friday, November 20, 2020.


Request to take a Blended Synchronous course (section 900 series) virtually.

Students who wish to complete a Blended Synchronous course (900 section series section number) virtually must complete the “Virtual Course Form” during the registration period. The student must discuss this option with the course instructor. The instructor must approve the virtual study and then send the form to the Dean/Chairperson for approval. The Dean/Chairperson will then send the form to the Registrar confirming the virtual attendance.  (this form can be found at under Student Tab/Student Resources/Forms).


After your appointment:

Check to make sure your advising hold has been removed and that you have no other holds (i.e. financial) on your account. Go to the Student Tab in myMarist and click on Student Records and then View Holds.  If you have any holds on your account, the system will NOT allow you to sign-in and register.

When registering:

  • Have your worksheet ready, with all CRN numbers.
  • Sign on myMarist and follow the registration instructions.
  • Review your schedule CAREFULLY for any errors. Pay special attention to course section numbers.

Keep the following points in mind as you prepare to register for courses:

  • You can only register for one section of the same course in a single semester. The computer will reject a second section of the same class.
  • Courses taught entirely on ground, in the campus classrooms, have section numbers 100-299.
  • Section numbers from 180 to 190 are offered at locations abroad.
  • Section numbers in the 700's are taught online, those in the 740 range are reserved for adult students. 
  •  Courses with a section number in the 800's are remote courses, taught online and the professor & students meet at their scheduled days & times but the lecture is broadcast livestream and the students are watching it livestream.
  • More information on course offerings and instructional methods are explained in this attachment     
  • If you are taking a Physical Education course, be certain to leave plenty of time in your schedule for cooling down, showering and/or getting across campus to your next class from the McCann Center.  
  • Try to spread class-meeting days throughout the week to avoid fatigue and an overload of preparations for any given class day.
  • The normal full-time student carries from 12 to 16 credits per semester. Your full-time tuition charge covers this range of credits. You may attempt to take more than 16 credits in a given semester if you have discussed with your advisor. If you wish to enroll in more than 18 credits in a given semester, you must also have permission from The Center for Advising and Academic Services, you can contact them at Be advised that you will be charged by the credit hour for every credit over 16.
  • If you are closed out of a class or if you decide to change your schedule, you may do so during the add/drop period during the first week of classes in each semester.
  • Pay close attention to published deadlines to avoid serious academic and financial penalties. Marist will make every effort to remind you of the important dates and deadlines, but in the end, it is your responsibility to know the deadlines and to meet them

How do I find my total earned credit hours?

Total earned hours are the total credit hours you have earned and accumulated at the end of the past Summer term. Your total earned credit hours can be found at:

  • Sign on to myMarist and enter your User name and Password
  • Click on the Student tab at the top of the page

  • Click on Registration
  • Click on Registration Status
  • Click on Select Term (e.g. Summer 2020)
  • To find your total earned credit hours, add institutional and transfer hours together.

How many credits should I register for?

To be considered full-time during the regular academic year (fall and spring semesters), students must register for a minimum of 12 credit hours. For most full-time students, the recommended academic load per semester is 15 credit hours so that they can reach the graduation requirement of 120 credits during the course of a four-year period -- the typical undergraduate experience. During the academic year, a student may elect to attempt a maximum of 18 credit hours each semester, but such a heavy load is not recommended. Students are advised to leave themselves enough time to prepare adequately for all of their courses and to engage in other activities on campus. Each credit taken over sixteen per semester is charged an additional fee at a per-credit-hour rate. To register for more than 18 hours in a single semester, a student must obtain the permission from The Center for Advising and Academic Services at 

The maximum number of credits for which a student may register during the January intersession is three; during the summer, a student may register for a maximum total of nine credits distributed over all Marist summer sessions. Exceptions can be made by the Center for Advising and Academic Services.

How do I find out more about the Pathway in the Marist Core?

Please visit our pages about the Marist Core and Pathways to learn more information.

Is it important to be full time?

If you are NOT a part-time student and your schedule does not add up to at least twelve credits, be sure to see your advisor immediately so that he/she can help you add courses necessary to bring you up to full-time status. You must be full-time to qualify for most types of financial aid and for housing. You may be removed from housing if you do not meet the enrollment requirements. It is also important to be full-time for billing purposes.

If you need to add course-work to round out your schedule or if you wish to drop a course, you should review your audit, make additional selections, and see your advisor for review.

What if I don't remember my sign on or password?
