For the latest course information, see the Schedule of Courses.
While faculty and staff stand ready to encourage and advise, the final responsibility for complying with College policies and procedures as well as for meeting degree requirements rests with the individual student. Students have access to all of the College policies in the Course Catalog and various enrollment instructions and are held accountable for their content.
Registration will take place through Personal Access Pages.
You MUST meet with your faculty advisor to obtain your Alternate PIN, which is printed on a card, to gain access to the registration page. Your advisor can refuse to give you the alternate PIN if you have not met with him or her prior to your registration period.
The system will only allow students to enroll in 2.25 units (four 0.50 unit courses plus 0.25 units) of credit via web registration. Any additional labs, music lessons/ensembles, PHSD or dance classes will need to be added during the drop/add period. Fifth 0.50 unit classes will need to be added during the first 7 class days.
*As a courtesy, please don't fill your schedule with courses just to have a full schedule. There is an add/drop period following everyone's registration period. You can add and drop classes at that point and again at the beginning of the semester. It is fine to not have a full schedule at this point.
Do not Refresh your browser while it appears to be working. Doing so will NOT make the system work faster. Instead, it taxes the system further.
Registration consists of entering CRN's into boxes and then attempting to register for those courses. Use the searchable schedule to bookmark your courses. Print your list of courses, or have your list available on-line, so that you have the choices handy when logging on to register at your appointed time. You will need to enter the CRN for each course to register.
The classes will be filling up as the classes before yours register. Check the reserved seats and the enrollments. This will help you prioritize your classes.
If there is one particular class that you MUST take this coming semester, contact the instructor to enter an override by going to faculty override instructions. This should be done at least 24 hours before your class is allowed to register. This does not register you for the course. YOU MUST still add the course during registration.
In an effort to keep a particular balance of students in a class, some faculty choose to reserve seats by class. These courses should be considered a priority when registering.
Courses that indicate PI (permission of the instructor) cannot be added during web registration without an override. If you need override permission for web registration, you will need to contact the instructor of the course and have them enter an override before your designated time period begins by going to: faculty override instructions. Plan ahead: this needs to be completed at least 24 hours before your class is allowed to register.
Read the course descriptions for prerequisites and corequisites.
Courses with prerequisites listed in the course description (see the Searchable Schedule of Courses) will be checked by the system (excluding MATH and PHYS).
If your record does not list the AP score or the Kenyon class listed, you will be unable to enroll in the course via the web unless you ask the instructor to provide the Registrar's Office with an override by going to: faculty override instructions.
Transfer credit does not get checked in this process unless we have equated a transfer course to a Kenyon course on your transcript.
When you receive an override from the instructor, this does not register you for the course, you MUST add the course during registration.
Enter the CRN's for any labs with lectures listed as the co-requisite AT THE SAME TIME on web registration, otherwise the system will not register you for the lab.
You can see which courses have a wait list option on the searchable schedule and the schedule of courses by department. If a course closes and a wait list is available for that course:
The schedule of courses will have a column that indicates which courses are enabled for wait listing, with the word "WAIT" in the column (to the left of the instructor name). When one of these wait list enabled courses reaches the enrollment limit, the next student who attempts to add the course will be informed that the course enrollment is filled and will be asked whether they would like to wait list. If you says yes, your name will be added to the list.
You cannot sign up for these during web registration. Audits can be done on an enrollment change form during the first seven class days of each semester. Forms for individual study and senior honors can be found in the Registrar's office or the Registrar's web page. Individual studies can only be turned in during the first seven class days and must have a completed plan and the required signatures.
DO NOT USE THE BACK BUTTON ON YOUR BROWSER. You should use "Return to Menu" or "Site Map" to navigate through the pages. If you use your back button during registration it will cause an error message to appear ("Your changes have already been submitted"). If this occurs, click ok and then click on site map located at the top right of the page. Under student, click - registration and begin again.
Enter your Kenyon ID: S2xxxxx ("S" must be UPPERCASE)
Enter your PIN: If you have forgotten your PIN, click on Forgot PIN. If you have disabled your account, call Helpline at 5700. (DO NOT enter your alternate PIN here, you will do that later.)
