If you will not have access to a computer during your allotted time, please follow this link to access the Alternate Course Request Form. This should be emailed to Phaedra Fawcett, email@example.com by noon on the day preceding your first registration time. If you submit the alternate course request form and then proceed to web register, we will not attempt to enter your courses from your form and it will be shredded.
NOTE: Be sure that you use the test database to check for any errors in advance of submitting this form. We will enter your requests at the beginning of registration. If there are classes you didn’t get, please don’t email us. You should ask a proxy to add it during drop/add or you can add it during the drop/add period during the first seven class days of the semester.
Juniors (class of 2017)- Thursday, November 12 at 11:15 from until Friday, November 13 at 4:30 pm
BEFORE your registration time period opens, please go to the web registration test environment. See instructions here.
For the latest course information, see the Schedule of Courses.
Obtain your Alternate PIN: You must contact your advisor to discuss your schedule. Once you have done so, your advisor will give you an alternate PIN to gain access to the registration page. Your advisor can refuse to give you the alternate PIN if you have not discussed your schedule prior to your registration period.
LOGGING IN FROM OFF CAMPUS
You will need to go through remote.kenyon.edu so you can register through Personal Access Pages.
It is imperative that you attempt to log in to your personal access pages before the registration period begins to be sure that you are able to access them from abroad. You should get the error that "you are not permitted to register at this time" when you test your log in. If you are experiencing difficulty logging in or have forgotten your password, contact helpline at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740.427.5700.
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 beginning the first day of the semester.
*As a courtesy, please don't fill your schedule with courses just to have a full schedule. You can add and drop classes at the beginning of the semester. It is fine to not have a full schedule at this point.
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.
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.
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, choose 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.)
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 using the OCS override form. Plan ahead: this needs to be completed at least 24 hours before your class is allowed to register. YOU MUST add the course during registration.
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 contact the instructor of the course and have them enter an override before your designated time period begins by using the OCS override form.
Transfer credit does not get checked in this process unless we have equated a transfer course to a Kenyon course on your transcript.
Enter the CRN's for any labs with lectures listed as the corequisite 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:
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 on the Registrar's web page. Individual studies can only be turned in during the first seven class days and must have an attached plan and the required signatures.
To View your completed schedule:
Once you log on to your Personal Access Page, go to Menu - Student Services - Registration. Select the correct term, then Detailed Student Schedule.
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.
