Reserved Seats

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.

Permission of Instructor (PI)

Courses that indicate PI (permission of instructor) cannot be added during registration without an override. You will need to contact the instructor of the course and have them enter an online override before your scheduled start time.


Read the course descriptions for prerequisites and corequisites. Courses with prerequisites listed in the course description will be checked by the system.

If your record does not list the AP score or the Kenyon class, you will be unable to enroll in the course via the web unless you ask the instructor to enter with an online override.

Transfer credit must be equated to a Kenyon course on your transcript to be used in this process.

When you receive an override from the instructor, this does not register you for the course, you MUST add the course during registration.


When entering CRN's for any labs with lectures listed as the corequisite, you must enter the lecture first then the lab.

Audit, Individual Study and Senior Honors 

  • These must be added during the semester.
  • Audits can be done on an enrollment change request form and turned in only during the first seven class days of each semester.
  • Forms for senior honors can be found in the Registrar's office or the Registrar's web page.
  • Individual studies can be found online and turned in only during the first seven class days. The form must be fully completed and have all required signatures.

Notice of Individual Student Responsibility

While faculty and staff stand ready to encourage and advise, the final responsibility for complying with College polices 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.
