Get ready for course registration
Beginning in June, you will register online for two of your first-semester courses. One of these must be a freshman seminar. The second is any other entry-level course of interest to you. You may register for only one first-year seminar.
Course descriptions are available on the online college catalog.
To register, you must have activated your Connecticut College email address and password, which will be provided to you in June, 2014. Call the IT Service Desk at 860-439-4357 if you do not receive your email address and password.
If you are a Science Leader, please see Science Leader class registration instructions.
During Orientation, you will meet with your faculty adviser to discuss your course of study. You'll register for your other two first-semester courses in August.

Complete the Designing Your Education form in the Enrollment Guide
This questionnaire gets you thinking about the courses you’d like to take during your four years at Connecticut College using the College’s online course catalog. The catalog provides descriptions for every course that the College offer, although not all courses are offered every semester. The course schedule lists the courses available for a specific semester, along with times and locations. The Fall 2014 Condensed Course Schedule, available at a later date, lists courses available to incoming freshmen.
Select your courses
View the Fall 2014 Condensed Course Schedule, available during the summer, and together with your answers to the Interests and Aspirations form, select several freshman seminars and several other entry-level courses. Choosing extra courses will provide you with backup selections in case your first choices are full. Freshman seminars begin with the department code FYS; register for one of these. Your second course can be any other entry-level course which may be a course at the 200-level with no prerequisite. Be sure your list includes the five-digit CRN (Course Registration Number) for each course, since you’ll need the CRN to register. The CRN is listed in the far left column on the condensed course schedule. Be sure your freshman seminar and other entry-level course do not overlap in time and day.
Residential first-year seminars
At least half of the first-year seminars are held in the common rooms of residence halls. Students who choose seminars that meet in common rooms will be placed in the same house, but not necessarily in the same room, with other students in the class. These seminars are noted on the fall condensed course schedule. Students enrolled in a residential freshman seminar may not also live in specialty housing. Registering for a residential freshman seminar will void requests for specialty housing.
