Full-Time Registration

A student is considered a full-time student when he or she is registered for 12 or more credit hours.

All full-time students must meet with an advisor as part of the registration process to assure proper course selection for your degree, and that all prerequisites have been met. At your advisement appointment you and your advisor will select the courses you wish to be registered for, and those courses will be added to your schedule.

If the prerequisites to a course(s) have not been met; and you still wish to register for the course(s), an Instructor’s Permission Card must be completed and returned to the Registrar’s Office.

Part-Time Registration

A student is considered a part-time student when he or she is registered for 11.99 or less credit hours.

Part-time students are not required to meet with an advisor; however, it is recommended. As a part-time student, you may register in person at any Jamestown Community College site, by mail, fax, or through an advisor. If the prerequisites to a course(s) have not been met, and you still wish to register for the course(s), an Instructor’s Permission Card must be completed and returned to the Registrar’s Office.

All part-time students are required to complete the Registration Forms contained in the master schedules.

Independent Studies

After selecting a subject and securing an instructor, students wishing to take a course via “independent study” must obtain an Independent Study Form from the administrative assistant of the division that houses the course discipline.

Schedule Adjustments

Fall and spring schedule adjustments may take place through the end of the first week of courses. Summer schedule adjustments may take place through the end of the second day of instruction. Students may drop or add courses themselves, via Banner, up until the end of the second day of courses. Advisors may drop or add courses for students until the end of the first week of courses. Once a course has met twice an Instructor’s Permission Card must be completed by the instructor, and returned to the Registrar’s Office in order to be registered for the course(s).

For non-traditional course(s) please contact your advisor, or e-mail the Registrar’s Office regarding schedule adjustment information.

Withdrawing From a Course(s)
