Degree Seeking Registrants – Semester and Summer session registration dates and times are made available on the Registrar’s webpage and the main page of WebAdvisor. Continuing students register online via WebAdvisor after having met with their advisors. Students registering for the first time at Holy Family and newly readmitted students register in-person at the Registrar’s Office during published office hours during the registration period designated for their status. Academic and Faculty Advisors assist students in course planning and selection, however, all students are responsible for observing the necessary prerequisites and corequisites as well as selecting courses necessary to fulfill concentration requirements in their proper sequence. Ordinarily, degree completion will be affected when/if students fail to enroll in regularly scheduled required courses in their degree programs. Information concerning registration can found on the Registrar’s webpage and the main page of WebAdvisor, both accessible from the University’s homepage, www.holyfamily.edu.
Non-Degree Seeking Registrants – Students visiting from another college or university or anyone taking a course for personal enrichment may go directly to the Registrar’s Office for relevant instructions regarding enrollment and registration.
Course Load – The normal course load for full-time students is from 15 to 18 semester hours, varying with the student’s particular curriculum and scholarship record. Approval to carry hours in excess of this load will be granted by the appropriate Dean only to those students whose scholastic record gives evidence of their ability to do superior work. The minimum academic load for full-time students is 12 semester hours. The current tuition per credit will be charged for credits exceeding 18 in number.
In Summer sessions, the maximum credit load for undergraduates is 6 credits per session. Approval to carry hours in excess of this load will be granted by the appropriate Dean only to those students whose scholastic record gives evidence of their ability to do superior work.
Auditing Courses – The Registrar authorizes all formal auditing of courses. The privilege of auditing classes is extended to students who may wish to benefit from certain courses without assuming responsibility for preparing assignments and completing examinations. The student is, however, expected to meet all other course requirements. Authorization to change from credit to audit or audit to credit status must be made within the first two weeks of the Fall or Spring semesters, or within the first week of a Summer Session. During Fall and Spring semesters, if the total number of credit hours per semester does not exceed 18, full-time students are entitled to audit courses without extra tuition. One-half of the regular credit fee is charged for part-time students who audit classes and for full-time students whose semester credit load exceeds 18 credits. Auditors are responsible to pay all fees normally associated with a given course.
Cross Registration Agreements for SEPCHE Institutions – Full-time undergraduate, matriculated students paying full-time tuition at any SEPCHE member institution may enroll for up to two undergraduate courses a year at any other SEPCHE member institution provided they have fulfilled any prerequisites stated, that there is space available in the course, and that the course or its equivalent is not given at the home institution in the same semester. Students must have completed at least one year as a full-time student at their home campus before taking courses through cross registration. Students may cross-register at the Registrar’s Office of their home institution.The following policies apply in those cases in which cross registration is completed.
