Registration for continuing students occurs for each of the three academic semesters during the specific dates published and made available to students in the Leopard Connection (LConnect) portal. Course offerings, registration instructions, and course selection sheets are published on LConnect. Students will be able to register for courses online as long as there are no holds on their account, all prerequisites and co-requisites have been met, and the courses have available seats. Freshmen day students and all students on probation are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to registration. For courses that require written permission, a Drop/Add form is available in the Student Service Center.
Registration for newly accepted students occurs during the summer prior to the student’s matriculation in the fall semester. LConnect accounts are created for new students prior to arrival. The Registrar sends e-mail notices and invitations to incoming freshmen who then register for their courses online. Incoming transfer students are registered by their academic department heads and the Registrar prior to their arrival based on awarded transfer credit to best fulfill their curricular requirements.
Colleges of the Fenway
Wentworth is a member of the Colleges of the Fenway (COF) - an association of six Fenway area institutions that also includes:
- Emmanuel College
- Massachusetts College of Art & Design
- Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences
- Simmons College
- Wheelock College
Students who want to cross-register for a course through the COF should collect a COF cross registration form in the Student Service Center and return it with the required signatures by the published date. Students may cross- register for up to two COF courses in a given semester. Course offerings and other information are published online at www.colleges-fenway.org; this link is available through LConnect. If a COF course is expected to fulfill a Wentworth degree requirement (other than a general elective), the approval of the appropriate academic department head and curriculum department head/the Dean of Lifelong Learning is required on the cross-registration form; the substitution is indicated directly on the COF form. Students who cross-register must follow the academic policies and procedures of the host institution for that course, including academic honesty and adherence to the host institution’s academic calendar. Discipline issues will be addressed by the student’s home institution. Grades received in COF courses will be computed in the cumulative grade point average in accordance with the Wentworth grading system. Pass (P) grades are not accepted at Wentworth; students may not be allowed to register for courses that are graded on a Pass/Fail basis.
Day or Colleges of the Fenway (COF) students taking courses at The Arioch Center
At the discretion of the Dean of Lifelong Learning, seats in certain courses in The Arioch Center may be made available to undergraduate Day students approximately one week prior to the start of classes. Once they have been made available, Day students may register online via LConnect if they have met the course prerequisites. If seats are made available, an announcement will be sent to Day students on LConnect.
Colleges of the Fenway (COF) students who want to cross-register for a course at The Arioch Center should collect a COF cross-registration form in the Student Service Center and obtain the required signatures from their home institution and the Dean of Lifelong Learning. COF students must submit this signed form by the appropriate date.
Students who are approved to take courses at The Arioch Center are waitlisted until the last day prior to the start of classes for that given semester.
