    Course Schedule

    Each semester, you will receive a reminder to register for courses approximately 4 months before the start of each semester. Some things to keep in mind:

    1. Effective fall 2013, the School of Education has a policy that a course must have a minimum of 15 students in order to run; the past policy was 8 students. Please be sure to register early to secure your seat in the courses that you need. Exceptions may be made at the Dean's discretion.

    2. If a course is full, you may contact Ms. O'Brien (kobrien02@hamline.edu) to ask to be put on a waitlist. Please include the course #, name, CRN, and term.

    3. If you need to take a leave of absence from school or modify your course planner, be sure to contact your advisor as soon as possible to avoid delays in program completion. Your advisor will help you determine the quickest path toward program completion.
