Degree Program and Licensure Students
Register for master's and doctoral level classes on Piperline at www.hamline.edu/piperline.
Continuing Studies and Sampler Student
Registration is available by mail, fax, or in person in the Student Administrative Services office (East Hall 113). Publications are available listing available courses; however, the most current are always listed on Piperline. Early registration is recommended as classes may fill. However, students may register for classes up until the first day of class as long as the class is still open.
Special registrations such as independent studies, internships, field experiences, capstone, advanced practicum, personal assessment, and other individual projects require specific registration forms and approvals. The appropriate forms are available online or in the program offices. Prior to submitting a special registration, students should consult their advisor or a faculty member regarding the format of the project. Students approaching their capstone projects should meet with a faculty advisor for guidance well before the registration term begins. Most special registrations require the signature of the project advisor, and sometimes that of the program dean or director. The student is responsible for obtaining all necessary signatures before submitting the registration to Student Administrative Services.
Registrations for all students are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Registrations received from students with registration holds will not be processed until the hold (financial or administrative) is released. For degree- and licensure-seeking students, a $50 late fee is charged when registrations are received on or after the day the term begins. This fee will also be charged if a registration cannot be processed by that deadline because of a registration hold (administrative or financial).
Maximum Credit Loads
The maximum credit load allowed for all degree programs (except Graduate Education MAT) is eight semester credits per term, unless permission is received from program dean, director, or faculty advisor. The maximum credit load for Graduate Education MAT students is sixteen semester credits per term.
Enrolling after the Class Start
Instructor permission is required to add a course after the class has started. Appropriate forms to add/drop are available in Student Administrative Services (East Hall 113). MAEd learning communication students should contact the program coordinator.
Enrolling after the Class Ends
Instructor permission is required to add a course after it has ended. Registration requests received up to one year after a course has ended will be processed; later requests will be denied.
