        Students complete pre-registration for spring 2012. Students will need your online approval to complete their
registration process.

If you have any issues during pre-registration, use the Report Problems link on the Registrar’s web page which can be
found on the online registration page. We will be monitoring and responding to problems as they are received. Please
see known problems for some information on items already documented and addressed.

See Online Registration Calendar for more detailed information.

You should review the documentation regarding online registration on the Registrar’s web page under

Students will be asked to create their preferred course schedule prior to their advising meeting. They are expected to
meet with their advisor in person. Once you agree on a schedule, you must give your online approval so that the student
may finalize their schedule during pre-registration. Remember that after meeting with you, the student must submit
their approved courses via ACDATA to be officially enrolled.

       *We have been asked by the other 4 colleges to send 5-college enrollments in class order as listed above. We are
       setting our pre-registration appointment days and times to give our students the best advantage in the 5-college
       system. These times are not reflective of any priority at Amherst. Encourage your advisees to get their 5-college
       registrations completed as early as possible. Be sure they have all co-requisites listed on their forms and remind
       students that there is a 5-college process in addition to placing the place-holder course in ACDATA. Those
       instructions can be found here:

Helpful Hints:
    Students must have online instructor approval if they are planning to enroll in an instructor permission required
    Students should be sure to include all co-requisites of a course on their preferred course lists.
    Be sure to check pre-requisites when advising, the system is not yet checking pre-requisites, we are working on
        that feature for a future date.
    You have access to run the anomaly report via ACDATA. The CEP has requested that this report be sent
        following pre-registration.
