Incoming Freshmen:

Your Fall 2014 schedule is now viewable!

To view your schedule, log into your KnowHope Plus account with your user ID and PIN. Then click “Registrar and Student Accounts”, then “Registration”, and then on “Printable (Term) Schedule”.

In the upper left corner, you’ll see the number of credits for which you’ve been registered. At the bottom left of your printable schedule, you'll find any classes meeting in the last half of the semester (these are labeled "B") as well as any classes without assigned times (for example, private music lessons--which will be scheduled through the Music Department after you come to campus).

If you have questions about some of the classes on your schedule, please be sure to review your resources - Frequently Asked Questions about Schedules and Common Courses & General Education Fulfillment

Wait List Notifications:

Wait List emails have been sent to student email addresses at 5:10pm on April 11, 2014. If you wait-listed yourself for a class, be sure to check your Hope email for the status. Please follow the instructions listed in the message.

If you missed your Registration Time and were not able to be added to a Wait List, you may still have the opportunity to add the class(es) later during the Drop/Add Period.

Drop/Add Period:

All class schedule changes need to be processed in-person at the Registrar's Office with:

  • Supporting emails or signatures from each professor, giving permission to drop or add each class
  • Advisor permission (unless you are only changing sections of a class)
