I can't register because I have a hold. What should I do?

There are 3 types of holds that prevent you from registering:

  • ADV Advising Hold: See your advisor who will have the hold lifted
  • SA Student Accounts: Visit the Student Accounts office to resolve your bill or contact them via email at [email protected] or by phone at (315) 279-5659

How can I change my major or add a minor?

Fill out an Academic Program Change form located on the Registrar's website and submit the completed form to the Registrar's Office.

How many credits do I need to be considered a full time student?

A student needs 12 credits to be considered a full time undergraduate. Full time status is required for Financial Aid.

What is the difference between Add/Drop/Withdraw a course?

For information regarding Add/Drop/Withdraw a course can be found on the Registration and Registration Changes page in the Keuka College Record. 

  • Add a course: Students may add courses through their KC Self Service until the 6th day of class for 14-week courses and the third day of class for 7-week courses. 
  • Drop a course: Students can drop a course through their KC Self Service until the 6th day of class for 14-week courses and the third day of class for 7-week courses without a "W" on a transcript. 
  • Withdraw from a course: Students may withdraw from a course after the add/drop but before 50% of the class has been completed. Students will receive a "W" on their transcript for a course. This will not affect their GPA. 

For current Add/Drop/Withdraw dates, please refer to the Academic Calendar.

How do I know what classes I need to register for?

To see what courses you still need to complete, please go to: KC Portal > KC Self-Service > Student Planning > My Progress. Additionally, we encourage you to contact your faculty advisor to talk about student planning.

How long is each Field Period® experience?

Field Period® is a 140-hour course. Students are required to complete at least 120 on-site hours towards each Field Period® experience and an additional 20-hours will be dedicated to the reflective assignments. Occupational Science students divide their Field Period® courses in half and therefore they complete at least 60-hours in two different settings for each three-credit Field Period®.

What should I do with my loan deferment forms?

Fill out the student portion and bring the form to the Registrar's Office. We will fill out the rest and send it on as requested.

Are Field Period® experiences worth academic credit?

Each Field Period® course—which consists of the experience and reflective assignments—is worth three academic credits.  Students should review their Program Evaluations to understand which Field Period® course requirements they must complete for their major. Field Period® courses are graded as pass/fail. A passing Field Period® course will should up as an "S" for "satisfactory" on a student's transcript.

How is my registration day determined?

On campus students day of registration is determined by your class level (cumulative credits, not including what is in progress) and athletic status.

  • Day 1: Athletes and Seniors  (85 credits and above)
  • Day 2: Juniors (55-84 credits)
  • Day 3: Sophomores (26-54 credits)
  • Day 4: Freshmen (25 credits and below)
How can I return to Keuka after previously withdrawing?

Students who wish to resume coursework at Keuka College should review Former Students Returning to Keuka College page in the Keuka College Record. All applications will be reviewed by the Keuka College Office of Admissions as well as the Office of the Registrar, if necessary.

When Does Field Period® happen?

About 70% of Keuka College students complete their Field Period® requirements during the January term while the remaining 30% complete them during the summer. In rare circumstances, special permission may be granted for a student to complete one during the fall or spring semester.

How often should I review my program evaluation?

You should review your program evaluation at least once per term, to make sure you are on track!
