Dear Hendrix Students,
We understand that this is a stressful time and many
processes are changing in ways that make it difficult to keep up. We have
made some changes in the registration process for returning students that we
hope will make the process as clear as possible. At the same time, we are
trying to keep the process as much like it was done in the past because we know
you have registered before!
Please review this email carefully! There have been
process changes and extensions for deadlines to help given our transition to
online classes. A new one-page registration calendar is also attached.
As always, you can email the Registrar’s office with
questions. Someone will be in the office for the rest of this week to answer your telephone calls, but email is
the most reliable contact method going forward. Many staff members are
now, or soon will be, working from home
And finally: Graduating seniors can ignore this email!
Spring registration for the 2020-2021 academic year will
occur from April 1 through April 17, 2020. During the process
- you will go to your CampusWeb account and select courses you wish
- you will communicate
with your advisor to finalize course requests, bid for classes, and
- you will check CampusWeb for your schedule after
pre-registration on April 27; and
- you will work with your
advisor during the add/drop period if you want to change your
schedule or add courses to replace the ones you did not get. Your advisor will communicate with you about how
and when they will be available.
Schedule of Classes for 2020-2021 is
now available on line at Hendrix
College - Course Schedule. “Student Instructions for Online
Registration”, a step-by-step tutorial on how to register courses on line is
located at our website under http://www.hendrix.edu/academicaffairs/default.aspx?id=914
. Please go through the tutorial carefully before
registration. Please use your id and password to login to your
Campus Web account from the Hendrix home page or
directly from this link: https://www.hendrix.edu/campusweb/default.aspx. Do not forget to change the current
year and semester to "Fall 2020-2021" and then
to "Spring 2020-2021" below the tool bar after you log in.
One step of the registration process is “bidding” for
classes in a format similar to a silent auction. For example, if there
are 20 seats available for a class and 30 students bid for it, the 20 students
who bid the highest for the class are placed into it and the other 10 are shut
out. In cases where limits are not reached, the bid amounts become
irrelevant. The number of bid points you are given is equal to the number
of cumulative credits you have earned. You are encouraged to
allocate your points and select one alternate course for each pre-registered
course on paper prior to the advising meeting. If you have problems
allocating points or selecting alternate courses, please seek advice from your
advisor before or during the advising meeting.
During your advising meeting, your
advisor will submit online approval of your final course requests. After
that online approval is given, the bid point process becomes available to both
the advisor and student. Your advisor will inform you of his or her
expectations concerning who is to enter your bid points. Some advisors
may wish to continue working with you during your advising meeting to complete
bid point requests; others may give you the assignment of entering bid points
from your Campus Web account after your advising meeting is complete.
Instructions outlining the steps for a student to submit bid points are
contained in the student registration tutorial noted above. The deadline
for submitting or editing bid points is April 17,
which is also the final day of spring registration. To assist your bid
point decisions, the Registrar’s Office has sent an email to faculty listing the number of bid points needed last year to gain
admittance to oversubscribed courses.
The spring registration process is as follows:

on your Account

have any holds on your account. You will not be able to register for
