Though working with the registrars of four independent institutions can feel complicated, we strongly encourage everyone to branch out and take courses across the consortium. The process is detailed below.
Please follow these guidelines and dates, regardless of registration windows at the individual campuses.
First week of April: Classes are posted.
April 11, 12 am : Opens to FT 3rd-years (including rising) and PT students who are slated to graduate Fall '22 or Spring '23
April 15, 12 am: Opens to all first-year students and students-at-large. All non-occupied seats will be released to any NEOMFA student on a first come, first served basis, following the procedures below.
October 1: Classes are posted no later than today.
October 1 to October 15: Priority registration period. During this time, five seats will be held for students from other campuses.
After October 15: All non-occupied seats will be released to any NEOMFA student on a first come, first served basis, following the procedures below.
A. After consulting the current list of courses, decide what classes you want.
B. For core NEOMFA classes, contact firstname.lastname@example.org during your assigned registration period. For electives and literature courses, contact each professor (see email address on course listing pages) or for courses at the University of Akron, the Campus Coordinator, to request a seat in their class.
Once you’ve secured a seat in the class, the professor (or Campus Coordinator) will refer you to your department’s Graduate Advisor or admin, who will instruct you on further enrollment procedures.
A. Fill out the cross-registration form and email it to your Campus Coordinator, who will send it on for the other appropriate signatures.
B. Once the form has been returned to your home department by the host university, your own department will add the course to your schedule.
If the course does not show up on your schedule after a few weeks, check with your department graduate advisor or MFA representative. Note that the form must go from your department to your graduate school, to the host university and back to your department—so give it some time!
