Fall Priority Registration 2014

Priority Registration (for current students) April 21- May 9. You must open and read the BucksMail email with the subject line Fall 2014 Priority Registration for information specific to you. This was sent to the “…@live.bucks.edu” email account of students enrolled for Spring ‘14.

To register between April 21 and April 27, you must be enrolled for Spring 2014 courses and meet the conditions specified in the email referenced above.  Fall registration opens to all students on Monday, April 28.

You may register during this period if...

  • Your Registration Form is signed by an academic advisor or your advisor enters a web-registration advising code for you (mandatory only for full-time students).
  • You have the required number of completed credits on the day you attempt to register (see chart below).
  • You have done your Placement Testing (or have been granted waivers for it).
  • You have no overdue financial obligation to the College.

Academic Advising

Part-time students (enrolling for 11 or fewer credits in Fall 2014) are urged to seek advising but it is not mandatory.

Full-time students (those enrolling for 12 or more credits) need an advisor approval code to register (details: www.bucks.edu/advising) or they may submit their Registration Form or a note signed by their advisor at the time of their in-person registration.

You may:

  1. schedule an in-office advising appointment (many faculty post sign-up sheets on their office doors)
  2. visit the Newtown office of the Academic Department that offers your major to request an advising appointment.

In-Person Registration

  • Check seat availability on WebAdvisor; create or adjust your schedule accordingly.
  • Please be aware that the College no longer prints registration brochures.  Instead, use our new online Credit Course Offerings interactive web page.
  • Present your completed Registration Form. It must be signed by an advisor (or an advising code must be on your student record). NOTE: Your first day of eligibility for registration is based on the number of credits you've completed plus those now in progress. For your date, please see your recent BucksMail email.
  • After your registration is processed, we will return two copies to you. (The yellow copy is your BILL and should be submitted with your payment. Keep the pink copy for your records.)

During this period (April 21– May 9), payment will not be taken at registration. However, all previous balances must be paid before you register. For details, please see Payment below.


SPECIAL NOTE ON FINAL GRADES: Your Spring 2014 Final Grades will not be mailed to you unless you submit a signed request to the Admissions Office. You may view your grades online via WebAdvisor after May 26, 2014.
