Choosing Courses: Requirements
When choosing courses to take, undergraduate students should keep in mind the following types of requirements: core curriculum requirements, program (major/minor) requirements, and general degree/graduation requirements.
The liberal arts core curriculum at Rocky Mountain College includes courses in writing mathematics, communication, fine arts, humanities social science, and natural science.
Core curriculum requirements are here: core curriculum requirements
Advising worksheets are available here: advising worksheet
Program (Major/Minor) Requirements
Program requirements are the requirements necessary to earn a specific major or minor. There must be at least 15 unique credits between majors, concentrations, and minors earned by any student.
See course catalog directory for links to program requirements.
General Graduation Requirements
In addition to the core curriculum and program requirements, students are required to complete general graduation requirements which can be found here: Graduation Requirements
Students may use the blank graduation plan available in advising resources to work with their academic advisor to project the sequence of courses they should take in order to graduate.
Registering for Courses
Advising and Advisors
Each student is assigned a faculty member who serves as an academic advisor. Students may be assigned secondary advisors. Students are ultimately responsible for ensuring sufficient academic progress towards graduation. Students are expected to meet with their academic advisor regularly but must meet with their advisors before registering for courses.
When to Register
Newly admitted students will register for the first time through Admissions.
The opening of registration is listed on the College’s academic calendar. Students who have earned at least 90 credits as of the end of the previous semester register on the first day, 60 credits on the second day, 30 credits on the third day. If you encounter difficulties during the registration process, please contact student records.
Your registration is not complete unless you complete validation and pay your tuition and fees with Student Accounts by the payment deadline. Note: all students must validate, even if aid and scholarships cover all their fees.
Use Add/Drop to Change Your Schedule
- Students can change their schedules through the deadlines noted in the academic calendar (link to academic calendar)
- After the deadline to add/drop, you will not be able to add a course, and any course you drop will be considered a withdrawal from the course and will show up on your transcript with a grade of "W."
- To withdraw from a course with a "W," complete an add/drop slip. Indicate your last day of attendance in that course on the form. Note: Do not complete the online academic withdrawal form unless you want to drop all of your current class schedule and leave the College before the end of term.
