How do I register for an internship?Internships are set up using an online form in Handshake. Information is available from the Career Development Office located on the second floor of Founders Hall.

How do I register for a CBE (credit by exam)?Credit by Exam is used when there is an overlap of two courses in the same term, or if the course is not regularly offered but is a catalog course. Students use the CBE form on the Registrar's Office website or in the Registrar's Office.
How do I register for an Independent Study?An Independent Study is a course created by either the student or the faculty sponsor and is not already offered as a catalog course. The form is available from the Registrar's Office or online.
What is a Course Exception Form?This form is used for certain circumstances when online registration is not permitted. Examples of when this form is used would be: not having the prerequisites, not taking the corequisites, exception to required class level, or instructor's permission required. The form is available online at Course Exception Form or in the Registrar's Office.
What if I repeat a course?When a course is repeated where credit was already earned, students must complete the Course Exception Form to repeat the course. Credit is not granted twice for the course.
