Revised Registration Gives
Juniors First Priority
The sub-committee of the
Educational Policy Committee
on Registration Procedures re
commended to the EPC today
new structures for registration
for fall term. Although Its pro
posal must be approved by the
EPC and the faculty, it was
thought best to outline the pro
cedures as they now stand. Any
changes will be posted later.
Monday, April 19 return
ing students 111 get a packet
of registration cards in their
boxes. Along with the regular
white cards for fall registra
tion, there will l)e a special
card for students to Indicate
preferences for winter term
courses. From Monday through
Thursday students will see their
faculty advisors and fill out
the cards. It was recommend
ed that faculty keep their regu
lar office hours and not sche
dule meetings during the four-
day period. On Friday JUNIORS
CWLY will turn in their cards
in room 131 from 8:30 a.m.
to 5:00 p.m. Monday April 27-
Wednesday April 29 will be reg
istration dates for all other
students. Juniors will thus have
first priority in registering.
An important change from
past years is that students who
will return next fall must
register during this registra
tion period or face a late reg
istration fee and registration
after freshman and transfers,
with much less choice in the
course offerings. The registra
tion period from April 24-29
is meant to take the load off
lines at the beginning of a
semester.
It was also proposed that
students who will have already
paid their fees by next fall
be excluded from most of the
lines at the beginning of the
semester. As well, the com
mittee recomended that the fa
cilities which do not come un
der course registration and fee
payment be shifted out of for
mal registration procedures.
This would have the effect of
cutting down Immensely on time
spent in lines.
