Course Registration

First semester graduate students register for classes with guidance from an advisor as part of the admission process. After the first semester, graduate students may register independently or with the guidance of their academic advisor or program director.

Returning students register for the upcoming semester in Week 7 of their current semester. Specific information about each registration period is available on the college website beginning Week 4 of each semester. Course offerings are available in Sonis, the College's student information system, at Graduate students can access the Goodwin College website for registration details. Students should also check their Goodwin College email for registration reminders.

Before official online registration begins, students should:

  • Discuss course selection with their program director or advisor;
  • Make sure that their FAFSA is current;
  • Check for registration holds in Sonis; and,
  • Clear up any holds.

Graduate students who do not register during the official registration period are charged a $100 late registration fee to register during the late registration period. Students may revise their original registrations during late registration without financial penalty. Changes made during the add/drop period may result in tuition and fee changes. Students should refer to the institutional refund policy to learn more about potential financial penalties that may occur because of a change in registration. All changes made to registrations are subject to review by the Financial Aid Office and the Registrar before they are considered final.
