Course Selection Form Fall 2013
In order to facilitate a more equitable distribution of high demand courses, online registration will be closed for IH743, IH745, and IH887. Full time students who have successfully completed 30 or more credits, and part time students with 24 or more credits by the end of the Summer 2013 semester will be prioritized for these courses. Preference will be given to those students who have not had the opportunity to take any of the following: IH743, IH744, IH745, IH790, or IH887. For all other Fall 2013 courses, registration will begin as usual at 7:00am on April 3, 2013. You do not need to complete the form if you are interested in other IH courses.
The reasons for this new system are two-fold. First, we want to ensure that interested students graduating in the Fall 2013 or Spring 2014 semesters will have the chance to take at least 1 of these courses before graduation if they have not had access to them before. Second, the content of these courses will be rigorous and we want to ensure those students registered will have the course experience to succeed in them.
In order to be considered for any of the 3 courses listed above, students with 30+ credits (or part time with 24+) must complete the online form by 5:00pm on March 21, 2013. You will have the opportunity to indicate your preferred course(s). We will do our best to match you according to your preferences, and students will be notified by March 27, 2013. The SPH Registrar will pre-register students for these courses on April 2. If there are spots remaining after we have matched students, they will be available to all IH concentrators on a first come first served basis via the online waitlist form. The waitlist form will be available at 7:00am on April 3, 2013: http://sph.bu.edu/waitlistform.
We are hopeful that this registration protocol will help relieve some of the stress associated with our current registration process and assure things go smoothly on the 3rd. If you have questions, please feel free to email the IH Academic Coordinator.
