Registering for Classes
Registration processing for each spring term typically begins around the end of October and the beginning of November. Registration processing for the summer and fall terms begins around the end of March and the beginning of April. A student’s registration date is displayed under their name when they log in to My.Pratt. Class registration is done online through Academic Tools, the same portion of the Pratt website that allows students to adjust their schedule, view their grades, and review their degree progress (audit).
A registry of confirmed courses being offered in the current or future semesters and space availability can be found in the Schedule of Classes available online through the Academic Tools "Students" menu: https://webadvisor.pratt.edu.
Undergraduate and Graduate Bulletins for the current academic year can be downloaded or requested through the admissions office.
Official registration dates can be found on the Academic Calendar or in the Academic Guide for Students (available in the Registrar's Office or download the pdf). Responsibility for a correct registration and a correct academic record rests entirely with the student. Students are responsible for knowing regulations regarding withdrawals, refund deadlines, program changes, and academic policies.
