Each department handles registration of new students differently. Students will also have different registration instructions based on their admit status:
- Undergraduate Domestic Freshmen and A&D Transfers who need to take all Foundations courses will register themselves for certain classes—review your packet for more information. Packets will be mailed in June.
- Most Transfers will need to contact their Academic Advisor to determine their first semester schedule. Art & Design transfer students can begin registration July 22. Architecture students will start August 1. Liberal Arts and Construction Management transfers have rolling registration and should contact their advisor for more information.
- Graduate Domestic students will be contacted by their advisers about registration. Your registration informational packet will give you all of the other information needed to complete registration. Packets will be mailed in June.
All International students, graduate and undergraduate, need to go through www.pratt.edu/mypratt and make an appointment to check in the with Office of International Affairs.
To schedule your appointment:
- Log in with your OneKey, scroll down the page until you see “International Student Appointments”.
- Click “Manage/Schedule Appointment” to make an appointment for the International Student Check-In and the English Placement Exam (visit www.pratt.edu/iep for exam waiver qualifications). See below for OIA check-in and English Proficiency test dates and times.
- Once students have scheduled their appointment with the Office of International Affairs and scheduled their English proficiency exam, we will be able to complete the registration process with you.
All International Students must check in with the Office of International Affairs (OIA) and take an English Proficiency Exam with the Intensive English Department before they will be able to register for classes. Check-in and testing must be completed BEFORE New Student Orientation on August 19 in order for your schedule to be completed before classes begin. The only students not required to check in with OIA are domestic U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents. The Intensive English Department may excuse International students from the English Proficiency Exam based on TOEFL scores (over 600) and Country of Origin.
In order to schedule an appointment with OIA and schedule your English Proficiency Exam, please go to pratt.edu/mypratt and log-in using the OneKey username and password that were sent to you once you were accepted to Pratt. Click on the Learning Management System tab, select the International Student Orientation Course and follow the instructions there. Once you have scheduled your check-in with OIA and reserved a date to take the English Proficiency Exam, we will be able to begin your registration process. Once you have checked in with OIA and completed the exam, we will be able to complete your registration process.

All students are required to meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for classes. Academic departments start the advisement process earlier than the first day of registration. This is done to make sure that large departments will have enough time to meet with all of their students and to help them make good decisions tailored to their needs and academic requirements. Watch for email announcements sent to your Pratt account and online notifications regarding the registration dates, procedures, and deadlines. Following these procedures (and getting good grades) will ensure a timely graduation.
Check the Institute Bulletin, the Pratt Academic Calendar, and the Academic Guide (available for download and in the Registrar's Office) for registration and payment deadlines. Careful attention to these dates will prevent late charges and cancellation of your schedule.
