BEST BLOCK PRACTICES FOR STUDENTS...start with being registered in the right course

Students, Review Your Schedule & Available Courses In Banner  If you do not see a course listed on your schedule for block 7 and/or 8 you are not officially registered. Log in to Self-Service Banner and use Add/Drop located on your Student Menu to register for an open course with available seats. All students are expected to be enrolled full-time unless a leave or block off has been approved by the College. There have been several adjustments made to course offerings including cancellations, additions, and capacity increases.  *PLEASE NOTE* As adjustments are being approved, the Course Schedule in Banner is reflecting those changes and is considered current and accurate. 

Did You Know Waitlists Are Temporary Registrations?  Waitlists are considered temporary registrations and are removed from student schedules shortly after the final class rosters are distributed to instructors; this takes place the Friday before the block starts. If you are left on a waiting list for the upcoming block, it is recommended to register for an open course with available seats by using Add/Drop in Banner SSB (located on the Student Menu) before end of business day Friday. Instructors may choose to overload their courses starting on the first day of block. Students can always make a final attempt and pursue the course they were waitlisted for by seeking the permission of the instructor on days 1 & 2 by email request and - if approved - requesting for their COI PIN (the consent of instructor PIN). This PIN is considered the instructor's signature and is used in Add/Drop to confirm your registration change.

Are You Adding A Course After Friday?  If you are adding a course after 5pm the Friday before the block starts, you will be required to enter the instructor’s consent PIN. Instructors receive their their final class rosters by end of business day on Friday and would now need to give permission to any new joiner to be in their class (this includes students off of the waitlist).  *PLEASE NOTE* Students have Days 1 & 2 of block to update their registration using Add/Drop in Banner.

This process will:

  • Add the new class and provide instant access to its Canvas page
  • Drop/Remove any existing class and its Canvas page and also send a drop confirmation notice to that instructor (there is no need for a second PIN!)
  • Please DO NOT ask to be added directly to Canvas – this does not complete the registration process and could jeopardize a student’s ability to receive credit for a course; please request the instructor’s consent PIN (COI PIN) and use Add/Drop for proper registration practices. Banner has a backup feed to Canvas scheduled nightly; any Adds directly to Canvas that don’t match Banner registrations will be removed.

Are You Changing Your Grade Track?  Please note, there has been an extension granted for grade track changes implemented for block 7 & 8 of the Spring 2020 semester. This deadline has been extended until April 17th for block 7, and May 15th for block 8; the last day of each block.

Dropping The Block Instead  Students have until the second Tuesday to drop the block and can do so by using the drop-down menu next to the course found in Drop/Add. Students who decide to take the block off after the drop period ends will need to petition with the Registrar’s Office by sending an email to registrar@coloradocollege.edu. If this is your second or more block off this semester, please work with the Advising Hub to process a leave instead and to discuss any academic progress concerns that taking this block off may impact.

Notice From The Bookstore  The bookstore is closed but will process online orders. Students remaining on campus will order course materials online and pick them up in the mail room. Students should note that Amazon book orders may not arrive on time because Amazon is prioritizing deliveries of other goods.

Additional Resources  There is a central location for further learning resources available from the COVID-19 page that include web and Canvas support in addition to contacts on campus that will continue to be available to support student needs. This information can be found at the very top of this page or by click here: Teaching and Learning Resources

Did you know?

  • Waitlists are dropped at 5:00 pm the Friday before the block begins. If a professor lets you in off the waitlist, you must add it to your schedule using the Instructor's PIN code by the end of the second day of the course in your SSB Drop/Add.
  • All students are required to Check-In the beginning of each semester.
  • If you see a grade of "GW" (grade withheld), it means you still need to complete the course evaluation in SSB. Once you've completed the evaluation, your grade will change on your transcript.
