How will my schedule reflect my academic accessibility accommodations?
If you have connected with the Office of Accessibility and your academic accommodations will affect your course scheduling, please communicate these needs to Dr. Fisk. She will work with the academic advisors to make sure these accommodations are considered when building your schedule.
Will my classes be in-person or online?
A very small number of Geneseo's courses will be offered in an "asynchronous online" mode. If you are interested in online study, please add this information to the course registration survey. Your registration advisor can discuss the feasibility of online offerings with you after they build your schedule.
What do I do if I want to make changes to my schedule?
We think you'll do well with the schedule your academic advisor constructs. However, we know that for several reasons you may want to add or drop classes.
Reason might include:
- change of major (contact your registration advisor)
- repeat coursework
- family/childcare/work obligations
- Division III sports
- And more.
In addition, you will be able to make small tweaks on your own (a different section of a class, a preferred topic, or alternate General Education course) during Drop/Add week (See the Academic Calendar for specific dates)
We strongly advise that new students not make significant changes to their schedules without consulting an advisor or the Office of Academic Planning & Advising. Your first Geneseo schedule may include prerequisite courses for upper-level study or access to courses offered on a rotating basis.
When will I receive a copy of my first-semester course schedule?
If you missed this answer before...
New students are registered in the order they complete the Course Registration Survey. Please be sure to check your Geneseo email account regularly for communication from our summer registration advisors who are helping to create your schedule.
We encourage you to download the "Navigate Student" App, where you will find a copy of your schedule and other campus resources.
I earned college credits during high school -- do they count?
High school students earn college credits in various ways, and most count toward your degree program in one of three categories: general elective, General Education, and major requirements. The transfer articulation data bank will help you see how a course earned through another college transfers to Geneseo. If you don't see your course listed, an academic advisor will be articulating it once Geneseo receives your official transcript.
Advanced Placement Credits and International Baccalaureate credits depend upon the score you earned: again, some provide general elective credit, some provide General Education credit, and some count as courses toward the major. Geneseo accepts credits through CLEP only if you take a CLEP exam before matriculating (enrolling) at the College.
Please read the "all students" reminders about having your final transcripts and test scores sent to Geneseo. You can learn more about transferring "pre-college" credits on the Academic Planning & Advising website.
How can I find out how my credits have transferred in?
You can view your current transfer credits by logging into your Degree Works account. Prior coursework that has been entered into the system will display on your account. Courses that are not articulated and those we have not received final transcripts for will not be reflected on Degree Works.
DegreeWorks is a web-based planning tool to help students and advisors monitor students' progress toward degree completion.
To enter Degree Works, start by entering MyGeneseo. Then click on the Degree Works icon.
