The Role of the Advisor:
The Role of the Advisee:
Your advisor can be a primary and personal resource to you at UST. Faculty advisors are able to help interpret the academic/graduation requirements and help you choose appropriate classes each semester. To help maximize the support and help from your advisor relationship, please keep a few guidelines in mind.
Early registration is recommended to ensure students are able to get into classes they need. Students register using MURPHY Online. All students are required to met with their advisor prior to their assigned registration day and time to discuss their plans and to have their registation advising hold released.
The following web videos will give you a tutorial about the registration process at UST. Please use the following links:
How to Register in Murphy Online
During the first ten days of classes students may add or drop classes without penalty or record. Once classes begin students should complete a Change in Registration (Drop/Add) form to add classes; this must be signed by the professor of the class and returned to the Registar's office in 126 Murray-Herrick. After the first ten days of class students may withdraw from classes and you will receive a "W" on your transcript. The Registrar's Office and your Undergraduate Academic Catalog has a list of deadlines for dropping and withdrawing from classes.
First year students enrolled for their first term do not have access to drop and add classes through the Murphy Online system. In order to make changes to your schedule you must pick up an Undergraduate Change in Registration (Drop/Add) form from the Registrar's office (MHC 126) or Academic Counseling (MHC 110) or print out the online version. This form must be signed by both the professor of the class you want to add and your faculty advisor and returned to the Registrar's Office. If you want to drop a class you only need the signature of your faculty advisor on the Change in Registration form.
Students must attend class on the first day! Professors have the option to drop you from a class if you are not in attendance. DO NOT assume that if you do not attend the class that you will be dropped from it. The proper procedure is to drop the class online or complete an Add/Drop form. Contact your professor or Academic Counseing & Support if extenuating circumstances will prevent you from attending the first day of class.
A student who has applied and been accepted to UST through the Admissions Office and enrolls in courses with the expectation of earning a degree is called a degree-seeking student. Degree-seeking students enrolled in 12 or more credits during a semester are considered full time students.
A degree-seeking student is ranked by credits successfully completed:
Fewer than 28 credits = Freshman
28 to 59 credits = Sophomore
60 to 91 credits = Junior
92 credits or more = Senior
This provides all of the requirements for the Core Curriculum in a format that is easy to read and plan what you have left to complete. This is based on the 2014-2016 Undergraduate Catalog. If you began taking classes Fall 2014 or later this is your catalog.
