Registration Guidelines

Procedures for registration

You may register for any class directly online from any computer that is connected to the internet. Class rank and the last two digits of your Student ID number determine appointment times. Students may register anytime after their appointment time, but not before. For more information about registration guidelines and procedures, please visit the Registrar’s webpage.

If you cannot register for a course

If the course and section you want to register for is closed due to full enrollment your options are as follows:

  1. Please keep checking CAESAR to see if a space has opened up in the class you want. Adding and dropping courses is done directly through CAESAR, not through the department.
  2. Email the coordinator with your information (name/email address, year at NU, all of the possible times you can take the course – in order of preference.) If the course does not have a coordinator, please email this information directly to the instructor.
  3.  Please note that permission numbers are not available before the Change of Registration (Drop/Add).
  4. Opening seats reserved for first-year students taking Spanish 101-1, 121-1, and 125-0 in Fall quarter will be available during New Student Registration period.

If you think you need to switch courses due to placement

For questions about the placement exam, contact the Placement Exam Coordinator, Elisa Baena.

For questions about possible changes in placement, consult the Director of the SLP, María Barros.

Literature Courses

Students should contact one of the faculty advisers at the beginning of each quarter or during pre-registration or advanced registration. For the advising meeting students should have available an unofficial transcript (an electronic copy) of their academic record.

The Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) oversees the literature and culture course offerings in the department. If you have specific questions regarding Spanish course 210 and above in which you are enrolled, please speak first to your instructor. If you have general questions about courses content and offerings, you should contact one of the  faculty advisers. In the event that the instructor or the faculty adviser cannot provide a satisfactory answer your questions, please make an appointment with the DUS.
