Registrar Information for Faculty

The Office of the Registrar's home page provides a host of registrar-related information, including the academic calendar and final exam information. Below you will find helpful faculty-specific content for key registrar functions. Contact the registrar's office (315-228-7408 or registrar@colgate.edu) if you have questions that are not covered here. 

Spring Grades

All final grades must be submitted online via Faculty Dashboard in the portal. 

Senior grade deadline – Monday, May 16, 9:00 a.m.

It is imperative that senior grades be received by this deadline in order to allow time to complete a final graduation audit for each student, determine University Honors, and print an accurate Commencement program.

Non-Senior Grade deadline –Tuesday, May 24, 9:00 a.m.

This is a firm deadline. Late grades create considerable problems for students and university offices, and can delay the academic review and petition processes. 

The registrar’s office will roll grades on Monday, May 16.

Banner does not allow grades to be rolled by class year. Therefore, once they are rolled, all grades entered on or before May 16 will be visible to students of all class years. After May 16, the registrar’s office will not roll grades again until after the non-senior deadline (May 24). Thus, grades submitted by faculty between May 17 and May 24 will not be visible to students until after May 24. 

Access Banner Self-Service final grade entry from the Colgate portal (portal.colgate.edu).

  1. After logging in (using your network log in and password), click on Faculty Toolbox at the top of the page and choose Faculty Dashboard.

  2. In the Faculty Dashboard, the current term should be the default term. (If not, please select the current term from the drop-down menu.) Your courses will appear under the Course Listing for [Term] heading.

  3. Click on the course title to bring up the class list. Select Submit Grades, which appears in blue at both the top and very bottom of the class list page. This will bring you into the Banner Self-Service grade entry form.

  4. On the Final Grade Worksheet page select the grade for each student from the drop-down Grade menu. Please enter a standard letter grade for each student. If needed, the registrar’s office will convert standard letter grades to S/U, as appropriate, before posting grades to the students’ records. 

    You should leave the “Last Attend Date” and “Attend Hours” fields blank. 

  5. For team taught courses: Only the primary instructor is permitted to enter grades. If you do not have access to the drop-down Grade menu, it is because you are not coded as the primary instructor. Please call or email the registrar’s office (x7409 or sburdick@colgate.edu) if this needs to be changed.

  6. Please click Submit (at the bottom) every few minutes to save your entries. If you want to confirm that the grades have been saved, you can exit the Final Grade Worksheet to return to faculty dashboard, then re-select the course to verify final grade entry. Saved grades will display in the class list.

Allowable Grades

Grades are to be reported as follows: A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, or F. Please note item 4 above concerning S/U grading. For a complete description of Colgate’s grading policies, see the current University Catalogue  or the Faculty Handbook.

Incompletes

Grades of I (incomplete) cannot be submitted online. Incompletes are reported to our office by the administrative deans. An incomplete is given only when the cause is judged to be sufficient, such as the result of an illness or an absence due to an emergency, and only after consultation with the student’s administrative dean. If a student in your course has been approved for an incomplete and it does not appear on the online grade roster, please contact the student’s administrative dean.

After grades are rolled, a faculty member can submit a Grade Change request or submit an Incomplete grade through the portal. 

  1. After logging in (using your network log in and password), click on Faculty Toolbox at the top of the page and choose Faculty Dashboard
  2. In the Faculty Dashboard, the current term should be the default term. (If not, please select the current term from the drop-down menu.) Your courses will appear under the Course Listing for [Term] heading.
  3. Click on the course title to bring up the class list. 
  4. In the class list (not the submit grades roster), use the Grade Change link (last column, next to the student email address, you may have to scroll over) to access the grade change form. If you click the Grade Change link before the grade is rolled, you will be alerted to use the Grade Roster to make updates. Once the grade is rolled you will be taken to the appropriate grade change form, based on the recorded grade. 

Online Forms

(Information and Tutorials)

Electronic permission forms are hosted through OnBase. These forms help facilitate registrar-related permission/approval processes between students and faculty and replaces paper forms that required faculty signatures. 

Please note that these online forms are not intended to replace the usual advising process that faculty signatures were designed to facilitate. Students are still encouraged to have conversations with faculty prior to submitting the forms, though it's reasonable to expect that some of the conversations may now take place after the form is submitted and before you take action. 

Students are expected to reach out to the department and/or view the transfer credit policies PRIOR to submitting a course equivalency request form. If you receive a request form from a student you haven’t previously spoken to, feel free to reach out to them prior to acting on their request.

You will receive a notification email when a major or minor declaration form has been submitted that requires your attention. The email will contain a link to access the form so you can take action.

Instructions for Transfer Credit Evaluators:

  • Click the link in the email notification. (Please use a non-mobile device to avoid issues.)
  • If prompted, log in using your Colgate credentials.
  • If you have more than one item, you can select the one you want to review by clicking on it in the top pane. 
  • You may need to adjust your screen to better view the bottom pane containing transfer course information for the student. To do this, hover over the horizontal line splitting the panes and drag your cursor up to expand the lower pane.
  • The course syllabus is in the upper left hand corner. You should select your viewing method, and double click the document.
  • After you've reviewed the information and had any relevant discussions with the student, you can take action by clicking the "Review and take action" button, located just above the mid divider bar. This will open your action options in the top pane. Again, you can drag the divider bars to adjust your view.   
    • If you decide you are not ready to take action, you can click the Discard and Cancel button on the right. 
  • If you are ready to act, select the appropriate check box to indicate your decision.     
    • If you deny, you may leave a comment for the student and click Submit. This will end the workflow and no further action will be available on the request. The student will be notified of your decision and will be instructed to contact you with any questions. 
    • If you approve or provisionally approve, you will be prompted to fill out the appropriate course equivalency.
      • If you select provisional approval, the student will be required to submit additional documents after completing the course.
    • You may leave any notes to the student or the registrar’s office, as needed. The registrar’s office will see all notes. Students will only see the notes written to them.
  • Click the “Submit” button to send the approved course to the registrar’s office for final processing.

 

What happens next:

  • You will receive a confirmation email with your decision indicated.
  • You can also view the status of the form by clicking the link in the confirmation email. 
  • If you approved, the registrar's office will be notified they have a form to review
  • If the chair approves, the registrar’s office will be notified and will process the form as soon as possible.  
  • Once processed, the student will receive an email notification.     
    • If, for any reason, the registrar’s office is unable to process the course equivalency request form, the student, will be notified. 

 

Contact the registrar's office (transfercredit@colgate.edu or 315-228-7408)  if you have any questions or need additional help.

      • Use this approval to give the student permission to register based on the reasons they selected. If there are additional restrictions not indicated, the student may not be eligible to register without additional approval
    • Override all restrictions except max enrollment limits 
      • Use this approval to give the student permission to register despite any and all restrictions, except for max enrollment. The student will only be eligible to register if a seat is available.
    • Override all restrictions, including max enrollment limits 
      • Use this approval to give the student permission to register for any and all restrictions and permit them to over enroll the course if a seat is not available. (Note: giving a student permission to over enroll the course does not adjust the max cap, it lets the student register despite the max cap. If the course is over enrolled and a student drops, no other student will be able to over enroll without permission.)
  • Click Submit to finalize your decision.


What happens next?

If you approved, coding will be added to the student's record according to the approval given. Once the coding is added, the student will be notified by email and instructed to register themselves online. Once they are registered you will see them on your portal roster. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the registrar's office (registrar@colgate.edu).

Registration

Registration for fall 2022 begins the week of April 4.

Course Offerings
Comprehensive student registration information

Registration is done by class, with seniors first and first-year students last. Within each class, alphabetic groups are rotated each term in order to give all students a fair and equal opportunity in course selections. The schedule for each term can be found in the student information linked above.

Students may make schedule changes beginning during their start time during registration week and ending on June 10. Students are expected to submit instructor permission requests no later than Wednesday, June 8 so instructors have time to approve and students have time to register before the June 10 deadline. 

Event Date
Registration week April 4-6
Registrar waitlist processing April 11 - May 13

Advising Tool

As an adviser, DegreeWorks is an important tool available to assist in the advising process. It is designed to help monitor progress toward degree completion. If you or your students have questions about anything that appears (or doesn't appear) on an audit, please contact the registrar's office (degreeworks@colgate.edu or 315-228-7408).

Student Resources

Your advisees should refer to the registration pages if they have any questions about registration. These pages hold a wealth of information to assist students with the entire registration process.

Students have access to the Plan Ahead feature in Banner Self-Service. This feature allows students to build possible schedules as they plan for registration and then register directly from them during their time slot. They can find a tutorial on the tool and how to register from it on our Registration Help and Tutorials page.

Registration PINs

If you are an adviser, PINs are available in the portal in Adviser Dashboard under Faculty Toolbox . 

Students cannot register until they receive advising and obtain their PIN from a faculty adviser. The registrar’s office does not give out PINs. Students are directed to contact their adviser during the two weeks prior to registration. Although it is expected that students meet with you and receive their PIN well in advance of their registration night, you are encouraged to be available during the week of registration for questions or concerns the students may have during or after registration.

Students are expected to register online during their assigned registration time. However, we understand that some students may need special permission to register. Please use the following guidelines to permit students to register for courses that they can't register for online without an override. 

Course Restriction Overrides:

Students who submit a Course Restriction Override request (link available on our student registration page) to the instructor and are approved will have their record coded to allow them to bypass the restrictions and let them register themselves online.

Available Overrides:

  • Pre-requisite: A student doesn't meet one or more of the pre-reqs
  • Class year: The student's class year prevents registration
  • Major restriction: The course is only available to coded majors or minors
  • Repeat: A student previously earned a grade of  C+ or lower
  • Permission: For "Instructor Permission Required" courses only
  • Capacity: To enable a student to over enroll the course


Note: The override request form can be submitted prior to the start of registration so students will be eligible to register as soon as their registration group starts. It can also be submitted after registration has begun. Faculty will have the option to approve the student to register only if a seat is available or to allow them to over enroll the course. 

Pre-registration:

As the phrase implies, this takes place prior to registration. By pre-registering a student, you are granting the student permission to register before their registration time, regardless of pre-reqs, restrictions, and capacity. This should only be used sparingly and should most often be used for majors or minors within your department or for compelling extenuating circumstances. If your only intention is to permit a student to register without a pre-req or other restriction, you should instead prompt the student to submit a Course Restriction Override request.

For fall 2022 registration: all pre-registration requests must be coordinated by the department/program and sent to the registrar's office by March 30. This is a firm deadline. Additionally, emailed permissions will not be accepted. Student's names should be included on the department/program list or the student should submit an override request form.

Students who cannot register for a course online due to one or more restrictions are expected to complete the Course Restriction Override Request form (available on the Registration Information web page). The instructor will receive an email notification if a student submits a request. 

Approve/Deny Instructions:

  • Click the link in the email notification. (Please use a non-mobile device to avoid issues.)
  • If prompted, log in using your Colgate credentials
  • If you have more than one item, you can select the one you want to review by clicking on it in the top pane. 
  • You may need to adjust your screen to better view the bottom pane containing the submission information for the student. To do this, hover over the horizontal line splitting the panes and drag your cursor up to expand the lower pane.
  • After you've reviewed the information in the bottom pane, you can take action by clicking the "Review and take action" button, located just above the mid divider bar. This will open your action options in the top pane. Again, you can drag the divider bars to adjust your view. 
    • If you decide you are not ready to take action, you can click the Discard and Cancel button on the right. 
  • If you are ready to act, select the appropriate check box to indicate your decision.
  • If you deny, the student will be notified and will not be eligible to register. Click Submit to finalize your decision.
  • If you approve,  you'll be prompted to specify what type of approval you are giving:
    • Override only requested restrictions 
      • Use this approval to give the student permission to register based on the reasons they selected. If there are additional restrictions not indicated, the student may not be eligible to register without additional approval
    • Override all restrictions except max enrollment limits 
      • Use this approval to give the student permission to register despite any and all restrictions, except for max enrollment. The student will only be eligible to register if a seat is available.
    • Override all restrictions, including max enrollment limits (best option for approving waitlisted students)
      • Use this approval to give the student permission to register for any and all restrictions and permit them to over enroll the course if a seat is not available. (Note: giving a student permission to over enroll the course does not adjust the max cap, it lets the student register despite the max cap. If the course is over enrolled and a student drops, no other student will be able to over enroll without permission.)
  • Click Submit to finalize your decision.


What happens next?

If you approved, coding will be added to the student's record according to the approval given. The student will be notified by email when the coding is on their record and will be instructed to register themselves online. Once they are registered you will see them on your portal roster. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the registrar's office (registrar@colgate.edu). 

Waitlists maintained by the registrar's office:

  • Waitlists maintained by the registrar’s office will be managed through May 13. Students will be notified via e-mail if a seat becomes available. They will have 24 hours to change their status to registered through Banner Self-Service. 

  • Faculty should not grant an override to any student while the registrar's office is managing the waitlist or they run the risk of over enrolling the course. Contact the registrar's office during registration if you wish to manage your own waitlist. The registrar's office will also solicit this information from chairs/directors prior to registration week. 

Waitlists maintained by departments/individual faculty:

  • Some departments or individual faculty choose to maintain their own waitlists. In these cases, the faculty member should contact the student directly and ask them to submit a Course Restriction Override Request. After they submit, the instructor will receive an email asking them to take action. Once approved, coding will be added to the student's record and the student will be notified that they can add the course. Students must complete their changes by June 10. 
  • NOTE: If you are managing your own waitlist, please approve students using the "Override all restrictions, including max enrollment limits" so the student can properly register. Even if a seat is available, they won't be able to register unless we add the coding that allows them to over enroll. If a seat is available they won't actually over enroll the course, but the system won't work properly unless we add that coding. If you choose "Override all restrictions except max enrollment limits" then the student will not be eligible to register, even if a seat is available. 

    All waitlists will be deleted prior to the start of Drop/Add to allow online access to open seats. A reminder will be sent prior to the start of drop/add.

All university employees are required to abide by FERPA regulations.

Best Practices to Stay FERPA-Compliant During Registration:

  • Schedules: Do not provide anyone with a student's schedule or discuss enrollment status in particular courses.

  • Email: Always blind copy or use an email distribution when emailing more than one student, and never include student names or other identifiable information in the body of the email.

  • PINs: Don't post PINs in a public place or give to anyone else other than the student (this includes AA's, parents, or any other staff member).

  • When in doubt, contact the registrar's office for guidance and/or clarification (registrar@colgate.edu or 315-228-7408).
