We can’t wait to meet you!

Next step in your transition to Randolph-Macon? New Student Registration & Family Orientation! Our summer pre-orientation program, this event marks your first official day on campus as a Yellow Jacket. With three options this June, you can choose the date that best fits your schedule: June 21, June 24, or June 26. (Please be aware that dates will close when they reach capacity)

While you’re here, you’ll register for fall semester classes, learn more about how to prepare for fall, and make connections with your fellow Yellow Jackets! To make the most of your time on campus, carefully review all the information listed on this page prior to your Registration Day.

Sample Schedules

To help you get a sense of what to expect during your New Student Registration Day, check out our sample schedules linked below! We’ve included both a sample schedule for new students, and a separate sample schedule for attending guests and families.

Expectations

We want to ensure that students and their families have the best possible experience at their New Student Registration Day. To facilitate a seamless registration process, please review the important information below prior to your scheduled event.

Expectations for Registration & Advising

Registering for classes is a really exciting prospect for incoming students. We’ve spent time asking each student about their preferences, and have utilized that information to pre-select two of their courses for the fall semester. On Registration Day, students will spend time with faculty advisors to add their final courses and round out their schedules.

Helpful notes:

  • You’ll work one-on-one with faculty advisors during your registration session. This ensures you’ll have expert guidance as you search for your best fit classes.
  • At the end of your one-on-one meeting, you should be registered for a minimum of 12 credits for the fall semester. 12 credit hours is considered full-time.
  • All students should take courses that encourage exploration. This is true for both decided and undecided students.
  • The courses you register for will count toward your graduation requirements and/or the 120 credit hour minimum required for graduation.
  • After New Student Registration Day, you’ll have plenty of time to connect with your assigned academic advisor during Orientation later this summer. This is the time you’ll begin to develop this very important relationship.
Expectations for Schedule Adjustments

At the conclusion of their Registration Days, each student will have a full schedule for the 2024 fall semester. This schedule is purposefully designed to reflect the individual student interests. Each course will fulfill a requirement for the core curriculum (or Pillars), the student鈥檚 intended major, and/or count toward the 120 credit hours minimum required for graduation.

While this process is very intentional, we understand that some students may wish to make adjustments to their schedules ahead of the fall semester. Each student will be instructed on how to make changes to their schedules before they leave their Registration Day.

TWO IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Students often find that initial questions they might have about a particular course are resolved once they learn a bit more information about the course itself. With that in mind, we strongly encourage students to remain curious and sit with their new schedules in these earliest days of summer, knowing they have plenty of time to make adjustments as needed prior to the start of the fall semester.
  • If a student determines that changing a course is to their benefit, they may log in to MyMaconWeb and begin making schedule adjustments on or after July 1, 2024. Please note that any questions about schedule changes may be addressed at that time.

Preparing for Registration

  • Make a list of anticipated commitments outside the classroom with times 鈥 things like teams, work, family commitments, etc.
  • If you’ve completed dual enrollment courses, ensure official college transcripts are sent to Randolph-Macon.
  • Bring a list of any AP/IB tests you’ve completed, and let us know if you have (or believe you have) scored well. Click here for more information about AP/IB credit equivalency.
  • And most importantly, keep an open mind!

Course Registration FAQs

Some of our most frequently asked questions about registering for fall semester courses!

How many courses will I register for?

The Office of Advising Resources used your Pre-Advising and Course Preference form to pre-select two courses. These courses will reflect your interest, anticipated major, and/or fulfill pillars within the聽91短视频 Curriculum. You will review those courses during your registration session and select additional courses totaling at least 12 credit hours.

Do I need to come prepared with a list?

No course list is necessary. You also do not need to be an expert on the 91短视频 Curriculum or the majors/minors you are considering! Instead, take some time to review the 91短视频 Curriculum and the requirements of the majors/minors you are considering. You can find major/minors and program requirements in the  (please use the side navigation in the Academic Catalog to see each program).

What is the foreign language requirement at 91短视频? Do I take a placement test?

All students will complete two courses in one foreign language. 91短视频 does not use placement tests. Instead, if a student would like to continue in the same language they took in high school, the Department of Modern Languages has already reviewed their application file to determine the best placement. Your placement will be available to you during registration.

Students with college credit for a modern language (that have not yet completed the foreign language requirement) will continue with the next course in the sequence.

I am registered for YJSS 101. What is that?

Yellow Jacket Success Strategies 101 is a one-hour per week first year course. Satisfactory completion of YJSS 101 is required as part of the Four-Year Degree Guarantee. Through regular meetings with their academic advisor and a captain, the course provides students with the resources they need to get involved on campus, gain independence in transacting academic business, explore special academic and co-curricular programs, and learn what it takes to be successful at Randolph-Macon, both inside and outside the classroom. All first-years have been enrolled in a section of this course. The course is 1 credit hour and is graded S/U. 

When do I need to decide my major?

You will declare your major by the end of your second year. If you are not sure about what you want to major in, it鈥檚 okay! Your first year is for experimenting and discovering who you are and where your interests lie. Take classes in areas of interest during your first year. This can assist you in discovering which direction you want to continue as you move into your second year.

Will my AP/IB/Dual Enrollment credits already be accounted for?

It depends! The Registrar’s Office is only able to account for credits earned through AP/IB if there are official scores on record. At the time of registration, some students might not have all of their scores. That’s okay! Students should share a list of AP/IB tests they’ve completed (and feel they’ve done well) during their one-on-one advising appointment.

The same is true for Dual Enrollment (DE) coursework. Transfer credit can only be applied if the college that awarded the credit has sent an official transcript. Be sure to have your college transcripts sent to 91短视频.

And don’t worry 鈥 if credit arrives after you register and impacts your fall schedule, we will notify you.
