Letter from the Registrar

April 25, 2020


Dear Students:

Whittier College has moved to an online form management system to support registration and other College processes.

Once a form is submitted, it will go through a workflow for the required signatures. You do not need to email the faculty or advisor. They will be notified for approval once the form is submitted. When the form is approved and processed, you will receive an email notification.

These and additional forms can also be found on the Registrar’s webpage under student resources.

When submitting any forms related to registration including Add/Drop, Concurrent Enrollment, Major/Minor Declaration, Change of Major, Academic Overload, Course Override, Course Time Conflict, and Instructor Permission, please pay careful attention to the following:

  • Use only your @poets.whittier.edu email when submitting forms.
  • Read the input fields carefully and ensure that you are entering the correct email addresses. The form management system will not accept your form if it does not recognize the Advisor or Instructor address you’ve entered. Only @whittier emails will work. 
  • For any courses with at TBD Instructor, enter the department chair’s email address. A list of department chairs is available here.
  • If you continue to receive an error message with any form, contact ebecerra@whittier.edu for assistance.

The Registrar’s Office is also available for questions and assistance by emailing registrar@whittier.edu. Zoom office hours for students who need special assistance or troubleshooting are available.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this process.

Be Safe,

John Hill
