MALS Pre-Enrollment & Course Registration


There are three (3) steps to the registration process, as follows:


STEP ONE (Pre-Enrollment)

(Please remember that completing this step of the process DOES NOT automatically register you for courses. For on-line course selection, and registration, see step two.)

Review the MALS Course Listings and Course Descriptions for the classes offered this term. You will find a complete list of all courses being offered this term on the Registrar's Timetable of Class Meetings. Course descriptions from all departments can be found on the Registrar's ORC.

Complete the online MALS Pre-Enrollment Form.
The link to this online form has been sent to your Dartmouth email account.  

If you do not complete this form, you will not be able to register for courses on Banner

The information you provide on this form indicates whether you will be enrolled in the upcoming term. This enables us to plan class sizes, and the Bursar’s office to activate your student account for billing purposes.

(For those students who are taking "off" one or more terms (leave term), or who are pursuing thesis research on an independent, un-enrolled basis; complete step one ONLY. However, students registering for Thesis Research or an Independent Study are required to complete all three steps.

Please Note: MALS students have the option of conducting thesis research and writing without being enrolled. However, all students enrolling in thesis research MUST be in residence in the Hanover area, and sign a Thesis Research Residency Agreement.

STEP TWO (Enrollment/Registration)

On-line course selection is through Banner Student Although you have indicated (in step one) your preferences on the pre-enrollment form, you are still required to make your course selection on-line. This step ensures your place in your classes, and should be completed by the dates indicated above. If you are taking any non-MALS courses, these courses require permission from MALS, instructor permission and a signed Non-MALS Course Contract


STEP THREE (On-line CHECK-IN)

  • This is NOT course selection.
  • This is NOT registration.
  • This IS your signal to the college that you have arrived on campus and are prepared to accept the charges for the term. You will also update your personal information, i.e., address, phone #, etc.

Log In to Banner Student and complete CHECK-IN.

IF YOU SKIP THIS STEP, YOUR CLASS ENROLLMENT/REGISTRATION IS NOT COMPLETE.

Please go to Banner Student AGAIN and follow the check-in instructions. When you successfully complete the check-in process, you will be rewarded with a smiley face:-).

NEW STUDENTS: IF YOU ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY - COME INTO THE MALS OFFICE TO COMPLETE CHECK-IN ON THE DAY OF ORIENTATION!.

As many of you know, accurate bills and class lists are dependent upon the information you provide to us – and the entire process depends upon all three steps being completed within the respective dates given.
