Fall 2012 Web Registration for graduate students will start on Monday, April 9 at 8:30 a.m. You may register online from your own computer or, if you require help, an assistant from the Registrar’s Office will be available in Davidson Hall, room 116 (Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.).
Academic advising for the Fall 2012 semester for graduate students who do not have official planned programs on file will begin on Monday, March 26.
The Fall 2012 schedule of courses will be available online (starting March 7) and can be viewed at Courses and Catalogs: ( http://www.ccsu.edu/page.cfm?p=5308; Click on the link “Course Offerings”).
Please take note of four significant items that will directly affect your registration for the upcoming semester.
- The CentralPipeline/WebCentral-Banner Web is available for registration on April 9, 2012.
Register through CentralPipeline/WebCentral-Banner Web. Click here https://ssb.ccsu.edu/pls/ssb_cPROD/twbkwbis.P_WWWLogin .
You may need to choose another password if your old password has expired. If this is the case, click here https://accounts.ccsu.edu/wacctmgt/.
- Information on Tuition and Billing: CCSU has converted to an all e-billing and e-payment system. A paper bill will not be mailed to your home. You will be accountable for timely response to University e-correspondence; therefore, it is every student’s responsibility to keep his or her CCSU email preferences up-to-date via our accounts management program in CentralPipeline. Click here for e-billing information.
- Before you can register, you will be prompted to review and update your permanent address and your local address (address other than your permanent, if you have one), and provide a name and address of someone to contact in case of an emergency. You can review and update this information at any time before you begin to register.
You can obtain your personal academic information through CentralPipeline/WebCentral-Banner Web.

- Your Advisor
The process for the Fall 2012 semester is as follows:
Graduate students who have filed an official planned program of study with their advisor that was then submitted to and approved by the School of Graduate Studies are not required to see their advisor; furthermore, they do not need an Alternate PIN number.
However, you have until March 25 to file and submit a planned program of study to the Graduate School Office so that an alternate pin will not be necessary for registration.
After March 25, 2012, the following steps will be necessary for registration.
- You must see your advisor during the academic advisement period from Monday, March 26 through Thursday, April 5. Please make sure you make your course selections for the Fall as well as complete and submit an official planned program of study resulting from your meeting. (Graduate policy states that the Planned Program must be submitted no later than having earned 16 credits but the sooner this is filed the better protection graduate students have for any changes made to the program.)
2. It will be necessary to obtain an Alternate PIN from your advisor before you will be allowed to register. Please note that the Alternate PINs will only be available from your department advisors. New Alternate PINs are assigned each semester. Those provided for last Spring 2012 registration will not work for this Fall 2012 semester. (Note also, that neither the registrar or graduate studies will turn off the Alternate PIN requirement. Thus, students with no planned program who wait to register late or after the Spring semester may encounter delays if faculty advisors are not available to assist them.)
Prior to the meeting with your academic advisor it may be helpful to complete the following tasks:
- Bring an unofficial planned program sheet with you. If you do not have one, please get one from your department or from the Graduate Office, Barnard 102.
- Print a copy of your unofficial transcript from CentralPipeline/WebCentral-Banner Web (To access, visit www.ccsu.edu, then click on CentralPipeline, then on Students, then on WebCentral-Banner Web to login with your BlueNet account. Then click on the Registration/Records tab to find the Unofficial Transcript/Academic Transcript.)
- Update your academic progress on your unofficial planned program sheet.
- Form initial decisions about the courses you would like to take for the Fall 2012 semester.
Please note: Students who have health or financial holds on their record will not be permitted to register until these have been cleared. Also note that students failing to pay their fees when due, may be assessed a late fee and may also be administratively withdrawn and have their schedule of courses dropped. A non-refundable Re-Registration Fee will be charged to those registering again for the same term.
Instructions for registering on the web may be found online at http://www.ccsu.edu/uploaded/departments/AdministrativeDepartments/Registrar/Registering_for_Classes.pdf
Remember, graduate students may register starting Monday, April 9 at 8:30 a.m. I encourage you to register for classes as soon as you know your sequence of courses. Graduate students have a history of waiting until the last moment to register for classes. Unfortunately, this sometimes results in a student not being able to get into his/her desired classes because the classes are either full to capacity or cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. It is important to note that when you register for classes early, there is no immediate payment of course fees required (billing payments due July 15). In addition, you may request a payment plan ( http://www.ccsu.edu/page.cfm?p=4643 ).
If you have been admitted conditionally, your department has indicated on your acceptance letter what you need to do in order to be fully admitted. If the Department has noted specific courses that you should take, then these should be the first set of courses in which to enroll if they are offered in the semester. (Once you have met all conditions, you should notify your advisor; I will then send you a letter of full admission to the program. In order to proceed as a graduate student in good standing, full admission is required.) Please note: Depending on departmental pre-requisites, you may or may not be able to register on line as a conditionally admitted student.
Once registration time arrives, you may continue to register at any point beyond the start time.
