Registration

In preparation for registration, returning students should meet with their Student Success Coach or graduate advisor to plan their upcoming class schedules.  Orientation programs for new incoming students are conducted by the College and Schools in late spring and summer in conjunction with course planning and registration.  Banner Self-Service registration is available through DORI for degree-seeking undergraduate (with 15 or more earned credits) and graduate students.  Incoming freshmen, undergraduates with fewer than 15 earned credits, and non-degree students must see their Student Success Coach to register.

Students must be officially registered for classes in order to be considered bona fide students of Duquesne University.  They are not permitted to attend classes, reside on campus, engage in student affairs, or, generally, have access to the buildings and grounds or use the University's facilities unless registration has taken place and arrangements to meet financial obligations have been made. Only when arrangements have been made to the satisfaction of the University for payment-in-full of all financial charges is a student permitted to attend and receive credit for classes.  Students are required to participate in classes in the same semester in which they are registered, billed and awarded credit if earned.  Students who register for a class or classes and subsequently do not attend remain financially responsible for their registration unless written notification of their decision not to attend is received by the Registrar no later than the end of the add/drop period.  Students who register but do not attend will receive a final grade of "F."

Students may register and make schedule changes during Final Registration, also known as the add/drop period.  No schedule changes or registrations are permitted after the end of the add/drop period.  The withdrawal period begins at the conclusion of the add/drop period. Registration dates and deadline are on the Academic Calendar.

Written notification of the intent to withdraw from the semester received after the add/drop period is subject to the University's official withdrawal policy which includes varying levels of financial obligation, depending on the formal date of withdrawal.  Even though absences from classes may be observed and recorded, a student is considered enrolled and in attendance until formal (written) withdrawal forms are filed in the Registrar's office.  No refunds are issued for course withdrawals.  All withdrawals result in a final grade of "W."

Visit the Academic Calendar for all deadlines.

Registration and Enrollment

Returning students can register online using Self-Service Banner > Registration and Planning. First-semester freshmen are registered with the assistance of their Student Success Coach. Students must have a MultiPass account to register through DORI, the Duquesne Online Resources and Information portal.

Log in to DORI. Under Self-Service, select Registration and Planning. Search for classes and complete your registration.

Plan Your Registration with RAPP
RAPP (Review Academic Program Progress) is a tool for students to review their progress through their academic programs and identify the classes they still need to take. Students considering changing their academic program may also use RAPP to review how their coursework to date applies to the new program, and which additional courses must still be fulfilled. Please note that this is not an official degree evaluation and is intended only for the purposes of registration planning.

To use RAPP, log into DORI, navigate to the Self-Service channel, select Student Profile > Review Academic Program Progress (RAPP), or log in directly to your Student Profile.


When to Register
Check the Academic Calendar for registration dates.

The schedule for registration will be posted at least three weeks before registration begins.
  • All students must be registered by the end of the final registration, also referred to as the add/drop period. Add/drop typically ends on the last day of the first week of the fall and spring semesters.
  • Students may register for internships through the fourth Friday of the (Fall/Spring) term.
  • Students registering for internships may not drop another class if the add/drop period has ended.  Course withdrawals are permitted up to the published deadlines.
  • Schedule changes are not permitted after the end of the add/drop period.
  • Course withdrawals (resulting in a "W" grade on the transcript) may be processed after the end of the add/drop period by consulting with your advisor.
  • Check withdrawal deadlines using the Academic Calendar.
  • Refunds are not issued for course withdrawals in the fall and spring semesters and may be offered in summer based on the refund schedule for the term.
Some holds prevent registration, so be sure to check your student record prior to the registration period so you can resolve any outstanding holds.  To check for holds, log on to DORI and go to Self-Service Banner > Student Information > Student Profile.  You can view any holds on the upper right portion of the screen.  Use this guide for assistance in resolving holds.
Cross-registration is a program through the Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education (PCHE) that provides an opportunity for enriched educational programs by permitting students to attend courses at any of eleven participating colleges and universities.

The opportunity to cross-register is open to full-time students enrolled in a PCHE college or university. Each college or university accepts registration from the other institutions; however, first priority in registration is given to students of the host college.

Not all departments or schools at all institutions participate in this program. In each case of student cross-registration, the approval of the Dean or designated individual from the home college or university must be obtained prior to registration. The student’s advisor or dean is responsible for assuring the student’s eligibility for the course in which s/he intends to enroll. To access the PCHE cross registration form, go to duq.edu/registrar > Registration and Enrollment > scroll down to Cross-Registration.

Full credit and grades will be transferred; the academic regulations of the host institution will prevail.

The academic integrity code and other rules of conduct of the host institution apply with regard to its courses and behavior on its campus. The host institution also determines whether its rules have or have not been violated. The student’s home institution will impose such penalties as it considers proper when violations are reported.

Cross registrants do not acquire the status of students in the institutions from which they are receiving instruction (e.g., for purposes of participation in student activities, insurance programs, etc.). They do receive library privileges at the host institution and may purchase course texts at the host bookstore.

Each qualified student normally may enroll in no more than one cross-registration course in any one term or semester under this program.

Duquesne University students who are participating in this program are charged tuition and university fees in accordance with the current rates of Duquesne University; however, students are responsible for paying any additional course or laboratory fees to the host institution.

This cross-registration program does not apply to the summer sessions at any of the institutions. However, taking courses at other institutions during those terms is facilitated by “temporary transfer student” procedures separately agreed to by the PCHE colleges and universities.

Students are encouraged to submit cross-registration forms during pre-registration in order to provide adequate time to receive proper notification of course enrollment.

Procedures

Students must complete the PCHE Cross-Registration form online and then print it. (The form cannot be printed unless it has been filled out--with all required fields complete.) Refer to the PCHE Cross-Registration instructions if you have questions. Refer to our troubleshooting instructions if you have difficulty opening the PCHE Cross-Registration form.  Or simply "right click" on the form, save to your device, and open in Adobe Reader.  The completed form must be signed by the student and by the student's advisor prior to submission to the Office of the University Registrar or the Law School Registrar (law students). The Registrar of the host institution will notify applicants regarding their enrollment status. Notifications are mailed to the address provided on the Cross-Registration form.
