Get Your Stop Removed
What is a "registration stop"?
A stop is a block on your registration that prevents you from registering.
Why is it there?
The College believes you should speak face-to-face wth a full-time faculty memeber before you register to answer any questions you may have and advise you on any changes in the major.
How do I remove my stop?
You may choose one of the following options:
1. Formal Advisement
In this option, the student visits an available advisor in person with a completed degree checklist. Advisors are generally available during regular teaching hours during the week, but there is no guarantee that an advisor will be available at all times. During peak advising times, such as during registration, the waiting lines for formal advisement may be long.
2. Self-Advisement (download and print the Self-Advising Checklist)
For this advising option, students take full responsibility for their academic choices. This option is suitable for students familiar with the all the relevant aspects of their degree and no questions for an advisor.
This option requires students to read through a set of modules on the requirements for the degree, career choices, and so on, all presented here on our webpage. They also complete their DegreeWorks audit through the CUNY Portal. Then they fill out a form stating that they take full responsibility for the direction of their training and course selection. They complete the advising checklist. Then, the student presents themselves to a full-time faculty member or the secretaries in 4S-108, they make sure the students have completed and signed the form, and remove their stop.
3. Group Advisement: This semester it will happen on October 25, 2012 (Thursday) (click here for the flyer)
Every semester, the week before registration, we (the Psychology Club and the Faculty) hold a workshop for students. It covers topics like: introduction to the major, sequencing classes, career choices, honors/independent study classes, and so on. Students attend the hour-long workshop, ask questions face-to-face with faculty and peer advisors, and then they have their stops removed.
