4 Full-Time Students: For financial aid purposes students must be registered for at least 5 credit hours to qualify for full-time financial aid. However, the program has a lock-step curriculum, which means that taking anything less than the full-time schedule can make timely program completion difficult. Should you ever consider taking less than the required full-time credit load you must seek academic advisement through your Faculty Advisor. Reduced-Load Students: Students must register for at least 3 credit hours in order to maintain eligibility for half-time enrollment status and subsequent financial aid. Should you ever consider taking less than the required credit load you must seek academic advisement through your Faculty Advisor. Enrolling in additional coursework: First year students are not permitted to enroll in additional courses unless they have been awarded transfer/waiver credit for required first year courses. Your curriculum has been carefully planned, keeping in mind such issues as course sequences and prerequisites, work load and time management, requirements for practicum training and financial aid. Transfer or Waiver of Class: Graduate classes that duplicate TCSPP classes are eligible for consideration for transfer or waiver. Please consult the Student Handbook/Academic Catalog for details on how to submit a packet for transfer/waiver consideration. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PROGRAM CURRICULUM MAY UNDERGO CHANGES AND REVISIONS DURING YOUR COURSE OF STUDY. Changes will be announced by your academic program and you will be informed of any new or different requirements for degree completion. How does registration work? Registration is a first-come, first-registered system. Students registration date will be assigned in eportal. After all students are registered, we have "Open Schedule Modification," a period when anyone can drop or add a course with an open seat. Please note that waiting until the end of the registration day, or waiting until Open Schedule Modification to select your classes, will very likely mean that your course schedule will be inconvenient, and may mean a course section you would like is already full. There is no waitlist option for closed courses. Closed classes are closed, although there may be availability as other students add/drop. As registration patterns become clear, we will create additional or cancel under-enrolled course sections as necessary. Students will be notified via their school when we make such changes. Sometimes we have to rearrange faculty assignments as well to accommodate new courses and sections. Students typically are not notified of instructor changes unless the course is Professional Development Group. The simplest and best registration tip we can offer is this: After your registration is complete, log out of the registration system, log back in, and print a copy of your confirmed schedule. If you registered correctly, your classes will have a status of "Registered" instead of "Selected." By doing this you can confirm that your requested registration was approved. You should save this copy of your schedule. Writing Assessment Process: The Writing Assessment Process created by a team of English experts is intended to give you an opportunity to demonstrate your current writing proficiency. Once you formally enroll at The Chicago School, you will be asked to participate in an online writing assessment that will help gauge your current proficiencies. If our analysis of your essay shows you would benefit from skill-building in writing, you will automatically be registered for the next available
5 offering of our online Academic Writing Course which was designed specifically for graduate students in psychology. Should you have questions about the writing assessment process, reach out to: Academic Writing Course: Our one-of-a-kind Academic Writing Course gives you the very rare opportunity to focus specifically and consciously on your academic writing. This course will prepare you to become the most powerful writer you can be both in the classroom and in the world at large. CANVAS: Canvas is The Chicago School s online learning management system. Students will have access to courses in Canvas approximately one month before classes begin as long as registration is complete and once the professor has made the page available. Canvas can be used to post syllabi, host discussion boards, turn in assignments, and much more. To access Canvas, visit Please review the quick start guide, found at to become familiar with Canvas and how it may be used. BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR S ON TRAINING ON HOW TO USE CANVAS. Chicago School Once you have submitted your deposit to attend classes at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, your Chicago School will be the primary form of communication used by the school and faculty. It is important to check frequently to ensure you do not miss important updates, information and communications.
