Currently Enrolled Students

All GSLIS students register through an online system called AARC. Although dates are subject to change, for CURRENTLY ENROLLED students, registration for Fall classes generally takes place in April, registration for Spring classes generally takes place in late October or early November, and registration for Summer classes generally takes place in March. (When specific dates are set, they are announced on GSLIS-Info and noted on Academic Calendar. A student's "Registration priority" is based on the amount of credits that have been completed plus credits in progress; registration times are assigned and noted in AARC in the weeks leading up to the registration period itself.

New Students

The registration timetable for NEW STUDENTS is different and generally takes place two months prior to the beginning of their starting term. Prior to registration, NEW STUDENTS will receive an email from the Director of Curriculum via gslisreg@simmons.edu outlining the process and date for online registration.

The GSLIS registration process is overseen by the Director of Curriculum. Specific questions should be addressed to gslisreg@simmons.edu. Please see the "Online Registration" link (to the left) for more information about how to use AARC.
