During the add drop period you may have special students approach you asking to be allowed to register for your class. These students do not have the ability to register via WebAdvisor either because the course section does not currently exist, or they do not have access to web registration.

  • These students should have special registration forms and registration permission will be given on paper forms rather than on WebAdvisor.
  • If allowed to register they will be regular students in your courses and should adhere to the same standards as all other students since they will be earning regular Lewis & Clark credit.
  • Please note that if you have a wait-list, preference should go to our regular degree seeking students.
Special Student Programs

Students in “special programs” are those students who are not currently seeking a degree from the CAS. They may be community members, staff, faculty, students at the LC law school or LC graduate school, or students from other schools earning credit in a semester away from their home institutions. These students should have a special registration form provided by the Admissions office.

Alliance Cross Registration

Students from other Alliance member schools may take one course at Lewis & Clark in any given semester. These students should have a special registration form provided by the Registrar’s Office.

Practica, Internships, Independent Study and Directed Study

These course sections must be arranged and the completed learning agreements submitted prior to the end of the add/drop period.  (See additional information on the Faculty page of the Registrar’s website.)

Because there are limits on the number of internship and independent study credits which may be registered for in any given semester, and on the total number of such credits which may be applied to the degree, each student’s form must be reviewed before the course may be added to the student’s schedule. We strongly encourage students and faculty to submit the google-form learning agreements to the Registrar’s office early in the add/drop period so that students may be alerted to any concerns before the end of the add/drop period. Forms received in the last few days of the add/drop period may not be evaluated in time for students to make alternate choices if they have exceeded the maximum number of allowable credits.
