Clinical registration is a process where students preference clinics for the following academic year. When taking a clinic, students must also take an associated course component.
Another way to register for clinicals is through Add/Drop. Once initial clinical registration has occurred, online adding and dropping begins. Students are able to add open clinicals, join the waitlist for closed clinicals, or drop clinicals for which they are currently enrolled.
Dropping after the applicable deadline will result in an "Withdrawal" (WD) on your academic transcript. You cannot drop a multi-semester (e.g. Fall-Winter) clinical course after the first semester's (Fall) drop deadline.
Students can change their clinical credits on Helios until the clinic's add/drop deadline. Once the add/drop deadline has passed, students no longer have the ability to change their credits on their own.
Students can request credit changes for several weeks after the add/drop deadline (for winter term, the period within which you may change credits is one week into the semester) by contacting the Registrar’s office (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the following dates:
After the above dates, all clinical credit changes must be approved by the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs. It is critical that a student’s hours match their credit allotment (for fall/spring, 1 credit = 5 hours per week; for winter, 1 credit = 20 hours per week). It is the responsibility of each student to keep track of their hours to ensure their hours worked matches the requisite number of hours per credit. Each clinic is also responsible for monitoring student hours and performance.
