Graduate Course Registration

The semester course offerings and information can be accessed through the course listing. Select the blue course title for further details, including the course description.

Students admitted into a Babson graduate degree or certificate program can take courses throughout the year, contingent upon their program structure.

Graduate students should consult their Program Manager for advising questions.

Students who are currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at another college or university may be eligible to apply to Babson through the Graduate Programs office as a Visiting Student for the fall or spring semester.

Registration Process and Policies

Most students register for courses through online registration. The link to online registration is located under the Academic Resources section of the Babson Hub. Students should refer to the registration directions for more information. Students will not be able to register for any courses when registration is closed. Please see the appropriate registration timeline for more information.
Registration information and dates to access the online registration application are emailed to all applicable, active graduate degree and certificate students. Students who have a hold on their account will not be able to register and should contact the appropriate office.

The Registrar’s Office will manually register students into courses that require special permission. The Registrar’s Office will also manually register: entering One-Year and Two-Year MBA students for their assigned program modules; Blended Learning MBA students for their kick-off, core, and capstone courses; and MSA students for their core courses.

Students who receive a prerequisite waiver for a course need to have the professor of the course email the Registrar's Office to confirm. The College does not maintain waitlists for courses.  If a course is full, students are advised to monitor enrollment in the course.

Add/Drop and Withdrawal

Add/drop changes can be made through online registration, in accordance with registration and add/drop dates.

Students may withdraw from courses after the drop deadline, but before the withdrawal deadline. Students will receive a final grade of “W” for withdrawing from a course. Students who do not officially withdraw will receive a final grade for each applicable course and will be responsible for all applicable tuition and fees. Students should email the Registrar's Office to withdraw from a course. All students are advised to review the withdrawal policies stated in the graduate student handbook.

Please consult the academic calendar and appropriate semester registration timeline for specific dates.

Adding, dropping, or withdrawing from courses could affect financial aid and/or immigration status.

Course Load

Part-time students take 1 to 11.5 credits per semester. Full-time students take 12 to 16.5 credits per semester. Full-time students who want to take more than 18 credits must obtain written permission from the appropriate program manager in the Graduate Programs office before registering for the additional course(s). In certain program curriculums, the course load is pre-determined.
