What is the Registrar’s Office?
The Registrar’s Office is the keeper of a student’s academic record. The Registrar’s Office is responsible for student scheduling, processing grades, final graduation clearance, verification of enrollment and degrees, processing transcript requests, transfer credit evaluations, and administering academic policies.
How do I get my class schedule? Can I make changes? How do I make changes?
Your first semester schedule will be prepared by the Registrar’s Office. (If you will be attending the Clearfield campus, your first semester schedule will be prepared by the staff there.)
Changes can be made during the first week of classes, not before.
Changes are made using web registration. (See Student Information System below)
If you attend summer orientation, you may receive a copy of what appears to be your first semester schedule. Please note that the schedule you receive at that time is not your final schedule. The Registrar’s Office (or Clearfield Office) may continue to make changes until the start of the semester. Please do not call the Registrar’s Office (or Clearfield Office) about your schedule as personal requests for changes cannot be accommodated.
How do I schedule classes next semester?
You will meet with your academic advisor in late October or early November to discuss next semester’s schedule. You will register for classes using web registration.
Information about registration will be sent to your LHU email account
When does the semester begin? Where can I find the semester calendar?
Classes begin Monday, August 30.
The academic calendar is available on the web at http://www.lhup.edu/academic/acad_affairs/academic_calendars.htm.
Do I have to take any placement exams? How do I do that?
You are required to take a math placement exam. Instructions are available at http://www.lhup.edu/math/math_placement_required.htm if you want to begin to prepare. You will be receiving information about this in the mail; so please read it and carefully follow the steps.
I chose a major when I applied, but now I want to change it. How do I do that?
You may request to change your major until August 1 through the Office of Admissions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
After that date, you will need to wait until the semester begins to change your major. At that time you will need to complete a change of major form.
What is an academic advisor and how will I get one?
An academic advisor is a faculty member in your chosen major who will guide you through your academic career at LHU. He/she will assist in course selection, discuss career options, as well as provide help and guidance when you have questions.
An advisor will be automatically assigned to you. You can locate your academic advisor by accessing the Student Information System and choosing ‘Biographical’. Please note that some advisors may not be assigned until the first week of classes. If you do not have an advisor, you may contact the department chairperson of your major.
How do I know what books are required for my classes? Do I have to buy them from the University Bookstore? When should I buy my books?
Some faculty will post their required books on the web. You will be able to see this information when you view your class schedule on the Student Information System. If no book is listed, that does not mean there is no required book. The Bookstore will have book information. (Clearfield campus students may visit the Clearfield campus bookstore’s website, http://www.lhup.edu/clearfield/main/bookstore.html).
You are not required to purchase books from the University Bookstore. Some students purchase books online or at other locations.
While it is best to wait until after the first class meeting to obtain your books so that you are sure of getting the correct book, you may want to purchase them before the first class meeting. Just be sure of the vendor’s refund/return policy so that you are able to return if necessary.
I will be a commuter, how do I get a parking pass?
Information about campus parking is available at http://www.lhup.edu/parking/.
Clearfield campus students may refer to http://www.lhup.edu/clearfield/main/parking.html for information about campus parking.
How do I get my student ID card?

Many forms needed throughout your academic career can be found at the Registrar’s Office website.
Lock Haven University email account-
Each student is assigned an @lhup.edu email account. This account is to be used for university business. Many offices will only correspond with students using this email account. It is important that you set up your account and check it. You may receive information at this account prior to your starting at LHU which will not apply to you. However, closer to the time the semester begins, you should pay close attention to messages received at this account.
If you have not already received information about setting up your email account, it should be arriving in your mail within the next couple of weeks.
Student Information System (SIS)-
This provides online access to your information as a student. It includes academic information such as grades (midterm low grades and final grades), a degree audit (checklist of courses required for your major and what you have completed), class schedule, registration, transfer course evaluation (if applicable), biographical information, and financial aid information.
To access the SIS, go to www.lhup.edu/registrar/registration/index.html and click on "student log-in." You will need your student ID number and your password to access the SIS. You should change your initial password the first time your log on to ensure others do not have access to your information. If you have not already received information about accessing the SIS, it should be arriving via mail within the next few weeks.
