See the Candler Registrar for registration matters prior to leaving for your off-campus experience. You may be enrolled in a Candler exchange program course for 12 hours or for full-time equivalency status CFT (Certified, full-time status; 0 hours of credit) depending upon the terms of your exchange program. Alternatively you may take a leave of absence (if available for students in your exchange program). A leave requires an exit interview. Contact the Candler Registrar, ideally one semester prior to your anticipated leave. You are considered not enrolled and are not eligible for scholarship or loan assistance during a leave of absence.
Pre-registration at Candler and full payment of tuition and fees to the Office of Student Financial Services prior to departure will ensure no difficulties in continuous enrollment. Please verify with the Candler Registrar that your enrollment is complete. If you will be on exchange for a full academic year, you must contact the Candler Registrar by email to request continued enrollment for the second semester of your exchange before the add/drop deadline of that semester (second semester registration is not automatically processed).
Registration at Candler for Candler course work completed off-campus may be an option or may be required, depending on your program. If your program does not require Candler registration, you still have several options. You may choose to pre-register for a directed study course by filling out a Directed Study application prior to pre-registration with the Registrar (normally three semester hours). Complete and sign the form, and obtain signatures from the directed study instructor and your advisor. Check the Catalog for directed study eligibility requirements and guidelines. Alternatively or in addition, you might pre-register for a Ministry Internship (CE 645R) through the Contextual Education Office (one (1) to six (6) semester hours). This requires supervision of work by a Candler faculty member. After a professor signs off on the requisite registration form, it should be returned to the Contextual Education Office for final approval by the Director of Ministry Internships.
Registration is not complete until the required payment is made. You may make advance arrangements with Student Financial Services for the Emory Payment Plan (EPP). EPP is available in Fall and Spring semesters; the Office of Student Financial Services must have your correct billing address for the semester/academic year (though communication is generally sent through Emory email and OPUS).
