The Schedule of Classes is available to students and the general public via myAntioch during week 6 of each quarter. The general public may view the Schedule of Classes by selecting the Guest Login menu option in myAntioch.
Students are permitted to take up to two terms of leave during any four term period. To register for a Leave of Absence, one must complete the Leave of Absence/Enrollment Maintenance Form during the Registration period.
You cannot register for a closed course. Registration is closed for a course that has reached its seating capacity. Some courses have additional sections of the same course offered at different times or with different instructors. If there are alternate sections that fit your schedule and remain open, you may register for one of them. If the closed course has an on-line waitlist, you can add yourself to the waitlist; however, being on the waitlist does not guarantee your entry into the class. If there is no waitlist, you can periodically check the course enrollment status on the online Schedule of Classes. Seats occasionally become available when students drop the course. Always prepare your schedule with alternates for each course that meet at the same time or at times that will not disrupt your entire schedule.
If you are on a waitlist and a space becomes available, you will receive an email at your antioch.edu gmail account confirming that a space is available and the time frame by which you must register online for the course. If you fail to register for the course by the allotted time, the available space will become available to the next student on the waitlist.
The online Schedule of Classes shows that there are open seats in a course, but when I attempt to register it still says waitlisted. Why?
This is because the seats that have become available are reserved for those people who are included on the waitlist. Waitlisted students are not automatically registered when seats become available; students must register themselves after being notified that they have been approved to register for the class. The best thing to do in this case is for you to put yourself on the waitlist, provided the waitlist is still open.
You can view and/or print your course schedule from the My Class Schedule link in myAntioch.
Individuals from the community may request to register for individual courses by completing the Special Student Registration Form. The registration must be approved by the Program Chair to ensure that space is available in the requested course(s).

Yes. Students who are enrolled at least half-time are eligible to take intra-university courses. Students are also permitted to participate in an Antioch Education Abroad program offering. Students must complete the Intra-university Registration Petition Form.
Yes. If you are a continuing student, you may register after the initial registration period – a $100 late fee will be assessed to your student account.
