Instructions on enrolling in classes

You must meet with your advisor prior to registering. 

Most students register after orientation on August 20th. Don’t worry about being closed out of courses; it’s very rare for graduate students to have this problem. If you want to register before orientation, please contact your advisor to schedule a time to visit and plan your program of study.

Student ID/Parking

To obtain a student ID, please bring one form of government-issued photo identification (e.g., a driver’s license, state ID, passport, etc.) and a copy of your class schedule to Access Services, located in the basement of Crawford Hall. You may also obtain parking permits for the CWRU campus at Access Services. The student lots closest to the Medical School are: #53; #44; #45.

Tuition/Financial Aid

The 2015-2016 tuition rates for graduate study have not yet been published. Please go to the Student Financial Services page for updates. The Department of Nutrition must submit a Memo of Assistance Form to Financial Aid for you. This form verifies your enrollment in our program.

For information regarding student loans, please contact the Office of University Financial Aid 216.368.4530. For information regarding tuition billing, please contact Student Accounts Receivable, Charise McLemore, at 216.368.6903.

You will be required to waive this plan every semester.
