From Registration Through Commencement

The Office of the Registrar at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University maintains student records, supports student registration and completes commencement-related activities. In addition to our office, the University Registrar’s Office provides a variety of services, including official transcript requests and enrollment and degree verifications.

Our office is located on the fourth floor of the FPB School of Nursing on the Health Education Campus in Samson Pavilion. Contact us at

Class Registration

To sign up for classes, follow these steps:

  1. Contact Your Advisor to discuss your academic plans and request your advising hold be released.
  2. Log in to the Student Information System (SIS) and register for classes

Once logged in to SIS, you can access your academic record, search for classes, view an unofficial transcript and register for classes.

Financial Obligations

You must pay all debts to the university in full before your registration will be processed. Please clear any financial holds before attempting to register.

If you have questions about your account, please contact the Office of Student Financial Services at 216.368.2226. If you have questions regarding your financial aid, please contact Dedra Adams, Director of Financial Aid, at 216.368.0516 or


Please note: Not attending class does not constitute a withdrawal.

Students who discontinue all studies during the semester (even if enrolled in only one course) must complete a "Withdrawal Request" through SIS. Complete withdrawal during the fall and spring terms will result in a "WD" grade on the student's academic record. Tuition charges for the semester will be a percentage of the tuition cost based on the number of weeks in session. The withdrawal process will not be considered complete until either an online withdrawal request is processed by the Registrar's Office or a signed withdrawal form is received and processed by the Registrar's Office.

Withdrawals Will Not be Permitted After the Last Day of Classes.

See Summer Registration and Withdrawal Deadlines for important summer session deadlines.

  • To request a withdrawal, please log in to SIS, and select "Withdrawal Request" under the "Other Academic..." menu.
