- The course should appear if you entered the code and number; a list of courses should appear if you entered the code only. Locate the course you are seeking, please pay attention to the course number listed on the left. Note: Several courses may appear if you only search by “BUS” as the system picks up the entire college schedule.

WHAT IF THERE IS NO ADD BUTTON?
If there is no ADD button beside a course this means you are not eligible to enroll in this course. If the course is full, a WAITLIST option should appear. If you want to be placed on the waitlist for this course, click on “Wait.” This will place the course in your cart with the status as “On wait list.” If placed on a wait list, check your email regularly since this is how notification will be sent.
How the waitlist works: If a place opens in a course with a waitlist the system will change the status of the first student on the list to “Waitlist Pending” and show a message giving the student 48 hours to register. To register simply click on the “Next” link below your schedule. (At this time it is advisable for you to check your waitlist status each day as the system may not email you automatically.) If the first student does not register within 48 hours the system will open the course to the next student on the list and so on. It is important to check your My Stephens account regularly if you are on a waitlist.
WHAT ABOUT FINANCIAL AID?
If you have not completed your 2013-14 FAFSA and/or Enrollment Status Form, you must do so immediately in order to have financial aid applied for the fall/spring sessions. If you completed these forms for the summer 2013 session, you should not have to complete them again.

Directory Information Notice
Colleges may disclose, without consent, "directory" information. Directory information is information not generally considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. This includes but is not limited to a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, field of study, enrollment status and dates of attendance. However, the College must give eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords certain
rights with respect to their education records. They are:
(1) The right to inspect and review the student's educational records within 45 days of the day the College receives a request for access.
Students should submit to the registrar, dean, head of the academic department, or other appropriate official, written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The College official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the College official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
(2) The right to request the amendment of the student's education records that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading.
Students may ask the College to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write the College official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading.
If the College decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the College will notify the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
(3) The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the College in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the College has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.
A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.
(4) The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by Stephens College to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA are:
Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20202-4605
