Take a look at the three videos linked below.  They were prepared to help new students prepare for registration


1) Fall 2019 First-Year and Transfer Students will need an Alternate PIN to access registration.  You will receive your Alternate PIN when you meet with your advisor on campus during orientation.

2) Logging in to BannerWeb now requires your Middlebury email and password.  This is a change from the login information depicted in the videos.

3)  BannerWeb Registration Tutorial for First-Year Students


Take advantage of the prerequisite checking round in BannerWeb: available Monday, August 26, 2019 through 10:00 am on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019.

Beginning August 26, you can access BannerWeb "pre-req check" to determine if you need to request overrides for any prerequisites or other restrictions for your fall courses.

  • Use Internet Explorer to access BannerWeb
  • Select "Register or Add/Drop Classes" from the Registration menu in BannerWeb. 
  • Select the "Fall 2019 Round 1-Chck PreReqs" term from the dropdown list. 
  • On the Add/Drop classes worksheet, enter the Course Reference Numbers (CRNs) of the courses you are interested in taking.  The CRNs are listed on the Course Schedule
  • Note that once your First-Year Seminar placement has been determined, it will already be listed and cannot be changed.

Browser Tip

Internet Explorer is the preferred browser for BannerWeb.  Other browsers (such as Chrome) are not supported and can sometimes produce unreliable results. We strongly recommend students use Internet Explorer for registration.

Important Information about Prerequisites

Be sure to check the prerequisites for the courses in your proposed schedule; prerequisites are shown in the course description in the online catalog. (click on Middlebury College).  If you are meeting a prerequisite through AP, be sure your score has been recorded by checking your record in BannerWeb.  If it is not there, you will need to receive an override from the department prior to registration.  If you are meeting a prerequisite with other high school work, transfer credit, or through IB or A-Levels, you will need to receive an override in order to register online.

Registering for Labs, Drills, and Screenings

Some courses have required labs, drills, or screenings which you must register for when you add the course.  Watch for these companion sections and make room for them in your fall schedule.
