How do I pre-register for classes?
Use one of the pre-registration methods described on the registration page.

When you arrive at University, pick up your class schedule at the registration table.



I didn't pre-register. Can I still attend University?
Absolutely! Come to the registration table to sign up for classes that day.



A class I want to take has a fee. To whom do I pay it and when?
All fees for class materials and/or handouts are paid to the instructor of the class at the time of the class.

Please send no money to the Registrar. She'll just return it to you at the site.



I'd like to teach a class. What do I need to do to get it into the course catalog?
Contact the Chancellor of the University with the name of the class you wish to teach, a brief description, how long the class will take (in hours), if there are any material fees (to cover handouts or items your students may need), if there is a maximum number of students your class can accommodate, as well as your name and contact information. For complete information, please see the Sign Up To Teach page.



How do I earn a degree?
As defined in the University Charter, there are four degrees given out by the University of Atlantia.

A Bachelor's Degree is awarded after a student has completed twenty-six hours of classes.

A Fellowship in the University of Atlantia is awarded to those who have taught classes at three University sessions.

A Masters Degree is awarded to those who have earned their Bachelor's degree, are also Fellows of the University, have completed ten additional hours of classes as a student, and taught at two additional University Sessions.

Honorary Doctorates are awarded by the Chancellor at his or her discretion.


Previous Degree Requirements:
University session 43 (November 1997) was the last University session to confer Bachelors Degrees using previous requirements.

University session 48 (December 1999) was the last University session to confer Trivium/Quadrivium using previous requirements.

University session 81 (March 2012) was the last University session to confer Masters Degrees using the following previous requirements:
A Masters Degree is awarded to those who have earned their Bachelor's and are also Fellows of the University.
(Someone who has completed twenty-six hours of classes as a student and taught classes at three universities.)



I'm pretty sure I should have earned a degree by now. Why haven't I received one?
If you believe you should have earned a degree as stated by the requirements above, contact the registrar. Please note that if you have changed your mundane or SCA names since the first university you attended, your records may be filed under two separate names unless you've informed the registrar. The University database is independent from all other SCA membership records.

Class attendance is recorded by the roster sheets turned in by the instructor after the class. Make certain that if you have attended at least 75% of a class that you have legibly signed the roster in order to receive credit.



I'd like a handout for a class I can't attend. How can I get one?
If you are able to attend the University session where the class is being taught, drop by and ask the instructor if there's an extra you can take. If there isn't, most instructors are happy to get another copy made for you.

If you will not be at the session, ask the Chancellor to put you in touch with the instructor.



How do I get University credit for our local collegium, a targeted Symposium, or official local event we are hosting?
Students can get University credit for classes taken at a Collegium, Symposium or other official non-University event (as defined by Kingdom law). The event organizer just needs to contact the Chancellor in advance for permission. Then whoever is organizing classes needs to collect rosters for each class with the modern and SCA names of students and instructors present as well as the title and length of the class. After the event those rosters can be mailed to the Registrar and she will enter the data so credit is given. We have a roster template if you wish to use it. Please note that credits will only be granted to students. Instructor credits are specifically reserved for teaching at an University. These credits affect the University degree system. In order to ensure that the participants receive timely degree awards, the rosters must be received within 60 days of the event date. If the rosters are not received within 60 days, University credit allowance will be revoked. Thank you for your understanding.
