The official registration period each term begins with the start of online registration and concludes with the last day of free add and drop for all MAcOM, herbal, and non-degree seeking students. Students within the DAOM program are registered each term by the registrar and notified once registered for the upcoming term. Students within the DAcOM program must see the registrar to register for courses each term.

While didactic registration occurs online for MAcOM, herbal, and non-degree seeking students, registration for clinical rotations beyond the level of observation are handled through in-office registration. All registration dates are published in the Academic Calendar.

Registration for newly-admitted MAcOM students occurs through a one-on-one appointment with an academic advisor and is coordinated through the admissions office. Consequently, please be aware that the below dates do not reflect registration dates for new students.

The clinical registration form is available on the Transcripts and Forms page.

Registration Prep for MAcOM Program

Every MAcOM, herbal, and non-degree seeking student receives a registration packet via their email on record. This email includes dates and deadlines for the upcoming term as well as listing the student’s assigned clinical registration time based on total accumulated credits earned. If you do not receive an email, please contact the registrar.

Planning Your Term
Each student should review the schedules and academic calendar when planning which courses, clinics, and other program requirements they should complete each term. Students should also be aware of prerequisites and co-requisites when planning their courses. This may be completed by reviewing the course structure in the Program Catalog.  

Each student should meet with an academic advisor regularly. These meetings offer the opportunity to plan coursework for the upcoming term and provide an opportunity to obtain clarification of degree requirements. Advising appointments are scheduled through the clinic reception staff and the front desk staff in Building C.

Degree Audit
It is recommended that all students periodically run a degree audit of their work to date to ensure they are on track and to check that all information on their record correctly reflects their academic progress. A good time to complete this is prior to registration each term. Term-by-term requirements are built to include all courses, clinics, and additional requirements such as benchmark exams.

Upon running your degree audit, if you find that something appears amiss, please contact the registrar so that she can investigate on your behalf and rectify any issues prior to registration sessions.

Courses may be audited only after a student has successfully completed the course at AOMA or if a student is required to audit due to receiving transfer credit for a course. Students who wish to complete an audit that is not required due to transfer may register to audit during their registration time. This initial registration is made with the understanding that students needing the course to fulfill a program requirement have priority; i. e. a student may be dropped from an audit if there is not space.

Holds may be placed on a student’s account due to financial or academic issues. These holds may prevent registration and can be viewed on the student portal. All holds must be reconciled prior to registration. For questions about financial holds, please contact Ashley Keith and for academic concerns, please contact Kristen Borthwick.

Registration Day

Waitlists for coursework are created by CAMS during online registration while clinical waitlists are created during in-office registration. All waitlists are managed by the registrar.

Clinical registration by proxy
If a student is unable to register in person for clinical rotations, they may designate a proxy to register for them. The role of proxy may be filled by another student. However, the designated proxy must register at the time assigned to the student. Students registered via proxy will follow the same procedures as those in place during in-office registration; no changes will be made to one’s wait lists or registration until the start of the free add/drop period. It is strongly advised to seek a proxy rather than wait to register at a time later than that assigned.

Late registration
An individual may register any time after the start of the registration period for each term through the first week of the term.

Post Registration

Add/Drop - Clinic and Didactic Registration

Changes made after the free period must be processed through the finance office with approval to add any course or clinical rotation from the registrar.

Payment is due by the end of the first week of the term. For questions, please contact the Finance Office.

If after registration, a student needs to withdraw from the upcoming term, the Withdrawal Authorization must be completed prior to being dropped from all registered coursework.
