All full time new students are pre-registered into their first term of courses. All students in part time programs
select their courses during orientation and are registered at that time.
Students must register each term for their courses in order to attend classes and
receive instructions on Blackboard. Registration is completed on-line
through the PCOM Nucleus portal and the Banner Web Student link. E-mail notifications
are sent each term when registration will begin; therefore, it is important that students
check their PCOM e-mail on a regular basis.
Third and Fourth year DO students are registered by the Clinical Education department
for their rotations. Please review the Clinical Education Handbook for further information.
Second year Physician Assistant students are registered by the Physicians Assistant
program for their preceptorships.
Fourth year students in Pharmacy will be registered by their Experiential office.
Students will not be allowed to register or attend if there is an outstanding balance
for the current term. Questions regarding tuition payment can be directed to the Bursars Office
(215-871-6190). Instructions for Web RegistrationCourse ScheduleCollege Catalog/Program Curriculum

are: Organizational Development & Leadership, MS Counseling Health Psychology, non-degree
or CAGS student.
If you are dropping all courses for the term then the student must submit either a:
Leave of Absence or Withdrawal from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine form.

Auditing CoursesPermission to audit a course

Students in our graduate programs may request a withdrawal from a course up to the
midpoint of a course and will receive a grade notation of Withdraw "W". After the
midterm or the midpoint of the course, students will not be eligible to withdraw from
a course unless there are extenuating circumstances and they are given permission
from the program director. In the case of such withdrawals after the midpoint of the
course, a grade notation of Withdrawal Pass "WP" or Withdrawal Fail "WF" will be made.
Students can not continue in a program with more than one "WF" grade notations. Click here for withdrawal form
