I’ve been accepted to the program! What are my next steps?
In your acceptance letter, you will be directed to fill out a form acknowledging that you will enroll in the program. You will then receive your Gettysburg account credentials, which will be available in your application portal. It can take up to 10 days for your credentials to be created. If you are not starting in the upcoming term, you will not receive your credentials until closer to your start date. Access your application portal here.
Once you’ve received your login credentials, you can begin completing tasks on your student dashboard. You must complete the Dashboard at least one week before the start of classes. It will take approximately five minutes. Here is the link to access the Dashboard.
How do I register for courses?
Log into the Campus Experience platform and follow these instructions to register for courses.
Section professors will appear in the course catalog alongside the lab section once they are assigned.
Please note that there is a hold on registering for more than two courses. Email the registrar’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to lift the hold.
If you are registering for the Capstone in American History, email the registrar’s office at email@example.com as they will need to enroll you manually.

Where do I access my courses?
Gettysburg College uses the online learning platform Moodle, also known as OpenLMS. In the week leading up to the term, you will gain access to a lecture section and lab section for your course. The lecture section houses the lectures and links to the live Q&A sessions. The lab section is where you submit assignments and interact with your section professor and other students. Click here to navigate to Moodle. You can find a walkthrough of how courses are structured here.
Can you tell me more about the Capstone course?
Click here to view a video by Dr. Laura Ping for information about the Capstone course and how to prepare for it. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the Capstone course.
Can my Capstone in American History paper/project topic be approved in advance of the semester?
No. Capstone projects are approved during the opening weeks of the Capstone in American History. However, if you will enroll in the Capstone within the next three semesters and want to receive early feedback about potential research topics, you can contact email@example.com. Note: This email address is checked weekly on Fridays.
What happens if I drop a course?
To drop a course, log into Campus Experience where you registered for your course. In the left hand menu select “Enrollment.” Underneath that, select “Drop Classes.”
You are eligible for a full refund if you withdraw from your course before the add/drop deadline one week into the term. After that, you are able to withdraw but you will not receive a refund.
The add/drop deadline for Spring 2023 is February 15, 2023. If you withdraw from your course after this date, please email the registrar’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org and inform your section professor.
