EMBARC is the Evening MBA Registration Connection. It is a secure, web-based online registration system. The stages listed below explain the process your course request will go through from request to enrollment.
Once you are officially registered in courses for a given semester, the MBA-PM Program will mail you a registration confirmation packet which includes an ISIS Registration Confirmation, verification of your official enrollment in the course(s) listed. Please review the ISIS printout carefully and report any corrections to the MBA-PM Registration Office toll free at 877-383-6227.
You must initiate any change in course registration, including withdrawal from a course.
Approximate mailing dates of registration confirmation packets:
Fall Semester: 3rd week in July
Spring Semester: 1st week in December
Summer Session: 1st week in May
Registration changes can be accomplished as follows:
If you do not attend class, it does not constitute course withdrawal. Failure to provide official notice of withdrawal may result in you receiving a grade of "F" in the course.
Most MBA-PM students will enroll in one or two courses per semester. Students considering enrolling in more than two courses per semester should discuss this decision with their advisor given the intense workload required for successful completion.
Students are not allowed to take any courses that meet on the same day or night. This includes courses where only one of the days or nights overlap.
Summer: Students are allowed to take 3 courses (9 semester hours) in summer when they are actually in no more than 2 courses at any point in time (one course ends before the next one starts).
Fall & Spring (excluding Intersession): Students may enroll in 3 courses concurrently if they meet all of the following:
In addition, students are not allowed to take 3 courses when one of the courses is 6N:240 Strategic Management & Business Policy, even if they meet the requirements listed.
Intersession: Maximum Intersession enrollment is 1 course (3 semester hours) per semester.
Winter: Maximum Winter term enrollment is 1 course (3 semester hours).
A student wishing to enroll in a course that lists a prerequisite must have been waived from the course or satisfied the prerequisite before the course begins. Students not meeting the prerequisite must receive permission from the instructor through their advisor prior to official enrollment in the course.
Full-time student status is defined as follows for graduate students:
Half-time student status is defined as follows for graduate students:
Students admitted to the MBA-PM Program may complete up to 30 credit hours of Full-time MBA course work at the Iowa City campus. MBA courses are offered in Iowa City during the fall and spring semesters.
Students interested in taking courses on the main campus should contact their advisor and must meet on-campus registration requirements (such as student health). Please note there is a difference in tuition rates for on-campus, full-time courses vs. MBA-PM courses.
*Full-time MBA students have priority over such courses.
