JOESS Registration Guide

The Explosives Engineering Program offers courses on S&T's campus, distance, and via continuing education.  Sometimes the same course is offered both on campus and distance and are listed as different sections.

To make sure you are registering for the correct class, there are a few things that you need to understand.

Section Definitions

When you are registering for a class with multiple sections offered, the guide below will help you dicipher which course you intend to enroll in.

[#] [XYZ]
1 - Lecture A,B,C... On Campus Section
3 - Lab CED - Continuing Education Section
6 - Research DIS - Distance Section
  DIA - ATF Only Distance Section 

The [1] designation is important for graduate students as they are required to have some many "Lecture" based credits.

Keep in mind that Distance and Continuing Education courses are not eligible for the graduate tuition waiver.

CED Sections costs slightly more per credit hour, but additional fees are not tacked on to thes courses.

On campus students who sign up for distance or CED sections will be charged those rates.

JOESS Registration

All sections which include hands-on explosives handling are listed as a wait-list section.  This is our Program's final check to make sure all qualifications are met.

When you are registering for courses in JOESS, you will likely see a key that looks like this:

If you desire a Wait List section, go ahead and register for the course and send Ms. Judy Russell an email and she will put you in the course once we confirm all qualifications are met (e.g. background check).
