My older D is Hartwick Class of 2010. It sounds like the 3-year degree program has been a big PR
move, in that it has generated press. From what I gather from her it is not a concern. However, she is in the Honors program, which offer Honors students a slightly earlier registration spot. If your D is eligible for the Honors program, I could tell you that my D has never had a problem getting a class -- even upper level classes when she was an underclassman (so to speak). D is very pleased with Hartwick and the opportunities she has been able to take advantage of.
