Fall Schedules are available and Add-Drop (Fall) is open, now that courses which were over-enrolled have been pruned and sections have been balanced. Also “Final Exam Schedule (Basic)” is available here and on the faculty and student portals.

Schedules are largely confirmed, although there may be some changes in language courses and in section assignments of other courses after the language placement exams (in all but French) on September 7th. There may be some new openings in language courses after the placement exams are processed; students should check with individual language instructors on the first day of class to find out if there is room.

Students should check the course “Rules” in Add-Drop or Curriculum Search BEFORE attempting any schedule changes, and contact instructors for course authorizations or to be added to their waiting lists.
