Fall Schedules and Add-Drop Open (as of 8/8/18)

  • Over-enrolled courses have been pruned and sections have been balanced. Fall Schedules and Add-Drop (Fall) are now available through the student portal.
  • Final Exam Schedule (Fall-Basic) is also available. As noted, students should not make travel plans until they have full knowledge of their final examination schedule.
  • Schedules are largely confirmed, although there may be some changes, after the language placement exams (in all but French and Spanish) on September 3rd. 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 classes (September 5th) regarding availability.
  • Students should check the course “Rules” in Add-Drop or Curriculum Search BEFORE attempting any schedule changes. Many courses now require instructor permission and cannot be re-added without authorization if dropped.
  • Students should contact individual instructors directly to request course authorizations or to be added to waiting lists.
  • Alfond Commons (ALCM) “downtown” classes: AM229, EC479, ED331, IT297. Please allow approximately 30 minutes for campus-downtown transit time if you enroll in one of the four classes scheduled in ALCM this fall.
