New Students – Full Courses and Tips for When to Check Availability

I just wanted to give a bit of insight into how first year courses are monitored by departments and how it conflicts with the time of day when many of you are selecting courses. Most of us leave work before 5:00pm; just when course selection is really getting started by students as you get home from school or work. This may sometimes means that spaces fill up overnight when students are selecting and staff members are not monitoring spaces in courses.

New Students - Is 10 Minutes Enough Time?

Many of you have asked if 10 minutes is enough time to get from one classroom to another. I assure you, I am a slow walker and yes, 10 minutes is enough time to get from one class to another!

Office Closed May 21st

Please note that our office will be closed on Thursday, May 21st as we participate in Spring Academic Open House for our potential incoming students. I apologize for any inconvenience. We will be open again on Tuesday, May 26th.

Current Students – Course Selection

Please note that the last day for current students (everyone except the incoming first year students) to add Summer and Fall courses is Friday, May 15th.

Current students can add Fall courses during the next course selection period for current students, June 1st - June 5th.

Incoming first year students can continue to select courses until Friday, July 3rd.
