Happy Summer!

CONGRATULATIONS - by now, you've finished with your finals and the academic year!

Enjoy your summer fully . . . and here are a couple of (small) reminders to carry you through August:
  • check SPIRE to make sure your contact information (home and cell phone numbers, etc) is correct and current (campus profiles>student contact information)
  • read (and respond, if requested) to UMass email - remember, this is the University's official means of communication with you!  
  • if you're hoping to gain access into specific courses, check SPIRE regularly, and if you're making changes, use SWAP, so you don't risk losing a seat in a class
Undergraduate Advising will remain open throughout the summer, although during New Student Orientation days, we will have very limited staff available.  Have a question or want to come in to talk with an advisor?  Call 5-2191 to set up a time.

Check Your Grades - JUNE 1ST!

Grades should be posted on SPIRE on June 1st! Be sure to check yours immediately under "Academics."

If you are subject to any academic discipline, you'll want to be sure to check deadlines for getting in appeals.

If you are still looking for courses for the Fall, keep checking SPIRE as much as you can. As grades come out, people will be changing their schedules around and classes might open up just when you need them to.

And, as always, please do see an advisor if you have any questions!
