Fall 2013 Enrollment: Are You Ready?

Your Enrollment Appointment is available on SPIRE.  Remember, this is the date and time that SPIRE will allow you to begin enrolling in classes; it is NOT a scheduled appointment with an advisorYou can find your Enrollment Appointment on the right side your SPIRE homepage.  You can (and should!) add classes to your Shopping Cart prior to this date.
What should I be doing right now???

Your Enrollment Appointment will be in April, which is a very busy time in most advising offices.  Meeting with an Advisor now will be more beneficial than waiting until later.  Waiting until last minute to schedule a meeting may mean there are no appointment times available or not having your questions answered until AFTER you've enrolled in classes. Be proactive and make an appointment soon, especially if you need to do some long-term planning. If you're undeclared, call 413-545-2191 to schedule a meeting with an advisor. If you have a declared major, contact the advisor or advising office listed on your SPIRE homepage.

Before setting up an advising appointment, fill out the Advisor Meeting Checklist to get the most out of your meeting!  Click here, print out the form and bring it with you.  

I forgot how SPIRE works.
Do you sort of remember how you registered for your Spring classes but want to make sure you're ready for your Fall Enrollment Appointment? Go to the OIT SPIRE page at  Here you will find information regarding SPIRE, including very helpful videos. 
These are links to detailed explanations of how to add/drop/swap classes as well as adding classes with related components (such as discussions or labs).

And finally...
Are you looking for quick help but don't think you need a full appointment?  The Academic Advising Link is for you!  Our experienced and trained Peer Advisors will help you with SPIRE. They'll talk to you about major requirements, GenEds, grading options and more. You don't need to make an appointment - just stop by!  The Link is open Sunday through Thursday from 4:00pm - 8:00pm.  We are located downstairs in the Learning Commons in the DuBois Library.
