Add/Drop Deadline!

Don't let this happen to you!!!

Add/Drop ends on Monday.  Right now you can log into SPIRE and make changes to your schedule, but when Add/Drop ends, you will no longer be able to do so and will have to use a paper process to make requests and get permission.  Look at your Enrollment Appointment to see when you will no longer have access to make changes.

Right now you should log on to SPIRE and look at your schedule.  Are you really in the classes you think you're in?  Are all of your discussions and labs correct?  Did you add a class that's not there or drop something that still is there?  Even if you haven't made any changes to your schedule, you should still check to make sure everything is correct.  If you do need to make adjustments, use the swap and edit functions whenever possible.

Not attending a class doesn't mean you've dropped it! And remember, should you decide to add a class at this point, you will be responsible for any work that has been assigned and you should contact the instructor immediately.

As always, if you have any questions about your schedule, you should see an advisor. Undeclared students can set up an appointment by calling (413) 545-2191 or coming to 613 Goodell.  You can also stop by the Academic Advising Link to talk to a Peer Advisor about your classes.  The Link is open Sunday through Thursday from 4:00pm - 8:00pm while classes are in session and is located downstairs in the Learning Commons in the DuBois Library.

A note about Pass/Fail: You have until the Mid-Semester W date (Thursday, October 17) to change a class to Pass/Fail.  After Add/Drop ends, you'll need to go to the Registrar's Office in Whitmore to fill out the Course Change Request form.  You do get credit for Pass/Fail classes if you pass but they do not fulfill requirements (GenEds, major, minor, certificates, GlobalEds, etc.), so make an appointment to meet with an advisor if you're not sure how this will affect you.
