It’s that time of the semester to begin thinking about course selection and enrollment for the Spring term. Enrollment shopping carts open as of Monday, Oct. 25. You can begin adding courses you intend to register for in your cart. Prior to your enrollment appointment, you should check for any holds on your student account. A hold on your account may prevent you from registering for the upcoming semester. All first-year students have an ADVISING hold on their account in Fall semester which is lifted once you meet with your academic advisor. Second-year and mid-degree holds do not prevent you from registering. All students should log into SIS to check for any holds, and review the instructions for addressing them.
You will be assigned an Enrollment Appointment date and time – follow this path on SIS to find your Enrollment Appointment (date and time): Enroll & Search > Enrollment Dates > Select Term 2021-2022 Fall > Regular Academic Session. Make sure to mark your calendar with your enrollment appointment! Academic Advisors will have “walk-in” appointments over Zoom the week of Nov. 8-12 for brief enrollment questions and concerns. Advising appointments prior to or after enrollment week can be scheduled through the Starfish system. Keep an eye out for an email from your academic advisor for details on how to access walk-ins.
If you are experiencing academic challenges this semester and/or have received academic alerts, your first point of contact should be your course instructor. Utilize your instructor’s office hours for assistance to discuss strategies to improve your performance as well as any resources that are available to support your success. Your academic advisor is also notified about alerts and may offer additional support as well. A list of student resources is available on the University Advising Office website. Please note the last day to drop a course with the grade of “W” is Nov. 5, 2021. Full-time undergraduate students cannot drop below 12 credit hours without special permission from their primary academic program or department leadership, and should plan appropriately to discuss this with both their academic advisor and their Financial Aid counselor in advance of the Nov. 5 deadline.
