Pre-Orientation Schedule Changes

All information regarding schedule changes is subject to change.  As we get closer to August 1st, we will have solidified our options and plans. 

Students wishing to request a change to their schedule before Orientation may do so via phone or email weekdays, August 1st-10th.  

Each student will be treated equally with regard to their course scheduling requests, regardless of how or when you contact us.  Please do, however, keep the following in mind before asking for a schedule change:

  • Do not request changes due to preference of time or professor. You are freshmen, and should expect to have classes anywhere between 8:00 am and 9:00 pm.  We simply do not have the flexibility to move students around for this reason.
  • Write down your questions and requests before contacting us.  This will help us all be more efficient, and to get your schedule questions answered once. 
  • Try to remember that every course you have been enrolled for meets a degree requirement, whether it is core, major, minor or elective.  This means you will likely be in courses your first semester that may not be your top choice, or even in the top three. 
  • Schedule changes MUST be made by students only.  Parents and family members will not be able to make schedule changes for students.  All communication regarding the schedule will be with the student.

To make your schedule change request, please choose one of the options below and follow the directions.  Please do not contact us multiple times, by multiple means.  Choose one and be patient.  We will return your message in a timely manner.
