Schedule Changes


Need to request a schedule change?  Please keep the following in mind before asking for a schedule change:

  • Do not request changes due to preference of time or professor. As a freshman, you 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.
  • Try to remember that every course you have been enrolled for meets a degree requirement, whether it is core, major, minor or elective.  
  • For your own confidentiality, and to get you actively preparing for college life where you are responsible for many things on your own, we will ask parents and family members to wait in our lobby while we meet with you.  Please know that we cannot make any schedule changes, or answer advising questions about your academics, unless these come from you directly.   
  • Read through our FAQ's before calling.  Your question may already be answered.
  • Review the Course Table which answers the "Why am I taking this class?" question.

Still have questions or want to request a schedule change?  You can do so before, during or after New Student Orientation. 

Before Orientation (via phone or email, August 1 - 11)
