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.  
  • Schedule changes MUST be made by students only.  Parents and family members will not be able to make schedule changes for students. 
  • 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 - 19)
