Add-Drop is now over for the Spring 2015 semester

Monday, February 2 was the last day to be able to add a course for the semester, or to be able to drop a course without a “W”.  If Wiser shows that you are still on a wait list for the spring semester, you can either drop yourself from that wait list, or not – it actually doesn’t matter at this time since Wiser will no longer be adding students to courses from the wait list through it’s automated process.  If you are still on a waitlist, you should also stop attending that course (if you haven’t stopped already).

The next chance to register for classes that you might not have gotten into this semester is on Monday, April 6 for Summer 2015 and Fall 2015 courses. Best wishes for a great spring semester!

Comments Off on TODAY is the Last Day of Add/Drop

TODAY is the Last Day of Add/Drop

The add/drop period was extended to today, Wednesday, February 4, 2015 due to the blizzard and campus closings last week. There is no additional extension due to the snowdays we had this week.  The College of Management Undergraduate Program Office has also extend our all-day advising walk-in schedule until this date; appointments will resume on February 5.

Our online registration forms for CM courses will be live until 11:59 PM tonight – the same time that you can make registration changes on Wiser on your own. After that time, our office will need instructor permission to enroll you in any CM course. If you submit the registration form before 11:59 PM tonight, we will honor that time stamp and proceed with your request as space and eligibility allows.

If you have any questions about your spring registration or enrollment details, please speak with your advisor.
