Classes that use several rooms during the semester will have their final examination in the room in which they hold their first class of the week.
CONFLICTS: Every attempt has been made to make this schedule conflict-free. If a student has two examinations scheduled at the same time or more than three examinations in one day, the student should try to resolve the conflict with the instructors involved.

It is the student’s responsibility to notify the professor involved prior to exam time and supply the professor with a written medical excuse.

SCHEDULING INFORMATION – Undergraduate Students
Part of your obligation in pursuing a program of study is the careful planning of your program, including the selection of courses. Your academic advisor is your resource for assistance and counsel. You should have a long-term plan of study which includes courses that need to be taken in each succeeding semester. As you move through the plan of study, remaining courses will need to be planned with greater precision. By the time you have earned eighty (80) credits, a final plan of study (80-HOUR REVIEW) for your remaining terms at the University should be reviewed with your advisor. Keep such documents in a safe place.
- For the WINTER SESSION AND/OR SPRING SEMESTER, select the course(s) you need from the class schedule on S.C.O.T.S.
- Check your registration status on S.C.O.T.S. several days before scheduling. If there are any holds from parking tickets, library fines, etc. on your record preventing registration, you must clear them.
- Meet with your academic advisor prior to the day assigned for scheduling your classes to develop a class schedule, alternate courses, and obtain your Alternate PIN. The Alternate PIN, which is equivalent to his or her signature, is needed to schedule on S.C.O.T.S. Obtaining the Alternate PIN verifies the undergraduate student has received sufficient advice to schedule for the next academic term. For these reasons, only your advisor or department chairperson can provide the Alternate PIN. Please note that the Alternate PIN is different from the PIN needed to login to S.C.O.T.S. The student determines the PIN –the University determines the Alternate PIN. Please be sure to record your Alternate PIN so you can make adjustments to your schedule through the Add/Drop period of that semester.
- Use S.C.O.T.S. to schedule. These dates are listed on the scheduling date calendar, as well as on the S.C.O.T.S. page of your personal record. To schedule students fairly and to ensure you are scheduled promptly, there can be no exceptions to this schedule.
- To finalize or secure your registration for the class schedule you create during scheduling, you must complete your financial arrangements, E-Reg, and attend your classes the first day. Failure to do so could result in loss of your class schedule.
INDEPENDENT STUDY, INTERNSHIP, INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION, THESIS
Registration for these courses can be accomplished only after an approved application has been completed and filed with the Office of Records and Registration. Once the completed and signed application is received by the student, he/she must schedule the course with the Office of Records and Registration and make financial arrangements for payment of the appropriate fees prior to the proposed starting date of the course or internship. USE THE APPROPRIATE APPLICATION FORM. REGISTRATION CAN BE COMPLETED ONLY IN THE OFFICE OF RECORDS AND REGISTRATION – NOT THROUGH S.C.O.T.S.
MAJORS ONLY COURSES
Certain courses or sections of courses are indicated as being for majors only. If a student is registered for such a course or section of a course but is not enrolled in the appropriate major, he/she may be required to drop that section. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure he/she is qualified to enroll in such a course. A student who is required to drop a section of a course cannot be given a guarantee of enrollment in another section of the same course.
SCHEDULING ACTION DATES – SPRING SEMESTER

S.C.O.T.S. can now be used to withdraw from a course from January 24 – April 1, 2011. You must have your Alternate PIN, just as you would to add or drop a course. There is a $25.00 fee to withdraw from a course, which is added directly to your financial account with the University. A grade of "W" will be posted to your academic record.
Individuals desiring to withdraw from or drop all courses and leave the University, will be able to do so via the S.C.O.T.S. system, during the first 10 weeks of the semester. Students are still encouraged to carefully consider such an important decision and its impact on their academic career and financial aid status and to consult with appropriate faculty or staff prior to submitting their withdrawal request on S.C.O.T.S. If a student plans to withdraw during the last five weeks of the semester, the student must meet with the Assistant Vice President of Financial Aid, the Bursar, or the Registrar, located in Hamilton Hall, to discuss their request. During the last five weeks of the semester, or the equivalent period during a summer session, students will receive grades of WP (withdraw passing) or WF (withdraw failing). If a student officially withdraws from all courses and wishes to return to the Unviersity at a later date, the student must then apply for reinstatement through the Office of Records and Registration.
