Fall 2013 Registration
Add/Drop Period. The initial registration period for Fall 2013 classes has closed. The registration system re-opened back up on Saturday, May 4th, for students to see what classes they were admitted into, and to make adjustments to their schedules. You may continue to make adjustments to your schedule until the end of the Fall add/drop period on Monday, September 9, at 11:50pm. If you did not register during the initial registration period, you may now do so.
•Initial Reading Assignments and Course Materials. A list of initial reading assignments for Fall 2013 courses will be posted no later than Wednesday, August 7. It will be linked to this page, and will be available on the Fall 2013 Quick Guide page (also available by going to the Current Students page and clicking on the Fall '13 link).
You may ask the bookstore to hold your Fall course materials for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you over the summer. If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, stop by the bookstore before you leave, or call the bookstore at 312/906-5605. In addition, you may order your course books over the Internet by clicking on the Bookstore link on the Current Students page.
Graduating Students: Reduced Loads and Tuition Discounts. Students graduating at the end of the Fall 2013 semester who need fewer than the minimum number of hours to graduate may take fewer credits without special permission. In addition, if you will be graduating at the end of the Fall semester, and will be taking more than the 87 credits required to graduate, you may receive a 50% discount on each credit you take over the required 87 credits. If this affects you, please contact Dean Sowle by email no later than Monday, September 9, and he will arrange for the credit to be applied to your account.
