Spring Schedules

You wanted it and now you can have it!

The Spring 2012-13 class schedule is up on Student Center. To find the schedule you can search in the class search and change the term to 2012-13 Spring Quarter. 

A few things to remember:
  • Some colleges and departments have not submitted schedules or all of their classes, this will come over the next few months.
  • Some classes do not have professors assigned yet; these will be assigned over the course of the next few months. 
  • Class times and professors and rooms are subject to change over the next few months.
  • You can not put classes for spring quarter in your winter quarter shopping cart. 
***It is never to early to start planning for the spring especially after our long Rochester winters.***

How do I Audit a Class? of the questions on student's minds is, "How do I audit a class?"  For those of you that do not know what auditing is: auditing is primarily used in wellness classes and allows students to take a class without receiving a grade.  Most wellness classes are taken either as an audited course or on a pass/fail basis.

In the system you can choose to change the way a class is graded when you get to the course selection step. It is important to remember not all wellness classes are possible to be audited.   See the picture below for details on how to change the grading: 
Now comes the problem some students have with needing to edit classes after they have already enrolled.  In Student Center there is a solution to this without having to drop a class and re-enroll the way you wanted to.  Just follow these steps: 

Step 1: Click Enroll
Step 2: Select the appropriate term (if not already listed as the term for enrollment).

Step 3: Click on the Edit sub-tab.

Step 4: You will be taken to the Edit Class Enrollment Options screen.  Only classes that are available for edit (primarily wellness classes) will be available in the drop down box.  Once you have selected the class that you would like to edit, click "Proceed to Step 2 of 3".

Step 5: You will be taken to the Enrollment Options page where you will be able to change the way the class is graded.

Step 6: Click Next

Step 7: Click Finish Editing.

Hope that helps and make sure you stay tuned on the latest information and updates for Student Center!
