With a winter storm impacting the region over the next few days, the College will extend the add/drop period for the spring semester by one day, to midnight on Monday, February 1, 2016. This means students have through Monday evening, going into Tuesday, to adjust their spring semester course schedules.

The extension will provide students who arrive on campus after classes have begun, especially those who are registered for a Mondays-only class, with an additional day in which to make changes to their spring class schedules.

Best wishes for a smooth and productive semester.
