COSSPP Drop/Add and Fall 2021 Advising Information

Good morning students,

Looking ahead to the Fall 2021 semester, we have two important reminders this week about Fall registration and accessing academic advising services.

Contents:

  1. Course registration for Fall is closed until Drop/Add
  2. Accessing Fall 2021 Advising Services
    • August 9-August 20
    • Drop/Add advising (week of August 23-27)
    • Fall 2021 (post-Drop/Add) advising

Advising Tip of the Week: COSSPP does not assign students to a particular advisor. You have the flexibility to schedule an appointment with any of our advisors, or you can sign in for a drop-in to see the first available advisor. Use this flexibility to your advantage and make sure to meet with one of our COSSPP advisors at least once each semester.

Course registration for Fall is closed until Drop/Add

Open registration for Fall 2021 closed on last Friday, August 6, at 11:50 pm EDT. Schedule adjustments cannot be made until Drop/Add.

Drop/Add opens at 12:01 am EDT on Saturday, August 21, and ends at 11:59 pm on Thursday, August 26. Drop/Add is a time to adjust your schedule if needed and is not the primary registration period. As a result, course availability may be very limited, especially in high-demand and major-specific required courses.

If a class is full, you must wait to see if a spot opens. Your academic advisor cannot add you to a class. Instructors are extremely limited in their ability to approve adding students to full classes.

After Drop/Add ends, students are grade and fee liable for any courses that remain on their schedule. It is your responsibility to verify that your schedule is correct – including having dropped any classes – before the end of drop/add.

Accessing Fall 2021 Academic Advising Services

Resuming August 30, all COSSPP advising services will be accessible through Campus Connect. Our online how-to guide shows step-by-step how to access either scheduled appointments or virtual drop-ins.

All drop-in availability will be virtual, signing in through Campus Connect and meeting with an advisor via Zoom. Drop-ins are available Monday-Friday.
