A students schedule must be finalized by the end of "shopping period". Students must use Virtual Bryn Mawr to add courses, drop courses, and change your registration during Shopping Week. Instructions can be found on the Registrar's site.
Student’s should be to drop any courses she was lotteried out of and any others she no longer plans to attend and replace them with alternatives.
During Shopping week, students should continue to use Virtual Bryn Mawr to add and drop themselves from courses to reflect their emerging schedule. Please remember that adding a course online does not guarantee you a seat in the course. If you would like to add a course during shopping week, professors' must give you permission to add the course. This may happen a few ways:
If you are confused about your status in any particular course, you should attempt to get an answer from the faculty member. You may also consult your Dean about the best way to proceed.
Students have until the end of the 1st week of the quarter to drop a quarter course. Quarter courses cannot be considered 5th courses for 5th course drops. Drops after the first week are considered withdrawals.
Students may also drop a fifth course any time up until the end of the third week of class. Virtual Bryn Mawr will not permit such changes after Confirmation of Registration. Students should come to the Dean's Office on the Lower Level of Guild where they can fill out a "Fifth Course Drop Form" and leave it for their dean to review and sign. No appointment is necessary.
Students that drop courses after the appropriate deadline are considered withdrawn from the course and a WD will appear on the student's transcript. All drops after the end of Confirmation of Registration should be submitted on a paper drop form available at the Dean's Office.
Students are responsible for reviewing their own schedules in Virtual Bryn Mawr prior to the end of the term. If your registration does not match the courses you are attending (even if the professor knows you are in the class), please see your Dean to add and drop the appropriate classes. Check that:
If a course isn't on your schedule that you are attending, your professor cannot submit a grade for you and you cannot receive credit. If a course is listed that you are no longer attending, even if you only shopped it, be sure to request a drop as soon as possible, so you do not receive a failure (0.0) in the course. Final reviews of your schedule should take place at least two weeks prior to the end of the semester.
