Dear Students,

We are writing with a brief update about the first stage of Fall 2020 pre-registration. While earlier communications indicated that initial course matches would be available this Friday, this day now coincides with a special day of paid time off for University staff, and the matching process is taking slightly longer than expected. Therefore, there will be a brief delay, and your course matches will be visible to you in Banner Self-Service ( by 5PM Eastern Time on Saturday, August 15.

The add/drop period will begin on Monday, August 17 at 12pm using our traditional staggered approach as outlined in the Academic Calendar ( Graduate Students and Senior Undergraduates will be able to add and drop courses beginning on Monday, followed by Juniors on Wednesday, August 19 and Sophomores on Friday, August 21. After the add/drop period begins for each class year, it will remain open until the end of Shopping Period on Tuesday, September 22.

Please note that we have doubled the staggering period between each class year, and shifted the start time to Noon Eastern, in an attempt to help minimize stress and improve accessibility across multiple time zones.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay as we ensure a smooth transition to this new system.
