College Announces Pre-Term Planning

Starting this semester, undergraduates and some graduate students will be required to tentatively declare their course schedules for the following semester months before shopping period begins.

Seniors, who have the earliest deadline, will be required to submit their course plan for spring semester classes by Nov. 3 this year. Juniors must submit their tentative schedules by Nov. 10, while freshmen and sophomores submit their course plans Nov. 17.

The schedules, which are completely non-binding, are meant to offer College administrators some guidance in hiring teaching fellows before the semester begins.

“It’s not registration. You’re not in a class," said Stephanie H. Kenen, the associate dean of undergraduate education. "It’s information for planning purposes. We’re not giving faculty the names of the students."
