You alone are responsible for your class registration. With few exceptions (for example, music performance courses), only you can put yourself in a course and only you can take yourself out.

See the registrar's website for information about registering for courses and registration deadlines.

Confirmation of Registration

You can confirm the courses you are registered in by looking at your student detail schedule on BannerWeb. Speak to your class dean immediately if you are registered for a course you are not taking.

Please note: Enrollment on Moodle does not mean you are officially enrolled in a course. If you do not see the course on BannerWeb you are not registered.

Changing Registration

You may change your registration online for the first 10 business days of each semester during the Add/Drop period by logging in to your Banner account.

Adding a Class in the Third Week

Up until the end of the third week of the semester you may add a course with the Add/Drop Form (located on the registrar's website). You will need the signatures of your instructor and your adviser. Be aware that the instructor can refuse to allow you to join a class late.

Adding a Class After the Third Week

After the end of the third week you must use the Petition form to add a class and explain why you are adding the class late.

Change of Grading Option

To change the grading option of a Smith course from a letter grade to Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U), or from S/U to a letter grade, complete the Change of Grading Option Form. You may change the grading option of a course until the end of the ninth week of the semester.

Dropping a Class

You may drop a class until the end of the fifth week with the Add/Drop Form (located on the registrar's website) as long as you remain in 12 credits for the semester and at least 8 credits are on the Smith campus, or, for Adas, half of your credits are on the Smith campus. You will need the signatures of your instructor and adviser before submitting the form to the class deans office.

Free Drops

A free drop allows you to drop a class from your record a full semester course in the current semester up until the end of the ninth week of classes. You must consult with and obtain the signatures of the course instructor, your adviser and the appropriate class dean in order to use the free-drop option by the appropriate deadline (posted on the registrar's page). You are allowed two opportunities to free drop a course during your time at Smith: once during your first year (if you do not use it, it disappears), and the the second may be used in any semester after your first year.

No late forms will be accepted. You may not free drop a course if it results in your being enrolled in fewer than 12 credits. The free drop form is available in the class deans office.
