which need to be cleared prior to your enrollment.
Check Access.SMU for
course availability at (http://access.smu.edu), by using Class
Search. For a listing of courses in the General Education
Curriculum, click here. For a
copy of a Trial Schedule to assist you with schedule planning,
students must meet with an academic adviser prior to enrolling for a
term for assistance in planning majors and minors and scheduling
courses that will count towards their graduation requirements.
Failure to meet with the academic adviser prior to enrolling for a
term may result in sanctions. After the initial required advising
session for the term, students are encouraged to seek assistance
from their academic adviser when considering adding and dropping
courses. Students have the final responsibility for the accuracy of
their enrollment, the applicability of their courses towards their
degree requirements, and their academic performance.
Athletes: Consult with the Athletic Compliance
Office prior to attempting to drop a course to review
the effects the drop might have on your athletic
participation and aid. After the consultation, the
Compliance Office will update Access.SMU to allow you to
process the drop through self-service should that be
your decision. The consultation is advisory, and the
choice to drop a course is yours to make. If you
need assistance regarding your scholarship or other
aspects of being a student athlete, contact Dave Wollman,
Assistant Athletic Director for Student-Athlete
International Students: If a drop will take you to
fewer than 12 hours, you should consult with the
International Center prior to attempting to drop a
course so that any effects to your immigration status
can be discussed with you. After the consultation, you
can process a drop through self-service in Access.SMU
should that be your decision.
Students on Merit or Need Based Financial Aid: If a
drop will take you to fewer than 12 hours, you should
consult with your financial aid adviser prior to
attempting to drop a course. Your financial aid adviser
will be able to tell you any effects the drop will have
to your aid. After the consultation, you can process a
drop through self-service in Access.SMU should that be
your decision. If you have any questions regarding
this procedure or your financial aid, contact Marcia
Miller, Associate Financial Aid Director.
