2012 Summer Term Calendar
The Summer Term consists of three primary
sessions: first session, second session, and a full session. There are also shorter and longer sessions to accommodate
the particular needs of the various instructional units such as SMU-in-Taos, International Programs and Perkins School of Theology. Check the schedule of classes for dates and times.
Some areas of instruction may offer a limited number of selected courses
during the May term period, May 11 -29. Each May term course may have
unique start and end dates within the May 11 - 29 term to accommodate the
particular needs of the course. In addition, the SMU-in-Taos program
offers both a May and August term. For more information about the SMU-in-Taos
program, please visit www.smu.edu/taos.

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

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

Students on Merit or Need Based Financial Aid: If a
drop will take you to fewer than 12 hours, you should

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
