Don't hop on one of these just yet!

With December right around the corner (seriously, it’s like, what, an hour away?), it means one thing: winter isfinals are coming. As such, we figured it’s a good time to remind everyone of a couple things you might want to do as you’re straightening out your travel plans and working out your schedule for next semester.

Rescheduling your final:

Few things in life are more painful than taking a final right before or (perhaps, if you planned exceptionally poorly) on the same day as your flight home. Thankfully, if you have a final scheduled for December 23rd, you can reschedule the exam for an earlier date. To do so, you just have to fill out this form hidden deep within the Columbia College website. A word of warning; as far as we can tell, only CC students are eligible to reschedule their 12/23 exams.

Additional Registration Dates:

In case you want to distract yourself from stressing over finals, you can always stress over getting into classes next semester. The Registrar sent out an email alerting students to additional registration dates for adding and dropping classes for Spring semester.

I write now to let you know that we will once again be offering you additional registration opportunities prior to the start of the spring 2012 term. These additional registration windows again follow the work and recommendations of the Classroom Committee, chaired by Professor Jean Howard. You will be able to add and drop classes, online through SSOL, during the following days and times:

Monday, December 5th, through Friday, December 9th

Monday, January 9th, through Friday, January 13th

Note that these registration periods will be open to all continuing students and there will be no registration priority on the basis of class standing. The intent of the upcoming registration windows is to ensure that course enrollments are as accurate as possible prior to the start of the spring semester, thus enhancing classroom allocation and TA assignments as well as assisting you in refining your program of study much earlier in the course enrollment process.
