Second Summer Registration

Important

The deadline to waive out of or apply transfer credit toward a second-summer required course is December 15th. Please be sure to complete the required forms by this deadline.

Second summer registration begins Sunday, March 29th at 3 p.m. EST and ends Wednesday, April 1st at 11 p.m. EST.

Information regarding summer 2015 courses will be posted shortly.

OVERVIEW

 

Before reading specific registration instructions for your class, please make sure you are familiar with the School policies regarding course and graduation requirements as well as general registration information outlined at http://www.smith.edu/ssw/registrar_registration.php. We suggest you read this document through at least once prior to February 21, 2014.

 

BannerWeb Registration Dates

 

Second-summer students will participate in BannerWeb online registration, for electives only, starting Sunday, March 23, 2014, at 3:00 pm Eastern time. Students must have completed the process by 11:00 pm Eastern time on Wednesday, March 26, 2014. OAS staff will be available by phone and email for the first hour of registration on March 23 to answer questions (but please direct technical questions to ITS, which will also be staffed - (413) 585-4487). Staff are not able to register students by phone.

 

Second-summer students register for one elective in Term 1 and two electives in Term 2 that do not conflict with the required courses that have already been scheduled. Do not drop, delete or change any required courses on your record. If you do so inadvertently, please notify OAS staff at once by email (sswoas@smith.edu), giving us your 99 number and the course you dropped or changed.

 

You will not be able to register until the dates and times specified above. Although OAS staff will run routine degree audits at the end of each registration period, students bear responsibility for meeting degree requirements. Note that students with holds on their records due to tuition balances owed, library fees, parking fines or late course evaluations will not be able to register until the holds are released by the appropriate office.

 

Changes can and often do occur after registration. If you are registered for a course that changes term or meeting time, OAS will send a notice of the change to you, attempt to register you again in the changed offering, and follow up if there is a time conflict.

 

Technical instructions for second-summer BannerWeb registration

 

Students who Cannot or Choose Not to do BannerWeb Registration

 

If you cannot or choose not to register during the above times, you may fax your prioritized choices - noting the CRN for each course, your name and your 99 number (required) - before 12:00 noon on Friday, March 21, 2014, Attn: Sharyn Zuffelato, or email them to sswoas@smith.edu by the same date no later than 12:00 noon Eastern Time. Both email and fax provide a date/time stamp that will be used to prioritize registration order (but you will lose your priority status if you fail to provide CRNs or 99 numbers!). We are not able to register students by phone. OAS staff will begin registering you at the same time your colleagues begin BannerWeb registration. Be sure to provide a number of alternatives, as OAS staff cannot choose electives for you, and make sure there are no time conflicts in your schedule.

Second Summer Requirements

Listed below are courses second-summer students are required to take. By the time you undertake BannerWeb elective registration, you will already have been scheduled into a random section of each applicable required course. Abbreviations in parentheses represent the Sequence that manages the course. Course descriptions are available by clicking here.

Summer Term 1 Courses

Summer Term 2 Courses

 

Special Circumstances

We understand that childcare, commuting, and part-time work can add stress to your very full academic schedule. If you have special circumstances that you would like us to consider while scheduling your required courses (the registration for which takes place prior to BannerWeb elective registration), please submit your request (click here) to the Office of Academic Support Services (sswoas@smith.edu or fax, (413) 585-7994). Such requests must arrive at OAS by 4:00 pm Eastern Time on Friday, March 7, 2014, in order to be considered.

Electives

As a second-summer student, you need to start meeting the FOAMS (required elective) requirements. You should try to take as many as possible so that, by your third summer when the process is very competitive, you will have more options. Courses coded "3rd sum" or "Sr" on elective listings are available to third-summer students only. Open courses for your class will be posted here around mid-March.

A course designated a certain FOAMS category one year (e.g., "F") may be changed the following year by the Chair (to, e.g., "F/S"); the course will only fulfill requirements of the old designation (e.g., "F" in the above example). Note: Designations are in progress in the fall, prior to each term. In late spring, a pdf of active summer elective listings will be published to this website.

Transferring and Waiving Courses

If you have completed course work elsewhere that closely aligns with the description of any of the above required courses and that has not already been transferred to your record, you may petition for transfer credit (see Master's Program Handbook, section 200.12). In order to ensure that you are placed properly in your courses, please submit materials and the form to OAS no later than December 15, 2014. You may also petition to waive a course and replace it with an elective; this deadline is also December 15, 2014. Students should not attempt to transfer and waive the same course. If you are approved for transfer credit or waiver and are already registered, OAS staff will work with you to adjust your schedule.

Forms

 

Please note the deadlines on the forms. Your request has a better chance of being considered if you meet the deadline.
