Review Important Resources:
During the first week of the semester, our Academic and Transfer Advising Team will meet with you to select your classes! You can continue to make adjustments to your schedule by adding new classes to your schedule and/or dropping classes during our Add/Drop Period. This is a good time to review the syllabi for each course and make sure that your course load is manageable. This is also a good time to review if the learning modality is right for you - would this course be better for you if it were online entirely, remote entirely, or perhaps, in-person?
While we recommend that you take this time to make sure your schedule the right fit for you, we also recommend that you’re mindful about when you make these changes. It’s always best to make these early in the add/drop period, so you aren’t joining any classes too late into the semester. If you are unsure of how to handle this add/drop period, speak to an advisor in the Virtual Advising Center.
- Last day to add and drop Day & Online Classes is September 12
- Last day to add and drop Evening Classes is September 16
If you haven’t done so already, register for classes by visiting our Advising Center!
How to Access Drop-in Advising: We provide daily scheduled drop-in hours on the Wellesley Hills Campus in the Academic Advising, Transfer, and Coaching Commons (Room 111) from 9am-5pm. We also provide daily drop-in hours on our Zoom Virtual Advising Center (VAC).
To Drop-In Virtually: Click on the green button on this page: https://www.massbay.edu/academics/advising during our hours of operation (you must be logged into the center 30 minutes before closing). You will first enter a waiting room, and then when the next available advisor is available you will join their breakout room to connect. As we strive to meet the needs of all of our students during this time, please prepare that there may be a short wait time associated with your visit. Please have your MassBay student ID number ready.
