Everything you need to know about Spring 2020 add/drop week!

Spring 2020 classes start on Monday, January 13th and the last day to add or drop spring 2020 courses is Sunday, January 19th!  Schedules must be finalized by this date.  Students without holds on their account can add or web drop courses through eServices until 11:59pm.

If you need to drop a class but have a hold on your record that prevents you from doing so: You can drop a class in person at the Student Services Center (Harris Hall, 1st floor) before they close at 4:30pm on Friday, January 17th.  Please arrive early, as there will be a line.  Please note that you will not be able to add courses to your schedule if there is a registration hold on your account.

Not sure if you have a hold on your account?  To check, go to eservices–> student–> registration–> view holds.

To web drop a class through your MyVCU Portal:  Go to eservices–> student-> registration–> add or drop classes–> spring 2020.  Select “web drop” from the drop down menu next to the class you’d like to drop.  Hit the “submit” button.

After making changes to your schedulealways double check your new schedule to make sure it’s correct.  To view your schedule, go to eservices–> student–> registration–> “student detail schedule” (list view) or “week at a glance” (calendar view- make sure to look at a week in which classes meet everyday- January 13th through 17th for example- so all of your classes are correctly listed).

Please note the you will not automatically be dropped from a course due to nonattendance or nonpayment  You must drop the course(s) on your own following the instructions above in order to remove them from your schedule and to avoid being billed for the credits.   Please be aware that to be considered a “full time student”, you must be registered for at least 12 credits.

ENVS walk in hours and advising appointments are held in Lindsay’s office, room 107 of the Trani Life Sciences Building.  Walk in hours for the week of January 13th are listed below.  Starting the week of January 20th, Lindsay’s walk in hours will be held on Tuesdays from 10am-noon and Wednesdays from 1-3pm for the remainder of the spring semester unless otherwise noted.  There will be no walk in hours the week of March 9th.

Upcoming Walk in hours
Tues 1/14 10am-noon
Wed 1/15 1-3pm
Fri 1/17 10am-noon & 1-3pm (ADD/DROP DEADLINE IS TODAY)

Requests for override consideration for ENVS or ENVZ courses must be received by Friday, January 17th at 4pm (email envsadvising@vcu.edu).  There is no guarantee that your request will be granted, but I will do my best.  If a course you are interested in is currently full and you aren’t able to get an override, I recommend that you check eservices several times per day to see if a seat has opened in the course you are looking for.  Please note that I am unable to issue overrides into non-ENVS courses.

Finally, if you miss the add/drop deadline for any reason, email Lindsay as soon as possible with a brief explanation of the situation.
