On the recommendation of the faculty-student Committee on Registration, we've adapted shopping period to accommodate the unusual circumstances of this fall. (Here's a discussion of why changes were necessary). Shopping period will run from August 17 to August 21. During this time, canvas sites will be live, syllabi will be posted, and instructors will find some way to give students a sense of their courses—and their teaching styles. Students will register for courses by August 26, and the semester will begin on September 2. After that, students may add or drop courses until October 5.
