Dear Students,

Welcome back! This is your reminder to review your enrollment information in SIS, including your class schedule and grading options. 

Important info:

Last day to ADD classes: Tuesday, Sept. 5.

If you want to add a class to your schedule, you have until 11:59 p.m. EDT on Sept. 5.

Last day to DROP classes: Wednesday, Sept. 6.

In most undergraduate classes, Sept. 6 is the last day you can drop a class from your schedule. The last day to drop a class in the School of Engineering and Applied Science is Tuesday, Oct. 10. You may also click the following link for more information about fall enrollment.

Check (and recheck!) your class enrollment information in SIS.

Carefully check your enrollment information before the add/drop deadlines. Pay special attention to your grading option for each class. Most of your classes should be taken for a traditional grade (A-F), which is the “Graded” grading option in SIS. For questions about a class grading option, please contact your school registrar for assistance. School contact information is available on the University Registrar’s website

Be careful about choosing “CR/NC” as a grading option.

Classes taken for CR/NC meet very few degree requirements. Check with your dean’s office or your school website for more information about your school’s rules regarding CR/NC.

Verify your enrollment in SIS, not UVACanvas.

If a class doesn’t appear in your Class Schedule in SIS, or if you are on the waitlist for a class, you are not enrolled. Do not rely on UVACanvas to verify your enrollment details. SIS is what counts!

The first weeks of the semester can be stressful, as well as joyous. Please pause to take a deep breath from time to time, enjoy the moment, and remember that we’re all here to learn and grow together. Let us know if you need us. You can reach our team at [email protected] or 434-924-4122.

Kind regards,

Laura F. Hawthorne
Associate Vice Provost for Enrollment and University Registrar
