  • Check my.SMU http://my.smu.edu for your enrollment appointment time and any service indicators (holds) which need to be cleared prior to your enrollment.

  • Check my.SMU for course availability at http://my.smu.edu, by using Class Search. For a listing of courses in the General Education Curriculum, click here. For a copy of a Trial Schedule to assist you with schedule planning, click here.

  • All undergraduate students must meet with an academic adviser prior to enrolling for a term for assistance in planning majors and minors and scheduling courses that will count towards their graduation requirements. Failure to meet with the academic adviser prior to enrolling for a term may result in sanctions. After the initial required advising session for the term, students are encouraged to seek assistance from their academic adviser when considering adding and dropping courses. Students have the final responsibility for the accuracy of their enrollment, the applicability of their courses towards their degree requirements, and their academic performance.

    1. Student Athletes: Consult with the Athletic Compliance Office prior to attempting to drop a course to review the effects the drop might have on your athletic participation and aid. After the consultation, the Compliance Office will update my.SMU to allow you to process the drop through self-service should that be your decision. The consultation is advisory, and the choice to drop a course is yours to make. If you need assistance regarding your scholarship or other aspects of being a student athlete, contact Dave Wollman, Assistant Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Development.

    2. International Students: If a drop will take you to fewer than 12 hours, you should consult with the International Center. After consultation, the International Office must modify the minimum hours in order for international UG students to drop below 12 hours for the spring or fall term. Failure to maintain full-time hours may result in deportation.

    3. Students on Merit or Need Based Financial Aid: If a drop will take you to fewer than 6 hours, you should consult with your financial aid adviser prior to attempting to drop a course. Your financial aid adviser will be able to tell you any effects the drop will have to your aid. After the consultation, you can process a drop through self-service in my.SMU should that be your decision. If you have any questions regarding this procedure or your financial aid, contact Cindy Luetzow, Associate Financial Aid Director.

  • All students are to provide the University Registrar a current home and mailing address, telephone number (cell number, if available), and emergency contact (including a missing person contact). Under Personal Information on my.SMU, all students must provide accurate information as requested.

    After verifying this information in each of the requested areas, the student must check the appropriate box to indicate that the information has been updated and verified. At that time, a date will appear indicating that the information had been verified and/or updated.

    It is very important that all students go into my.SMU http://my.smu.edu under Personal Information and check the accuracy of this information. If this information is not verified in a timely manner, a HOLD might be placed on student accounts for any future enrollment terms at SMU.

    University policy requires that all students have current home address (local), mailing address, and telephone information on file as well as a cell number, if available. Students may have other address types on file, including a residence address where you are currently living (street number, street name, city, state --- a P.O. Box is not valid for this address type).

    INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS are required to have a home, mailing, and residence address.
