How can I get an "Add Card" to add a class? 

Students must obtain an "add card" from the instructor of the course on or after the first day of classes.  The Admissions and Records Office does not distribute add cards to students.  There are specific course add deadlines that students should pay close attention to.  Refer to the class schedule or webpage for further information.


Do I need my books for the first day of class? 

It's not mandatory to have them the first day, but we strongly suggest you purchase them early.  Here are some good reasons to buy them early:  Avoid the long lines the first week of class; more selections of used textbooks are available before classes start; used books cost less; sometimes books are sold out early and you have to wait a number of days or weeks for the order to come in; and there are alternative locations and web sites to buy books.  But you are subject to shipping time, and could be waiting weeks, so plan ahead for future semesters.
