Shopping Week will take place before classes start, from January 15–21, 2021. Please note that live Early Shopping events will not be scheduled on Saturday, January 16; Sunday, January 17; or Monday, January 18. You can meet with your adviser before Early Shopping begins to plan for the semester.
During Early Shopping, you can:
- Enroll in open courses
- Validate your Crimson Cart
- Submit petitions to enroll in courses with a lottery or application process
- Explore the early shopping calendar to find events
January 19 is the deadline to enter course lotteries. Because Early Shopping will run through January 21, you can continue to explore courses even as you receive results for lotteried courses. If your petition is approved, you must finalize the enrollment process and register for capped courses.
After you’ve enrolled in your initial set of classes, you’ll still be able to make changes to your schedule through the regular add/drop process. So while your schedule won’t be set in stone at the Enrollment Deadline, it is still an important date because enrollments at the deadline will be used to determine how many sections larger courses have.
