Shopping Week will take place before classes start, from August 17–21, 2020. You’ll be able to meet with your advisers before Early Shopping begins to plan for the semester. During Early Shopping, you can enroll in open courses, validate your Crimson Cart, and submit petitions to enroll in courses with a lottery or application process. Lotteries will be run and instructors will begin approving petitions once Early Shopping concludes. 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.
