Once you are assigned to a Learning Community, you will be automatically enrolled in the course that is required for your Learning Community. Please check with your academic advisor/faculty director if this creates a conflict with your academic major's course requirements.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Will I speak with a member my college about academic advising?
Yes, students will connect with their academic unit for an overview of their academic program and curriculum, and will discuss their specific courses with an advisor before registering for classes. In addition to academic advisors, LC staff will be available to answer questions about the LC courses.
I see I have a couple courses but not a full schedule. Should I be concerned?
No need for concern. At UVM we pre-register students for courses they are required to take (because of their major, Learning Community, varsity sport, etc.), in order to simplify course registration. When students will review their fall schedule with their advisor, identify any courses to add or adjust, and then complete their course registration with advisor assistance. .
I don’t see any courses other than my LC course, but my friends have more classes.
Again, no worries. Some academic tracks don’t have a block of required first-semester courses. You will work with your advisor to build your fall schedule.
I am concerned about my course/credit load for fall semester. How many credits is too many?
Since each student is an individual, and each academic path and campus experience is unique, you will have a chance to talk about this with academic advisors to better understand your options and decide what’s best.
I already have 17 or 18 credits and am worried about the LC course.
The Learning Communities are working with academic advisors to ensure you will not be overloaded.
I don’t see an LC course but got a welcome letter from XYZ community.
Some students’ course schedules are more complicated than others due to required courses. During our initial pre-registration, the LC course occasionally conflicts with other required classes. We will work to resolve these issues; each LC has a wide range of course meeting times and we anticipate resolving almost all conflicts. If for some reason your LC course conflicts with your required courses and we cannot resolve the conflict, we will work with you to remain in the LC and participate as a community member, but waive your LC course requirement.
If I “trade spaces,” how will this impact my course schedule?
If you participate in Trading Spaces and are assigned to another LC, we will work with you and your academic unit to be sure you are enrolled in the correct LC course.
