It is mandatory for all undergraduate students to check-in at the beginning of both Fall (A term) and Spring (C term) semesters. You may continue to make additional course changes after you check-in. By checking in, you confirm that you will be attending all classes for the Fall 2012 semester. "Check-In" is also your acknowledgment that you will be financially responsible for paying all charges associated with the Fall 2012 semester.
If you do not check-in, you may be dropped from your classes, lose your financial aid and be removed from your housing contract. In addition, all students who do not check-in will have all accounts associated with their email address terminated.
Statement of Student Responsibility: Students who check-in are responsible for familiarizing themselves and for abiding by all institutional policies, procedures and requirements. These include, but are not limited to, add/drop and withdrawal deadlines, degree and major course requirements and payment of all student account charges. You can refer to the Undergraduate and/or Graduate catalogs. Please visit the University Policies Webpage to review policies governing behavior on campus and the code of conduct that all students are expected to observe.
Directory Information: WPI releases Directory Information in various forms. If you DO NOT want Directory Information to be released, you may complete a "Confidentiality Form" and submit it to the Registrar's Office by the end of the first week of classes. Please note: WPI will not sell or give Directory Information for commercial purposes to external vendors who are not affiliated with the institution.
FERPA Policy: At WPI we are committed to safeguarding the privacy of student records in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). Please visit the FERPA Webpage for more information.
