Student Curriculum Guide

For International Exchange Students and International Guest Students

We are delighted that you will be joining the Mount Holyoke College community and look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus. We hope that you will keep us in mind as resources during the weeks leading up to the start of classes and throughout your time at the College.

On the website for New Students you will find links to information about course registration, billing, and many other topics. There are also some forms there that you are required to fill out and submit before you arrive at Mount Holyoke. Since you will be assigned an academic advisor, you shouldn't fill out the "Academic Advising" form. The other links on the New Students page feature additional information about college resources, residential life, and other topics of interest.

As you select your courses, keep in mind that you may not be able to register for some of the more advanced courses online, since you have not taken the necessary prerequisite courses. However, if you want to register for a particular course, all you need to do is send an email to Lori Widmer-Hinckley in the Registrar's Office. Lori will add you manually to the class list or, if the class is full, to the waiting list.

Remember also that the courses for which you preregister represent a working draft of your fall schedule. After you arrive on campus, you'll have a chance to discuss your courses with your assigned faculty advisor. Changes to your schedule can be made at this time as well.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us by phone or email. Be assured that we, along with your advisors and professors, will help guide you throughout your year or semester here at Mount Holyoke.

We look forward to meeting you!
