Frances Perkins and Transfer Curriculum Guide

To New Upperclass Students

We are delighted that you have chosen to join the Mount Holyoke College community for the next chapter of your educational life and we have created this website to help insure that you are successfully launched in your Mount Holyoke career. 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.

The purpose of this site is to help you select and preregister for your first semester courses. Use the links at left to review information specially prepared for new transfer and FP students about the curriculum, degree requirements, advising, and instructions for preregistration. The First-Year Guide has been created especially for all students new to Mount Holyoke College; please also consult it for additional information about college resources, residential life, and other topics of interest.

Have fun selecting courses now, but keep in mind that the courses you preregister for represent a working draft of your spring semester schedule. During Orientation, you'll have a chance to discuss your courses with your faculty adviser. Changes to your schedule can be made during the add/drop period that begins after you meet your advisor. If you have any questions about transfer credits or any outstanding requirements, please don't hesitate to contact us by phone, email, or in person if you are nearby. Be assured that the academic deans, your advisers, and your professors will help to guide you throughout your intellectual journey here at Mount Holyoke.

We look forward to your arrival on campus!
