Frequently Asked Questions

You'll be required to either meet or otherwise communicate with your Academic Advisor or attend an academic advising event at least once per semester to discuss your graduation path, educational goals, and be permitted to register for classes in the following semester. You can also make academic advising appointments via the MyLIM portal at any time.


In addition to the official course catalog, you'll be provided with a curriculum check sheet for your degree and major. This document outlines what courses you need to take to graduate. We strongly encourage you to work with your Academic Advisor to develop a specific graduation plan.


New students sign up for a “New Student Scheduling Day” through the Office of Admissions. At this event you'll be introduced to the Office of Academic Advising and receive a personalized curriculum check sheet and get help with registration. Current LIM College students should make an appointment to meet with their Academic Advisor. After discussing their plans with an Academic Advisor, students are permitted to register through SONIS (LIM College's student information system). (You must be cleared by the Office of Student Financial Services and the Office of Academic Advising in order to register for classes.)


The Add/Drop period is the first five days of the Fall or Spring semester where you can make changes to your schedule, including time and day of a class and switching sections of the same class. Check the Academic Calendar for exact Add/Drop dates for the Fall, Spring and Summer.


You can add or drop courses from your schedule through Sonis during the Add/Drop period. You are also welcome to visit the Office of Academic Advising during the Add/Drop period to meet with an Academic Advisor.


The Withdrawal period is when you may formally withdraw from a course or courses. If you withdraw, you'll receive a permanent “W” on your transcript, but it won't affect your grade point average (GPA). The Withdrawal period starts after the Add/Drop period ends and lasts until 4 p.m. on the date designated on the academic calendar.
