June and July - Check course book lists and buy your textbooks from the Briercrest Bookstore online or in person.

Late August - Download your course syllabi (course guides) from Briercrest Live for each class.

10. PLAN YOUR SEMESTER 
Stay on top of Key Dates and Deadlines - posted below, on bulletin boards around campus, and online
TIP #1: Pay particular attention to the Add/Drop deadline. That’s the last day you can add courses and the last day you can drop them without penalty (academic and financial). It's also the last day you can change your meal plan.
TIP #2: Write all your due dates on a calendar.
TIP #3: Do not schedule travel before your final exams are complete. Exams will not be moved to accommodate your travel plans.
