AUDITING A FIVE COLLEGE COURSE
At Amherst, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges:
DO NOT request the course online. An audit is a special arrangement between the student and the professor. The audit will not be recorded at Hampshire or at the other colleges.
At the University of Massachusetts:
By the end of the add/drop deadline, request the course online via TheHub, print out a permission form with AUDIT clearly written in large print at the top of the form, and submit the signed Five College request form to the central records office.
TAKING A FIVE COLLEGE COURSE PASS/FAIL
You must first request any Five College course online via TheHub. During preregistration, submit signed forms to central records for any courses listed as requiring instructor permission. During add/drop submit signed permission forms for ALL courses.
Some of the other schools require you to declare a pass/fail option by the end of their own interchange periods, which can differ from Hampshire's interchange period. Check the Five College calendar for these dates.
TO DECLARE A PASS/FAIL OPTION AT:
By the end of the Amherst College interchange period, request the course as usual via TheHub and:
