Course Lottery Updates, CHEM 100-web Information & Updating Information in Banner

June 16th, 2017

Greetings, incoming students!

First-Year Course Lottery The first round of the course lottery closes today at 5PM. Placements from the first round will be viewable next week. If you were not placed in the first round, you will have priority placement in the second round. If you were placed in a CAP course in the first round, you can still select a non-CAP first-year seminar (FYS) in the second round.  The second round will open on Friday, June 23 at 9 am and close on July 5 at 5 pm.

CHEM 100-webCHEM0100-web is a free online tutorial that helps incoming students review general chemistry and practice for the fall chemistry placement exam.  The placement exam is required for any student wishing to take chemistry at Brown, unless you have the appropriate AP score (see Chemistry Department website) or plan to take Chem 0100, a semester-long class offered in the fall semester, followed by Chem 0330 in the spring.  The tutorial is cost-free and is appropriate for students of all backgrounds; you can register for the course any time between June 15 and August 15, using your Brown username and password.

Update contact information in Banner Now that you have activated your Brown account and Google services, there are two more steps to complete in the “Personal Information” area of self-service Banner:

  1.  Enter your personal mobile phone number for emergency communication. The University will use this number to send text notifications of emergency situations and weather closings, or to contact you in an emergency.
  2. Review the email address information for your parent(s)/guardian(s). Please enter accurate email address(es) for your parent(s) or legal guardian(s). The first Parents & Families Newsletter will go out by email early in the summer and then periodically throughout the year. We use the email address(es) you put in Banner for parent/guardian to send these communications.

Upcoming Deadlines:

  • Pre-Orientation Programs – Applications due today (optional)
  • Health History Forms – Due July 1
