Switching my Second Term Courses
I have absolutely no idea how to do this, and I wanna get it out of the way asap. I've got conflicting classes in second term, and any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

It's done the same way you picked classes in the summer, you go to SOLAR and Drop/Add the courses your want.

It's just as frustrating as in the summer too. [I've been having an epic battle with SOLAR for a solid week now]

Try now, but don't get angry if all the courses are full. Just fight your way in to them come January, or speak to an academic councilor

The sooner you get this resolved, the easier it will be on you later.

Come January every one and their mother will be on SOLAR trying to change their courses again.

A great tool that some people over look is the use of the master course time table which can be found here: /mtt/

Essentially you can "build" your own timetable, this is a great tool to see when and where classes are and when classes are available. You can generally build your timetable the way you want. It does take quite a bit of time to make the perfect timetable and also to put in mind availability of the class.
