After the start of a term, there are three days of Drop\Add. This is a week when any student can fill out a drop\add schedule request form stating what you want dropped or added and why. The forms are also located in Student Services.
There are several opportunities on the ASMS to get help in any subject. There are scheduled labs for almost every subject. Usually they open around 7:00 p.m. and close at 9:00 p.m. from Sunday through Thursday. Groups of students who attend ASMS run these labs for their work service hours. These are students who are proficient in that certain subject area. Study hall is also a vital resource. Every incoming student is required to go to study hall for the first half of their first term. If they have a certain GPA, the student will get a note in their mailbox telling them that they no longer have to attend study hall. However, if they do not have a high enough GPA at that time, they have to continue going to study hall until Student Service deems otherwise.
ASMS requires an Orientation class for new students. All incoming sophomores and juniors are to complete satisfactorily the Orientation Program into which they are scheduled. There are no unexcused absences from an orientation class. Topics for this class include study skills, library research and plagiarism issues, time-management, and stress management.
