Q
Asked by: Danielle
Question: How do you find out your required books before class starts? (I am an international student and won't be arriving until the 26th)

Answer: Hi Danielle! Congrats on becoming a SMUdent! This is a good question and one that I hear often so I am glad that you asked. To find out which books and materials will be used in a class, you will need to check the syllabus for the class. This is a sheet of paper that is usually given out and discussed on the first day of classes. However, keep monitoring your SMU Brightspace account. After this semester is over and the Fall term is about to begin, professors will upload a digital version of the syllabus for you to check so that you can have everything ready to go for the first day! I will say that the first day is more of a review and house keeping class which covers a lot of these necessities and does not require their use. You can wait and get all your books and supplies after this day as well! No need to panic or rush! Good luck in the Fall! You’re going to do amazing things!
