Welcome to the Dartmouth Institute for Writing and Rhetoric Spring 2017 First-year Seminar switch survey.

If you want to switch between Spring 2017 First-year Seminar courses, and there is not space open in the FYS course you want, please fill out this survey.

This is meant to be a tool to help students find a person to switch with, but it is not a guarantee that we will be able to help you switch FYS courses.

By filling out this survey, you are agreeing to give us permission to reveal your contact information to another student if they have a matching desire to switch courses, in order to facilitate the two of you contacting each other.

If someone else fills out the survey who wants to switch FYS courses with you, we will contact the pair of you by email, and you can coordinate with each other to accomplish the switch as soon as possible after you hear from us.

In the meantime, you should:

* make sure you are enrolled for a First-year Seminar course that is a viable backup option for you, because there is not guarantee that you will succeed in switching FYS courses

* continue to attend the First-year Seminar course you are currently enrolled in, and do the work for the class, because there is no guarantee that you will succeed in switching FYS courses.

* continue to check for yourself to see if a space has opened up in the FYS course you want. If you see an open space, you need to switch yourself into it ASAP using BannerStudent online.

If you need to send me a message canceling your switch request, please use the notes section in Question 5 of the survey. Questions 1 & 2 are required information.

The switch survey will open on February 23 and will close on Wednesday, March 29.

We will email people who match up on a first-come first-served basis.

If you don't hear from us, we have not identified a match for you yet.
