Adding Courses to Your Calendar


Your courses are available as feeds which you can sync to your laptop and mobile calendars. The most efficient way to do this is to first synchronize your course and calendar feeds with your Google@Wharton calendar. Once you've done this the information will automatically show up in your device calendars.

Course Changes

All Course registration information is maintained in the University's Databases. Wharton gets a copy of these registrations each morning, but it can take a day for changes from Wharton's Course Match or other systems to reach the University. Thus, changes to registration information should appear one to two days following the one in which the changes were made. If it has been more than 2 days since changes were made to your schedule, please contact the Student Support Team.
