There are two ways to access your student class schedule. The first method allows you to quickly see your courses in your web browser, while the second allows you to see your courses in the calendar application of your choice.

IMPORTANT: Please be aware that these class schedules DO NOT take into account the existence of holidays or shifted days (such as a Tuesday following a Monday schedule). In other words, these class schedules will show your Monday classes every Monday for the whole semester, which may not be 100% accurate. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for all holidays and shifted days.

Downloading your schedule

It is now possible to download an .ICS file of your class schedule which can be imported into many popular calendar applications.

You may need to restart Thunderbird after installing Lightning.
