Building Your First Semester Schedule - Spring Students

First Semester Schedule Details 

Merrimack College takes an individualized approach to creating your freshman year schedule. Find the details of how the process works below. 

Welcome to Merrimack College! The Academic Success Center is excited to work on your first semester schedule that not only meets your academic needs, but is also manageable as a new student transitioning to college life.

For students entering Merrimack College in the Spring, your schedule will be created for you by the Academic Success Center, in conjunction with your major department. The Academic Success Center will reach out to you to discuss your course options and academic plans in order to create a schedule that best fits your needs and sets you up for success in your first semester. 

If you have any questions, please contact Laura Priest at 978-837-5278, or email the Academic Success Center at


Placement Tests 

Another key component to building your academic schedule are your Math and Foreign Language Placement Test scores. Both the Math and Foreign Language Placement Tests are available on Blackboard. These exams must be completed before we can create your schedule. If you have any questions regarding the placement tests, please contact us at 978-837-5278 or


Reviewing Your Schedule

You will be notified when your schedule is complete and ready for review. You will receive instructions on how to access your schedule through MyMack. Though it is unlikely that you will need to make any adjustments, you may contact the Academic Success Center at any time to discuss your schedule. 

The Academic Success Center staff will be available to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact us at any time. We are excited to welcome you to Merrimack!
