UPDATED Sep 3 to add mods for dormies to dress for class.

Maybe I went to a strange university, but I can't say I remember students ever showing up to class in their underwear or PJs.

These mods forces students to change to their everyday outfits before going to class or finals. Note that it forces the change even if the student is wearing formal or gym clothes, which would be appropriate clothing for class, because I'm too lazy to check for that

There are three files here. You will need (at most) two of them.

"DressForClass" affects ONLY playable sims and can be used with any assortment of expansion packs

"DormiesDressForClass" affects ONLY dormies. Use this version if you DON'T have Open For Business
"DormiesDressForClass-OFB" affects ONLY dormies. Use this version if you DO have Open For Business

INSTALLATION: Unzip each downloaded file and put the package file in your Downloads directory or any subdirectory under Downloads

COMPATIBILITY: You need University, of course. See above for which file to download depending on which other EPs you have.

KNOWN BUGS: Not a bug exactly, but for some reason dormies don't fade out as they leave the lot. They just blink out of existence, then blink back in when they come back. It seems to be only a cosmetic problem and I have no idea what causes that or how to fix it.

KNOWN CONFLICTS:
DressForClass - no conflicts
DormiesDressForClass (both versions) - conflicts with my own "TruantDormies" and twojeff's "Students Move Away From The Portal" and can't be used with either of them.

** just my 2 cents, ignore it if you wish, rant if you must, but please use the common sense one assumes you were born with **

Heh, cute idea. Maybe you did go to a 'strange' university because I think it's fairly common for many uni students to go class in their jammies. Heck, I went to NYU, which is in a major urban city (NYC, duh), and plenty of people had a tendency to just roll out of bed in the mornin and run to class late, wearin whatever they managed to fall asleep in. :p

LOL @ Kitiara. I guess your sims uni is very progressive. Definitely seems like it'd be a fun place to go to. Hee hee.

Does this affect the dormies also? From what I've observed last night, I didn't notice any dormies changing. Of course, they were already dressed in everyday wear. I did have one dormie who never changed; she left a few times in her pj/undies. I only played a few days in one Uni lot so I'll have to do more testing.

Ah, good point. I use my "Dormies Don't Go To Class" mod so I hadn't considered dormies. They use a different routine for going to class, but it should be easy to add the same commands to their routine. I'll see if I can get that up over the weekend.

Would it be possible to make it so that they change into a uniform, such as the teens and children did when they'd go to the private school?

I added mods to force dormies to dress for class. These are not extensively tested, as I don't allow my dormies to go to class. I made them separate from the original mod because the dormie versions conflict with other mods. Let me know if you have any problems.

*ahem* OK, I actually ADDED the new mods to the original post this time, rather than just claiming I did...

Haha, I also went to class in my pj's. I will never forget freshman year, my 8:00 sociology class, there was this kid who wore this Hugh Hefner-esque robe to class over his pj bottoms. It was his only morning class, so instead of getting up and getting dressed, he just made it through soc then went back to bed

I won't be picking up Seasons for at least six months and probably more like a year. I'll probably update it at that time, but that's a long wait.

If you thought this is bad, you should have seen them go to class naked ... everyone was shocked ... Good idea with this hack! Thanks!!!
