We hope you had a great first week of classes! The Office of Advising & Co-Curricular Programs has put together some information and resources that we hope will be helpful as you navigate the next few weeks.
Let us know if you are having challenges at any point in the semester (e.g. absences, missing assignments, or stress). Meetings with us early on in the semester allows us to connect you with appropriate resources such as counseling, accessibility services, and workshops on time management and study skills.
Please contact Bailey’s Health Center if you are requesting a dean’s excuse for health-related reasons. You will not receive a dean’s excuse for COVID-related reasons. Instead, we will notify professors when you are not cleared and cleared to attend classes.
In any other situations where you are not provided a dean’s excuse, or they do not fall within the designated categories, we encourage you to communicate directly with your professor.

Meanwhile, we are looking for Conversation PARDners for the current year. If you are a native English speaker and interested in helping the incoming international students, please read this Call for Application message for details. If you are planning to apply for a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship as a senior or down the road, serving as a Conversation PARDner is great experience and will even open your eyes to different cultures without having to leave the US.
We will send additional communications around the midterm and final examination periods. Until then, please let us know whether you have questions!
Here’s to a great spring semester,
Office of Advising & Co-Curricular Programs
