The Office of Advising & Co-Curricular Programs has put together some information and resources that we hope will be helpful as you navigate the first few weeks of the spring semester!
Spring ‘23 Add/Drop Ends February 3rd – Please refer to the Registrar’s Website for add/drop information. At this point, all final requests to add a class require the permission of the professor and schedule changes must be completed online through Banner Self-Service.
Class Dean Support – The class deans are your partners in success, and we have some recent updates
Dean’s excuses – You are expected to meet the attendance and participation requirements for each class. We provide excused absences (dean’s excuses) for extenuating circumstances such as bereavement, family emergencies, or religious observances. Whether you have finalized plans or not, please submit requests for excused absences for spring religious observances as soon as possible!
Academic Resource Hub – The Hub is partnering with 50+ peer educators to provide academic support programming through Supplemental Instruction, Mentored Study Groups and Individual Peer Tutoring. The SI Leaders, MSG Leaders and Individual Peer Tutors will receive orientation training and be establishing their session schedules over the course of the first 2 weeks of classes. Find support sessions in TutorTrac!
Accessibility Services – Students are reminded to request their Letter of Accommodation and follow up directly with each faculty member regarding the accommodations and how the accommodations apply to the course. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
College Transition Workshops – Students can register for an individual or small group time management workshop with Dean Abigail Close. Sessions are designed to review each students’ course schedules and syllabi to better understand how to organize their daily, weekly, and semester plans. The ultimate goal is to have students learn how to visualize their time so they can better prepare for the busy points in the semester.
