Fall 2017 Registration Update (October 2017)

‘X’ Deadline: The last day to opt for a student-initiated withdrawal from a course (“X“) is Thursday 2 November.

Forms for withdrawals are available in the Registrar’s Office and require the signatures of the instructor and your academic advisor. The completed forms must be turned in to the Registrar’s Office by 5 p.m. on Thursday 2 November. Please keep in mind that only one student-initiated withdrawal per student is permitted per semester. If you wish to take a leave of absence from the College (i.e., to withdraw from all classes this semester), please contact the Dean of Students Office.

If taking a student-initiated withdrawal will leave you with fewer than 12 credits for the semester, you are strongly encouraged to consult with Financial Aid and Financial Services before you submit the card.

Graduates of January and May 2018: Check the tentative graduation list.

The Registrar’s Office in Bentley Hall will publish and post a tentative January and May graduation list Monday 16 October through Thursday 30 November. All seniors are responsible for making sure their names are on the tentative list. You may stop in the office on the second floor of Bentley Hall from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekdays to confirm that your name is listed.

Please be aware that if your privacy category is set to “Release No Information,” we are not able to post your name in public. Please stop in to Bentley 210 to discuss what that means for Commencement. You may view your Privacy category under “My Profile” in WebAdvisor. Please see here for a description of the possible privacy categories.

Sign up for GTWY 100 “Pathways”!

Sign up for a “Pathways” experience for the second half of the fall 2017 semester. Who are you and what do you want to become? If you want to explore answers to these questions, sign up today!

This fall, sophomore students (and others) are encouraged to sign up for a new Gateway 100 (GTWY 100) course that explores how to link personal interests and educational experiences to future and professional goals. Students investigate curricular and co-curricular opportunities related to their passions and are provided help in identifying appropriate paths forward that will both enrich and build upon one another. In conversation with faculty and staff facilitators and their peers, students will think about a major and about how to apply their academic training and interests to internships, civic engagement, undergraduate research, and study abroad opportunities.

This one-credit Module B course meets once a week starting the week of October 23.

Contact Professor Patrick Jackson for more information or see one of the people teaching the courses, listed on WebAdvisor.
