Helpful Information and Deadlines for Students

Dear Students,

Welcome to all new and returning students! I hope you enjoyed your first week and are settling into the rhythm of your semester. I wanted to take this opportunity to share some information with you that might help make this semester a bit easier for you.

  • Double check your class schedule to be sure you are enrolled in and attending the correct classes. You do not want to be dropped or failed simply because you have been attending the wrong section.
  • Be sure to keep in contact with your faculty advisor or academic advisor throughout the semester. Our job is to not only help you with planning your future classes, but also to help you with other questions or difficulties you may encounter during this current semester. If you are not sure who your advisor is, you can stop by the Welcome and Advising Center and we can tell you.
  • Please download this document for Important Deadlines for the Spring Semester. This can help you better plan for your semester and know when you are able to add, drop, or withdraw from a class.
  • Counseling Services welcomes you to visit privately with a licensed professional counselor for support with personal, social and academic challenges.
