Registrar's Notes

January 6, 2006

Welcome back! I hope that you all had a restful, relaxing and joyful holiday! I know that next week will be busy for all of us, so these notes are coming today instead of Monday.

  • Drop/adds ends at 11:59 pm on Friday, January 13th.

Graduation items

The April 2006 commencement will be held in the University Arena. Details on times will be coming soon.

February 1st is the deadline for students to apply for Summer I or II graduation. Note that Summer I graduation is July 1st, in Miller Auditorium.

Fall 2006 schedules

The final review of the Fall 2006 schedules will be February 3rd thru the 10th, with all changes due back in the office on February 10th. This is a change from the previous dates. We are in the process of assigning rooms to fall classes. Due to the upcoming renovations in Brown and parts of Korhman, room scheduling is very tight for next fall. Please be as flexible as possible during this next year; classroom space will be much more limited than normal. Brown Hall will be unavailable from the end of April until January 2008.

Please let me know if you have any questions at any time!
