Midterm grading

For this fall semester, over 9,700 midterm grades were submitted in 305 sections. Thank you to all who submitted midterms, or followed up with students regarding their midterm grade!

In the Spring 2007 semester, midterm grading will begin on February 19th.

Change in the last day for students to withdraw from fall classes

The last day that students can withdraw from Fall 2006 classes has been extended through Friday, November 10th. Students can withdraw from fall classes online, through the registration system, through 11:59 pm on the 10th.

Students with questions on whether or not to withdraw from a class should be referred to their advisor or their instructor. Students with questions on how to withdraw should be referred to the Registrar's Office at 387-4310.

Distance Education courses

Beginning with the Spring 2007 semester you'll see 'WEB CLASS' as the building and room designated for certain Distance Education, DE, courses. These are the 'OLS', or 'Online semester' courses which are entirely online, web courses. The use of 'WEB CLASS' as the location is an attempt to further clarify to students that these are web courses. On the 'BLS' or Blended Learning courses, you may see 'HYBRD CLASS' listed as the location. These BLS courses are a blend of online and inperson instruction.

Upcoming Dates

  • Nov. 10 - Last day for students to withdraw from Fall classes.
  • Nov. 6-17 - Final review of Summer schedules.
  • Nov. 22 - Thanksgiving recess begins at noon.
