Registrar's Notes

June 21, 2010

Summer I

As we move toward the end of the Summer I session, note that grading for Summer I is now open. Grades are due by noon on Tuesday, July 6.


Although Summer I doesn’t end until Wednesday, June 30, we are holding commencement ceremonies this Saturday, June 26. At this point there are 1545 students eligible to graduate this June or August. Here’s the breakdown:

  • 936 bachelors degrees
  • 10   certificates
  • 525 masters
  • 74  doctorates

Looking toward Fall

As we move through orientation, sections are filling and some of you are adding sections for fall. If you are thinking about additional sections, please avoid the Tuesday/Thursday prime time slots, there are very few rooms available during this time. There are rooms open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 to 9:15, and later in the day. The MWF time slots are pretty open, especially at 8, 9, 12 and 1.

Also, if you have any sections on hold, and you know that you are not going to open them, please cancel them now so that we have the room available if needed.

Thanks for your cooperation!
