I hope this message finds you finishing up the week and looking forward to Thanksgiving recess. I also want to remind you about two important deadlines coming up next week.
The deadline to withdraw from full-semester and second-quarter classes for the Fall 2020 semester is Tuesday, November 24 at 5:00 p.m., EST. If you need to withdraw from a course, please send a group email to the instructor, your faculty advisor, and your class dean, and attach a withdrawal form. Remember to complete your portion of the form, including your visa status and course information before you save it and attach it to your email.
If you are thinking about withdrawing from a course:
- Do use this time to talk to your professors, your advisors, and your class dean about your concerns.
- Do make sure you are taking advantage of all the resources available to you.
- Do not wait until Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. to seek advice from your instructor, advisor, or dean because you probably won’t hear back from them until after the deadline has passed.
Additionally, the last day to change the grading mode for courses with the student option for the Fall 2020 semester is also Tuesday, November 24 at 5:00 p.m., EST. Remember, courses that are listed as graded (i.e. A-F) or CR/U are not eligible for a change in grading mode.
All my best,
