A note from your advisors  October 2nd, 2015

Dear Ecampus HDFS Community—

As you probably know by now, yesterday a horrendous act of violence was committed on the campus of Umpqua Community College (UCC).  This brutal event left all of us shocked and heartbroken.  We want to take a moment to offer our condolences, thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by the tragedy, particularly to those of you who have taken or are currently taking courses through Umpqua Community College.  Please know that if you are feeling especially distressed you can contact Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) for assistance in locating counseling resources in your area.

CAPS contact information: ;

Phone:  541 737-2131


Go Umpqua Riverhawks!

Need additional course suggestions?  September 11th, 2015

Hello again, Ecampus HDFS students!

Fall term is just around the corner, so here are a few excellent recommendations if you’re still looking for Fall term courses (all three are also bacc core courses):

H 225—SOCIAL AND INDIVIDUAL HEALTH DETERMINANTS (4 credits). This is one of our college’s excellent Public Health courses and would also count towards the Public Health minor (if you’re interested in exploring the Public Health minor please contact Josie right away).

H 333—GLOBAL PUBLIC HEALTH (3 credits). This course could also be used towards the Public Health minor.

WGSS 240—GENDER AND SPORTS (3 credits)

If you still need help working out your Fall term schedule please contact Josie as soon as possible. The term begins Thursday, September 24, so don’t wait!

–Josie and Aaron

Second online section of HDFS 447 now available for Fall term!  September 8th, 2015

Hello, Ecampus HDFS students!

We hope you’ve had a productive and/or restful summer and are looking forward to the start of Fall term. We wanted to let you know that we’ve added a second online section of HDFS 447—FAMILES & POVERTY for Fall term (CRN 21384). HDFS 447 will provide you with 4 of your 11 HDFS Elective credits, and it will also satisfy the Contemporary Global Issues (CGI) Synthesis bacc core requirement. The course includes a 20 hour community service requirement.

We hear wonderful things from students about HDFS 447, so if you’re still trying to find one more upper division HDFS course for Fall term, then please check out HDFS 447.

Hello Ecampus HDFS students—

Due to a glitch in the course scheduling system we have been forced to shut down registration for our Fall 2015 Ecampus HDFS courses (on campus courses are not affected by this issue).  While many of you have already registered for your Fall term online courses, there are Ecampus HDFS majors (particularly Sophomores and Freshmen) who still need to register.  To remedy the situation we have decided to provide individual HDFS course overrides for our Ecampus HDFS students on a first come, first serve basis (assuming you meet the requirements for the course(s) you wish to register for).

This glitch will not affect bacc core Ecampus courses or the “support courses” in your major (such as PSY 201, PSY 202, WR 327, SOC 204, NUTR 225, etc). You can register for any of these courses normally and if you were planning to do so for fall term, please do that. It only affects the HDFS-prefix courses for fall term which include: HDFS 201, HDFS 240, HDFS 311, HDFS 313, HDFS 312, HDFS 314, HDFS 341, HDFS 360, HDFS 361, HDFS 432, HDFS 444, HDFS 447, HDFS 461.

To request an “override” in order to register for your Fall 2015 Ecampus HDFS-prefix courses, please email Shannon Foley ( ) as soon as possible and assuming you meet the appropriate criteria and there is still room in the class for fall term, she will provide you with the override so that you can then register for your course(s).  In your email to Shannon please include your name and student ID as well as the name and CRN of the Fall term course(s) you wish to register for.  Unfortunately we will not be able to provide the overrides over the 3 day weekend (Saturday, Sunday and Monday, May 23rd, 24th, and 25th), but will begin providing them first thing Tuesday morning, May 26th.  Once Phase II begins we will reopen web registration for all of our Ecampus HDFS courses and waitlisting will also begin during that time.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

**Please note that this issue does not impact registration for Summer 2015 courses, only Fall 2015.


Attention Spring, Summer and Fall Graduating Seniors!!!  May 22nd, 2015

Spring term graduation and commencement are coming up quick.  If you plan to attend commencement, please be sure you order your cap and gown through the Beaver Bookstore.  Also, it’s a good idea to schedule a graduation check appointment with me to review your academic record so that you’ll know for sure that you’re ok to graduate.  To schedule an appointment (phone or in person) just call the Academic Advising Office at 541 737-8900.

By now you should have received an email from the College of Public Health & Human Services requesting that you complete the online Graduation Survey for the college.  I strongly encourage you to complete the survey because your responses can help us make sure we’re providing our students with the best resources and support possible.  If you haven’t received the Graduation Survey email yet then please let me know right away.  A bonus is that if you complete the survey you might win either a gift card to the Beaver Bookstore or a CPHHS swag bag!

And finally, CPHHS is hosting a reception on Friday, June 12 (the day before commencement) for all of our graduating seniors, both on campus and Ecampus.  So if you’re in town for commencement, please stop by the Women’s Building anytime between 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm Friday afternoon so that we can celebrate the accomplishment with you.  Ecampus will host a reception Saturday morning before commencement but you need to RSVP: .

Here’s to a successful Spring term!

Fall term registration starts Sunday, May 17. Have you requested your registration PIN yet?  May 6th, 2015

Hello, Ecampus HDFS students!

Fall term Priority registration begins Sunday, May 17. Please check your Phase I and Phase II times and dates through your online services, under “Registration (“Check Your Registration Status”)”.

Please also remember that you need a Registration PIN before you can sign up for your Fall term classes, so if you haven’t already received it please contact me as soon as possible so that you’ll have your PIN in hand when it’s time for you to actually register for your Fall term classes.

Let me know if you have any questions!

2015-2016 Registration PINs are now available!  April 30th, 2015

Hello, Ecampus HDFS students!

Your 2015-2016 Registration PINs are now available.  You will need the PIN in order to register for your Fall 2015 classes.

You can receive your PIN from me in one of two ways.  First, you can send me an email indicating the courses that you are interested in taking Fall term.  Or, you can schedule an academic advising appointment with me to talk in more detail about your course options.  After I have either received an email from you or spoken to you I will post your Registration PIN at the very bottom of your My Degrees, in the “Notes” section.

To schedule an academic advising appointment just call the Academic Advising Office at 541 737-8900 and let them know you’re an Ecampus HDFS student who needs to get your Registration PIN from me.

–Josie  :)
