Can you believe it’s May already? Here are some very important dates to keep in mind:

  • Priority Registration – Typically students need a registration PIN to register for Fall term. Priority registration begins May 19th (check your Student Online Services for your specific day/time). It’s time to start thinking about setting up an advising appointment to get your PIN and make sure you have a good 2013-2014 plan.
  • S/U and Withdraw – S/U’ing and/or Withdrawing can be a great strategy to protect your GPA. Typically you can S/U any non-major or minor course. The deadline is FRIDAY, MAY 17th. Contact your advisor to inquire whether S/U’ing or Withdrawing would be a good choice for you!
  • Finals Week – Monday–Friday, June 10–14 
  • SOME FUN IN THE SUN & RELAXATION – shortly thereafter…


Have a great rest of the term!
