Notes from SJMC Student Services
Dean’s assistant Mallory Quinn reminds students that the last day to withdraw from a class without a “W” appearing on your transcript is Monday, Oct. 24.
Registration for spring classes will begin Monday, Oct. 31. Keep an eye out for an email from your adviser, or a sign on your adviser’s office door, to sign up for an advising appointment prior to registration. If you don’t know who your adviser is, see Mallory in Mer. 119. A special group advising session will be held for first-year students in Professor Wright’s JMC 30 class.
Mallory has also prepared some new time-management and course scheduling tools to help you keep track of your academic requirements. Find them outside her office.
