Greetings! I hope this blog finds you well and ready for all that God has in store for us in the coming months. 2011 has flown by so far in my life and here at CCU. We are ramping up for another very busy season as summer registration opened Monday, March 21st.
If you are a graduating student; Congratulations! You can disregard this blog and find further information on commencement soon.
If you are a new student and have not called to schedule your first advising appointment please do so ASAP. It is very important that we meet to discuss your program and lay out a clear path for your journey at CCU.
You can view and register for all the classes available for summer in Webadvisor. Please jump on this early and don’t wait until the last minute. The implementation of cohorts has limited the course offerings so classes fill up pretty quickly. Those of you who are already in your CORE classes should be able to look at your sequence and see which class you have next. If you need a sequence please let Elizabeth Halsey at firstname.lastname@example.org know and she will be happy to send one out to you.
You can also access your Program Evaluation in Webadvisor to see what classes you still need anytime. You would then take a look in Webadvisor under register for sections/search and register for sections to see what classes are offered and which locations. **When you reach the screen where you enter search criteria please use only TERM, LOCATION, and ACADEMIC LEVEL to search** This is the best way to get the most comprehensive look at what is being offered. If you haven’t done so already please take a few minutes and check out the CAGS homepage.
The College of Adult and Graduate Studies homepage is a wealth of information from academic calendars detailing block starts and registration information, to forms you may need and a complete digital copy of the student handbook. Remember, we function as advisors under the assumption that you have read your handbook and know your rights and responsibilities as an adult student. **The handbook contains important information such as how and when to drop a class: Drop Policy: You must drop a class before the 2nd (in seat) or 7th day (online) if you don’t want to be charged for the class.**
Above all else please remember that Elizabeth is here to help you! If you run into a problem let her know right away as our options are much better with early intervention. We are also available if you are just having a rough day, get discouraged, or need to talk! We understand how life works for an adult student as most of us are or have been adult students ourselves! Working full time, raising children, and going to school…yes it can be done but we need to work together, support one another and stay encouraged!
“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” ~Joshua 1:9~
