All graduation applications have been processed. If you were not contacted by me, your application has been moved to "Tentative". This means you have all the correct courses and the right amount of credits; all that is left is for you to successfully complete your current courses and have a 60% cumulative average. Enjoy the rest of the semester and good luck on exams!

New Students - UPDATE: ENVS 1030: Full Working Sections

UPDATE: New spaces have been opened in ENVS 1030, including a new section.

We are aware that ENVS 1030 sections have limited to no working spots for the EM students. In order to evenly distribute students among labs, we will not open new spots until more of the open spots fill. This ensures that the current spots can be filled by students in another program who can fit in those lab sections. In the meantime, please select your other courses in anticipation that there will be new spaces available soon.

Applying to Graduate

For those of you who are going to complete your courses in August, you need to apply to graduate by June 18th, 2015 to avoid a late penalty. You would have already received an email from the Registrar’s Office with instructions if you will complete 20.00 credits this semester. Please refer to the information on the graduation webpage for more information about the process (under "Current Students", select "Graduation" on the right hand side).

New Students - UPDATE: ENVS 1030: More Spots to Open Next Week

We are aware that ENVS 1030 sections have limited to no working spots for the EM students. In order to evenly distribute students among labs, we will not open new spots until early next week so the current spots can be filled by students in another program who can fit in those lab sections. In the meantime, please select your other courses in anticipation that there will be new spaces available next week.

New Students – Full Courses and Tips for When to Check Availability

I just wanted to give a bit of insight into how first year courses are monitored by departments and how it conflicts with the time of day when many of you are selecting courses. Most of us leave work before 5:00pm; just when course selection is really getting started by students as you get home from school or work.
