Important Updates from our GLCs and the Guidance Office

 

The last day to drop a class without it showing up on your transcript will be this Friday, February 1st. You may still drop a class after that date, but it will show up on your transcript as a WP (withdrawal pass) or an F if you are failing. Please see your GLC as soon as possible if you are thinking of dropping a class this semester.
