​School of Education Weekly Newsletter

Week of February 2, 2015

Welcome to week 3 of the semester.
Here are a few deadlines that are coming up in the near future. These dates were in last week’s newsletter, but we felt they were important enough to keep them in an additional week.
Dropping and Adding Courses
If you are interested in making changes to your spring schedule, you can add/drop 16-week courses online as a "clear drop" through Thursday, January 30. You can do this through MyPoint. Dropping or adding a course after January 29 requires special permission.
Exceptions Application Deadline
Students who will be submitting an exceptions application must do so by the deadline, Friday, February 6.
Applying to the Professional Education Program
The deadline to apply to the Professional Education Program for the spring 2014 semester is Friday, February 20. Remember, a deadline is not the only day to turn in an application, it is the last day. Applications are now being accepted in the School of Education Advising, Recruitment, & Retention Office, 469 College of Professional Studies. Directions on applying can be found in this Newsletter under Announcements and in your SOE Undergraduate Handbook or Advising Guide.
School of Education Scholarships
The School of Education has announced the availability of scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year. The application and directions can be found online. The deadline to submit an application is 4:30 p.m. on Monday, February 9. Late applications will not be accepted.
Have a great week!
