​School of Education Weekly Newsletter

Week of October 17, 2016

Welcome to week 7 of the semester.

The School of Education is currently advising for the Winterim and Spring 2017 terms. Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare to see your adviser: 

  • Know when you register. Your registration date/time has been posted to MyPoint. Directions for registration are also on MyPoint. 

  • Review your DPR prior to your appointment to make sure you are on track to graduate. 

  • Review your SOE Advising Guide to make sure you are meeting expectations in a timely manner.

  • Review the timetable prior to your advising appointment to determine how your classes fit together.

  • You should bring your School of Education Advising Guide, a newly printed Degree Progress Report (available on MyPoint), any planning sheets you need for education and your major or minor, and a graduation plan (if you have one).

  • Make a list of questions or concerns and discuss them with your adviser.

  • Pre-registration for spring is required for all early childhood education, education, physical education (major) and health education (minor) courses, other than Education 205. The Pre-registration directions are available online.  The deadline to see your School of Education adviser is Friday, November 4, 2016.

  • Pre-registration for courses in other departments has already begun and is typically on a first-come, first-served basis. 

  • Communicative Disorders 367, Health Education 280, Natural Resources 370, and Physical Education 231 do not require permission.  The PR means you must be admitted to the Professional Education Program. 

  • Participate fully in the advising experience.

  • Follow through on recommendations from your adviser.
