We hope you are all having a great summer. Please read this message carefully as it has important information on fall courses and advising.

  1. As you know this semester pre-registration will be in place for all courses and “shopping period” will be considerably earlier than in the past starting August 10. By August 7, expanded course descriptions will be available online to help with course selection. By August 21 at 5pm preliminary schedules will need to be submitted. We will be offering office hours via zoom every day of the week starting August 10 until August 21 and the schedule for these office hours will be posted on the webpage (under announcements from the DUS). You do not need to email us to set up meeting times – just show up in our zoom rooms during the times we have posted.
  2. We will be conducting our own pre-registration for research methods courses for the full year (Fall 2020/Spring 2021). Information about this can be found below. So if you need to take research methods during this academic year, check out the information provided below.
  3. Research Opportunities on our website are in the process of being updated and should be done by August 1st.
