Three Things in Advising: April 29 - May 5, 2019

Things to Remember Number One

Grade Forgiveness

As the Spring 2019 Semester comes to a close, please refresh your knowledge of the Grade Forgiveness process; you may have students asking about this soon, if they have not done so already. As you may know, the Registrar’s Office has implemented a new 100% online process for students applying for Grade Forgiveness.

Things to Remember Number Two

Advisor Training Index

This will be our last Three Things Video for a little while, so we wanted to remind you that the University Advising Center has an Academic Advisor Training Index, replete with just about everything you need to know about technology, advising best practices, and campus resources.

Many of the videos found in the Advisor Training and Certification levels can be found in this database, but the difference here is that if you’d like to brush up on a specific topic, you can search for videos using the handy search field at the top of the page.
