For Faculty

1. Sabbatical Forum

This is a reminder that the Sabbatical Forum is on Thursday, Sept. 26 from 3:30-5:00 in PAD 308. Bob Smart from CSCE will be there to answer any questions about the new on-line submission system. 

Also, the CLAS Faculty Development Committee (FDC) conducts pre-reads of sabbatical proposals and anybody interested in this should contact Heather Van Wormer (vanwormh@gvsu.edu).

2. Drop/Add Process (link)

The last day to add a course (or receive 100% tuition refunds for a course drop) for Fall 2013 was Friday, August 30, 2013 (until 5:00 pm). After that time, the late add process begins for those interested in adding a course. Attached are the steps to follow for the late addition of a course.

Students can drop courses until October 25, 2013 and receive a grade of W. For requests to drop a course after that date, there are separate procedures for that process that do not involve the College Deans Office. Students need to write a letter specifically stating why they are dropping the course(s) so late in the semester and append any relevant documentation. A late drop/add form needs to be completely filled out by the student. The completed add/drop form & the letter needs to be presented to the unit head for approval. All documentation needs to be taken to the Student Academic Success Center (Mike Messner) in 200 Student Services Building (STU) for review and final approval.
