Anteater Weekly Event Submission
Anteater Weekly - Week 2

October 8, 2007
____________________________________________________________

ALL STUDENTS

* Registrar Week 2 Notice: Friday, October 12, 5 p.m., is the last day to add/drop/change a class without a service fee of $3.00 and the last day to change grade option or variable units without the signature of your dean. Check with your academic counseling office for any overriding school policies.


* Please be advised that the quarterly due date for fees has been revised. Effective with the Spring 2008 term, the campus has adopted a consistent fee deadline of the 15th of the month. Should the 15th fall on a weekend or holiday, the fee deadline will be the next working day.

Accordingly, the Spring 2008 fee deadline is Monday, March 17th. Previously the fee deadline has fallen on different dates each term. It is our hope that a consistent deadline will make it easier for you to monitor and observe this critical date.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Bennett
University Registrar

Linda Sizemore
Director, Financial Services
