Participate in the Arts and Sciences Experience (ASE) this fall. ASE is an online course through BlackBoard. You registered for it during orientation. If you didn’t attend orientation, it was added to your schedule. ASE is a non-credit, pass/fail course that includes information on how to succeed in the College of Arts and Sciences. You will want to view it periodically once you’re here in the fall.
Give us your cell phone number. No, we won’t call you to chat, but having this on file, helps us to contact you if we have a question. If you haven’t already please submit your cell phone number us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your name and student ID with your cell phone number.
It bears repeating…include your nine-digit student ID in communications sent to the college. It helps us to serve you more efficiently.
Know that you have the first week of the semester to add a class to your schedule and the first two weeks of the semester to drop a class from your schedule .
