April 20 2010
Friday April 23 is the last day to drop a class without the college dean's signature. Withdrawing from a class at this time results in a W in a student's transcript and it also goes towards the unit limits for withdrawals from a class – this limit was described in a newsletter this past Fall 2009.
In almost all cases, withdrawal in the last three weeks of classes (after April 23) will involve total withdrawal from all classes due to the serious nature of an illness or injury.
There are curriculum changes that are taking effect Fall 2010. This does not affect current students. The most significant change is that CECS 100 is now a prerequisite to CECS 174 which is why you will not find CECS 174 in the Fall 2010 schedule. Again, the curriculum changes affect primarily incoming students and those who declare their major effective Fall 2010 or later.
Several students have also observed that MATH 222 is not on the schedule. I will address this issue in the next newsletter.
This is a special topics class and it is expected to be a new elective in the curriculum. The class will be taught by Dr. Gittleman and will cover programming of Android and iPhone devices. For more information, contact Dr. Gittleman via e-mail.
Students are strongly encouraged to enroll early for Fall 2010 classes. Budgetary constraints continue and it is important that students register in their classes. The department studies the enrollment to determine if demand is met; whenever a class is under enrolled, it is a candidate to be canceled so it is important for students to enroll in their classes.
