Hello, CBA parents! Another semester mile-marker is in the books, I hope fall break was a good time for you to catch up with your son or daughter. The hustle and bustle in CBA seems to be picking up the pace as we race towards the finish line of the fall semester. While I realize your son or daughter is an independent young adult, I thought you might not mind knowing some of the upcoming university dates/deadline that we are discussing here in CBA.
Monday, October 28th begins Priority Registration for spring semester classes. I know it seems like you just got them here, but students are beginning, depending on their priority, to register for spring classes now. Priority registration runs through November 12th according to the schedule below and open enrollment begins November 13th. Traditionally the University allocates three days for each category of students to register; below are the priority categories and corresponding dates.
Our Undergraduate Advising team has additional information available at our Priority Registration webpage. Please encourage your student to take advantage of the opportunity and get their spring schedule set sooner than later – those preferred classes go fast!
Monday, December 16th begins the week of fall semester final exams. This can be a stressful time for students. Here are some tips I found that might help navigate the tense moments as your student clears the final hurdle before the holiday break. If you get the chance in conversations with your son or daughter, you might hit on any of the tips about exam studying below:
The doors of CBA communication are open, and I welcome your messages any time. Have a wonderful fall.
