Happy New Year… and welcome to Interterm! I hope you had a wonderful winter break. I will be sending announcements only as needed during interterm, so they may not come out each week. The following are my announcements for the week of January 3:
- Interterm deadlines – Please note these Interterm academic deadlines:
o Monday, January 9, is the last day to add Interterm courses, drop courses without record of enrollment (i.e., a W), and change a course to audit option.
o Tuesday, January 10, is the last day to add internships, experiential learning projects, an individual study, or reading and conference course.
o Thursday, January 19, is the last day to drop a course with a W or change grading option (P/NP or letter grade).
- Martin Luther King holiday – The University will be closed on Monday, January 16, in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
- Deadline to apply for degree conferral –Seniors, although you might complete all of your degree program requirements by the end of spring semester, please remember that graduation is not automatic. All students who are preparing to graduate must apply for Degree Conferral online in the Student Center so that the Office of the Registrar may assess your eligibility to receive your degree. Please apply for the actual semester in which all your degree requirements will be (or have been) met. The online application for Degree Conferral takes only a few moments to complete and there is no cost to seniors. For more information, go to https://www.chapman.edu/students/academic-resources/registrar/student-services/graduation/. The preferred deadline is Sunday, January 15.
