Summer 2009 E-Newsletter Issue #3

Important Date

July 31st- Last day to Withdraw from any class(es). Final day to submit Pass/Non-Credit to Enrollment services. All registrations must be complete.
Be Aware of Immigration Rules

If you are not on vacation status please be careful to not drop below 12 credits during summer quarter. Dropping below 12 credits puts you in danger of going out of your visa status as a full time student. If you need to drop a class please check with your advisor first.
Numbering for Physics Classes

In order to make sure that GRCC students receive credit for both lecture and lab in their physics courses, the college has been forced to change the course numbers for physics classes again. The following changes will be effective beginning in the fall of 2009:

  • Physics& 100 will become Physics 105.
  • Physics& 121 will become Physics 110.
  • Physics& 221 will become Physics 201
  • Physics& 222 will become Physics 202
We apologize for the incorrect course numbers that appear in the printed fall quarter schedule. Students must register for Physics 105, 110, 201, or 202. Again, this change was made to protect the transfer credit of our students.
Counseling Services
Counseling Services will be open on Mondays from 9 am to 3:30 pm during the remainder of Summer quarter. We're also open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 am to 4 pm.

Stay tuned, near the start of Fall quarter we'll be sending out our lineup of interesting and informative workshops geared toward helping students succeed both academically and personally. If you have ideas about workshops you would like to see us do, please let us know. Come visit us in LSC 231!

IESL News 
In-class registrations forms will be distributed in your Reading/Writing classes starting on Monday, July 20th. They will be used to determine your plans for next quarter. When you fill it out, please be sure all of your information is accurate and up to date. If you plan on taking a vacation quarter, transferring, or going home please be sure to see your advisor as soon as possible. If you plan on attending GRCC, you will be registered upon receipt of your form. If you are not sure of your plans, an IESL staff member will follow up with you in a few weeks.
