Are you Traveling during Spring Break?
If you will be traveling outside the US you will need to have your I-20 signed by an advisor before you leave. Signatures are valid for 6 months. It's not too early to take care of this now. Don't delay; visit IP today!

Spring Break is a Great Time to Visit Universities!
Have you thought of taking a tour of schools you might be interested in transferring to? Spring break is the perfect time for a road trip! Get a group together to share the expense of the rental car, gas and hotel. Don't hesitate to contact the schools to let them know of your visit. Some may even offer hospitality: campus tours, time with admissions advisors, class visitations or even overnight stays in their dorms!

Making Payment for Spring Quarter
Payment is due each quarter by the first day of class. However, it is smart to make your payment early. You can avoid the lines the first day of the quarter, and avoid a late fee in the event of banking issues. You may make payment (at the cashier's office or online) any time after you have registered for your classes. If you are waitlisting for other classes you will need to make payment for any additional classes after they are added.

Will you be Graduating this Spring?

It's time to apply for your degree! Come to the IP office to pick up your degree application right away! You will also need to print a copy of your "Degree Audit" and submit that with your application at the cashier's office. The cost is just $10. If you apply for your degree, in May you will receive more information about participating in the (optional) June graduation ceremony.
