Today, Thursday, November 19, is the last day to withdraw from Fall semester courses. You must submit your withdrawal form to the Registrar’s Office by 5 p.m. The form needs to be signed by your instructor, your faculty advisor and last, by the class dean.
Withdrawal Deadline: 11/19 — 5 p.m.
Thursday, November 19 at 5 p.m. is the last day to withdraw from courses this semester. Make sure you know how you are doing in each of your classes, what your credit situation is, and what is the appropriate course of action for you. A “W,” which will be listed on your transcript, is a neutral notation for Wesleyan, meaning that it is not included in your grade point average. You should talk with your instructor and faculty advisor as well as to your class dean, all of whose signatures are needed on the withdrawal form, which you can get from the Registrar’s Office or your class dean.
Drop/Add Period Ends
Note from the Registrar:
Please review your class schedule to ensure that you are correctly registered for all your fall classes. Drop/add will end at 11:59 p.m. today, Monday, September 21, 2009. After this you will not be able to make any further changes to your schedule for full-semester and first-quarter course. This includes grading mode and cross listing changes.
Enrollment in the University: Click “Enroll Me”
You must enroll in the University by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 8, 2009 or you risk being administratively withdrawn. You must enroll–even if you still have unresolved holds–so you can participate in Drop/Add.
To enroll, visit the enrollment site in your portfolio in the Campus Life column and click on the “Enrollment, Holds and Addresses” link under “My Enrollment Status.” Click on the blue “Enroll Me” button!
If you cannot see the “Enroll Me” button from your computer, you will need to go to one of the computer labs on campus or to the North College lobby to enroll. Anyone enrolling late will be charged a fine of $25.
All holds must be resolved and cleared by Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 5:00 p.m. Anna van der Burg, Registrar
Your Local/Cell Phone Number
For your safety and in the case of an emergency, it is very important that Wesleyan University have a local phone number on file for you—whether that be a landline through WesTel or your own cell phone number. If you have not already done so, please take a moment to submit your phone number through your student portfolio: Click the “Phone/Nondisclosure” link in the “Enrollment Status” bucket under Campus Life in the third column and follow the directions. You will have an Enrollment Hold and will not be fully enrolled in the University until you have done this. Thank-you!
Anna van der Burg, Registrar
Your Meal Plan: August 1 Deadline
Choosing your meal plan…seemingly an easy decision, but make sure you have all the facts before you decide. Your Wesleyan dining experience is run by Bon Appétit, which earned this past year the highest dining satisfaction rating (almost 80%!) ever at Wesleyan University, so you can be sure you are getting a great product! For specific information about them you can go to: http://www.cafebonappetit.com/wesleyan/
When selecting your meal plan, be sure to pick the plan that you really think will meet your needs. Pay attention to the number of meals each plan averages per week and, based on your usual eating habits, pick the one you think meets your style. Unused meals do not roll over to the next semester, so you want to use meals before points whenever possible. You can always add points on, but unused meals are lost so pick the plan that will allow you to get the most out of your dining experience.
Here is a summary of the meal plan information for 2009-2010:
Block 210 — MEALS/$100 POINTS PER SEMESTER (averages 14 meals per week)
Block 165 — MEALS/$275 POINTS PER SEMESTER (averages 11 meals per week)
Block 135 — MEALS/$475 POINTS PER SEMESTER (averages 9 meals per week)
*Block 285 — MEALS/$50 POINTS PER SEMESTER (averages 19 meals per week) *Additional cost of $300 per semester
Make your meal plan selection in your electronic portfolio by August 1! Have a safe and enjoyable summer! Michelle Myers-Brown, Director, Usdan University Center
