Note from Dean Brown: Withdrawal and Pre-reg Deadlines; WesFest

Class of 2013:

Thursday, April 15 at 5 p.m. is the deadline for two important procedures—course withdrawal and pre-registration! 

1.  Withdrawal from full semester and fourth quarter courses :  You need to discuss withdrawing from a class with your instructor and faculty advisor as well as get their signatures on a withdrawal form, available from my office or the Registrar’s.  My signature is the last one you need before submitting the form to the Registrar’s Office.  I would be happy to talk with you as well if you’re deciding what to do.   

2. Pre-registration for the Fall 2010:  You need to meet with your faculty advisor—MAKE AN APPOINTMENT NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T DONE SO ALREADY—to review your course selection and finalize your schedule.  Check out the websites of majors you might be interested in and know what gateway courses you need in order to keep the doors open as you better identify your interests.  Those wanting to do pre-med and/or study abroad also need to keep an eye on course scheduling over the next few semesters.

3. WesFest:   Can you believe that last year at this time, it was YOU coming to WesFest?  Now YOU are in the position to welcome these newly-admitted students to the Wes community.  Check out the schedule at and bring on the Wes spirit!     

As always, don’t hesitate to come to drop-in, if you have questions or concerns. 

Best, Dean Brown       202 North College, 860-685-2758 (office)
