Reminder: Sunday is last day you can withdraw from a class
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
In fall 2011, the University revised its rules for dropping or withdrawing from a course.
For graduate and undergraduate students:
  • You may drop a class up to Monday, Jan. 23. A "drop" will not appear on your transcript. The class simply "disappears."
  • You may withdraw from a class between Jan. 24 and Sunday, Feb. 26 through ZipLine (no signatures required).
  • If you do not drop or withdraw, you will receive a grade in the class.
  • If you withdraw, a "WD" will appear on your transcript. You should know that a withdrawal may affect your financial aid, eligibility for on-campus employment and eligibility for insurance. Speak with your adviser for details.
For undergraduate students only, withdrawals are limited:
  • Undergraduate students may withdraw from up to two courses in their first 32 credits, and up to two more times in the next 32 credits. This applies to new students who began their studies at UA in fall 2011, or thereafter, and to all continuing students attending in Fall 2013 or subsequent semesters.
  • Undergraduate students may withdraw from the same course only twice. This applies to new students who began their studies at UA in fall 2011, or thereafter, and to all continuing students attending in Fall 2013 or subsequent semesters.
  • Exceptions may be made for extraordinary non-academic reasons (e.g., medical treatment or convalescence, military service). See your adviser.
The new rules are intended to help you graduate on time. Your adviser can answer specific questions.

The Network of Enlightened Women is seeking nominations for the first annual Gentleman’s Showcase – March Madness style. The Showcase seeks to restore the dignity and respect between the sexes while honoring gentlemanly behavior and chivalry.
What is a gentleman? He opens the door for you without expecting anything in return, he shovels a neighbor’s car out of the snow, he helps an older woman carry her groceries, he treats you like the lady you are, he is confident but not conceited.

Do you know a gentleman who fits this description? Follow the link below to nominate him:

    Musical Duo: The Bergamot

    Date: Tuesday, March 6, 2012

    Time: 7:17pm

    Location: SU Starbucks

    The Bergamot has earned instant comparisons to the likings of Adele, Dave Matthews, with a little Michael Jackson thrown into the mix. Classically trained, Nathan Hoff is a multi-faceted artist, fulfilling an impressive array of roles from songwriting to engineering. On the other hand, Jillian Speece holds down the house with her crafty songwriting and powerfully beautiful vocals that will stop you dead in your tracks. Dynamite, fresh, fierce, and fun are just a few words that come to mind when talking about The Bergamot and it seems everyone is talking about The Bergamot these days.

    The Bergamot calls their musical style “Organic Pop Music,” they describe their sound as a genre that “integrates catchy melodies and honest lyrics, with that throw-back non-processed sound we all grew up listening to.” In addition to their energetic sound, The Bergamot offers an intimate musical experience, too.

    FREE STARBUCKS TO THE FIRST 150!
