DATES/DEADLINES TO KNOW

Wednesday, September 10th: Last Day to Drop a Course without Tuition/Fee Charges and a W Grade (11:59 p.m.)
Please check your MYCUINFO for which classes you are actually enrolled in. D2L shows courses you are both enrolled and waitlisted in. For accuracy of what you are actually enrolled in, refer to MYCUINFO!

If you stayed on a wait list and did not get into a course by the Sept 3 deadline, you can use the course reservation program for spring registration, whereby the registrar's office can register you for your course a week ahead of everyone else! (Note: Spring 2015 registration will start in November.)

Here’s the link to this great option, check it out: http://registrar.colorado.edu/students/registration/course_reservation.html

December 2014 Graduates:
Students intending to actually graduate in December of 2014 (this is different than just walking for the graduation ceremony), please see your primary advisors as well as any additional advisors and minor advisors that you have in order to fill out graduation paperwork before November 1, 2014. Your advisor will instruct you how to fill out your senior exit survey as well.

Afterwards, apply for graduation on MYCUINFO before November 1, 2014.

You will receive information about your department's ceremony closer to the date of graduation.
