Important Announcements



Fall withdrawal deadline is November 24 
The last day to withdraw from most full-term courses is this Wednesday, Nov. 24 at 11:59 pm. Students may withdraw from courses in eServices. This helpful video shows the process.

Withdrawing from a class may impact your academic standing and financial aid eligibility, since the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy requires students to complete 66.66% of the credits for which they enroll. Before withdrawing from a course, it’s a good idea to check in with your instructor. It’s also good to remember that often a D grade will meet a requirement toward graduation.  


Same-day service is the best way to get help for withdrawal concerns this week. Remember, campus services are closed for break on Thursday and Friday.

·        Student Services helps with questions about whether completion could impact your Financial Aid through same day appointmentslive chat, and drop-in service in the Student Services hub in College Services Monday – Wednesday10 am – 4 pm this week.

·        Advising, Counseling & Career Center can discuss academic planning and course concerns through live advisor chat or on-campus Express Advising in the Student Services hub Monday – Wednesday10 am – 4 pm.

-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a commonly used security tool that helps keep your account and information safe and secured. It relies on at least 2 factors to validate you are the owner of the identity you are claiming. We are all familiar with single factor authentication, the traditional username and password combination. MFA relies on something you know, like a password, and something you have, such as a phone or other type of devices.

Please bring your own mask to campus 

As of Tuesday, September 7, we will require anyone entering a campus building to provide and wear their own mask. Any individual who does not have a mask will not be permitted in a campus facility. At the start of the semester, we offered disposable masks as a backup measure. The extraordinary rate of mask distribution and use of disposable masks is unsustainable for us, as these are limited in availability. Please help us keep campus safe by arriving wearing your mask and following our mask wearing requirements.

If you have questions about the college’s mask requirements please contact the Dean of Students at
