Campus update for April 7, 2020
April 7, 2020
The faculty has voted to adjust the P/NC (pass/no credit) policy for spring and summer classes. These changes apply to spring semester 2020 and summer session 2020 only.
The deadline for requesting P/NC status has been extended to the last day of spring classes, 4:30 p.m. May 15, 2020. See the complete policy.
Also, the withdrawal deadline for 14-week and S72 courses has been extended to 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 15.
→ You may not take all spring coursework P/NC.
→ General Education courses and major coursework may be taken P/NC and they will fulfill those requirements if a grade of P is earned.
→ Students in the teacher education program require special permission from their department.
To request a change, go to the P/NC request form.

We, as Student Government Association, want to start off by saying congratulations; you all have made it through the first week of distance learning.

As an executive board, we have an obligation to you all. We are obligated to be your connection to faculty and administration. We want to be the liaison between you, wherever you may be now, and the administrators and faculty back at Augie.
To best serve you, we have created a form for you to fill out. Feel free to use this space in whatever way you need. If you need a space for an anonymous rant, take it.

This form is completely anonymous, unless you leave your email. Feel free to comment as generally or as specifically as you would like on the topic of distance learning. We want to fulfill our obligation to you all as best we can, and we need your help to do so.
