Upper Division Registration Advising Office Hours

Be prepared for course registration and choose the courses that are right for you.   Do you want to enroll in an externship or an independent study?  Do you need to request to enroll in more than 16 hours as a full-time student or 12 hours as a part-time student?  Have you completed a degree checklist recently?  Do you want to take non-law graduate level courses?  
 
The Student Life Office will be offering course registration advising office hours for upper division students on October 24, 25, and 26, and during the week of November 1.  Stop by or make an appointment in advance to discuss any questions you may have regarding your Spring or Summer 2012 schedules, graduation requirements, externships, pre-registration permission forms, etc.  John Cross, Associate Dean for Student Life, and Kimberly Ballard, Assistant Dean for Academic and Student Services, will be available to provide one-on-one advising, and to answer questions about course selection.  To sign-up for a time in advance, add your name to the appointment sheet outside Dean Ballard's office.
