Information for Parents of the Class of 2016
Early Assessment Reports will be mailed the week of February 18th. All students who have freshman status, and students who are new transfers, receive Early Assessment Progress Reports just before the mid-point of the fall and spring semesters.
Keep in mind that the Early Assessment is based upon your student's grades recorded before February 18. A student's final, recorded grade may improve, or it may drop, based upon his/her performance during the remainder of the semester. The Early Assessment is meant as a tool for students, their parents/guardians, coaches and academic advisors to help them understand the student's academic progress. Only final grades will appear on students' official transcripts.
Registration for Fall Classes
Students will schedule their classes for the fall during the spring semester. Course registration is a two-phase process. Phase I begins on March 13 and ends March 27. During Phase I, students meet with their advisors and select courses. Encourage your student to make an appointment early with his/her academic advisor to meet and select classes for the spring.
Students who do not receive all of the courses they selected during Phase I will meet again with their advisors to select alternate courses during Phase II, which begins April 10 (Please note: Due to a change in the College's academic calendar, Phase II will take place one week later than the original dates listed in publications. The date listed here is current as of 2/12/13).
For more information on how the scheduling process works, use the link to "How the Registration Process Works" on the Registrar's "How Do I..." page.
Is your student thinking about summer school?
If your student is thinking about taking a course at a college or university close to home over the summer, be sure he/she submits the Request to Take a Course Off Campus form to the Office of the Registrar, and that the course is approved before the class begins. This is important, because pre-approval will ensure that credits from courses taken off campus transfer to Lycoming.
