Complete a short online survey to tell us what is working and what can be improved upon. Survey link: http://gwu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_4GvpG7Cqy8KcMTj

Welcome to the Spring 2013 Semester!

Welcome back to our returning students and welcome to GW for our new MSPM students!  I hope you all had an opportunity to rest and relax during the holiday break and are ready to begin the spring semester.

Spring 2013 Class Bio Book

Get to know the incoming spring 2013 class via the latest Bio Book.  Interested in learning about current students in the program?  You can view previous Bio Books under the Resources tab at www.gwprojectmanagement.org.

Continuous Enrollment in Spring 2013

If you have not registered for courses in the spring term or applied for a Leave of Absence, contact our office immediately to discuss your plans.  Failure to maintain continuous enrollment in the program jeopardizes your admission in the program.  I invite all students to review the University and School of Business policies per the GW Bulletin 2012-2013.

Degree Planning using DegreeMAP

If we have not yet developed a degree plan in DegreeMAP, schedule a meeting with me via www.meetme.so/gwmspm so that we may do so.  For those who previously developed a plan with the former program director, yet the data has not been uploaded into DegreeMAP, I ask that you also schedule a meeting to discuss the plan developed.  We have revised the course schedule through 2016 and should revisit your plans to confirm that they are achievable as designed.

When planning your classes for the coming semesters, please be aware of any credit hour/semester requirements based on your fellowships, financial aid packages, student loans, or international student visas.  This is key information to share with your adviser and for you to understand so that you can fulfill your obligations.

Blackboard – Course Capture and Collaborate

Blackboard recently updated their system which seems to have caused a disconnect with the course capture links (recordings of on campus lectures).  The majority of the issues were resolved on Thursday, January 17, however the balance of the course capture links should be corrected by close of business today, Friday, January 18.  As a reminder, the course capture links for each course may be found in the left-hand menu on the course’s Blackboard site.

The Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate Live) schedule is posted to the blog, but will also be reviewed by your professors.  Access to Blackboard Collaborate is found via the Tools icon in Blackboard.

Graduation

For those eligible to graduate in spring 2013, graduation applications are due by February 1.  Submit to our office for review and approval.  Once you apply for graduation, you will begin to receive information on the commencement ceremonies and all related activities from Graduation Services.

Academic Calendar

GW’s academic calendar may always be found on the Office of the Registrar’s website.  The current calendar is posted through the spring 2015 semester.

 

Best of luck on the new term!
