Top 3 for 24 Mar

Summer and Fall 2015 Classes
Registration is now open for both the summer and fall 2015 semesters. Review your plans in DegreeMAP, schedule an advisement session with me, and register for classes to ensure you earn the seat in the course/section you want/need.

The Blackboard Collaborate schedule for summer 2015 is now available on the blog.
As a reminder, all general elective courses must be approved by your advisor to apply to the degree requirements. Failure to receive approval for your general elective may result in you having to take additional courses. Schedule an advisement session, plan ahead, and never make assumptions. Please also remember that you have both a general elective requirement to fulfill and a DNSC elective requirement. A DNSC elective is one that is offered by the Decision Sciences Department. Consult DegreeMAP to confirm your individual program requirements.

MSPM: In the Know

Spring 2014 Semester Begins Week of 13 Jan
2013 PMIEF Scholarship and Grant Recipients
2014 PMI Research & Education Conference

Dear MSPM Students,

Happy 2014! As you prepare for the start of the spring semester, these are top 3 items you need to know:

Spring 2014 Semester Begins Week of 13 Jan

Classes begin next week! Review the Schedule of Classes, your individual schedule on GWeb, and the GW Bookstore for days, times, locations, and textbook information for your courses. The Blackboard Collaborate schedule, as well as the textbook information, is also available via www.gwprojectmanagement.org.

The last day to add or drop a course via GWeb is 26 Jan. Courses added between 13-26 Jan will incur an $80 late fee. Courses dropped prior to 13 Jan will have 100% of the tuition charges cancelled. Courses dropped on or after 13 Jan are subject to the university refund schedule – on campus and off campus schedules.

Courses not yet appearing on Blackboard even though you confirmed your registration in GWeb? Chances are the professor has not yet activated the course in Blackboard. Rest assured that your course will be activated by the first day of the on-campus class. If you have specific questions about your course, the schedule, or the syllabus, contact your professor. Contact information for all faculty, staff, and students is available via the directory on my.gwu.edu.

2013 PMIEF Scholarship and Grant Recipients

Congratulations to the nine GW MSPM students who received scholarships or grants from the PMI Educational Foundation in 2013.
