MSPM: In the Know, March 24, 2015

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.
