• Spring 2015 Registration Deadlines
The spring semester begins on Monday, 12 Jan. If you have not yet registered for classes, do so before 12 Jan to avoid the late registration fee.

Sunday, 25 Jan, is the last day to add or drop courses on GWeb. Friday, 6 Feb, is the last day to add or drop a course using an RTF without academic penalty.

Failure to register for classes or to request a Leave of Absence puts you in violation of the continuous enrollment policy and jeopardizes your enrollment at GW.

Blackboard Access & Collaborate Schedule
Access to courses in Blackboard will occur next week, by the first day of your class. Some professors have already made their courses available this week.

The Blackboard Collaborate schedule is available on the blog for the Spring 2015 distance/online sections.

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.
