• 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.

Spring 2015 Textbook List
The spring 2015 textbook list for MSPM courses is now available on the blog at www.gwprojectmanagement.org.• Spring Courses on Blackboard
Courses will likely not appear on Blackboard until the week of 12 Jan. Once the professor opens the course on Blackboard, that is when you’ll have access.

If you need to confirm your spring course registrations, do so in GWeb, not Blackboard.
Fall 2014 courses will be removed from Blackboard shortly. If you need to download materials from those courses, do so immediately. Once the course is removed, you will no longer have access.

Grades
As a reminder, graduate students at GW may earn the following grades: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, and F. Grades A through C- are considered passing grades. Only a grade of F is a failure.

Please also remember that graduate students are required to maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA. If your GPA drops below a 3.0 after the completion of 9 credit hours, you will be placed on academic probation. I invite all students to review the GW and GWSB policies and regulations on this matter via the University Bulletin.
