Dear MSPM Students,

The top 3 items you need to know this week:

MSPM Student Bio Books

As a reminder, all MSPM students have access to the bio books for each incoming class on www.gwprojectmanagement.org. We’ve also recently added the spring 2014 bio book. This is a great way to learn about your classmates and to also remind yourself of the people you met during orientation.

Need a Tutor for Statistics?

Are you in need for a tutor in statistics this semester? Luis Novoa, a doctoral student in the Decision Sciences Department at GWSB, is available to those looking for additional help. Contact Luis directly at ljnovoa@gwu.edu for rates and availability.

Updated List of External Scholarships
Spring 2014 – Schedule, Registration, and Holds
Upcoming Networking, Education, and Social Events

Dear MSPM Students,

The top 3 items you need to know this week:

Updated List of External Scholarships

New scholarships have been added to the list of external scholarships on www.gwprojectmanagement.org. The scholarships listed are available to graduate students pursuing studies in project management and related fields. Scholarships are like the lottery, you can’t win if you don’t play.

On a related note, the MSPM program does not have additional funding available for current students at this time. Should funding become available, we will certainly notify all students within the program.

Spring 2014 – Schedule, Registration, and Holds

The spring 2014 schedule is now available on the Schedule of Classes via the Office of the Registrar website. Registration opens November 4. Prior to registering for classes, schedule an advisement session with me via www.meetme.so/gwmspm to confirm your plan in DegreeMAP is aligned with your course selection.

Make sure you remove any holds on your account that may prevent you from registering for your classes. Pay your student account balance as financial holds will be placed on accounts showing a balance of $500 or more. If you are currently on probation, you must register for classes through me during your advisement session.

If you are taking DNSC 6269 PM Applications (capstone) in the spring, you must submit a completed Registration Transaction Form to my attention via email or fax to register for the course. Don’t forget to also apply for graduation if you are completing all program requirements in the spring 2014 semester.
