Summer 2016 STAP Application Deadline on 28 Feb
Sunday, 28 Feb, is the deadline to apply for one of the summer 2016 Short-Term Study Away Programs (STAP). Remember, the course must first be approved by your advisor, Cambria Happ. To learn more about the STAP programs, contact Lisa Brancheau, G&EE Assistant Director, at sbintl@gwu.edu.

Student Responsibilities: Holds
Students are responsible for reviewing their record in GWeb to ensure they do not have any holds on their record that will prevent registration. Holds can prevent you from registering, adding or dropping classes, receiving transcripts, obtaining grades, or graduating. Holds are placed on student accounts for various reasons, such as money due to GW, the need to meet with your advisor, placement on probation, or unmet immunization requirements. Learn more about holds on the Office of the Registrar site.

Vote for the 2014 Outstanding MSPM Faculty Award
Summer 2014 Registration – Distance Sections Almost Full
National Fellowship Databases

Dear MSPM Students,

The top 3 items you need to know this week:

Vote for the 2014 Outstanding MSPM Faculty Award

Submit your vote before 12pm EDT on Friday, April 4, for the 2014 Outstanding MSPM Faculty Award. This is your opportunity to recognize your favorite professor for their contributions and dedication to MSPM students and the program.

Summer 2014 Registration – Distance Sections Almost Full

The distance sections of our summer course offerings are almost full. If your plan in DegreeMAP included attendance in the summer semester and you are limited to only distance courses, register immediately to claim your seat. If you are in the DC metro area and are able to attend the on campus sections, register accordingly.

If you have a financial hold on your account, you must resolve the outstanding balance with GW before you are able to register. The MSPM program office is not authorized to remove or bypass financial holds. If, however, you have an academic hold on your account, schedule an advisement session with me to discuss.

National Fellowship Databases

GW’s Office of Graduate Student Assistantships and Fellowships provides access to national fellowship databases. MSPM students are encouraged to utilize databases, such as Grant Forward and Pivot, to seek out funding for your graduate education. Many scholarships and fellowships are not issued annually because students simply do not apply.
