•Student Responsibilities: Continuous Enrollment
Students are responsible for knowing and following policies and procedures, which may be found in the University Bulletin, GWSB Bulletin section, and the MSPM Student Handbook. Per these sources, students are required to maintain continuous enrollment once they enter a degree program. A student is considered to be continuously enrolled when registered for courses through GW or when registered for an approved leave of absence. Enrollment required in fall and spring semesters, summer semester enrollment is not required. Failure to take such action requires students to make a formal application for reinstatement.
•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.
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.
