Advising Email: Credit to Audit, Help from Brown's Librarians
February 21st, 2014
Dear first-year advisors and Meiklejohns, Mid-semester is March 7 and with it comes a registration deadline and the onset of research and writing assignments. Today's email provides details about the deadline and information on help with such assignments.
In addition, we'd like to add a quick word to our faculty and staff advisors: You will soon hear from Margaret Klawunn, Interim Dean of the College, thanking you for your work as first-year advisors and inviting you to continue next year. We are immensely grateful for your efforts, and hope you will be able to continue to advise first-years in 2014-15. Credit to Audit Friday, March 7 at 5:00 pm is the deadline for changing from credit to audit in a course. An audit carries no course credit, but it does count as one of the five courses for which a student can enroll in any given semester. It will appear on the academic record if the student has satisfied the instructor's stated expectations for an audit. (Note: The grade option deadline has now passed.)Help from Brown Librarians Many first-year students need assistance getting started on their research assignments. Our excellent library staff (many of whom are also academic advisors) can help students with first steps and introduce them to valuable, time-saving tools. Subject librarians are available to any undergraduate student for individual research consultations, or by contacting the appropriate subject librarian. Best wishes,
Ann Gaylin & Carol Cohen
