'Registration Readiness' & 'Understanding Your Degree Plan' Workshops - AAC

The Academic Advising Center will be hosting two in-person workshops this semester to help prepare students for Spring Registration and understanding their degree plan. 

Registration Readiness Workshop (New & First-Year Students) -- Tuesday, October 17th at 5pm, EJ Brown 109

It's time to look to the future and plan for next semester! Learn about course registration, meeting with your advisor, staying on track with your degree planning, and graduation requirements! Most students get to register themselves for classes. The sooner you can get registered for next semester, the better schedule you will have. Learn about the digital tools that can help make registration quick and easy!

Understanding Your Degree Plan (All Students) -- Wednesday, October 18th at 5pm, EJ Brown 109

Get ready to take the lead in your education! In creating a degree plan you will have the ability to strategically plan courses to meet graduation requirements. Students will learn how to read and understand their degree requirements in Degree Works (the "Plans" tool in Degree Works). Now you will know exactly which courses are planned for each semester of their degree plan.

Finds these workshops and future events on Pioneer Link!

Construction Update

Our contractors continue to make great strides on the infrastructure project!

OPENINGS: For Friday the 13th, we have the good fortune of opening Lower College Drive near the Townhouses along with student parking lot #2 at the townhouses and fac/staff parking lot #6 next to Ag Sciences. It’s great to see this progress as that section of the work is ready to reopen.

Also on Friday, access to parking lots #18-24 will once again be accessible coming from the west with a temporary gravel entrance that will be open just in time for homecoming.

CLOSURE: Beginning Monday, October 16 work on Upper College Drive will move in front of Orvis and will block the entrances to student parking #25 and fac/staff lot #26. All auto access to athletic facilities will need to take the loop road from Facilities Services to the west entrance of lots #18-24.

Fac/staff lot #27 will remain open near the multi-purpose courts but it will be a tight entry for that week. Beginning Monday, October 23 continued Upper College Drive construction will necessitate the closure of fac/staff lot #27.

PARKING IMPACTS: Faculty/staff parking impacts are limited to two spaces in lot #26 in front of Orvis and an RD reserved space in lot #25. All students currently parked in #25 next to MacKenzie North will need to move their cars by noon on Sunday, October 15.

MAP: A University Police Parking Map includes all lot numbers and is available online with the Oct. 16 construction updates marked.

Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to make Alfred State more Be-YOU-tiful and as always please contact Jon Nickerson at 4724 if you have any questions or concerns.
