AEX Updates

Undergraduate Academic Services

UAS is deep in the midst of processing Late Withdrawal Petitions and anticipating the storm we call ‘End of Term Processing’. If you are working with students who are waiting on an end of term decision regarding continuation or dismissal, please encourage them to be patient. UAS is unable to accept phone calls/appointments and we will not return emails to students regarding their end of term situation until all grades have been processed and students have been notified of our decisions. The conditional readmission process for Spring 2015 if underway as well. The STEP workshop for students conditionally readmitted for Spring 2015 will be held on Wednesday, January 7th.
