The three day week between Christmas and New Year’s is often a chance to get some odds and ends done before the craziness of the Spring semester hits.
Tuition bills are due this week on December 30, just as a reminder. If you really plan to attend in the Spring and you don’t know how you’re going to pay for it, just don’t ignore the bill. Talk first to the folk in Financial Aid to make sure your paperwork is in order.
Then talk to the nice people in the Business Office and work out what needs to be done. Occasionally, the sad answer is ‘nothing’ but more often than not, the staff in the Business Office can give you some kind of an option you can work with.
Academic and Financial Aid probation appeals are separate processed and have separate dates.
If you ended up on Academic Probation and/or Financial Aid probation (they are independent and have different rules about how you get there) and you have either a reason why you had a bad semester or you have a plan on how you are going to fix things, the committee that looks at such things is really interested in what you have to say.
BUT. You have to put in your application for an appeal by the deadline in the letter you got. If you didn’t get a letter, contact the Advisement office about Academic Probation and the Financial Aid Office about Financial Aid probation. There are no appeals on missing the deadline.
Okay, going off to eat lunch… bean soup and a turkey sandwich… yummm……
