Students: reminder that this Wednesday, September 13, 2017 is the census date for the Alamo colleges. This means that if you drop a course after this day it will count as one of your six drops you are allotted for your undergraduate career.
Keep in mind that there are pros and cons to dropping before and after census. If you are enrolled in 12 hours and are receiving financial aid, and drop before census, you could wind up owing several hundred dollars back to SAC because you would no longer be receiving aid as a full-time student. If you drop after census, you may not owe anything but again, would use one of your six drops.
After 6 drops, students are no longer allowed to drop a course and receive the grade they earn. In sum, please think carefully about dropping courses. If you would like to know exact amounts (which I encourage) before dropping please contact Financial Aid at 486-0777.
Please also remember that in order to both maintain Financial Aid and remain in good standing with SAC, students need to have a 2.0 GPA and complete 67% of the courses they attempt.
Also on Wednesday, 9/13, Prof. Wallis will be hosting a Time Management workshop in the HAC from 2-3PM. The majority of students coming into college struggle to manage their time–we recommend you attend this workshop to learn how to effectively manage yours!
