BIG CHANGES to FallA…please read!

Because of scheduling issues, there are few classes in MDD/WGD offered in Fall A (November-December).
Please make decisions and arrangements NOW to avoid drastic conflicts and issues when you’re ready to register for FallA.

The on-campus classes offered are:
WGD 250 (Raul Varela) and GMD 341 (Derek Manns). If you are considering WGD 205, 222 or 235, you must decide to either wait until Fall B (all classes will be offered), or take these classes online.

My recommendation is to wait, and take electives that session. If you MUST take any of those three classes, you are left with the online option.

I know this is not a great situation; if you have questions, please see me or Dean McClure.
