V450 Change, IT Policy and E-Government and Tech Policy

There has been a change to a V450 course for spring--second eight weeks E-Government and Tech Policy, originally at 3 credit hours, will now be taught as a 1.5 credit hour class. It will be taught at the same time as first eight-week V450 course IT Policy, making the two a great companion pair of classes to equal the three credit hour requirement. If this change affects your schedule, please feel free to come to SPEA Walk-In Advising next week-9-11 and 1-3 every day.

Heads Up! First Day of Classes!

In last summer’s orientation materials (a planner, for students, and a guide for parents) FYE mistakenly noted Tuesday, January 11 as the first day of classes for the spring term (instead of Monday, January 10). The mistake was discovered mid-term in the fall and FYE sent multiple mass e-mails to both students and parents to correct this error – and they included this update on their regular website and on the FYMe website.

So, if you have heard that the first day of classes isn't til Tuesday...sorry, but no such luck. See you back in classes on Monday the 10th!
