A Note from Academic Advising

Even though your spring semester has been radically changed, we’re still looking forward to the next steps in your academic life. Your academic advisor will be reaching out to schedule a time to meet either by phone or video. Be sure to schedule your meeting before your registration time opens so that your advisor will be able to approve your courses.  

May 6 is the last day to withdraw from a current semester class.

In order to give you more options in this unusual semester, the course withdrawal period has been extended through the last day of classes. If you aren’t doing as well as you had hoped this semester, be sure to communicate with your professor and your advisor about your situation and about your options.  

The Academic Success Center has moved many services online to help you succeed and faculty are working hard to support you. However, sometimes withdrawing from a class can still be the best choice since it allows you to focus on your other course work. A course withdrawal means that you will not earn credit for the course, and you’ll receive a “W” on your transcript, which doesn’t impact your GPA. The Course Withdrawal form has been changed to an online form which you can find on my.gordon under the Academics tab on the top menu, and then under Forms (Digital) on the left sidebar.

As a reminder, we’ve also adjusted the online registration dates for next fall:

Seniors: Thursday, April 9
Juniors: Tuesday, April 14
Sophomores: Thursday, April 16
First-Years: Tuesday, April 21  

An update on grading
