Need to Know
Spring 2010 graduation applications are due to the Graduate College by Friday, February 12, 2010.
NAU President John Haeger will attend the next GSO meeting to talk about topics of interest to grad students, including upcoming tuition proposals. That's February 17 at 5:15, location to be determined. Watch for a listserv message in your e-mail for more details — interested graduate students are invited to attend or participate via the meet-me-line.
In summer 2009, NAU began moving all students to the new Google Apps for Education e-mail service. The new service is a big improvement over the past; it also allows NAU to give students lifetime e-mail accounts. In other words, NAU will not delete these accounts when you graduate.
Will you be graduating this academic year? Will you be writing a thesis or dissertation in partial fulfillment of your degree requirements?
If so, then we encourage you to attend Timelines and Templates: Guidelines for Thesis and Dissertation Formatting, a free workshop with Victoria Endres, Graduate College format editor.
The workshop will be held Tuesday, February 16,
at 3 – 4:30 p.m. in the
Havasupai Rooms A&B. No need to RSVP.
Graduate students are invited to become fans of the Graduate College on Facebook. The site is becoming increasingly useful as more graduate students, faculty, and graduate coordinators post event announcements, photos, and requests for information. We also post articles featuring our grad students as well as national articles exploring provocative issues in higher education.
With the implementation of the new credit card policies, refunding processes have changed. Previously any refunds originating from an online LOUIE credit card payment were processed once a week on Tuesdays. The monies were transferred directly back to the credit card account.
The Provost has provided funding to the library to make the Chronicle of Higher Education available to the university community at no charge. To read the current or back issues, visit the Cline Library Home page at www.nau.edu/library/.
