As you are probably aware, Ohio State will be converting from Quarters to Semesters, beginning Summer 2012. As you can imagine, it has been quite a process as the University has to rework more than 10,000 courses; more than 170 degree programs and hundreds more specializations; and all of its technology infrastructure and processes. I'm glad I wasn't overly involved in this process!!
But after years of work, we are finally getting close and your students are no-doubt getting anxious to learn more about what it will mean for their progression towards graduation. In the next several weeks, your student will begin hearing about several resources to support their academic transition to semesters-all via email, facebook, fliers around campus and the Lima website. Please encourage your student to take an active role in this transition.
Here are some of the things that will soon be available to your student:
And so it begins. Please know we are here to help your student through this process, but it will not be without hiccups. Again, encourage your student to be an active participant in the conversion!
And unrelated, but also important-if your student expressed interest in football tickets-information has been emailed regarding when ordering windows open. Please remind them to check that email account regularly!
Have a great day!
