IMPORTANT: April 1 Deadline for Lapsed Incomplete Grades

Dear Students:
The GSAS Dean’s Office has announced their intention to begin strictly enforcing policies regarding incomplete grades. After April 1, 2012, grade changes will not be permitted for any incomplete that has extended beyond one academic year without an approved extension and/or has lapsed to an F.
Until that date, the Dean’s office is allowing students to rectify current Incompletes that should have expired or have already lapsed to an F. If you currently have an unresolved Incomplete or F on your transcript from a course that you took an incomplete in, please contact Draper as soon as possible to discuss how best to handle your situation. In some cases, extensions of incompletes may be possible. 
Going forward, please remember that GSAS policy states that students who take an incomplete in a course have one year from the *beginning* of the semester in which the course was taken to complete the work and receive a final grade. If the course work is not completed within this time, and the student has not been granted an extension, the ‘I’ will turn into an ‘F.’ 
Extensions for incomplete grades are often granted–please be sure to contact Draper if you think that you’ll need even a short amount of extra time to complete outstanding coursework. 
GSAS’ complete policy for incomplete grades can be found in section 3.6 the Policy and Procedures manual here.

Notice about summer class schedule and registration

Dear Draperites,
While we know that the search function in Albert now includes summer courses, we want you to be clear that most departments do not have their full course schedules set yet, including Draper.

We will send an announcement to this listserv when our schedule is up, closer to February 13. The last day to register for the Summer Session I is not until May 20, so you have plenty of time to consider your summer course choices.

Draper does not have an official advisement period for summer classes. After February 13, if you want to enroll in summer courses, please email draper.program@nyu.edu for approval.

Happy Thanksgiving!

NYU offices (including Draper) will close at 4:00 PM today in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The office will remain closed on Thursday and Friday, but we’ll be back open during regular business hours on Monday, November 28.

Have a great holiday!

For some holiday-inspired laughs, check out the “Literary Turducken” fest on Twitter. “The Literary Turducken combines not one, not two, but three classic works into one, in the spirit of the turkey+duck+chicken creole classic.”

Don’t Forget Advising for the Spring Semester!

If you have not already made your advisement appointment for spring 2012 classes, please call Draper (212.998.8070) to set up an appointment. Appointments can be held in person or over the phone, but all students who will be enrolling in courses during the coming semester *must* speak to Dr. Dimit for advising.

Next week will be the last week of advising until January–there will be no advising appointments made in December.
Appointments are still available on Monday, Nov. 21 and Tuesday, Nov. 22.

Call Draper at 212.998.8070 to schedule your appointment.
