Updates to Student Advising
How do I schedule an advising appointment? Please continue to schedule advising appointments online using STAR.
How do I meet with my advisor? Advising appointments will now be hosted online, through Zoom, a video conferencing tool. Once an appointment is scheduled online, the confirmation email will also include a link to instructions about how to join a Zoom meeting. Zoom can be accessed from mobile devices, desktop computers or web interfaces.
How do I apply to graduate? Please continue to use the Moody College’s online graduation application.
How do I request a Q-drop? Students will be given until May 29 to request Q-drops. All Spring 2020 Q-drops will be considered non-academic and will not count toward the university’s 6-drop rule. The university is actively working to develop a process to handle these requests digitally. We will post instructions here soon.
How do I change a class to Pass/Fail? Students will be given until May 29 to change their status from letter grade to Pass/Fail (or vice-versa). Any course taken by a student may be changed to Pass/Fail at the student’s option, with no restrictions. Policies relating to whether courses are taken for a letter grade or P/F (for instance, the rule that all Moody College courses must be taken for a letter grade) are suspended for courses taken on the pass/fail basis this current semester. However, students considering changing a course to Pass/Fail should take into consideration the possible impact of this decision on eligibility for admission to graduate or professional schools and the like. More information on this will be available soon. The university is actively working to develop a process to handle P/F requests digitally. We will post instructions here soon.
How do I withdraw from the Spring 2020 semester? Students will be given until May 29 to withdraw. The university is actively working to develop a process to handle these requests digitally. We will post instructions here soon.
What about internal transfer to Moody College? How will that be handled? The application to transfer to Moody College was available during the month of February. We plan to release decisions in late May/early June. The next application period will be in September.
