Helpful Hints: Finish in Four

Data collected using the new Blue Hen Success Collaborative system reveal that students who complete at least 30 credits during their first year in college are significantly more likely to graduate in four years. Talk with your advisor about developing an academic plan that includes both the correct number and the appropriate type of credits needed for making progress toward degree completion. You may want to consider taking a course during the summer if you need additional credits.

In the Know: Grade Options

UST academic advisors will offer additional drop-in hours on Friday, April 6 and Monday, April 9 to assist students who have questions about alternative grading options such as withdraw, audit, and pass/fail. Visit our office at 148-150 South College Avenue.

To change your grade status in a course, visit WebReg and select “Withdraw,” or choose “Edit” to change to Pass/Fail or Audit. Changing your grade status in a course can affect some financial packages, so always check with a financial services representative to verify it won’t cause any problems.

 

In the Know: The Advising Relationship

Students are active partners in the advising process. Academic advisors are best able to assist you when you adequately prepare for your session by considering your goals, examining the university catalog, and writing down questions that will help you take the next step toward declaring a major.

To make an appointment with your UST advisor, use the online scheduler available in the Blue Hen Success Collaborative platform.
