From the Office of the Resident Dean
Carlos E. Díaz Rosillo
For those of you graduating this May, you should have received an e-mail from me about your remaining requirements and about checking your course report. If you haven’t done so already, it is important that you LOOK OVER YOUR COURSE REPORT and return the form to the House office right away. Please make sure to come to see me if you have any questions.
Add-Drop, Change to Pass-Fail, Cross-Registration and Other Forms
These forms are available in the House Office (J-35). They all require that you get other signatures before you get mine. In the case of adding/dropping a course and changing to or from pass-fail, you need the signatures of your concentration advisors or whoever is responsible for signing study cards and other official documents in your department (adding a course also requires the instructors’ signature). Cross-registration forms require that you get the signature of the instructor AND the registrar for that course before getting my signature.
Students ordinarily may not enroll in courses that meet at the same time or overlapping times. Exceptions to this rule are rarely granted by the Administrative Board and only in the specific circumstances described in The Handbook for Students. Students who have questions about these rules or who wish to enroll in two courses meeting at the same time or overlapping times and think they satisfy the stated conditions should meet with me BEFORE adding a course that creates a conflict.
