OFFICE OF ACADEMIC SUPPORT SERVICES
We understand that childcare, commuting, and part-time work can add stress to your very full academic schedule. If you have special circumstances that you would like us to consider while scheduling your required courses (the registration for which takes place prior to BannerWeb elective registration), please submit your request to the Office of Academic Support Services (email@example.com or fax, 413/585-7994). Such requests must arrive at OAS by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, 2010, in order to be considered.
Students interested in waiving course 330, Child Development from Infancy to Adolescence in its Social Context, and taking 333, Developmental Deviations in Childhood and Adolescence, should consult the website and meet the February 18 deadline. If you have questions after reading the information on the website, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check your mail for a postcard announcing BannerWeb registration in March. Complete information will soon be available on the SSW website and February SSW Bulletin.
Any student who wishes to be in an advanced section of 331, Comparative Psychodynamic Theories for Clinical Social Work Practice, must take and pass an exam that consists of reading a case provided by the instructor and analyzing it according to drive, ego and object.
The deadline for indicating your interest in taking the exam is January 14, 2011. If a critical mass of students expresses interest, the exam will be mailed to those students on January 18. The exam must be returned to the registrar by January 28.
If there are enough eligible students to constitute a section, those who pass the exam will be notified. Placement in this section will have potential impact on your ability to schedule other courses.
FINANCIAL AID OFFICE
Student bills are sent out monthly with the exception of May and August. (In May students are in transit and getting ready to come to SSW. In August, students are relocating to their field sites and addresses are being updated during this time.)
On the horizon...
||You should have received a financial aid packet by now. If you have not, please contact the Financial Aid Office immediately.
January 28, 2011 is the deadline for the submission of the HSR application. Data collection should ideally be completed by the end of March. These interim deadlines were added in the spirit of keeping the work moving forward.
Please remember to return your followup survey for the Educational Strategies Study by January 15, 2011 to be included in the draw for three $75 Amazon Gift Certificates.

Thank you to all who have participated! We appreciate your feedback.
