Intake Appointments for Incoming Students Filling Up - July 2018
As the Fall semester draws closer, intakes are continuing to fill up. We are booked well through the month of August and have only a few openings left before the semester begins. The intake appointment must be completed before accommodations can be put into place for classes.
We are diligently working to fit as many students into the schedule as possible. If you have not yet filled out an application and provided documentation to our office, please begin this process as quickly as possible to ensure the soonest possible intake. Directions on how to complete this process can be found under the "DRS Connect" tab.
**If you will have the need for an interpreter, CART/Captioning, or accommodations for a visual impairment, please contact our office as soon as possible.**
Kurzweil in the Testing Center - June 2018
For the purposes of testing, students will no longer be using their personal Kurzweil accounts.
Kurzweil accounts specific to each testing station have been set up to ensure the integrity of the test taking process. The dictionary, translation, spell check, word prediction, brainstorm, and outline features have all been disabled and will not be able available anytime during the test.
Going forward, this will be the protocol unless otherwise allowed by your instructor and requested from the DRS Office at least 7 days prior to taking a test.
Updates to the Academic Advisement process - May 2018
CGCC is always looking for ways to imporve student success and make your interactions with faculty and staff as productive as possible. Ensuring that students reach the department best equipped to address their needs is a key component of that goal.
As many of you know, there have been recent updates to CGCC's course catalog and how students are placed in these courses. For this reason and per campus protocol, DRS staff will no longer be able to advise students on class placement or register students for their classes.
All DRS students with inquiries regarding class scheduling and class placement will be referred to the Coyote Center for Academic Advisement or Admissions and Records. These departments are best suited to give accurate and up-to-date advisement in these areas.
We appreciate your understanding during this time of transition, and please let us know if you have any questions.
