My goal is to provide you with some structure for enrichment with the classes you are currently taking in Business. My website will act as a resource page that will host links and directions on where you can locate materials for your specific class.

    Many of you and your students are asking if they can still receive SU credit for their courses this spring semester and how to deal with any tuition payments due. 

    For students who have yet to submit a payment, they may hold off from doing so for now until the PA office sends out further communications to them and their parents/guardians about any adjustments to our calendar deadlines including our payment and drop deadlines. There will be no late fees, and we do not report past due payments to any credit bureau.

    For students who have already submitted a partial or full payment, we wish to assure those students and their families that if a spring-semester course section is canceled for any reason due to the pandemic or if a student wishes to drop their spring-semester course, that SU will refund their tuition in full. We will have more details to come for schools and students/parents regarding the drop process and the adjusted drop deadline of May 1st for spring-semester courses.

    We also want to assure our school partners and students, as noted above, that the University has no plans to cancel course sections at partner schools for SU credit at this time and that we remain committed to supporting our school partners to the best of our ability.

    Project Advance students – like campus undergraduate students at SU – now have the option to receive a standard letter grade or to request to receive a Pass/Fail grade for their SU spring-semester course(s). We will be sharing more information soon regarding the advising and other processes required before a student may opt for P/F and associated deadlines. There are many pros and cons to this option for students to carefully consider.

    Pass/Fail Grading Option (Deadline: May 8, 2020)
    Per our email to students and parents on April 10th, Project Advance students are eligible to request a pass/fail grade instead of a traditional letter grade for the Spring 2020 semester. Students may now request this grading option through our secure online portal at https://pass.supa.syr.edu/. We have sent this information to students and recommended that they consult with their instructors and school counselors before requesting this option. More information on the pros and cons of the pass/fail grading option can be found here: https://supa.syr.edu/covid-19/supa-covid-19-spring-2020-pass-fail-option/. The deadline for students to request the pass/fail grading option is May 8, 2020. While students may review and modify their requests up through May 8, no late requests will be accepted after that date.
    Drop Deadline (Deadline: May 1, 2020)
    The Spring 2020 drop deadline is May 1, 2020. Students who drop their Syracuse University course will receive a refund for any tuition that has been paid, and no record of that course will appear on their transcript. The Spring 2020 drop form can be found here: https://supa.syr.edu/wp-content/uploads/Drop-Request-Form-Sp20_REVISED.pdf. We have sent this information to students, so instructors should be aware we have recommended that students consult with them before requesting this option. Students will not have the option to reverse their decision after they drop the course and will lose the opportunity to earn Syracuse University credits for the course.

    Any questions regarding class instruction, SUPA credit, or school credit should be directed to my email (above). Or maybe just drop a quick note to say hi and let me know how you are all doing.
