    The spring quarter is in full swing!  Please see below for some important information regarding dates and upcoming events!


    All Albers students have a BUE advising hold on their account so that you meet with an Academic Advisor to discuss how the new Core Requirements will affect you.  Many of you have already met with an advisor regarding the new Core Requirements.  We are working to release those holds.  We have added walk-in advising (see below) to the spring quarter in order to meet with all of our students.  For many of you the transition to the new Core will have very minimal impact, however, you will still need to meet with an advisor.  The Core hold will prevent you from registering for the summer quarter and/or the fall quarter.  As we get closer to summer and fall reqistration (May 16/May 20) our calendars will get booked and our walk-ins will become busier.  Please plan ahead and meet with us early! 


    Freshman, this is likely the quarter that you will take the Excel Level I Certification Exam.  There are dates available, you can sign up by going to the Albers webpage in Undergraduate Resources.

    Transfers, remember this requirements is to be completed by the end of your first quarter.  If you are a fall quarter or winter quarter transfer and you still haven't passed the Exam, this should be a priority for you.  You will continue to have registration issues until you pass this.  Spring quarter transfers, this is a requirment for you to complete by the end of this quarter.
