Final Project Preparation

During the information session last night, I became aware that many students do not know the importance of maintaining their course materials in preparation for the final project. It is highly recommended that students maintain textbooks, readings, coursework, and other materials for each course in a personal computer file or folder. Students may not have access to Canvas courses once they have finished the course. These materials will be essential for completing the final project.

All information regarding the final project can be found on the Academic Advising website:https://academicadvising.wordpress.com/final-project/

Please contact Pam McGlynn with any questions.
