  • Learn about all the resources available
  • Get Involved - But in moderation
  • Manage your time wisely

Time Management
Sixty Hour Principle (or How to Fit Everything
Into One Week)
Rule 1 Read (important links
you need to know)
  • Email Bearcat On-Line (BOL) Click Here
  • AS Bulletin Website - http//
  • One Stop Student Service http//
  • Registrar's Office - http//
  • Blackboard Learning Center - (many classes will
    use this online tool) Click Here

You have a BOL email account
This is the main method of communication at UC
and important information is sent to this account
virtually everyday. Check your account regularly!
Rule 2 - Know Deadlines
  • They're posted everywhere (including Onestop).
  • You are responsible for knowing deadlines.
  • There ARE consequences.
  • If you don't know, ask an advisor.

Drop and Grade Replacement
  • You have 58 days to drop a course or to turn in a
    Grade Replacement Application
  • Students have the option of replacing up to 15
    credit hours during their entire tenure at UC.
  • Applications are available in room 102 and must
    be submitted in advance.
  • It is highly recommended that students work with
    an academic advisor prior to submitting an
    application for Grade replacement.

What is Full-time/Part-time?
  • 12-18 hours is full-time
  • Tuition is the same for 12-18 hours
  • Less than 12 hours is part-time
  • Financial aid, scholarships, athletic
    eligibility, and insurance may be affected
  • Taking more than 18 hours will result in a per
    hour surcharge
  • 15-18 hours is the maximum load for freshman and
    sophomore years
