End of Semester Academic Procedures
It is hard to believe it is mid-April and the end of the semester is upon us. Before we begin to think about the summer, I would like to remind you of several policies drawn from the Academic Policies and Procedures section of the Undergraduate Catalog.
Reminder of Textbook Ordering Deadline for Fall 2013 Term
This is a reminder of the April 1 deadline for ordering reading materials for your fall courses. In 2007 the Tennessee General Assembly passed a law designed to control textbook costs at Tennessee public colleges and universities. The book order deadlines need to be observed by all faculty members to meet legislative requirements.
Change in waitlist policy
I want to let you know about two important changes in our waitlist policy. To help us better judge course demand, we are no longer allowing two common registration practices that have made registration inefficient.
The Office of the Provost has launched Vol Vision, a planning process to engage the campus in a robust dialogue regarding UT Knoxville’s future. Our goal is to formalize a plan that represents the best thinking on how UT Knoxville will navigate a challenging and sometimes uncertain future, but also one that brings unparalleled opportunities.
