Please limit the number of color copies you print in BRNG 4121. Our bill last month was very high. Check your settings on your computer and make sure you are not defaulting to "color" even when a document is just black and white. Thank you!

At the October Graduate Council meeting, a resolution passed that will expand the language in the manual dealing with S/U grades in research. This updated language will be effective with the Fall 2018 semester. While the current policy concerning the receipt of two consecutive "U" grades in 69800/69900 will continue to be in effect, the policy has been expanded to include language that aims to include written minimum expectations and deliverables for master's and Ph.D. research registrations. This may happen via a new online registration form that will be unfolded by the Office of the Registrar or via other discussion and documentation. Further, the new policy requires departmental/program and student action after the receipt of one "U" grade that obligates the department/program to develop a plan for satisfactory continuation. Please see the complete policy at the following link: https://collaborate.education.purdue.edu/edci/docs/GCdoc17-23a,%20TaskForceRpt%20on%20S-U%20Grades,rev.10.12.17.pdf
