This class is an excellent choice to help students who want a powerful elective or the textbook comprehension and retention strategies they may need to be successful in any class they are taking. CLSS 1190 works for first-year students, those planning for graduate school, or any students in between.

Thanks to all those who planned and attended our annual UVU Advisement Conference last Friday at the Wasatch Campus! Please see the following items and requests now that we are back on campus hard at work.
- Nearly 150 people enjoyed the informative sessions and time together. Adam Black and the planning committee did a wonderful job and are to be commended for their tremendous work!
- As always, Rachael Solomon from Advisor Training and Development offered outstanding support to the planning committee and will be missed since she will be leaving UVU. Rachael has accepted an important position with the American Red Cross office in Provo where she will be working as their Development Director. Rachael will be in the office this week and her final day is Friday 6/14. Please feel free to drop by (LC 403) to wish her well and enjoy an ice cream sandwich from the freezer!
- A conference evaluation survey will arrive in your email box this week and your feedback is invaluable. If you attended the conference, please take a moment to complete this evaluation when it arrives to provide feedback for next year’s committee.
- And finally, congratulations to the advisement award nominees and winners listed below! In addition to a beautiful trophy, the winners each receive a $500 cash award. As you can imagine, each year selecting winners is a challenge for the awards committee with so many outstanding advisors and administrators.

If your department has made any Articulation Agreements with another institution, please send that information to the Transfer Credit Office. We would like to help you get them set up. Our office needs a record of these agreements to ensure the courses are transferring correctly for students. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

We are looking forward to this year’s Advisement Conference and wanted to give out one last bit of information. As some of the afternoon breakout session options may require mild physical activity, please feel free to dress accordingly. Loose clothing that allows for movement and comfortable shoes are recommended. Other, less strenuous activities are also available, but if you would like to participate in the physical activities, please plan for this option.
Also, at this point registration has been closed and we are expecting a full house. We are looking forward to seeing you there, the weather should be perfect and we have a full slate of sessions and information ready for our staff.
The Advisement Conference Planning Team
I just wanted to let you all know that for degree-seeking programs, Wolverine Track should now have two new requirements in the “Degree” block. One for Missing (‘M’) and one for Incomplete (‘I’) grades. These requirements should only show as unmet if a student has a Missing or an Incomplete grade (which have always prevented graduation). Hopefully it will make these much easier to spot. These requirements should show up after the student has completed credits at UVU.
A side-effect of this is that the “Degree Progress Bar” for most students will receive a slight bump towards 100% complete, so you may get emails from students asking about why it changed. This bump will be more pronounced in degree programs with fewer requirements. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks and hope this helps!
Please be aware, our Early Alert program has now started for summer classes. Students who are having attendance issues or academic concerns, as indicated by their faculty, will be receiving an email from our office. Our Retention Mentors will follow up with phone calls to make sure students have contacted their instructors and are aware of support services available to them or help them drop classes as needed. These Early Alert emails will continue for the semester and block classes. For more details on Early Alert, visit http://www.uvu.edu/retention/faculty/earlyalert.html.
We will not run midterm grades for the summer blocks or semester this year.
Please feel free to email me at any time with questions or concerns.

Thank you once again for all your hard work with our students. When I talk with each of you I can feel that you care about your students success. Students need to be encouraged through their difficult times and advisors seem to be in the right place at the right time to do this. Semester standings and holds (all but warning) for spring 2013 have been run. I have also sent e-mails to students about their academic standing. Warning holds will be run next week. For your information, I run the warning holds a little later as to help with the influx of students needing our help.
Just a reminder
Probation and cont probation must do the probation workshop and talk with an advisor in order to have their hold removed. Please review their workshop with them and discuss with them how to be a successful student. Three formats for the probation workshop are available. Online (free), in person(free), and workbook ($5.00).
Cont. Probation must also see Morris and he will remove their CP hold.
If you have questions don’t hesitate to call or e-mail.
Due to updates to the Online Graduation Application System, we expect the Fall 2013 Graduation Application to open on July 1st (instead of early June).

Summer registration process for ENGH 0990, ENGL1010, and ENGL2010/2020*
- student registers for ENGL 1010 in the first block
- beginning the 3rd week of the first block (i.e. May 20 and beyond) the student fills out a course clearance form (available at the English & Literature department front office in LA 114) and has his/her ENGL 1010 instructor sign the form indicating that the student is passing ENGL1010 with a C– grade or higher
- student returns the signed Clearance Form to the English & Literature department
- the English & Literature Department staff input an override for ENGL 2010/2020 on the second block
*The above process is also followed for students registered in ENGH 0990 during the first block and wishing to register for ENGL 1010 during the second block.
Fall registration: If a student is registered for ENGL 1010 during summer 2013 they are eligible to register for ENGL 2010/2020 for fall 2013 without an override or any other accommodation from the English & Literature department. This same is also true if a student is registered for ENGH 0990 during summer 2013 and wishes to register for ENGL 1010 during fall 2013.
