Dean’s Notes 1-27-2020

January 27, 2020

TRUMBULL COLLEGE: Dean’s Notes for the week of January 27, 2020
Shopping period is over and schedules are set!! I hope you are all settling in nicely for the term and hope you enjoyed the weekend. The days are getting a little longer each day, which is a wonderful thing.
Have you attended any of the CTL’s Academic Strategies Workshops? You should! See the ones for the coming week and next week below!
Please note that I will be out of the office on Friday, Jan 31st and Monday, Feb 3rd. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with Leah on those days with any questions/concerns. Have a wonderful week! :)
Meeting with me:
To make an appointment, please visit the office or call/e-mail Leah at (203) 432-0722 (leah.jehan@yale.edu). When e-mailing, give Leah 2 or 3 times when you are free for ease of scheduling. Our hours are M-F 8:30-5:00pm and I have a set of office hours each day of the week. It is best to make an appointment, but feel free to stop by to see if I’m available. Keep in mind that we do not set up appointments during the evening/weekends.
ACADEMICS

A schedule with a course in a professional school requires an additional form, which is available in the TC Dean’s Office or here. Hand in the completed form with the syllabus attached by the deadline for your course schedule. [Note: SOM courses cannot be added to your schedule through OCS; they must be written by hand in the “include” section on your schedule. The form (above) for those SOM courses should be handed in to my office by February 4th, 5pm.]
Only four professional school credits can be offered toward the 36 credit requirement; however, students may enroll in more than four credits, understanding that all courses will remain on the academic record and be included in the GPA even if not offered toward the 36 credit requirement.
Courses at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and at a professional school cannot elect the CR/D/Fail option.
Credit for these courses on your transcript: When you put a Professional School course on your schedule, zero (0) course credits are recorded for the course until you hand in to my office the blue form (syllabus attached) and the Registrar’s office determines the course credits for that course after that. Some courses earn 1 course credit in Yale College and some earn .5 course credits (most commonly in SOM and EPH).
Deadline to apply for a Spring Term Leave of Absence: January 27, 2020. See me if you are thinking about requesting a leave of absence for this term.
Yale Degree Audit: Yale Degree Audit (YDA) is a tool that tracks your progress toward the bachelor’s degree. YDA is located on the Academics tab of Student Information System (SIS). YDA displays the Yale College degree requirements that you have already completed and those that are still pending. A “Look Ahead” feature shows you how future course enrollment might apply toward your degree. Yale Degree Audit does not take the place of face-to-face advising, although you may wish to share your audit with your adviser. Instead, it provides an easy-to-read summary of requirements, allowing you and your adviser to spend more time discussing course selection and academic goals. Do not rely solely on your degree audit when planning your courses; continue to use Yale’s standard systems for schedule planning and employ YDA as an additional tool. If you believe that academic information in your degree audit is incorrect, contact our office.

UPCOMING DATES AND DEADLINES

January 27 Deadline to apply for a spring term Leave of Absence. See me if you are thinking about requesting a leave of absence for this spring term.
February 4 Last day to withdraw from a course offered in the first half of the term without the course appearing on your transcript

To request a transfer from your assigned residential college to another college, you must submit an application that can be accessed via this link.
https://yalesurvey.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8ddhiM2D7XkoYTP

Here are a few things you should know before requesting a transfer of residential college:
1) Transfer requests are not guaranteed, and you are strongly encouraged to have a housing option within your own college should your transfer be declined.
2) In order to transfer to another residential college, you will need to have a current student in that residential college sponsor your transfer and agree to live with you for the next academic year. Please note that any single student may sponsor no more than two candidates to transfer into their college in an academic year.
3) If your transfer is approved it is a binding decision, so please consider your request carefully before submitting your application.
4) If your transfer is approved and you later change your mind about the housing arrangement you had committed to on your form, your transfer may be revoked. You may also be subject to the policies and penalties of the applicable residential college housing rules.
5) Each residential college will decide whether or not they wish to interview potential transfer candidates, and if they do interview them, how and when they might do so. It is your responsibility to check with the staff of the residential college you wish to transfer to.
6) As a reminder, students who wish to apply for a housing accommodation should submit accommodation requests along with supporting documentation (please refer students to SAS Documentation Guidelines) to Student Accessibility Services by March 1st. Time is of the essence as requests need to be reviewed by the Accommodations Committee. SAS will notify Deans as requests are received and as decisions are determined.
7) Only completed applications may be submitted and the deadline is Friday, February 7, 2020, at 11:59 pm EST. Students will be notified of the transfer decisions by the end of February.
