WINTER STUDY PROGRAM
REMINDERS ABOUT WSP REGISTRATION
All students who will be on campus during the 2011-2012 academic year must register for WSP. Registration will take place in the early part of fall semester.
If you are registered for a senior thesis in the fall which must be continued through Winter Study by departmental rules, you will be registered for your Winter

enrolled in this Sustaining Program, so no one should list this as a choice.

fewer than one out of ten students will qualify. A grade of pass means the student has performed satisfactorily. A grade of perfunctory pass signifies that a
student's work has been significantly lacking but is just adequate to deserve a pass.
If you have any questions about a project, see the instructor before you register.
