Contact your e-Portfolio advisor and continue working with him or her when the next INFO 289 semester begins. Do not wait for the Registrar's Office to contact you about INFO 1290 before working on/submitting your competencies.
Re-enrolling for INFO 289 after a No Credit grade
Students who receive a grade of No Credit for INFO 289 in their first attempt may re-enroll and pay for INFO 289 one more time only. If a student receives a grade of No Credit twice in INFO 289, that student will be disqualified from the MLIS program. If you received one previous No Credit grade in INFO 289 and wish to re-take the course, then two weeks before classes start contact the Student Services Team stating whether you are a regular or a special session student and request a permission number for INFO 289. After you receive your permission number you may register for INFO 289. You will not be able to register without a permission number.

Please contact the Student Services Team for a permission number. Make sure to state whether you are a regular or a special session student, your student ID number, and the reason for the late enrollment request. Late enrollment in INFO 289 is not encouraged, since there are only 12 weeks in the semester to complete a satisfactory e-Portfolio publication before the deadline.
