Prior Incomplete (I) or Report in Progress (RP) in LIBR 289
If you are completing an Incomplete grade from a prior semester for LIBR 289 (and you initially enrolled in Libr 289 prior to Fall 2013), you do not need to enroll on MySJSU again for the course. Contact your e-Portfolio advisor and continue working with him or her when the next LIBR 289 semester begins.
If you initially enrolled in Libr 289 in Fall 2013 or later and were awarded a report in progress (RP) grade you will have to enroll in the one unit UNV 290. The fee is $280. The Registrar's Office will contact you about enrollment.
Re-enrolling for LIBR 289 after a No Credit grade
Students who receive a grade of No Credit for LIBR 289 in their first attempt may re-enroll and pay for LIBR 289 one more time only. If a student receives a grade of No Credit twice in LIBR 289, that student will be disqualified from the MLIS program. If you received one previous No Credit grade in LIBR 289 and wish to re-take the course, then two weeks before classes start email Vicki Robison (Student Services Coordinator) stating whether you are a regular or a special session student and request a permission number for LIBR 289. After you receive your permission number you may register for LIBR 289. You will not be able to register without a permission number.
Enrolling Late in LIBR 289
Please contact Vicki Robison, Student Services Coordinator, 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 LIBR 289 is not encouraged, since there are only 12 weeks in the semester to complete a satisfactory e-Portfolio publication before the deadline.
