  2. Please note that the completion of the course evaluation in Qualtrics will not automatically check off your completion in Canvas. Checking for your completion of the survey is a manual process (we see if it’s completed in Qualtrics, then manually enter the check into Canvas student by student), so please be patient and do not take the course evaluation multiple times.


This course is graded on a P/U (pass/unsatisfactory) basis. As of Fall 2014, we will no longer be awarding IPs for incomplete work. When you enroll in an advising course, you must finish all assignments by the end of the semester in which you are enrolled. If you do not, you will get a U and must re-enroll and restart the course the next semester. If you have any pending IPs from previous semesters, you have until the end of Fall 2014 to complete your work and get your grade changed.
