                                        AND                                                                                                                          

2-  Lab      The intensive portion (please note the dates and timezone)

·         Though section 70 is assigned the full 3 credit hours for the course (intensive is 0 credit hours), you must register for and complete the intensive portion to earn the full 3 credit hours.

·         All intensives will be offered virtually for the Fall 2021 term.   Intensives are mandatory and attendance/access for the full session is required.

·         Students may not add, drop or "switch" the online/blended portion section of a course after the Registration Deadline without consulting the CEGE office.  Changes made after the deadline without doing so may result in removal from a course and additional fees being charged to your account.
