Student Professional Development Program: Requirement Reminder!
The Student Professional Development Program consists of four workshops and is required for all College of Business Majors. Beginning with the 2010-2011 catalogue, all four workshops must be completed before students will be admitted into the College. Sign up for workshops at the Student Professional Development Program website. Students already accepted into the College of Business should complete all workshops by their junior year.
NEW Billing Policy: Presently, the new accounting system does not accept pre-payments. You will be billed within 2 days of each workshop date, and can pay your fees anytime after they appear on your student bill. We ask that you pay your fees, in full, by the end of every semester. Graduating seniors, with a balance, will not graduate until all fees are paid.
For more information about the Student Professional Development Program, contact Justin Gardner or Sheryl Poirier.
