Semester Conversion is Coming

Rochester Institute of Technology is converting to semesters on August 26th, 2013.  The university will be preparing for the switch to semesters over the next year.  This blog was set up by the Semester Conversion team to answer questions and give out information that will help students prepare for the conversion and make sure they stay on track and graduate on time. 

In the next year (2012-13 academic year) it will be extremely important for students to meet with their advisors and set up an Individual Advisement Plan (I.A.P.).  These plans help prepare students for the switch to semesters because classes and requirements are going to be shifting within majors as we switch from quarters to semesters.

The IAP will include a break down of the requirements students will need to take (classes and co-op included) in order to graduate on time. 

Your academic adivsor will be contacting you over the course of the next academic year to sit down and talk about your I.A.P. (students do not need to initiate these meetings).  These meetings will allow you to ask questions and plan out your remaining career at RIT.  This IAP is not a binding agreement but a draft of what students should follow in order to graduate on time as planned.

Stay tuned for more information!
