Fall 2015 Course Schedule

We are in the process of finalizing CRNs and dates/times for our fall 2015 GS courses. This section will be updated prior to the spring 2015 registration windows for students to register for fall 2015.

We are in the process of hiring two new Student Success Coaches who will start on or around June 1, 2015. This means four of the GS 197 sections will have instructors listed as “TBD” until hiring is complete.
