African Studies Certificate
Seniors who wish to apply for a Five College African Studies Certificate should submit a preliminary application to Professor Holly Hanson, Skinner 314, by Thursday, December 2. These will be reviewed by the Five College African Studies Council on December 3, so that prospective certificate recipients will know whether they have met the requirements of the certificate before they begin their last semester. Applications are available on the African American and African Studies bulletin board next to Skinner 312. The African Studies Certificate requires six courses that have more than 50 percent Africa content, including at least one course in the humanities, one in the social sciences, and one that provides a historical overview, and proficiency at the intermediate level in an indigenous or colonial language of Africa. Students must have received a grade of B or higher in all courses proposed for the certificate. Students who wish to apply for a certificate should address questions to professors Samba Gadjigo, John Lemly, or Holly Hanson.

Panel on Taking Self-Scheduled Exams:
A Crucial Event for First-Year Students
Tuesday, December 7, 7:30 pm, Hooker Auditorium This session will offer information and discussion on procedures for taking self-scheduled exams, the role of the honor code, and strategies for planning and preparation. Panel participants will be student advisers, exam coordinators, and Leah B. Glasser, dean of first-year studies.

Student Extensions/Incompletes
Faculty legislation stipulates that “an instructor may report a student’s work as incomplete only if the student has been given an excuse by the director of the Health Center or the dean of the College because of an emergency.” This means that instructors may not accept exams, or papers due in lieu of exams, after noon on Tuesday, December 21, unless authorized by the director of the Health Center for medical reasons, or one of the academic deans in the dean of the College’s office for unforeseen emergencies. All other course work must be turned in by the last day of classes. Again, the deadline for students to request an extension for incomplete work is Tuesday, December 21, at noon.
