New Client E-mail 6/27/13For those of you who are just joining us, here is a link to our website resources page where you can view all the e-mails we have sent to our new clients. Feel free to refer back to this to make sure you haven’t missed anything. There is also a checklist on this page that may be helpful to you as you make sure you have everything done prior to the seminar (this is updated as new items are added so not a final list) - http://www.uab.edu/engineering/iem/component/content/article/173-resources/354-welcome-to-new-clients (be sure to bookmark the page since it not a published link).
Registering for IEM Classes
I will be sending you instructions on registering for classes within the next week. The e-mail will contain a RAC (registration access code) or PIN which is required for you to be able to register each semester. Before each semester begins, I will send you an e-mail with information about the classes you need to register for and your new RAC since that number will change each semester. We control the registration and seats for our classes so don’t worry about not being able to register for our classes as soon as registration opens for the university.
The list of required or recommended books and software that you need for classes will be distributed prior to the start of classes each semester (typically when you receive instructions to register for classes). Books are available at any of the UAB bookstores or you can purchase from your favorite bookseller.
Book lists can also be viewed on the UAB Barnes & Noble Bookstore website at http://uab.bncollege.com/ by selecting the courses you are enrolling in.
Full Time vs. Part-Time
The IEM degree is not designed to be a full-time degree, but some of you may be required to be a full-time student because of your international status or for financial aid reasons. If you are an international student and need a course for CPT, you need to register for the IEM Special Topics course that is set up each Fall and Spring. If you do not need a CPT course, you may register for any course that UAB offers. The Fall course will be 2 hours and the Spring course will be 3 hours and this course will help you be a full-time student while enrolled in IEM. This fall, Professor Don Appleby will be teaching a Special Topics in Innovation course. Everyone is welcome to register for this course. Please note that this course is not required for the IEM degree and is considered an elective course so it will not count toward IEM degree requirements.
UAB Educational Assistance
If you or your spouse is employed at UAB full-time, you are probably eligible for tuition assistance. If you qualify, please contact Maria before August 5 for some special instructions about your registration.
If you are unable to attend the seminar in person, please mark your calendar to participate in an Online Networking activity - Thursday, August 15 from 10:45-11:30 am CST.
Again, let us know if you have questions about anything – we are here to help you!
