what if we have another major outside of eller, with different times? Will that be accepted for a change of cohort?
Advisor Stephanie Hanson (she/her)
26:34
That would definitely be something to include in your justification, if you do not have choice in courses for your other major
Marlene A Castaneda
27:27
for documentation of work schedules does that just mean the times that we are typically scheduled at work or do we need a letter from our supervisors about it?
Advisor Kevin Lundeberg (he/him/his)
28:09
A letter from your supervisor is best, a potential schedule is helpful if not
Advisor Stephanie Hanson (she/her)
28:16
I would encourage you to include as much information to justify a request for a cohort
Audrey Orkild
28:50

Marlene A Castaneda
28:56

Suspicion is different than being found responsible
Advisor Stephanie Hanson (she/her)

for athletics, and the conflict time. Can we fill it out ourselves, or do we need someone from athletics to sign it?
Career Coach - Jeff Welter (he/him)
