  • Rendering female models and celebrities on large-scale canvases and with quick, expressive brushstrokes, painter Katherine Bernhardt examines representations of beauty in mainstream media and fashion photography. She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

Approval to Attend Part Time

Overview

Are you thinking of dropping a course, withdrawing from the semester, applying for a hardship withdrawal for the current or a past semester? First consider the following questions:

  • Will you be registered full-time or part-time after dropping the class?
  • If you would be part-time, does your F-1 status allow this? (See below for exceptions to the full-time registration requirement.)
  • What are the Registration Office’s drop deadlines?
  • Graduate students, how will being on leave affect your F1 status?

In general, international students must be registered full-time. This is defined as 12 or more credits each semester for undergraduate students and 10 or more credits each semester for graduate students. Only one online class may count towards the minimum credit amount.

Reasons for attending part - time include 1) Documented medical issues; 2) Language difficulties in the first year of study supported by the LAS department; 3) In the final semester of study when one has below full-time units left to complete degree.

 

Application Procedure

You must receive approval from your Department and a Designated School Official (DSO) before dropping below a full course of study. Failure to do so may result in a termination of your immigration status. The Registrar Office will process Approval to Attend Part – Time (AAP) forms each semester during SEVIS registration.

 

Step 1: Obtain an Approval to Attend Part – Time form from the Registration Office.

Step 2: Complete and submit the Approval to Attend Part – Time form to the Registration Office.
